È un lama?

“Is that a llama?”I was surprised to run into such an unusual word so early in the FFT, but it turns out that “lama”, feminine, means “blade” (of a knife).

È questa la tua lama, no no no, è il mio lama!
Another surprise, the llama is masculine! Now we know our blades from our llamas;-)

Genders get me every time, I’m sure I’ll be asking if someone’s llama has been sharpened at some point in the future…

@sindaco Ahia! Ora we have to watch out not only for Tom but for a sharpened llama! La vita è pericolosa no?

I’m so glad to see you still visit our Italian forum - all Cloze studenti are welcome. The Ginzburg book is a joy!
