I have a dictionary which gives only ”furcă” as fork. Could somebody here explain why in Duo only furculiță appears? Is "furcă” formal and ”furculiță” popular?
'Furcă' is typically used to refer to a pitchfork. 'Furculiță' is used for the eating implement.
Furculita is the fork which you use for eating while furca again is a bigger fork used in garden, like a trident
In English we would ALWAYS say a plate and a knife and fork and never a plate and a fork and knife. Is there any rule in Romanian to cover the order of of knife, fork and spoon?
linguriță : lingură :: furculiță : furculă. Can you call a big fork a 'furculă'?
Romanian is my first language and I have never heard anyone call 'furculă' a fork that you eat with.
