My Italian word of the day: alba

I have set myself the challenge of translating the romanzo, ‘La forma dell’acqua‘ di Andrea Camilleri into English at the rate of a word a day.

La Parola del Giorno

La Parola del Giorno

The third word in the book is ‘alba‘. My dictionary gives this as:

alba (sostinavo feminile  = feminine noun) = dawn, sunrise, daybreak

and gives as example:

irrompere dell’alba = crack of dawn

Notes:

So far we have:

     Lume d’alba

     Dawn’s light

___

Vocabulary:

alba (sostinavo feminile  = feminine noun) = dawn, sunrise, daybreak

di , d’ (preposizione  = preposition) = of, from

lume (sostinavo maschile  = masculine noun) = light, lamp
