Would someone be able to tell me the derivation of this noun? Is it slavic?
No. Ice cream in Romanian happens to be the feminine for frozen (înghețat) so înghețată.
So if we want to say the sea is frozen we would say marea este înghețată but we wouldn't mean ice cream.
And it seems to come from Latin's inglaciare.
I see. Thank you for the explanation!
Interesting. Like gelato and helado then.
How exactly is this ‘gh’ digraph used & pronounced in Romanian? Is it like Italian, ‘ghe’ and ‘ghi’? Thank you.
