English to Italian translations [PRO] Slang
English term or phrase:Shorthorn, Shakes
They're two nicknames the protagonist of the novel I'm translating is given. The writer is from California.
Explanation: Prova a vedere se le caratteristiche dei personaggi aiutano a collegarle a questi:
"Shorthorn" è il nome di una razza di bue dalle corna corte ("Oxford English Dictionary"), mentre "shakes" potrebbe significare "brividi" e trasponendolo a un uomo potrebbe diventare "Mr. Tremarella"
