'Criceto violentatore' is all Italian I remember.

I've just started picking up bits of Italian for fun. I think it's a beautiful language.
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Hi, how are you = Come stai (pronounced "ko-may-stigh")
<LI>Good thanks = Bene, grazie (pronounced "ben-nay, grats-'e'-'a'")
<LI>Goodnight = Buonanotte
[/list]
I'm sure any mistakes in the above will be swiftly addressed. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

There's a really fun Italian women coming to stay at our house next week so I want to pick up some more.

PS Remember to speak with Italian passion!

Lots of mistakes here!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

Let's correct them:

"Avette occhi piachevolli" €" Wrong spelling, and it means €œYou have pleasant eyes€, not €œbeautiful eyes€

Correct form: Avete dei begl€occhi €" Avete degli occhi molto belli.


Stratiatella=Vanilla with lots of little chocolate chips
It is spelled: Stracciatella


Zuppa d'Inglese=English Soup=Sherry trifle
http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif Actually, spelled this way means €œSoup made of an Englishman€!! We are not cannibals!!

It is "Zuppa Inglese"

Albibicoca=Apricot
Albicocca

******ata formaggio ladro
"******ata" just does not exist€¦ the rest means something like €œThief cheese€


Vorrei una vaffanculo con legume, per favore.
http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
Say at your own risk, it means€ I€d like to have a f u c k off with a vegetable, please€



bondiono=hello
Spell: Buongiorno

seniorita=girl
senior=boy
This is Spanish!!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif


un vetro di vino a glass of wine.

Vetro=Glass, but it stands for the material glasses and bottles are made of! The thing in which you drink is not €œvetro€, but €œbicchiere€.
"un bicchiere di vino"

buona mattina good morning
No one would say this, but rather €œBuon giorno€ = good morning


che cosa ¨ il vostro nome what is your name? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
No way!! You must say €œCome ti chiami?€, which literally means €œHow do you call yourself€ (similar in French and Spanish).


¨ ci un museo dell aeroplano qui vicino Is there an airplane museum nearby?

Wrong syntax. €œC€¨ un museo dell€aeroplano qui vicino?€


or

dove ¨ il museo del velivolo Where is the aircraft museum?

velivolo is aircraft

Better not use €œvelivolo€ in this context. Better ask for €œmuseo dell€aviazione€ or €œmuseo dell€aeronautica€ (aviazione = aviation; aeronautica = air force and aviation in general)


Io sono un diavolo e volo possere il tuo splendido corpo, ragazza.

Io sono un diavolo e voGLIO posseDEre€¦
Meaning: I am a devil and I want to have your wonderful body, girl
Mmmm, Dux, it's a hot summer, isn't it? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif


Benzina finito = out of gas

Propello stoppo = propeller has stopped
No way!! Elica bloccata/immobile

Grande catastrofo = result of above

This reminds me of General Franco's brother-in-law, Serrano Sºer. This guy was foreign affair minister during WW2, and he was very fond of III Reich and fascist Italy.

He was invited to Italy by Mussolini and his Italian couterpart, Count Ciano. While he was there he visited the tomb of the WW1 Italian 'Unknown Soldier'. In the official act he had to give a little speech, but his Italian was less than good, and instead of 'milite ignoto' he tried something like 'soldato sconosciuto', but mispronounced it and said:

'soltato escognuto'

(In Spanish it sounds very like 'soldier with no c*nt') http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
