“Basanacol..!” Italian Slang Word of the Day with Stevie B.


Italian Slang Word of the Day

with Stevie B.


Growin’ up I heard this over and over again. Mom would say Frankie… don’t forget the Basanacol’ – Basilico in grammatica Italiano.


If you grew up in an Italian American or for that matter any Italian / English speaking Immigrant family…. didn’t matter if you were first, second or third generation you heard these what we are going to refer to as slang words. 

Actually many of them were simply words that had been bastardized in the transition from Italian or from a particular Italian dialect into English.

Anyway you will see what I mean. We applaud Stevie for putting these together. Really cracks me up and… Not only does he say and describe the Italian or Dialect version of the word he also expresses the same thing in “Proper English”. Just Too Funny. So take a moment and let Stevie entertain you with the Italian Slang word of the Day. We can all use a good laugh.

Yo.. Don’t forget the !!!

!… Basanacol’…!
