Um...yes, I must admit, the same translation entered my head. Or perhaps he "comes from the zoo" just like the proverbial "SHE" "comes from Alabama"...?
"The Creature from the Black Lagoon"....how does one say "Aaagghh!" in Italian?
Brings a whole new meaning to "you look like a monkey, and you smell like one too..."
Not at all. My husband was born in Italy and I have been in europe around his extended family, that is definitely a Spanish dialect thing, not an Italian accent thing.
No, it's not the same. There is no 'just' in the original sentence and 'vengo' is present not perfect. I think your rendition would read 'Sono appena tornato dallo zoo.'
To say "I am coming from the zoo" is better than "I come from the zoo" which can mean I originate from the zoo - so NOT flattering.
I like this new audio guy. He's easier to understand. However, he pronounces "zoo" as "doo". I've noticed it a few times. Is this a fluke, or something I need to pay attention to?
You're right. But then it's probably just an idiosyncrasy of the Italian tongue. This sort of thing happens in various languages. Yes, we'll have to pay attention to it.
il ragazzo va dalla ragazza the boy GOES TO the girl vengo dallo zoo i COME FROM zoo I have absolutely no idea what is going on here. The verb is the same, the preposition is the same, the meaning is completely different.
There is definitely something wrong with the new male voice's speech synthesis for words starting with the 'z' sound. (It's not just a matter of pronouncing it as 'dz'; the hiss is currently completely absent.) Keep reporting it until they fix it.
I hear that too, or rather z being pronounced as "dz". And I've heard real life Italians pronounce words starting in z like that also. I think it's just a common pronunciation of the letter when it is in the beginning of a word.
Yeah, actaually..... My whole family jokes about me being a monkey from the zoo but......... Whatever
If you hover over vent it shows either come or arrive as being correct however I got marked wrong for using arrive
I dont know wether i should take this as in insult or just forget about it XD
