Though the noun and verb meaning may be confusing to some, just imagine the difficulty that Italians would have learning the meanings of "cook" in English
Practically every language does this to an extent
Actually, to better clarify,, "cucino" means "I cook". "Cucina" can either be the verb "she/he cooks" or the noun for "kitchen". Look at the context of the sentence to tell the difference.
I think I've heard the "cucina" also means the "cooker" - the physical appliance on which one cooks. Could anyone confirm this?
It is the conjugation of the verb cucinare(to cook) in the third person sigular, as well as the noun for both kitchen and cuisine.
"Cucina" can be either a verb: "he (she) cooks" or a noun: "kitchen," "cooking." In the above sentence, the noun is obviously meant.
Cucina is meaning he/she/it cooks, but I don't why cucina is Kitchen?
-La cucina = (the) kitchen.
-cucinare = to cook. One of the conjugation is "cucina".
I have a problem that I can't write the italian 'Is' I don't have that keypad
What keyboard are you using? On my keyboard, after I installed the Microsoft US International keyboard layout, it is the key left of the 1 that I press before pressing the e for è. On Apple and on most phones, you hold down the e and many options come up that you can choose from. http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Italian
La cucina = the kitchen. Cucina = he/she/it cooks (from the verb "cucinare").
That "apostrophe" is called a diacritical mark, AKA an accent or accent mark. The one in "è" is called "the grave" (which indicates a closed sound) while the one in "é" is called "the acute" (and indicates an open sound). It changes the sound of the letter. Just "e" means "and" and sounds like "eh" (it's a bit of a closed sound), while "è" means "he/she/it is" and sounds like the "a" in the word "anybody" or "e" in the word "tell" (it's quick and short). Then you have the "é" in words like "perché" (why, because) and it sounds like the second "e" in the word "secret".
It is confusing because it is a new word and not marked as such :/ I thought it means "cooks".
At first a thought it meant [ you are dirty] if u speak Spanish you'll know what am talking about
When would you use this?,"son/daughter let me tell you as a father/mother I need to tell you something,come with me" walks to kitchen "you see that THAT is a kitchen"
A child leaves its clothes or toys all over the kitchen and the mother remarks, "It's a kitchen, not a dumping ground! Stop it!"
