Latin edit

Etymology edit

For cubī with iambic shortening, from Proto-Italic *kʷuðei or *kʷuβei, from Proto-Indo-European *kʷudʰei or *kʷobʰí (when compared with Hittite ku-wa-pi), from pronominal root *kʷu- + *-dʰi (locative suffix). Compare Ancient Greek πόθι (póthi). See also the same meanings in quō.

The unexpected loss of c may be explained as a metanalysis of the negative nēcubi, where the c was interpreted as being from nec (truly here the negation was just the ). This is also clear in the compound alicubi and sī-cubi. Contamination with ibi (there) is also possible.

Pronunciation edit

Adverb edit

ubi or ubī (not comparable)

  1. (interrogative) where? in what place?, in which place?
    Ubi?
    Where?
    Ubi patera nunc est? — In cistulā.
    Where is the bowl now? — In the small chest.
    Ubi inveniam Pamphilium? Ubi quaeram?
    Where can I find Pamphilus? Where should I look?
    Ubi sum?
    Where am I?
    Nesciō ubi sim.
    I don't know where I am.
    Īcare, ubi es?
    Icarus, where are you?
  2. (relative) where or in a place where
    Ubi tyrannus est, ibi plane est nulla res publica.
    Where there is a tyrant, there is clearly no republic.
    • 29 BCE – 19 BCE, Virgil, Aeneid 1.99-101:
      “[...] saevus ubi Aeacidae tēlō iacet Hector, ubi ingēns
      Sarpēdōn, ubi tot Simois correpta sub undīs
      scūta virum galeāsque et fortia corpora volvit!”
      “[Troy…], where fierce Hector lies, [pierced] by the spear of Achilles, where huge Sarpedon [perished], [and] where the [River] Simois has seized and rolled beneath its waves so many shields, helmets and bodies of brave men!”
      (The repetition of “ubi” exemplifies anaphora. “Aeacidae” is a patronymic: Achilles was the grandson “of Aeacus.” Read virorum for virum, a syncopated genitive plural. See also: Simois or Simoeis; Sarpedon.)
  3. (relative) when
    Ubi carceri appropinquavit, portam apertam vidit. (Cambridge Latin course 3)

Usage notes edit

"in what country" or "where in the world":

Ubi terrarum esses, ne suspicabar quidem!
