Watching that first video, I now realize that you call that big wooden spoon a “spoon”. I thought English had a unique name for it. 😮
We differentiate between types and sizes of spoons:
- A small spoon is lyžička – you stir your coffee with this one.
- A normal spoon is lyžica – you eat soups with this one.
- And the big wooden spoon is called varecha – you cook with this one.
Lyžička is just a diminutive of lyžica. It’s the same type of spoon, just in smaller size.
Varecha is even derived from word variť (to cook).
