It's Chili or Chile. I'm not fully informed on the etymological differences, but it's basically a cross-language homonym.

They're only homonyms to English speakers. They're two different words, and pronounced differently too.

It is interesting that English uses a word for a hot pepper (chili) that sounds like a word that means "cold-like" (chilly). The difference is that we haven't made a verb meaning to heat from chili. We can chill a soup, but we don't say "chili it up" yet. Though, we all know what that would mean. I had chili ice cream once. :)

I meant a multilingual homynym in the sense that chili comes from chile which comes from spanish/latin, and chilly comes from proto-germanic "kal" meaning cold. Both of them being imports into English.

Chile doesn't have anything to do with chili, though. The word chili (chillee) is Mexican (Nauhuatl). Chile (cheelay) is a country name from a completely different language, and in none of them does it refer to a hot pepper. The confusion started because the Spaniards spelled the name for the county and the name of the pepper the same. Where you're right is that in different areas and countries the words are still spelled the same. I mean, in some places "chile" is how people spell the pepper and the nation. Originally, the Spaniards called the people fro that region the "chili" men. And, it doesn't help that the shape of the country resembles the shape of the pepper. :)

It's a homophone for many, fer sure. [Edit] But, in Chile, chili is "aji." In Brazil, it's "pimentao."

i was mistaken and wrote "chilly" when its as Steve say writen "chili" and originates from the Aztecs. anyway chilly fitted somewhat to the topic story..Before i actually though the chili peppers originated in east asia(china) since its so widely used here and china is the biggest producer, but it turn out it was the portugues who brought it to east asia......however atleast ketchup according to the wiki originated in china/east asia :)

I think 5 days without eating is one thing but 5 days without water?

Can chili sauce prevent dehydration?

How long can you go without water?

I have gone a few days without eating and can probably do 5 but I usually drink almost a gallon of water a day.

It is interesting to think about, isn't it?

What was Szu Chuan and Hunan food like before chilis came to China?

Or Italian food before tomatoes came from the new world?

And what's up with the Brazil nut? I love almost all of the major nuts but the Brazil nut? Wtf?
