Italian Apostrophe – La Prima Stella della Sera

Strano sentimento non ci molla mai,
Strange feeling never leaves us,
come il diavolo che vive dentro noi.
like the devil who’s living inside us.
Ogni ripensamento dà soltanto guai,
Every second thought brings only troubles,
ma quel dubbio c’è e non si sa perché.
but that doubt is here and we don’t know why.

Metti per caso non ci fosse più lui 
Imagine he wouldn’t stay here anymore
a cambiare un po’ la monotonia,
to slightly change the monotony,
probabilmente non sarebbe più mia
probably wouldn’t be mine anymore
questa strana follia quando ancora
this strange madness, when still
non so se ci credi o no, ma se credi…
I don’t know if you believe it or not, but if you believe…

Che sia una nuvola passeggera, fantasma della libertà,
That it’s a passing cloud, liberty’s ghost,
sensuale rito di primavera, all’orizzonte apparirà
sensual rite of spring, on the horizon, will appear
l’ultima spiaggia quasi vera e ancora in cielo
the last beach, almost true and then in the sky
brillerà la prima stella della sera,
will shine the first evening star,
d’immenso s’illuminerà la prima stella…
with immensity will light up the first star…

Strano sentimento ci costringe così a indugiare un po’,
Strange feeling forces us so to delay little,
a pensarci su, cane che morde non abbaia di più,
to think about it, a biting dog doesn’t bark more,
ma risveglia in noi la curiosità.
but arouses our curiosity.

Ed alla fine un gran tormento che, senza forze ormai,
And at last a great torment that, already weak,
perdi l’energia, un passaporto per la malinconia
you lose the power, a passport for the gloom
che ti lascia a metà sul traguardo e al via,
that leaves you half way, on the finish and at the start,
se ci credi o no, ma se credi…
if you believe it or not, but if you believe…

Che sia una nuvola passeggera, fantasma della libertà,
That it’s a passing cloud, liberty’s ghost,
straniera in terra di fantasia, solo al confine troverai
a foreigner in a fantastic land, only on the border you’ll find
l’ultima spiaggia, quasi vera e all’orizzonte
the last beach, almost true and on the horizon
apparirà la prima stella della sera
will appear the first evening star
all’infinito svanirà ogni paura e ogni frontiera.
and in the infinite space will disappear every fear and every border.

All’orizzonte apparirà l’ultima spiaggia quasi vera,
on the horizon will appear the last beach, almost true,
d’immenso s’illuminerà la prima stella della sera.
with immensity will light up the first star…

Italian Apostrophes – A Funny Song

Messaggini, whatsappini
Scritti peggio dei bambini
Le faccine, i sorrisini
Ma l’apostrofo è un miracolo se lo indovini
Tre puntini, snapchattini
Ibiza, Mykonos o Santorini
All night long, cuoricini
Ma l’apostrofo è un miracolo se lo indovini

Se sei uno di quelli che scrivono ‘qual è’
Mettendo l’apostrofo prima della e
L’ortografia corretta ristudiala perché
Grammatica drammatica

Se sei uno di quelli che scrivono ‘fra un po”
E lo scrivono ponendo l’accento sulla o
L’ortografia corretta te la rispiegherò
E tu studiala e studiala

Nell’ortografia italiana, l’ortografia italiana
L’apostrofo si usa sempre seguendo la definizione
Se c’è una situazione fra queste tre (privè)

Elisione (eh eh), troncamento (oh oh)
Elisione (eh eh), troncamento (oh oh)
Elisione (eh eh), troncamento (oh oh)
E l’aferesi, l’aferesi – There’s no tomorrow

L’elisione di una vocale
Se in una parola quando cade la finale
Davanti a una parola tale
Che non inizi per vocale
Se parliamo continuamente
Compiamo le elisioni inconsapevolmente
Ma nello scritto è differente
Le elisioni vanno espresse ma graficamente…

Con l’apostrofo in qualche caso invece no
Dalle quali non si elidono
Si troncano.
Senza l’apostrofo
Veniamo ora all’apocope
O anche troncamento
Che se quando cade un fono o una sillaba
Per esempio:

Se alla parola poco tu togli la finale
L’apostrofo va bene, l’accento invece male
L’ortografia corretta te la rispiegherò
Tu studiala e studial (Privè)

Elisione (eh eh), troncamento (oh oh)
