I awoke with that term running through my head--
no, swirling through my head.
I drowsily pondered, "Is it a musical direction, or a law term?"
I kept running it over the tongue of my mind,
loving the feel of pronouncing it,
So I googled it.
and it means "whispered, or spoken in soft tones" and it is also a musical direction.
it is Italian for "under(soto)+ voice(voce)".
guess why this kicks ASS?
because today, my...friend...is sending me some audio files on How to Speak Italian.
and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
