Alternative formsEdit


From dis- +‎ iaciō (throw, hurl).



disiciō (present infinitive disicere, perfect active disiēcī, supine disiectum); third conjugation iō-variant

  1. I throw or drive asunder; scatter, disperse, break up, divide; dishevel
  2. (military) I disperse, scatter or rout the enemy
  3. I destroy, bring to naught; thwart, overthrow, frustrate

Usage notesEdit

In prosody, the first syllable is always long by position due to the unwritten /j/, thus disiciō can be found written as dīsiciō in some editions or manuals, which however doesn't signify the length of the vowel itself.
