Does this specifically refer to ground pepper? Or is it the vegetable? I think pepper's actually a fruit, but what have you.

Another pronunciation query - should the ending of 'peppar' have the 'er' sound of the recording or should it really be an 'ar' sound?

November 18, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gealach24

It should be "ar"

Why is it not a pepper? Is just grinding pepper into her mouth?

Pepper (the spice) is uncountable in both English and Swedish. This is not referring to the vegetable (bell pepper), which is named "paprika" in Swedish.
