Word To Use Today: meriggiare.

In a month that has revealed to us that French speakers consider an Italian accent the most attractive in all the world (and that the English accent comes second)) what better word to use today than the Italian meriggiare?

Especially if you can do it in an English accent.

Meriggiare means to escape the midday sun by resting in the shade. It's not a bad chat-up line, either.

I won't put in a pronunciation guide, as the English accent is only going to help.

Mariggiare, mon ami?

Word To Use Today: mariggiare. This word is Italian. It comes from the Latin merīdiāre, from merīdiēs, midday.
