  • Good job. In need of a few rectification: use شيفلور instead of... use قوق instead of خرشوف, use بورو instead of...
    Take into consideration the most common words. Congratulations for this brilliant product.

  • Hi Mohamed!
    Thank you for your comment.
    Those are not actually rectifications, but rather possible variants.
    In my region, we call artichoke : Khershouf خرشوف, and it’s true that some people call it qouq : قوق
    We say Shoufla شوفلا for cauliflower, other people prefer to pronounce it closer to French: شيفلور Shiflour.
    Same for leek, some pronounce exactly like in French, pwarro پوارو, but others maybe say it like you said, بورو, boro/poro.
