Friulian (Furlan)

Friulian  or affectionately marilenghe in Friulian, friulano in Italian, (also Eastern Ladin), is a Romance language belonging to the Rhaetian family, spoken in the Friuli region of northeastern Italy. Friulian has around 800,000 speakers, the vast majority of whom also speak Italian. It is sometimes called Eastern Ladin, since it shares the same roots as Ladin, although over the centuries it has diverged under the influence of surrounding languages, including German, Italian, Venetian, and Slovene. Documents in Friulian are attested from the 11th century, and poetry and literature dating as far back as 1300. By the 20th century, there was a revival of interest in the language, which has continued to this day. (Ref: Wikipedia)

Friulian on

To find foods and foods and food-related items in in Fruilian you may search by any of the following terms:
Eastern Friuli Friulian Friuliana Furlan Giulia Giuliana Italian Italy Ladin Marilenghe Venezia Venezian Veneziana

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages. The traveller in Friuli may not be precisely certain which language is in use, and can search using more general terms such as 'Italian''.

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of horn shell, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'Furlan horn shell' and then click on 'Translate from English'

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches such as  'Italian' may help in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
