If you like Brazilian Portuguese, then you'll really like Galician. Have you ever heard it?

Of course, part of my family is Galician. Some times I go there to spend my holidays (good weather in summer, nice people, good food and beautiful landscapes). Everytime I go there I have to make less and less efforts to understand Galician.

I've been trying to read Italian a bit lately. I've never taken it, but a lot of it is readable because of Spanish. The Venetian dialect ( http://vec.wikipedia.org/ ) is easier for me to read than Standard Italian. What do you guys think? Standard Italian or Venetian is easier?

ciao a tutti!

studio italiano a scuola (da quando avevo cinque anni) e mi piace moltissimo. Ora sto facendo l'ultimo anno di scuola e il prossimo anno vorrei cominciare imparando lo spagnolo all'università.

Conosco una ragazza che sa parlare il portugese, e mi ha dato alcune canzone in portugese, ma anch'io penso che la lingua è un po' strana. Non mi piace tanto, ma le canzone sono buone.

Per quanto riguardo i dialetti italiani, non li ho sentiti tanti. Però, quando sono andata in Italia due anni fa, sono stata con una famiglia italiana e Sara, la figlia, mi ha insegnato che "bagigi" significa "peanut", ma non posso ricordare la parola corretta per "peanut"!!

According to a dictionary it's arachide.
Anyway if you have mastered Italian, Spanish may be easy for you at college next year.
Much of Italian translates directly to Spanish.

Grammar is quite different and vocabulary is full of false friends though.

Hola. Veo que mi comprension italiano está mejorando porque mi comprension de castellano está mejorando. Realmente no estudio italiano, pero era possible leer tu mensaje solamente con mi comprension de castellano y leyendo otras cosas en italiano. Por eso, por personas que conocen mucho italiano, castellano es obviamente muy fácil a leer también.

Peanut = nocciolina
Peanuts = noccioline

Bagigi = noccioline americane.
Mai sentito ne letto prima, quindi mi sono informato:
Quote:
bagigio m (pl: bagigi)
1.(sett.) seme della piante dell'arachide, detta anche spagnoletta o nocciolina americana; il nome in oggetto è stato dato alle arachidi per una loro assimilazione al Cyperus esculentus, già titolare del nome stesso.(WKZ)
La tua amica Sara deve essere settentrionale, ci puoi dire di dove?

L'etimologia appare interessante:
Quote:
Interessante l’origine storica. In Manlio Cortellazzo e Carla Marcato, I dialetti italiani. Dizionario etimologico, Utet,
Torino, 1998, tomo I, pag. 59, viene infatti affermato: «bagìgi, sm. plur. (veneto, anche barbagigi). ‘Arachidi, noccioline
americane’. La voce è passata anche all’italiano babbagigi e deriva dall’arabo ḥabb ‘bacca, coccola’ e azïz ‘rinomato, pregevole’.
Stessa origine ha il siciliano cabbasisi plur. ‘babbagigi’ (e cabbasisa la pianta) che mantiene inalterata la sillaba iniziale;
la parola ha anche il significato figurato di ‘testicoli’».
A proposito di babbagigi, si veda quanto riportato sul sito www.treccani.it, al link vocabolario: «babbagigi s. m. [dall’arabo
habb῾azīz «mandorla buona»]. – Pianta ciperacea (Cyperus esculentus), talora coltivata per i suoi tuberi dolci e mangerecci».(WKD)
