The recipe for "Gulyas leves", i.e. the "soup of the drover," is the most popular Hungarian dish in the world that-contrary to what is commonly thought-is not a stew, but just a soup. How, then, to transcribe the word "usually" in Italian-"Gulyas goulash"-is totally wrong: as you can see in Hungarian writing in a completely different, but also wanting to bring back the Phonetics correctly the word "Gulyas" in the Italian language you should write "guiash" (where of course the sound of "sh" ending is identical to the first sound of the word "scarf"-not existing in Italian words with this ultimate sound: this seems to be the best way to solve this linguistic disadvantage).
