My Italian word of the day: con

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 ‘con’.

My dictionary gives this as:

con (prep) = with


Here is an example:

lo accolse con un sorriso = she (or he) greeted him with a smile


The story so far

My translation:

Story of a blackcap
