Language Tip of the Week - Diretto and diritto

Tue, 11/30/2010 - 12:49

Here are two words which sometimes cause confusion:

Diretto means “direct” and a treno diretto is a through train. A volo diretto is a direct flight.

Diritto means a right in law.

But, confusingly, if someone is giving you directions to go straight on, they will tell you to go
sempre diritto or sempre dritto!
