LatinEdit

Etymology 1Edit

Borrowed with an unspelled /h/ from Punic *ḥawe (live!, 2sg. imp.), cognate to Hebrew חוה(Eve), and as avō from Punic *ḥawū (2pl. imp.), from Semitic root ḥ-w-y (live). The form might have been contaminated by Etymology 2, especially as the latter one's long vowel also ended up short via iambic shortening; this would explain the reluctance to spell the aspirate, as well as its interpretation as a verb form. Attested since Plautus.

Alternative formsEdit

PronunciationEdit

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈha.u̯e/, [ˈhäu̯ɛ]
  • (Literary affectation) (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈa.u̯eː/, [ˈäu̯eː]
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈa.ve/, [ˈɑːvɛ]
  • Note: around the 1st c. CE, the current pronunciation remained the etymological IPA(key): /ha.vĕ/, with the long-vowel unaspirated form possible as a literary affectation, or as a poetic license.[1]

InterjectionEdit

avē̆

  1. hail, hello, greetings! (a formal expression of greeting)
    Avē̆ atque valē!
    Hail and farewell! (esp. before a long departure and as a last good-bye to the dead).
    Avē̆ imperātor, moritūrī tē salūtant!
    Hail, commander, the ones going to their deaths salute you!
    Synonym: (h)avētō
Usage notesEdit
  • Outside of grammarians, the plural (h)avēte is attested only once in Apuleius, who is known for affecting archaisms. This suggests that this greeting didn't usually inflect for number, reflecting its originally being an interjection and not a verbal form; nevertheless, it was eventually widely interpreted as the latter.
  • The other verbal forms cited by grammarians are the future imperative avētō , ille (greetings to you, him) etc., and the infinitive in the circumlocution avēre volō (after the same use with valēre and the very rare salvēre).

Usage notesEdit
  • The feminine noun ave is like other feminine nouns starting with a stressed a sound in that it takes the definite article el (normally reserved for masculine nouns) in the singular when there is no intervening adjective:
el ave
  • However, if an adjective, even one that begins with a stressed a sound such as alta or ancha, intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
