EtymologyEdit

Equivalent to an adverbial derivation from *eregō, presumably ex- +‎ regō, with sense similar to cognate pergō (I proceed), from Proto-Indo-European *h₃reǵ- (to straighten; right). See also ergā. Compare with the adverbial use of "ē regiōne" ("directly, against"), with the same elements.
