"Il panino è lungo."

Translation:The sandwich is long.

Does this sentence belong here, to the prepositions lesson? Isn't "lungo" an adjective?

November 8, 2014


I think it is designed to let us know lungo can be an adjective or a preposition depending on the context.

February 20, 2015


I think of most of the word like they would sound in spanish. In this case, it is used like the word "largo". So you could say " a lo largo de" to point something to be "along of" or just "largo" as "long".

these sentences aren't picked by humans. they are drawn from a library by an app. lungo is an adverb as well as an adjective and a noun. "along", "alongside", "over", "during', "by the side of", and more. as a noun it means "length" it almost makes sense as "the sandwich is alongside of..." it's just missing the indirect object

sounds like lungo is being pronounced as lungh. Is the o on the end silent?

January 13, 2015


The o is quiet but not silent. I heard it. Whenever the audio sounds funny I raise the volume and that helps a lot. General Pronunciation Rule in Italian: Vowel in the middle of the word (u in lungo) is much louder than vowel at the end of the word (o in lungo). This is why she says RaGAZZa! that specific way. It's less obvious with the verbs but you may be able to hear that she does this for every word.

I agree, it is very quiet in the normal-speed reading. In the slow reading, it is more distinct.

Why is the translation for panino - roll and bread is not accepted?

January 19, 2015


Pane is bread, panino is roll/sandwich.

September 11, 2015


In my version of English a panino is a bread roll- this should be accepted. There are other versions of the roll-sausage roll, sponge roll etc.

How do you type "is" in Italian with an english keyboard? My answer is deemed incorrect when I enter an e, 'e, or e'.

In the browser version of duolingo, buttons for letters with accents are provided under the text boxes. In the app version, you should be able to hold down the letter on a touchscreen keyboard for a couple of seconds, and options for different accents will appear. Otherwise, on a keyboard you can use keyboard codes for accents. On windows computers, è is ALT +0232 (googling it can provide you with other windows accent codes). On a mac, hold option while pressing the ` key and then type the letter you want under the accent.

the audio sounded so weird :/

November 19, 2017


Yeah, the Italian voice has a bad tendency to fade out at the end of sentences / words. Could hardly hear at full volume.

February 4, 2018


Indeed, she sais that the panino is lung without the final o. Is it a dialectisism

I absolutely despise the pronunciation of this sentence. Frederica's voice is terrible.

December 6, 2014


In this Italian course, they use the IVONA voice, Carla.

May 16, 2015


That's the new voice. When this comment was posted, the voice was different for me (while they were A/B Testing)

May 18, 2015


That's what happens when you eat at Subway, and ask for the big one.

August 25, 2016


But 'panino' is not only a sandwich, originally and basically it is a bread roll. So 'bread roll' and 'roll' should be accepted. Especially in the context '... è lungo', since it is basically the roll itself which is long, and that results in a long sandwich.

September 10, 2017


Can anyone clarify how to determine bread vs roll for panino?

May 27, 2015

  • panino = (bread) roll, bun or sandwich
  • pane = bread
August 4, 2015


I put bread roll but was marked wrong.

March 27, 2016


I think we're talking about a foot long sub here.

March 10, 2017


'lungo' as a preposition means 'across' : Andiamo al bar lungo la strada - We're going to the bar across the street, and also 'throughout' and 'alongside'

May 3, 2017


The speaker says 'loon' for 'lungo'. Anybody notice

May 13, 2019


Should be bread roll....

March 29, 2015


The sandwhich is long sir...

April 6, 2017


Really annoying. Sometimes roll is accepted for panino, sometimes sandwich and not bread roll. Why not accept all three?

July 7, 2017


sounds like the $5 footlong......

March 19, 2018


The sandwich's long. Isn't sandwich apostrophe s an appropriate contraction?

September 26, 2018


it's controversial. some accept it and others bitterly oppose it. you should probably avoid contracting subjects with verbs on this site.

September 26, 2018


No only if something belongs to the sandwich!!!

May 28, 2019


Five! FIIIIVE!! Five dollar footlong!!!! ;D

The sound with the duolingo program suddenly stopped on this section? Has anyone else had this problem and/or know how to fix it? I just completed 3 other lessons in a row and now no sound.

March 23, 2019


During this lesson the sound suddenly disappeared for this item. This happened on another lesson yesterday. Has anyone else had this problem and/or know how to fix it?

March 23, 2019


When that happens,I just click on the "cannot listen" and everything is given in print

April 30, 2019


The word "roll" was not at in any exercise, why is it showed here?

August 10, 2019


According to one of the hints, another meaning of lungo is long-standing! I do not want to eat at that cafe again

September 25, 2016
