In German we use the word "e-mail" (or "email") to mean email, like in English. In English we obviously use "e-mail," too.
I know I've seen "e-mail" and "email" in Spanish as well, even though I don't have very good Spanish, it's just from growing up in the US that I've noticed this.
But I recently learned that in French it's "courriel."
So I went down Wikipedia's page about email and saw a lot of languages simply use the English word "email" or "e-mail."
My question is for those people who speak languages that don't use the word...what does the word mean? Does it mean "electronic mail?"
I gather that the Icelandic word is Tölvupóstur? What does that actually mean? Does it have a meaning other than email?
My Italian knowledge stops with musical terms and The Phantom of the Opera. Your help I do implore.
I'm congratulating a theatre company on an excellent show last night. I'd like a one-word ending to my praise. Can I use "Bravi!" "Bravo!" "Bravissimi" or "Bravissimo!" as a solo interjection at the end? Which would be most appropriate? I'm guessing the last two have greater emphasis than the first. Out of those pairs, is there one that is best to for a group of people?
1. bescherelles. ugh. i bought a larousse conjugation guide and it's the exact same thing. i'd like a similarly inexpensive and pocket-sized grammar guide, though... suggestions?
