Re: Italian Language

Thanks, Matt :amuse

How about the same questions I posed for Pazuzu in the Irish thread, then?

Thank You
You're Welcome
Good Morning
Good Night

How are you?
I'm good ( or ) I'm feeling bad
I'm happy to hear that
What are you doing?
Have fun!

Re: Italian Language

Thank you = Grazie. (Pronounced grotseeay.) If you want to be more thankful, then go for grazie mille. (I'm pretty sure it's mille, but I might be wrong on that.)

You're welcome = Siete benvenuti when talking to multiple yous. (As in you guys are welcome.) In the singular, I'm fairly certain that it would be sei benvenuti. (Pronounced siehteh benvenootee and say benvenootee respectively.)

Good Morning = Buona mattina. (I'm putting hyphens between the syllables for this so the vowels don't get all squished. Boo-oh-na motteenah.)

Good Day = Buon Giorno. (Pronounced bon jorno.)

Good Evening = Buona Sera. (This one is easy to pronounce.)

Good Night = Buona Notte (Notte is pronounced notteh.)

How are you? = Come stai? Or, Come Va? in the plural. (Come is pronounced cohmay. The others are easy to stay. Ai makes the sound the letter "i" makes by it self, as opposed to "ee", which you see often in Italian.)
There are quite a few ways to reply to that. Bene = Good, while Molto bene = Very good. (Pronounced behneh.) Cosi-cosi = So-so, but I'm pretty sure the I's are accented. (Pronounced cozy-cosy, just with the stress on the last syllable since the i's are accented. I can't seem to find the cryllic characters, or whatever they're called. =/) If you are doing bad, you say Male, (Pronounced Maleh.) or molto male for very bad.

I'm happy to hear that = Sono felice di sentire quello. The sentence structure of that can be a bit confusing. In Italian, when using the verb to be, essere, you don't need to use the subject pronoun like I, You, He/She/It, We, You, They. The thing is that the subject pronoun is useful sometimes, since both Io and Loro, I and they use sono for the verb. Alot of that kind of stuff is just in the context. Anyway, you just conjugate, so that's where you get sono. (I am.) It's pronounced sono felichay (in English ch is soft as in choo-choo, while in Italian it's hard, as in chiesa (church) so that's always something to be careful of.) dee senteeray quelloh.

What are you doing? = Che cosa state facendo? As for the pronunciation, this is another good example of the ch thing I talked about above. It's pronounce kay kosa stateh fachendo.

Have fun! = Abbia divertimento! This is pronounced abbeeah deeverteementoh. I could be wrong, but the more literal translation of that might be something about being amused, since amusing = divertente. :amuse

Re: Italian Language

I'd love that. And while we're at it, I was wondering how to say 'I love you' in Italian.

Re: Italian Language

"I love you" is "ti amo", you can also say "ti voglio bene".
I am italian, but I also speak english and spanish perfectly, so if there are any questions I'll be pleased to help. :p

Re: Italian Language

Is something like a fusion of my first and last names, but really altered, so people wont figure out my name (that would be bad).
Anyway congratulations for this site, thanks to you I'm able to get my weekly dosis of naruto manga.

Re: Italian Language

yes,ti voglio bene is simply affection.ti amo is deeper
che bello un altro italiano!(wow another italian)
the most importan verbs in italian are "essere"(to be) e "avere"(to have).these are the presente indicativo(present simple)
essere
io sono I am
tu sei you are
egli/lui/ella/lei ha he/she/it is
noi siamo we are
voi siete you are
essi/loro sono they are
avere
io ho i have
tu hai you have
egli/lui/ella/lei ha he/she/it has
nio abbiamo we have
voi avete you have
essi/loro hanno they have

egli and lui are masculine,ella and lei are feminine.lui and lei are more common.there isn't neutrer.it's used lui or lei if the thing is m or f
loro is the same,it's more common

per oggi è tutto
ciao ciao

(for today is all
bye bye.
oggi=today,tutto=all)

first thing goes for about every other language i believe, second could well be true, but perhaps arab or some oriental languages are harder to learn if you grew up in europe/usa, because of the totally different style of making sentences and words...

Re: Italian Language

Yeah, italian is really hard to learn because of the verbs. :p

Comunque un saluto a Chapel e Hamsun!!!! (dove vivete?)

Just saying hello to the other italian guys in this forum.... and also to all latin americans (i also speak spanish)

1) Italian: Naruto é il miglior manga del mondo.
Spanish: Naruto es el mejor manga del mundo.
English: Naruto is the best manga in the world.
2) Perché Naruto dice sempre "dattebayo"?
¿Porque Naruto está siempre diciendo "dattebayo"?
Why is Naruto always saying "dattebayo"?

Well that's all for now :eyeroll

Re: Italian Language

Neat to have an Italian community growing here it seems ;D

Maybe one of you could translate a future Naruto chapter from English to Italian ( you don't have to do it weekly, just once in this thread or something ) here for us non-Italians to see some of the differences. Well, just a suggestion.

Glad to have you all here Chapel, Hamsun and rykarreolacr ( I think I'll just call you Rykar ;) )
