Pronounced: Pràn-zo (Dizionario Italiano Garzanti). Pran-zo (Roberto's Americanized version).
Meaning: Lunch Vorrei una prenotazione per il pranzo (I would like a reservation for lunch). One way to learn Italian is to ask for menus in Italiano. Vorrei la lista per favore or vorrei il menu per favore. As you will see in an upcoming blogs, food plays an important part in learning the language and menus provide you with the opportunity to vastly expand your vocabulary. So, use lunch, il pranzo as an opportunity to do just that. 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. To listen to a native Italian speaker say the Word of the Day click here, http://www.vocabolaudio.com/it/pranzo, then click the audio symbol next to the word.
