ashteptu

AromanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Latin root *astectō < adspectō < aspectō. Compare Daco-Romanian aștepta, aștept. The second sense of receiving guests may indicate the influence of expectō, or it may be the natural evolution of the word, as in expecting or waiting for guests.

VerbEdit

ashteptu (past participle ashtiptatã)

  1. I wait.
  2. I receive or have guests.
