qualunque

English translation of qualunque

whatever

The Italian word 'qualunque' is used to express a general indifference or lack of concern towards a particular choice or decision. It can be used in the same way as the English word 'whatever', often in response to a question or statement where the speaker does not have a strong preference or opinion. For example, when asked 'What do you want to eat?', one might respond 'Qualunque' to indicate that they are open to any option.
