"Un uomo mangia un'arancia e un panino."

Translation:A man eats an orange and a sandwich.

June 1, 2014



why is "e" used before un panino and not "ed"?


In modern Italian there is the tendency to use "ed" and "od" not anymore with every word beginning with a vowel but only with those that begin with the same vowel.

  • Tutti gli arredi sono moderni ed eleganti.

  • ogni anno od ogni tre anni


Anyone tell me what's wrong with "a man is eating an orange and a roll"?
