  1. first-person singular present indicative form of habitar



habito (plural habiti)

  1. habitation



habito (plural habitos)

  1. habit (clothing)



From habeō +‎ -itō (frequentative suffix). Clifford Weber notes that the underived habeō occasionally conveyed the same sense of residing or dwelling in pre-Classical Latin where later usage normally has habitō.[1] The frequentative usually implies habit or frequent repetition, which is natural given the meaning of the word.
