Word(s) of the Day: Genitori vs Genitali

by Luke Archer

I was wising up on my falso amici [fake friends], when I discovered this confusing state of affairs:

Genitori means parents. Genitali  means genitals.

As there’s not much chance of having one without the other, I suppose the similarity does make sense…

Maybe I am getting ahead myself, with my inability to even form simple sentences yet, but what if I accidentally ask someone how their genitali are doing?

An imminent self-fulfilling prophecy, I fear.
