il parente/i genitori

Today’s Parola del Giorno features the nouns il parente and i genitori, which means relative and parents, respectively. Be careful not to confuse these two words! Il parente does not mean parent.

See the nouns used below:

I miei genitori mi hanno chiesto di comprare dei bigliettini per la cerimonia di laurea, così ringraziamo tutti i parenti che assisteranno.

My parents asked me to buy some thank you cards for my graduation ceremony so I can thank all the relatives who will attend.

Ciao a tutti! Thank you for your patience during my absence. I have been relocating to Albany, New York, and I have not had a lot of free time before packing, unpacking and getting used to my new home. Our schedule should be pretty regular from here on out!
