EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Italic *temezi (in darkness, blindly), a fossilised locative form of Proto-Indo-European *témHos (darkness), from *temH- (dark). Cognate with Sanskrit तमस् (támas), Persian تم(tam), Latin tenebrae (darkness).

Compare this form here simply adverbial with the history of Latin present active infinitive.
