Usage notes

edit

Alō refers to the transitive act of causing someone or something to grow or develop. There was a companion lost stative to alō in Old Latin *aleō (I grow up, I develop, I mature), which remained effective in Classical Latin through its derived verb alēscō (I grow, I grow up, I increase).
