Mistaken Words: Taste and Flavour

Published by My Lingua Academy on

Words “taste” and “flavour” are not interchangeable, as many may think, and we use them differently.

The word TASTE refers to flavours we can feel with our senses: salty, sour, sweet or bitter.

The word FLAVOUR refers to the quality of something which affects the sense of taste.

Taste and flavour are both verbs and nouns.

That soup tastes much better with garlic in it.

I like the taste of that chocolate cake.

The cooks flavoured that dish with cardamom.

My favourite ice cream flavour is vanilla.
