EtymologyEdit

Semi-learned modification (based on the original Latin etymology) and conjugation change of Old Spanish llañer[1] (compare also Old Portuguese changer and modern planger), itself inherited from Latin plangere, present active infinitive of plangō (compare Italian piangere, French plaindre, Romanian plânge), and ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *pleh₂k-.

VerbEdit

plañir (first-person singular present plaño, first-person singular preterite plañí, past participle plañido)

  1. to cry and groan

ConjugationEdit

  • Rule: Any unstressed i immediately after a root ending in ll, ñ or i is always absorbed.
