I hate to throw cold water on your vivid imaginings, but... I thought they prefer snapping turtles
"Jaws" is translated into "Lo squalo" in italian, though the correct translation would be "Mascelle"
Lo is used for masculine nouns that start with z or s+ consonant. Like lo zucchero
(American English speaker) I think it developed this way because they believe that it flows better.
I think no because it's feminine, means "la zuppa", if it would be masculine you would be right ^^
The correct translation would be squali for plural but Gli squali is at the top of the food chain
Woah Woah Woah! Don't let a shark hear you say that or......... OOF!!!!!!!! #deathhasnowoccured
lets not talk about what its eating and instead focus on the fact that it is eating. that way i don't have to hide under a blanket.
I'm trying to figure out an English word that will help me remember the Italian word for shark... for instance..someone suggested moo for mucca=cow.any help out there, please?
The order-family-genus classification of the twenty-seven species of dogfish sharks commonly called spurdogs is:
Squaliformes Squalidae Squalus.
It was Linneaus' idea. I hope that helps.
I'm finding it impossible to remember when it's "lo , una, un , l'__" etc. Advice?
The singular definite articles:
- lo with masculine words beginning with z or s + consonant:
lo zucchero = the sugar
lo sport = the sport
- l' with masculine and feminine words beginning with a vowel:
l'ufficio turistico = the tourist office
l'acqua = the water
- Otherwise, use il and la according to gender:
il sole = the sun
il centro = the centre
la figlia = the daughter
la spiaggia = the beach
The plural definite articles:
- gli with masculine words beginning with a vowel or with z or s + consonant:
gli uffici = the offices
gli alberghi = the hotels
gli spaghetti = the spaghetti
Otherwise, use i and le according to gender:
i negozi = the shops
i vini = the wines
le vetrine = the shop windows
le aranciate = the orange drinks
neither. it is like saying MAHN-jah, with a soft j such as in the word journal
Lo squalo = one of my favourite Italian words - sounds so damn cute. Then, curiously, duck, l'anatra, sounds so harsh.
Ngl all I can think of with squalo is the happy way Yamamoto would say "Squalo!!" whenever he appeared.
