Etymology[edit]

From Hungarian paprika, from Serbo-Croatian pàprika, from pȁpar, from Proto-Slavic *pьpьrь, from Latin piper, from Ancient Greek πέπερι ‎(péperi, pepper), from Sanskrit पिप्पलि ‎(pippali, long pepper).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Paprika m, f ‎(genitive Paprika or Paprikas, plural Paprika or Paprikas)

  1. (chiefly masculine) paprika (spice)
  2. (chiefly feminine) bell pepper

Usage notes[edit]

  • The genitive is (der) Paprika in feminine use, and (des) Paprika or (des) Paprikas in masculine use.
  • The plural is most often unchanged Paprika when preceded by an article, determiner, or numeral, and most often Paprikas when standing alone. This distinction is just a tendency, however.
