Italian word game - Hi everybody, :)

let's try a game:
it's a word game similar to other games you can find in other discusss.
Instructions: Start with the last syllable (or the last 2 or three letters) of the previously posted word.

First word:
L'ALBERO (the tree, masculine)
The next word should start with “RO”

Please put determinative articles before nouns to indicate their gender.
[quote] Example:
la mano ( = the hand, feminine) – il nome (=the name, masculine) – il medico (= the doctor, masculine) – il codice (=the code, masculine)
[/quote]
Here are some explanations about articles:
[quote]
Remember:
Masculine determinative articles
singular: il, lo (eg. il cane – the dog, lo zucchero – the sugar)
plural: i, gli (eg.i libri – the books, gli amici – the friends)

notice that “lo” and “gli” articles have to be used only with nouns starting with:
- a vowel, in that case lo becomes l' (elision): l'amore (the love) – gli alberi (the trees)
- a “z”: lo zucchero (the sugar) - gli zii (the uncles)
- an “s” + consonant: lo scambio (the exchange) – gli stracci (the duster cloths)


Feminine determinative articles
singular: la (la casa – the house)
plural: le (le sedie – the chairs)

notice that la becomes l' before nouns starting with a vowel:
eg. l'anatra (the duck) – l'amica (female friend)

the word "traduttore" is not right.
Please read again the instructions:
