An interesting comic strip
Today I noticed an update from a comic artist I follow - partly because he's becoming quite famous, and partly because we're close in age and he lives close to where I used to - ZeroCalcare, and I thought I'd share it with you because one of the first gags, just a few panels in, revolves around the polite forms "Lei" and "signore" and the effect they can have on some people :)
Beware: it's for people who have a rather advanced level of Italian, as there are some slang forms (like c'hai for "ci hai", 'sto for "questo", aspè for "aspetta" and so on), some dialectal forms (e.g. "scoattata" = an action that makes you look like a coatto, a rude person from the suburbs) and even some bad words that you should never ever repeat :P
But all in all, it's an enjoyable read, and for people of the Peter Pan generation (one of the ways Millennials have been called) it kind of hits close to home :)
I love Italian! I can't understand anything but I think it's a beautiful language, I wish I can read Machiavelli in his mother language someday . About the cartoon: Nice!
Really advanced, I doubt that a non-native speaker can fully understand it... anyway, funny to read :)
I share this feeling, don't be so rude with yourself because you're not alone haha
I don't know, I only got one or two lines clearly, but I think I got the joke. Or maybe I got the joke that us Boomers would think was hilarious.
Love this! Thank you for sharing :)
My favorite panel is the croc letting him know who he is and where the tick tock sound is coming from X'D. I can Identify a lot with him :D
I saw this earlier and loved it (though it does hit way too close to home). This is how I feel when my students (in college!) tell me that they weren't born yet in 1995...
I laughed so hard! I think it's in the Roman dialect, Tiburtina is just outside of Rome. As a native Florentine, the dialect wasn't too hard to understand, as it is similar to mine. That was too funny!
Lol, I see I have a lot of learning to do! Thank you for sharing this! I'll come back at a later date and time when I've spent more time learning.
Thanks a lot, I love comic books, though I am not advanced in Italian. :) By the way this reminds me to recommend a trully great comic Dylan Dog...it's also Italian.
