pomme de terre, patate

Discussion in 'French-English Vocabulary / Vocabulaire Français-Anglais' started by Wang Jing, Dec 13, 2007.

  1. "pomme de terre" and "patate", are they the same thing? What's the difference between them?

    i don't know any difference between those two terms. maybe "patate" is a less formal term...

    The consensus from the French Only discussion seems to be that patate is both an informal equivalent of pomme de terre and a word often associated with sweet potatoes.
  5. Merci beaucoup.
