Slovene[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic, cognate with Slovak smotana, Russian смета́на ‎(smetána). According to Vasmer the Slavic words are unrelated to German Schmant ‎(sour milk). However, other scholars (Jacob Grimm, Václav Machek) consider Schmant a loanword from Slavic[1].

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

smétana f ‎(genitive smétane, uncountable)

  1. cream (oily part of milk)
