As I’m seeking a job, I have more time to read. I typically read multiple books simultaneously. Thus, although I’m reading Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money, I’m also in the midst of Telephone Interpreting: A Comprehensive Guide to the Profession by Nataly Kelly & the classic The Interpreter’s Rx: A Training Program for Spanish/English Medical Interpreting by Holly Mikkelson.
Both of these have some vocabulary lists in them, but I’ve compiled my own vocabulary lists before & I publish some on my LinkedIn profile. I seek out definitions in Italian & Portuguese as well so there are English definitions of a total of three languages: Spanish, Italian & Portuguese.
Today’s Italian Word of the Day is “apparire”, meaning “to appear, emerge; to show off, to stand out, to make an impression”. The reflexive, “apparirsi” means, “to seem, to appear; to look (colloquialism)”. In Spanish, “aparecer”, meaning ” to appear, to materialize; to show up, to turn out” is used; with the reflexive “aparecerse” meaning “to appear”. The Portuguese translation, “aparecer” means, “to come into view” while “surgir” (an alternate translation into Portuguese) means, “to appear, to emerge”.

I feel good about how this year has gone thus far in the garden. I’ve been able to keep the thistle at bay mostly; though that’s always something to work on & watch out for. It is a very virulent & persistent weed. I picked a bunch of okra yesterday also…
