Recipe ali receipt?

Slovenci pogosto zamenjujemo besedi recipe in receipt, čeprav nimata ničesar skupnega. Največ težav nam dela izgovarjava.

  • Recipe izgovorimo /resəpi/ in pomeni kuharski recept.
  • Receipt izgovorimo /rɪˈsiːt/ in pomeni račun.

Primera:
I would like to return the T-shirt but unfortunately I haven’t got the receipt.
I would like to prepare that delicious cake but unfortunately I haven’t got the recipe.

Boste v lekarno odnesli zdravniški ali kuharski recept?

Pogostokrat napačno uporabimo tudi besedi recipe in prescription. Obe v slovenščino prevedemo kot recept, vendar se recipe nanaša na kuharski, prescription pa na zdravniški recept.

Primera:
I can’t sleep at night so I asked my doctor for a prescription for sleeping pills.
Can you give me your recipe for that delicious chocolate cake?
