It's also a colloquialism for having a hangover ;)
In British English slang, "a monkey" is an amount of money (specifically £500).
I thought you were kidding so I checked and found another meaning: :)
avere una scimmia addosso= essere ubriaco o fatto di droga (to be drunk or on drugs)
Talk about a tranquliized monkey!
This is exactly what I wanted to know because it's the same in Czech. Thanks.
I was wondering if someone was going to mention the monkey on your back colloquialism.
Also a colloquialism for something much ruder ... Slapping comes to mind ... !!
Is this the same person who has the bear? What's he running, a zoo?
scimia sounds like chimp. so that's how i memorized it haha.
What word describes a male monkey ?
It's the same; "scimmia." The word is feminine, therefore you must use "una", but it applies to both genders. Have a nice day! :)
I don't quite understand the pronuncation of monkey, or scimmia.
I have a monkey and I'm not afraid to use it!
Huh! I WISH. XD
Anthony: I got a monkey!
I want one too!
And I'm not afraid to use it!
I wish I had a monkey.

Once again, I am having trouble pronouncing "Io ho __" - is it EE-YO OH OO-NA SCIMMMIA? Or is it EE-OH OH OO-NA SCIMMIA? Or EE-YO OHOO-NA SCIMMIA?
