Hello everyone.

Doing some searching on the internet, I found that the Neapolitan for see you later is ce verimm' aròppo. It's easy for me to see how ce verimmo is related to ci vedremo in Standard Italian, but I can't work out the precise meaning or derivation of aròppo. Can anyone tell me what this word means, and what would it relate to in Standard Italian?

Thank you very much.

    Hi everyone. Last night whilst almost drifting off to sleep I was pondering this word in bed, and it suddenly came to me that aròppo probably relates to Standard Italian a dopo. Problem solved :)

    Yes, of course, I was thrown off by the r, but of course verimmo is a variation of vedimmo, by way of d -> r. Thanks :)
