chinese new year, anyone?
How is it possible to distinguish between "rossa" and "rosa" just by the audio?
Double s as in rossa sounds like the s in "mouse". Single s as in rosa sounds like the z in "lazy" (or the s in "rose" which is one translation for "rosa").
Thanks, and there you have a minimal pair...
Are you sure about this? Is this applicable to everything?
Sounds like a howler.
I think Italian Duo has a favorite color.
Busta is envelope, ok, simple. It also means bag. What kind of bag is busta and what kind of bag is borsa?
"shopping bag" is sometimes referred as "busta", mainly by old people, but it's not standard Italian. A "busta" is an envelope and that's all.
Is "st" in "busta", "risposta", etc, pronounced just as plain "s" or do I have hearing problems?
Could be the Italian bot's pronunciation.
What...? "Nella". Wondered what 'nilla' was. Pronunciation again... phah!
It is St. Valentine's
