"Taglio" is 1st person singular, "taglia" is 3rd person singular: Io taglio Lui / lei / Lei taglia
It's not masculine/femine that determines it. It's conjugated according to the pronoun - this article might help:
I wouldn't say so. You certainly don't pronounce it like in, for instance, "gatto", but it's not silent either. It's hard to explain since there is no such sound in English. Put some words like "taglio" in Google Translate and listen carefully. A tip: To pronounce it, your tongue also has to touch the top of your mouth, but further to the back, without touching your teeth. Hope this helps.
yes, you have to stick your tongue to the roof of the mouth, the air goes out from the lateral parts of the mouth. The lips are not so opened (they're like doing the "e" but the inside is completely different). Some example can be found here (go to 6:40) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHEYrEr1lsQ
The IPA symbol for this sound is "ʎ." It's similar to the "li" in the English "million."
Well, when it's at the beginning of a word, it's pronounced "glee". (Except for the word "gli" of course.) And then there are a few words, "negligente", "anglicano", and "geroglifico" in which it is also pronounced "glee".
I hate the font Duolingo uses. I couldn't tell whether the first word was "Io" (first person subject pronoun), or "lo" (third person direct object pronoun)
Couldn't it also be I sliced the the bread? Or would that only be for a cake or a chicken or a turkey?
Isn't cutting breat some kind of heresy... I thought you were supposed to break it
