[Italian : Italian dialectal (Rome) brusco, charred, toasted (from bruscare, to char, roast over coals, from Vulgar Latin *brūsicāre; akin to Italian bruciare, to burn, from Vulgar Latin *brūsāre, brūsiāre, of unknown origin) + Italian -etta, feminine of -etto, diminutive suffix.]
Usage Note: The sch cluster in bruschetta can be pronounced as it is in Italian as (k) or in an Anglicized fashion as (sh). Both forms are acceptable to a large majority of the Usage Panel, and when asked to pick a preferred form, the Panel showed an almost even split.
