I have a faible for these verb+pronoun constructions.

Do please tell about the faible!

Ergastolo has a nice ring to it, until you find out what it means :wink:

Ciao @morbrorper. A great word indeed until come dice tu…! Lol.

Would you believe, in our Italian club we have been discussing “la trippa” and how such parts have now become delicacies… “prelibatezze”, another fine word.

Two phrases this time : “La molli!” - drop it! and “zona Cesarini” - something at the last minute!

Grazie a Cloze e a Piero, Italian Club!

Sbrighiamoci!

In other languages you’d need half a sentence.

@MRgK Ah mi piace molto “Sbrighiamoci”! Today I learnt “orecchioni” - mumps!

In our Italian club we play Word Association and it is amazing the various links made. From Dormire leading on to Prigione;-)

You should join us;-)

Edit: Since advised by CivisRomanus that “gattoni” for mumps is more common. Viviamo e impariamo no?

Thank you for the invitation but it’s definitively to early for me. I am still deep down in B/C level. Give me a year … or so … :confused:

By the way, also thanks for all the helpful comments!

Ciao! @MRgK All levels are welcome, but I understand. We are lucky to have this spam-free forum so I like to make the most of it, sometimes with trivia I admit, but mainly just to stay in touch with others.

Tanti auguri…

8th maggio. My word today “Strimpellare” - to thumb (through pages) or strum (a guitar).

Una bella parola no? A dopo…
