|Italian term or phrase: permesso?|
|When you go in someone else's house, what do you say? I mean, in Italian we say "Permesso?", that is, we ask permission to enter.|
|English translation:May I come in?|
Obviously, it depends on the context. Generally, if you ring a friend's doorbell, they'll let just ask you in (without you asking "permesso"). ["Won't you come in, please?" "Yes, thank you." is a sample conversation.] But if you find a door unattended, after shouting "Hello! Anybody home?" you might say "May I come in?"
