Etymology[edit]

From Italian bruschetta.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (see "Usage notes" below) enPR: bro͝o-skĕtʹə, bro͝o-shĕtʹə, IPA(key): /bɹʊˈskɛtə/, /bɹʊˈʃɛtə/

Noun[edit]

bruschetta (plural bruschettas or bruschette)

  1. A light Italian dish of toasted bread with a savoury topping

Usage notes[edit]

  • The pronunciation /brʊˈskɛtə/ (with a "sk" sound as in "school") is close to the Italian pronunciation. The pronunciation /brʊˈʃɛtə/ (with a "sh" sound as in "Schubert") comes from interpreting the sch trigraph as if it were German, in which case it would be "sh". While the latter pronunciation diverges from the Italian one, it is commonly heard.
