Yes, I'm aware that ceto refers to social class, I had a look in Garzantia and decided to go with something a bit different from classe, corso etc.
I'm building my vocabulary.. :wink:

Rob,

The key to this is to take the last word given change a letter or 2 to create another word. Then give the Italian meaning.

It would be a good idea to indicate that Ceto refers to social class in your Italian definition so that everyone understand where you are trying to go with it. I think that it is great that you are trying to build your vocabulary. You go Girl!
