Could this also be translated as "he sounds strong" ?
As in you speak to some guy on the phone and he sounds touch macho confident etc?
It seems that the masculine singular form does play the role of adverb quite often.
Is this referring to "he makes a lot of noise as he rambunctiously plays" or "He plays the piano loudly"? Which type of play is which?
"suonare" is to do with sound and means "to play" an instrument (it also means to sound something or to ring something); giocare is to do with games and means "to play" a game/for diversion. So in this case, the most natural translation would be "he plays loudly", i.e. he plays an instrument loudly.
What!? "He is playing loudly" is not accepted, only the Present Simple Tense! I've reported!
My dictionary references suonare to look at sonare. But which word is used in reality?
If we are talking about sports, can you translate it as "he plays hard"?
the dictionary says "suonare" also means "to beat". So "Lui suona forte" can also mean "He beats strong" ?
