Will/should the course accept "borscht"? I didn't try it, but it is a fairly common spelling in English, and, um, it's what my tablet keyboard suggests.

Vinnfred explained on another page that this is more than just "beet soup" as there are words for that as well. This is a special Ukrainian beet soup that is named this way.

'Borsht soup' should be accepted

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Kristin_v

First, why "borsht"? Where did you get this word? And second, borshch - it is already sort of soup, you do not need to specify. This is like saying "coca-cola water".

I think Ifor Got has a point, since  "borsch, borsht and bortsch" are all accepted spellings in English.

So I hear but borshch, however you spell it is "a beetroot soup" so saying borshch soup is like saying "tomato soup soup".

The transliteration (cyrillic alphabet to latin alphabet) is glitchy and incorrect often. Try spelling it "lyublyu".

My symbol picture is borshch. Ha ha. The first thing I learn in Ukraine culture. There was a panel, bilboard in a real life photo that promote borshch by saying "I don't eat burger, I eat borshch". We all should protect traditions even if we need to hurry in real modern life. Never tried this deliciously looking soup. Maybe, I taste it in Ukraine in the future, who knows but I hope.
