I've been a loyal reader and collector of this amazing italian magazine for several decades... today, excatly 51 years ago, was issued in the newstands the # 1.
I still remember, in late sixties, when I went to my local newspapers kiosk and asked with a pretty good, Oxford-ish pronunciation: "Morning madam, do you have the January issue of Linus (I said Lainas, of course)".
After asking to me a couple of timeS "what" I was looking for, she finally got it and corrected me: "You silly boy, Linus (she pronounced L.i.n.u.s.) you'd better ask for LInus... no! LInus will arrive tomorrow or after-tomorrow".
I thanked her and for some weeks I felt guilty and shy enough to pronounce English words as they were written, to my teacher great concern... 'til I told her about the above mishappen;-)))
After laughing and laughing, I felt sooooo much better when I was confirmed that "Lainas" was pretty correct-)
... and Wutki and OdB's reviews...
Happy birthday, "Lainas"!
