Ido[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from English glucose, French glucose, German Glukose, Italian glucosio, Russian глюко́за (gljukóza), Spanish glucosa, ultimately from Ancient Greek γλῠκῠ́ς (glukús). The "i" vowel was chosen instead of a more common "u" to be parallel with the Greek pronunciation (/y/ and /i/) and to be resemble other words derived from the same root: glicerio (glyceria, panicularia, manna-grass), glicerino (glycerine), glicino (glycine, glucina), glikokolo (glycocoll).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ɡliˈkoso/
  • Hyphenation: gli‧ko‧so

Noun[edit]

glikoso (uncountable)

  1. (chemistry) glucose
