i wanna eat pasta too. :(
I always thought macaroni was μακαρόνια?
Where does "ζυμαρικά" come from? Ευχαριστώ!
Ultimately from ζύμη "yeast, dough", I imagine, since pasta is made from dough.
Η ζύμι = pastry, dough......η μαγιά is yeast for brewing and making bread. Το ζυμάρι is also pastry, dough and pasta is called τα ζυμαρικά. The word enzyme comes from medieval Greek enzumos = leavened.
Why "the kid eats pasta" is marked as wrong?
It shouldn't be. Please remember to take a screenshot when you are in doubt so that we can see if you made any mistakes or not.
I see the accent is on the last letter, on the last "a"... so why isn't the pronunciation "zimariká"?
It is, but it's not a human voice, so the audio may be a bit off at times. It sounds rather ok here.
Greeks mostly use "μακαρόνια"(>makaronia) instead of ζυμαρικά(>zimarika). Zimarika is correct but not used as much in everyday language :)
