Usage notes

Since devices for heating rooms, houses etc. have technically been separated from cooking devices (soùx. ‘kitchen stove’) and water boilers, the meaning of this word has been restricted to the former.

When using this word, don’t forget that the inner factive already means ‘warm up a house or room’, so the tool noun is often dispensable: ‘to turn up the heating in the kitchen’ is best translated as fràc soòrxi. stove-fact1 cook-sce-dat2., ‘to turn up the central heating’ as friclàj..
