"She writes and I read."
Translation:Lei scrive ed io leggo.
There are a lot of different opinions regarding the use of e vs ed. Feel free to use it between vowel sounds, but usually both e and ed work. The only time you might really need ed is between two e's, because your "e" might get lost in the middle :) Try sounding out "Le cuoche e Elisa" or "mangio pesce e elefanti"...
Mukkapazza: thanks for the elucidation!! I especially like the last suggestion: I eat elephants!! Yeah!!!
But does "e" really work before "io"? I think one might have to set it off, somehow...maybe a slight break? (haha.. Like in Old Macdonald.... Ei--ei--Oh) Or is there elision like "eio"!!
By the way, you are doing all those languages simultaneously! Impressive!
