¿Cómo se dice "Marshmallow" en Español?
I think the name is marshmAllow
Marsh mallow (planta) = malvavisco, bismalva o hierba cañamera (Althaea officinalis)
Marshmallow (una sola palabra, comida) =malvavisco, malvavisco, masmelo, nube, esponjita...
If you look up marshmallow in our dictionary, you can find definitions and previous forum conversations about that word.
It's interesting that your original question used the spelling "marshmellow", which is phonetically how most Americans (in my experience) pronounce this word. In fact, it sometimes sounds forced or unnatural when people say marshmAllow (with a short "a" like in "hat") instead of marshmEllow.
Thank you! Yes, I spelt it wrong because that is how I say it. I guess that is why when I looked it up in the dictionary I didn't find it. But you are correct that when it is pronounce the other way it does sound forced. Interesting. Anyway, thanks for the help. Now I know! Malvavisco!!
