Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb azzannare, which means to bite.

See the verb used below:

Si trovano spesso cani randagi in giro per le città italiane. State attenti — ho letto sul giornale che azzannano le persone che gli si avvicinano troppo!

Stray dogs are often found around Italian cities. Be careful — I read in the paper that they bite people that get too close to them!

Nota Bene: Ciao a tutti! I sent out the instructions and code for downloading your free copy of the book. If you made a donation from December 1 to March 27, you should have received an email with the instructions. It would have been sent to the address you used when you made your donation through PayPal. If you did not receive the email, please contact me at The codes are good for one month only but free updates should be continuous. I have updated the file twice now, and I might update it to fix a few inconsistencies I found. Apparently, the program I used to make the files has a built-in spell checking feature that gets confused by the two languages and was making changes without me knowing it. So there might be lots of silly updates in the next few days.

As always, thank you again for your generosity and support for Parola del Giorno! 🙂
