The singular of chuvmey is indeed chuv.


n. leftover

This can be used for leftover food. However, the core of an apple, which
isn't eaten, is SuqSIv (n).

See also: chuv (v)

On an even more off-topic note, my oldest brother ate a lot of apple cores
when he was little. He'd have them gobbled down before anyone could stop
him... somehow he survived...

really have anything to add to the discussion :-P)
