ghiotto

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the adjective ghiotto, which means greedy. When used to describe some information, it can mean juicy. With the verb essere, it can mean to be fond of something, as in our example below:

Mio figlio da piccolo era ghiotto di caramelle. Dovevo nasconderle affinché lui non le mangiasse.

When my son was little, he was fond of sweets. I used to hide them so that he wouldn’t eat them.
