English term or phrase: toreador
What is the better Hebrew word for "toreador" (a corrida bullfighter)? 1. טוֹרֵיאָדוֹר or לוחם שוורים?
Nnikita
both
Explanation:
They are both correct. The difference is that
לוחם שוורים
is a Hebrew word, whereas
טוֹרֵיאָדוֹר
is a foreign word used in Hebrew. Another example of this is- מטדור

The first one generates over 1000 Google hits, the second - about 500.

You should choose according to your context.
