Italian: tazza German: Tasse French: tasse Spanish: taza Portuguese: taça Esperanto: taso
There is also the word "tas" in Turkish, but it means "bowl", not "cup". All of these come from the Arabic word "طاس". [tas, t sound is guttural, a is long, spelled like a in "cat", s is spelled like the s in "sea".]
Thanks, but I think these words need some transcriptions. I'll add one to mine too
Dutch: kop or kopje (diminutives are big in Dutch). Locally, also tas can be heard, although generally tas is used for bag (related to the German word Tasche). NB The Flemish use «tas» instead of «kop» or «kopje».
I had difficulty in understanding the word when listening, even when I saw it in writing.
tazza = cup ; bicchiere = glass. It was a mistake in Duolingo because these are 2 different objects
I'm Italian and I can confirm this. a bicchiere is usually made of glass (Italian: vetro) or plastic, and is more likely to have a longer shape. A tazza is usually a non-transaparent cup with a handle, commonly used for breakfast.
Tazza is the "place" where you drink tea,or coffee,or milk and the bicchiere is the place where you drink water, or coke, or wine...
The pronunciation is really bad. I'm Italian, I was playing with my friend's phone and I realized that this voice really sucks
As an Italian the pronounciation is good. Why have you said that the pronounciation is bad?
The pronunciations aren't always great--hazard of a computer-generated voice--but they can be really, really bad on the mobile apps.
Hint. When using the hints always choose the first word. It seems the various areas of DL are not in sync. Reporting the issue will possibly get it fixed. ?
The pronunciation here wasn't very clear (and I suspect it may be incorrect) so I just want someclarification: The two "zz"'s in "tazza"... is it pronounced "ts" (like pizza) or "zz" (like buzz)?
Yeah u r right. Its like pizza "-zza" ver like this way. Same pronunciation. Never like buzz
If u speak or understand spanish French and Italian would be so much easier it has helped me and i just started i was pretty easy for me to learn italian and french again i am still learning and i do have some mistakes :)
why does duo say like "la tatza" ?????????????????????????????????? please explain to this very confused person
This is how Italians pronounce 'ts'. Like the German word for time, 'zeit'. but in some regions in Italy it may sound less like the 't' and 's' melted together, and more like 'dz' or 'tz'.
Z and ZZ in Italian can sometimes sound not like the English pronunciation of z. And sometimes they do. Like the city 'Piza' where it sounds like the English z. But the food 'Pizza' where it sounds like 'Pitsa'. Yet 'Zucchero' (Italian for Sugar) has one z and it sounds like 'Tsukero'. Confusing? most definitely! I guess we simply have to memorize each word.
Omg, veeeeeeery confusing for a beginner (my 2-nd day of italian) :) but you are right, it's with all languages like that: there are rules, and than there are words without rules. We simply have to learn them by heart.
Why isn't the word "glass" correct for "tazza"? Cup and Glass are synonymous, aren't they?
No, just go on google and search for glass and cup individually then look at the images. Even cups made of glass are still called cups-glass cups.
the exact previous question was to translate "the cup" and the answer was "il bicchiere". it also had pictures of both cups and glasses..
these objects are different. the cup is the "place" where you drink milk or coffee or tea. Instead, the glass is the place where you drink water,wine, coke...
What is the diiference among " il" , " la", "gli" and " I(i)" ??? please someone tell
