English term or phrase: Cutlery
Meaning knives, forks ... etc. I need a concise translation for this word if anyone knows it please.
Mona Helal
Arabic translation:adawaat al-maa'ida
Explanation:
al-Mawrid English-Arabic dictionary says 'sakaakeen; (esp.) sakaakeen al-maa'ida. al-Mughni al-Akbar says adwaat al-Qata'a, adwaat al-maa'ida. If it is 'silverware', it becomes Aaniyya/adawaat fiDDiyya.

I would like to COIN one word for that one word, along the 'root' (cut): QaTTa'iyya.

How's 'winter' ya Mona?

adawaat al-maa'ida is OK but I since thought of the answer if we say adawaat Tanawol At-Ta'aam would be more to the point.

ada waat alis tea'maal al mattbakhee


Explanation:
In Arabic the word cutlery is translated as:
malae'ik wa showak wa sakakeen.
ملاعق وشوك وسكاكين
this sentence means: spoons and forks and knives.
but i prefer to say:
adawaat alis tea'maal al mattbakhee.
أدوات الاستعمال المطبخي
which means kitchen tools or tools used in the kitchen.
The previous answer is fine, but it only covers everything that cuts.
I wonder what would gghoson say.
