Thread Name: Word meanings in Banks Of Sicily
Subject: RE: Word meanings in Banks Of Sicily
Oh FWIW, I've strongly on the don't anglicise side in that part of the debate.
The song is beautiful in its original form. The reason (to me at least) for translating is to learn to understand it better and to better interpret other songs in the same dialect.

I'd love it if someone put it down in original form with the translation along-side for reference though.
