Only country I could find was, Czechia (for countries where English isnt an official language aswell), most countries dont have anything remotely similar to zipper or zip.

portuguese has ziper, slovak has zips and that is it. All the other languages have completely different words.

Edit: ow wait laos and georgia say zipper aswell

Zapata is not interchangeable with zapato. If you have heard the word zapata before, it was as a last name or a typo

I never heard the word “zest” used that way. To me the word zest was just a synonym for enthusiasm.

Ok, so I know a new word, but it’s weird that I could get zither and Zeno easily but didn’t know what zest meant.
