Pronounced: i-o (Dizionario Italiano Garzanti). Ee-oh (Roberto's Americanized version of the word).
Meaning: I Io? Sono Roberto (I? I am Roberto). Io is the response you will often receive when you ask Italians to tell you their names. It's also used when one in unsure whether or not a person is speaking to you. When that happens, reply Io? Note: I show the pronunciation of each Word of the Day as found in Dizionario Italiano Garzanti, followed by Roberto's (Americanized) pronunciation of each daily word.
