Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun, l’aggeggio, which means gadget or contraption. See the noun used below in its context:

Ogni volta che uso il cellulare davanti a mia nonna, lei mi rimprovera dicendo: “Ma la smetti di usare in continuazione quell’aggeggio? Cosa ci trovi di bello!”

Every time I use my mobile in front of my grandmother, she yells at me saying: “But do you ever stop continually using that contraption ? What do you find so interesting on there!”
