Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb, gocciare, which means to drip. This verb is a synonym for gocciolare and is said to be less common than gocciolare, but, in the last two weeks, I have heard it used about three times around Rome. I figured it was worth sharing! See the verb used below in its context:

Il lavandino del bagno perde da due giorni: goccia sul pavimento e devo sempre pulire per terra. Domani chiamo l’idraulico

The sink in the bathroom has been leaking for two days: it is dripping on the floor, and I always have to wipe up the ground. Tomorrow I will call the plumber.
