aller

  1. of all; genitive form of al

FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

Syncretic verb; from Old French aler, alier, along with subjunctive aill- and other forms with all-, from Vulgar Latin alare (7th cent., Reichnau Glosses), from Gaulish *aliu (compare Welsh elen ‘I was going’, Cornish ellev ‘I may go’); also Franco-Provençal alâ, allar and Friulan ‘to go’ (compare lin ‘we go’, lât ‘gone’). Often misattributed to Latin ambulare, but that is phonetically impossible, compare: Old Provençal amblar, Italian ambiare, Romanian umbla.
Latin vādō ‘to go’ supplies the present tense forms and īre (present active infinitive of ) supplies the future and conditional.
