πορτοκάλι - orange fruit
πορτοκαλί - orange color
Τhanks for clarifying :D
Same with: (ο) καφές - the coffee and καφέ - brown (color)
Is this a loan word from Turkish or the other way around?
The word is of Italian origin (portogallo, because Portugal was the main source of orange import to Europe), so I think it's a loan word for both Turkish and Greek! ^.^
Is "πορτοκάλι" related to the name "Portugal"? Just my curiosity
Portugal is thought to be originally "port of the grail" i.e. the Holy Grail
Why σύζυγος? And not γυναίκα?
The woman is pronounced what? Isn't it γινεκα ? Or something like that
Yep. Γυναικα (yee-ne-ka) υ is pronounced like ι, ει, η, or οι and αι is pronounced like ε
