Scottish Gaelic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Irish ·aicci (sees), prototonic form of ad·cí, from Proto-Celtic *ad-kʷis-o-, from Proto-Indo-European *kʷei- (observe) or *kʷes-. The initial f- of the modern form comes from the misinterpretation of aic- as lenited fhaic-.

Verb[edit]

faic (past chunnaic, future chì, verbal noun faicinn, past participle faicte)
