Ciao a tutti! This week’s theme is going to focus on “little words” – these are adverbs, interjections and other parts of speech that can be difficult to remember but can add richness to phrases if you can memorize them and learn to incorporate them into your speech and writing!

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the adverb sennò, which means otherwise or or else. See the adverb used below in its context:

Se domani Paolo e Rocco vanno al supermercato, prendessero due pacchi di pasta per la cena di sabato, sennò non avremo niente da cucinare.

If Paolo and Rocco go to the supermarket tomorrow, they should get two packages of pasta for Saturday’s dinner, otherwise we will have nothing to make.
