Etymology 1Edit

Either from Vulgar Latin *adiectāre, or *aiectāre, from Latin ēiectāre, present active infinitive of ēiectō, all ultimately from iactus. Normally the i would shift to a j in Romanian, but it may have originally disappeared due to preceding the e, as in quiētus > (în)cet, and came back in speech over time due to a lack of consonants between the two [1]. Doublet of ejecta, a borrowing.
