Irish[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) (compare Sanskrit चायति (cāyati, perceives)) or Proto-Indo-European *kʷes- (compare Sanskrit चक्षति (cakṣati, sees)). The initial f- of the Modern Irish form comes from the misinterpretation of aic- as lenited fhaic- (later modified to fheic). Compare Scottish Gaelic faic. See chonaic for the etymology of the independent past indicative forms.
