omnis

LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-European *h₃ep-ni- (working), from the verbal root *h₃ep- (to work”, and hence “to possess). Related to ops and opus. It could also reflect the base Proto-Indo-European *h₁op- (to work, to take) (compare optō), to which de Vaan gives a slight preference for semantic reasons.
