I ran across a guy recently who was from Tuscany, and I ran a few words at him to learn the proper way to pronounce them. The most interesting one that I asked was for that of my Paso. He said that most of Italy would pronounce it as "Pah-so", but he said that in Tuscany, he'd pronounce it as "Pah-zo". He said that Italy is very much like the USA with its different dialects.
Yes many dialects, but a true Italian can tell when proper Italian is spoken. I have a habit of speaking Calabrese with my daughter, wife and so on. Only to have my wife correct me almost on a daily basis. She is from the North and speaks more proper than me from the South.
For the record I was born way up North in Milan but speak Calabrese since my parents where from Calabria. :think:
and while on the sobject, can anybody explain why every american, can not say the word Desmose'dici but they all say Desmosedi'ci?
My dealer, is in Italy 3 times x month at Ducati factory can't say it the way is meant to be. It drives me nuts!
E che cazzo!

Chassis OK, Suspension...
Hi guys! I've been an expat in the Netherlands for a while now and still don't know many Ducatisti here. It's a bit weird for me cos in the other 4 countries I've lived in I found the crowd upon arrival basically. I know you guys are out there somewhere! :D
