What is "ciabatta, ciabatte"?
‘Ciabatte’ *(f) means ‘slippers’ in Italian (and if you look at the image, they look a little like slippers). It is also the name given to a small, white loaf of bread. The singular is ‘ciabatta’, and the plural is ‘ciabatte’. English speakers tend to add in and extra syllable, and say ‘tchee/ah/baht/tah’ which is incorrect. Listen to the audio, and hover over the colored letters to read the explanations. See also ‘pane‘, which is Italian for ‘bread’.
