Chalking Points 28 | Apples and Ananas

Artie Q. PebbletonUncategorized

Deusgero wanted to know about why English-speakers call pineapples “pineapples”, but pretty much everyone else in the pineapple-eating world calls them “ananas”. What’s the deal with that, right? LET’S FIND OUT.

UPDATE: Molecularpoet on Reddit has informed me that speakers of Argentine Spanish call these fruits “ananas” also. It stands to reason that many parts of South America where Guarani is also spoken would call them ananas instead of piñas. Thanks, Molecularpoet! Sweet username!
