Anglo-Roman, the pidgin English used by young people in the capital, is becoming increasingly well-known. Marco Naviglis recently-published book "But speak like you eat! (ma parla come magni!)" features all kinds of jokes, idioms, insults and threats which are literal translations into English of Roman slang. "Im impapering myself" ("Me sto a ncart") is one example, while the threat "Now I will inflate you" ("Mo te gonfio") is another. "But speak like you eat! (ma parla come magni!)" by Marco Navigli is published by Gremese. Navigli's web site can be found at www.turbozaura.it.
