    Hello, how do you say "water" in Bergamasque, the variant of Lombard language?
    And how is it pronounced?

    Water?
    They say ègua /'εgwa/

    Look here (the last bit).

    The Wikipedia page for water in the Bergamasque dialect calls it eigua, maybe this is just an orthographical difference, which isn't surprising considering the status of the dialect.
    A quick check says this is in the ortograféa ünificada

    http://lmo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aqua (click on the tab saying Bergamasch)I hope that helps!
