My Italian word of the day: occhio

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 ‘occhio’.

 

My dictionary gives this as:

 

occhio (sm) = eye

 

 ___________

 

Here is an example:

 

Le persone con l’occhio azzurro sono molto invidiate = People with blue eyes are much envied

The story so far

 

Original text:

 

Storia di una capinera

 

Avevo visto una povera capinera chiusa in gabbia: era timide, triste, malaticcia ci guardava con occhio

 

My translation:

 

Story of a blackcap

 

I had seen a poor blackcap locked in a cage: it was timid, sad, sickly it watched us with eye (this will become clearer as we translate the following words).
