Etymology 1Edit

From Proto-Indo-European *h₁ey-. Cognate with Ancient Greek εἶμι (eîmi, I go), Sanskrit एति (éti, goes), Hittite 𒄿𒄿𒀀𒋫𒋫 (iyatta, goes), Old Persian 𐎠𐎡𐎫𐎡𐎹 (aitiy, goes), Old Church Slavonic ити (iti).

  1. I go.

    Romans, go home!
    Romani ierunt domum.

  2. I proceed, advance.

  4. I prepare (for some action); I set about.
  5. (law) I accede, go over to the opposing opinion or other side in voting.

Usage notesEdit

The basic meaning "go" applies to any kind of animate or inanimate motion: walk, ride, sail, fly, etc.

InflectionEdit

Irregular conjugation, but similar to fourth conjugation. The third principal part is most often contracted to , but occasionally appears as īvī. Likewise, the perfect active infinitive and pluperfect subjunctive stem are most often contracted to isse, but rarely can be found in the full form iisse.
