1 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-1 Punto di partenza The verbs dire (to say; to tell), uscire (to go out; to leave), and venire (to come) are irregular.

We say Ciao to the professor every morning. Linsegnante dice che devo stampare i compiti. The teacher says I have to print out the homework.

3 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-3 Dire expresses to say or to tell. Do not confuse it with parlare (to speak), which you learned in Lezione 2A. Cosa dici a Stefania? What are you telling Stefania? Parli a Stefania? Are you speaking to Stefania?

4 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-4 Uscire is irregular in all but the noi and voi forms. Usciamo sempre con le amiche. We always go out with our girlfriends. Da quanto tempo esce con Davide? How long has she been going out with Davide?

5 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-5 Use uscire for the English to leave only in the sense of to go out of. To express to depart, use partire, which you learned in Lezione 3A. Stasera mio fratello non esce di casa. My brother is not leaving the house tonight. Le mie sorelle partono per lItalia domani. My sisters are leaving for Italy tomorrow.

6 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-6 The verb riuscire (to succeed; to manage) follows the same pattern of conjugation as uscire. Use riuscire a + [infinitive] in two-verb constructions. Non riesco a caricare la foto. I cant manage to upload the photo. Riuscite a mandare l ? Are you succeeding in sending the ?

8 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-8 Disjunctive pronouns Disjunctive pronouns (Pronomi tonici) are the pronoun forms used after prepositions (see Lezione 3A). Note that the third person forms use different words to refer to one and oneself. Davide esce con lei. Davide is going out with her. Diciamo «Arrivederci» a Lei? Do we say Arrivederci to you?

9 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-9 Some prepositions add di before a disjunctive pronoun, including dopo (after), prima (before), senza (without), su (on), and sotto (under). Secondo (According to) is used alone. Uscite senza di noi? Are you going out without us? Secondo voi, è facile la classe? According to you, is the class easy?

10 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.4A.2-10 Da is often used before a disjunctive pronoun to mean by oneself. In this case, use sé for the third-person forms. Remember, da can also indicate at a persons home or workplace. Installa il programma da sé. It installs the program by itself. Faccio il sito da me. Im making the Web site by myself. Vieni da me alle otto. You are coming to my place at 8:00. Vai da loro oggi? Are you going to their place today?
