EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Italic *apō, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ep- (to get, grab). Cognate with apex, Hittite 𒄩𒀊 (ḫapp-, to join, attach), Ancient Greek ἅπτω (háptō, I fasten).

The term is only attested in another form than the participle in the work of the grammarian Sextus Pompeius Festus and in the Etymologiae of Saint Isidore of Seville.

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

apō (present infinitive apere, perfect active apī, supine aptum); third conjugation

  1. I fasten; attach, connect; join, bind
    • c. 177 CE, Aulus Gellius, Noctes Atticae 1.15.1:
      [] linguam autem dēbēre aiunt non esse līberam nec vagam, sed vinclīs de pectore īmō ac dē corde aptīs movērī et quasi gubernārī.
      They say that the tongue should not be free and wandering, but that it should be moved and, so to say, steered by cords attached to the deep chest and heart.
    • 8th C. C.E., Paulus Diaconus (author), Karl Otfried Müller (editor), Excerpta ex libris Pompeii Festi De significatione verborum (1839), page 17, line 9:
      Apex, quod est sacerdotum īnsigne, dictus est ab eō, quod comprehendere antīquī vinculō apere dīcēbant. Unde aptus est, quī conventienter alicui iūnctus est.
      The apex, which is the ensign of the Flamen, is called so because of the fact that in, the old language, tying with a rope was called apere. Whence aptus is something which is conventiently joined to something.
