Reconstruction:Latin/bene venutus

This Latin entry contains reconstructed words and roots. As such, the term(s) in this entry are not directly attested, but are hypothesized to have existed based on comparative evidence.


Alternative formsEdit


bene (well) + *venūtus, innovative past participle of veniō (to come). The past participle ending *-ūtus comes from supine forms of third conjugation verbs with stems ending in -u (i.e. cōnsuō, perfect cōnsuī, supine cōnsūtus), the perfect ending -uī might seems like an ending of an -ēre verb since veniō and teneō are sometimes came into pairs (as in French venir : tenir).

Calque of Frankish *willikumō (with the first element wrongly identified as *wela (well) rather than *willjō (will, desire)), from Proto-Germanic *wiljakumô.
