Question

How do you say "of" in Italian?

There are many different ways to say the same thing. I'm kind of at a loss for that chart, and I don't know what to input into a search to find it online. Italian knowers, please post the little chart thing.

Hi there,

I'm not sure if i understood well your question but if you mean of as in the city of lights, the Italian word would be "di".

BUT according to what it refers to, it changes. the word di agrees in gender and number with the nouns it precedes.

The country of Da vinci = il paese di Da Vinci

the city of the light => la città della luce

the city of lights => la città delle luci

the boy's bike (the bike of the boy) => la bicicletta del ragazzo

the boys bike (the bike of the boys) => la bicicletta dei ragazzi

Hope this helps

have a great Sunday

Ignore "Samantha Yates" answer. None of those translations apply to "of", some of them relate to "off".

There is no "chart" as it depends on the context. "Francois D" provided you with some valuable examples.
