The Pit Post | Pronunciation

The Pit Post | Pronunciation

is everything when you are speaking a foreign language.  My sweet Italian wife, visiting the U.S., once referred to an unkind shopkeeper as a beach. Here, it’s the double consonants that are a nightmare for foreigners.  Buon anno, Happy New Year, is much nicer than Buon ano, Happy anus.  Quanti anni hai, literally How many years do you have, is often misspoken as, Quanti ani hai – How many anuses do you have, when asking one’s age. For non-natives, capello, hair, is one of the most troublesome.  First off, you cut them, not it. Li ho tagliati, I cut them, Italians say, when referring to a haircut.  There is, after all, more than one hair, capello, on your noggin.
