sei una balena. Just mastered italian.
Tu sei una balena. Now I can insult people in Italian. Oh, and, tu sei un insetto.
have you used this phrase? are you still alive after doing it?
Haha I love this
Una balena in Italian.
Una ballena in Spanish.
Uma baleia in Portuguese.
Une baleine in French.
A whale speaks unknown language!
And even in English there is type of whale called a baleen whale. ;~D
Aren't their "teeth" called baleen? They're super thick and are meant to filter krill from bigger things, or are they called something else... probably.
All latin based languages, that's why :)
It's a Romantic whale
A lot of resemblance to Latin and since English took a lot from other languages, I find Italian vocabulary less difficult than Chinese, Malay, Indinesian, and Gaeilge.
φαλενα in greek pronounced falena!
Balina in Turkish :)
O balena in Romanian :)
Kit in Serbian
And in russian, as well - kit=кит
In Slovenian too. Kit.
it's bálna in Hungarian
Well in german we have the wonderful word Wal
Velryba in Czech :D
But it make sence...
Vel(ká) = big
ryba = fish
In Polish whale is "wieloryb" and fish is "ryba" just like in Czech. However, I don't know enough Polish to say what the "wielo-" part means, but I would guess it is the same as "vel(ká) since the W is pronounced like a V. ;~D
Polish prefix "wielo-" can be translated as "many".
A big fish that eats a lot hehehe
It's the same in Romanian - balena
O balenă in romanian
Balena also means fatty ;D
Кит on Russian. So romantic...
a whale sounds like a ballerina
Maybe we will see this sentence soon:
"Una balena mangia una ballerina." ;-)
How come the double 'l' in cavallo is pronounced the same way the single l is here?
The letter 'l' only makes one sound in Italian whether it is single or double. It does not make the 'y' sound when doubled like in Spanish.
Hi under, the double "l" (LL) must be pronounced for a longer time like in English
Is it pronounced balEna or bAlena ? when i press the sound button it is pronounced in a different way than when i put the cursor over the word. Any help?
Balena has a second description "(he/she/it) flashes". In what context would that be used?
Hi Vipul, "balena" come from to the verb "balenare" 3° singular person of the indicaitve (simple) present.
how can I raise the volume? The enunciation is not clear enough for me, and the accent, to me was misplaced
It is interesting that in Hungarian whale is bálna, very similar.
I'm sure this is 'la balena' not 'una balena'.
it says "una"
I hear una balena
la balena would mean the whale. and una balena is a whale
I heard the same thing.
ballena (two L) is whale in spainish "/ 19th word and I lost :(
sounds like she's saying banana
Not a shark, not a penguin, a whale
In india we have a car model called 'baleno'. Possibly they want to imply it is Big.
