In modern Italian there is the tendency to use "ed", "ad" and "od" only if the following word begins with the same vowel.
I'm still confused because I've seen "ed io" as a correct construction here before.
You're right, that women Sandrabuck is so wrong, i have been living in Italy and i have read italian books, newspaper, etc and the correct form it is: ED IO
thank you so much for making that clear. It would have taken forever to figure it out.
Sorry but in this case, it must be added the letter d, my italian professor taught me that.
Really, stop!!! you're misinforming people, seriously stop. Even in Living Language know it better: http://www.livinglanguage.com/community/discussion/146/ed/p1
yes, you are right.
The preposition "a" in front of a word beginning with the vowel "a" becomes "ad" (= at,to...)
the conjunction "o" in front of words beginning with "o" becomes "od" (= or)
i suggest you study more italian young lady, you're WRONG.
Because, is well known that is more common to add the d after the letters a, i, etc., is not wrong to do the same with e.

A forum, they are discussing about something else, but watch how all the italians are writing "tu ed io":http://forum.wordreference.com/threads/io-e-te-vs-tu-ed-io.1074324/
"ed io" is the correct way, there's even another question here where you will be told so #confusing
Sono is used in two situations. It can be used to say am after io or to say are after loro.
Thanks, great explanation. I wish Duo would provide even rudimentary grammar lessons, and/or explanations like these.
Why is "ed io" wrong? There seems to be some disagreement among contributors to this discussion. What's the rule, anyone?
From this discussion I cannot determine whether it is correct to say “ed io” or “e io” or whether it’s optional. Perhaps a native speaker can clue us in on this matter. Help!
