Animale is an Italian eqiuvalent of the English word "animal".
Specifically, the word is a masculine noun in its singular form. It may be preceded by the masculine singular definite article l'* ("the") or the masculine singular indefinite article un, uno ("a, one"). The pronunciation will be "AH-nee-MAH-ley" in Italian.
*The article actually is il. But the vowel drops and an apostrophe is appended before a noun which begins with a vowel.
