LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

For cubī with iambic shortening, from Proto-Indo-European *kʷudʰei or *kʷobʰí (when compared with Hittite ku-wa-pi), from pronominal root *kʷos, *kʷis. Confer Ancient Greek πόθι (póthi). See also the same meanings in quō.

The 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. Contamination with ibi (there) is also possible.

PronunciationEdit

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈu.bi/, [ˈʊbɪ]
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈu.bi/, [ˈuːbi]
  • (Archaic, Poetic) IPA(key): /ˈu.biː/, [ˈʊbiː]
  • (Archaic, Poetic) IPA(key): /ˈu.bi/, [ˈuːbi]
  • (file)
