magari

La parola del giorno di oggi | Today's Word of the Day

The word magàri in Italian has many roles in Italian! My favorite is the use of the word magari as an interjection (un’interiezione).

As an interjection, magari means I wish or If only.

Amo la nuova macchina che hai appena acquistato! Hai vinto la lotteria?

I love the new car you just bought! Did you win the lottery?

Magari!

I wish!
