EtymologyEdit

From the noun desig; cf. Latin dēsīderō, dēsīderāre (long for, desire, feel the want of, miss, regret). Possibly corresponds to a Vulgar Latin verb *dēsidiāre, itself perhaps a crossing between Latin dēsīderāre and invidiāre, from invidia. Compare Occitan and Portuguese desejar, Spanish desear.

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

desitjar (first-person singular present desitjo, past participle desitjat)
