Paprika
Examples of the fruits of the plant species Capsicum annuum, called bell peppers and chilli peppers, used to make paprika. Both bell peppers and the spice are called paprika in many languages, but not in English.

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Hungarian paprika, from Serbo-Croatian pàprika, from pȁpar, from Proto-Slavic *pьpьrь, from Latin piper, from Ancient Greek πέπερι (péperi, pepper), from Indo-Aryan; compare Sanskrit पिप्पलि (pippali, long pepper). Akin to paprikash.

    Finnish[edit]

    Etymology[edit]

    From Hungarian paprika.

    Noun[edit]

    paprika

    1. paprika (spice made of dried, ground fruit of the milder varieties of Capsicum annuum)
    2. pepper, bell pepper, sweet pepper (the fruit of a sweet variety of Capsicum annuum, used as vegetable)

    Usage notes[edit]

    The fruit, and the spice made of spicy varieties of Capsicum annuum as well as of other Capsicum species are called chili or chilipippuri in Finnish. The spice may also be called chilijauhe. There's no clear line of distinction between paprika and chili. Also the size of the fruit counts. The large varieties are often called paprika even if they are quite hot.
