My Italian word of the day: timida

La Parola del Giorno

La Parola del Giorno

I have set myself the challenge of translating ‘Storia di una Capinera’ by Giovanni Verga into English at the rate of a word a day.

___

The next new word in the text is ‘timida’.

My dictionary gives this as:

timida (agg) = timid, demure, bashful, fake, weak, hesitant

timida is the feminine form of the adjective timido

___

Here is an example:

una persona timida evita il contatto oculare con l’interlocutore = a timid person avoids eye contact with the speaker

The story so far

Original Text:

Storia di una  capinera

Avevo visto una povera capinera chiusa in gabbia: era timide

My translation:

Story of a blackcap

I had seen a poor blackcap locked in a cage: it was timid
