la razza

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun la razza, which means stingray.

Pay attention to the pronunciation! While la razza can also mean race, the pronunciation of the two words are different: la ratza when it means race, la radza when it means stingray.

State attenti quando andate al mare! I bagnini ci hanno avvisato che le razze amano nascondersi sotto la sabbia quando si riposano. Non mordono ma l’aculeo è velenoso. Guardate dove mettete i piedi!

Pay attention when you go to the beach! The lifreguards warned us that the stingrays love to hide under the sand when they are resting. They don’t bite, but its sting is poisonous. Watch where you step!
