depreciation endings?

edited October 2016 in Italian

I was looking at the Grammar Summary, and found the following, which intrigued me.

"The endings -accio, -accia, -astro, -astra, -azzo, -azza indicate depreciation."

Could you give me examples of words with these endings? Grazie!


  • Sure!!!!

    Bad guy = ragaZZACCIO
    low quality wood = legnACCIO

    not talented poet = poetastro
    ugly feet= piedAZZI

  • Molto interessanti! Grazie!
