Etymology[edit]

From the earlier *paketa; see pako 'fleeing (n.)' and -ta, which forms verbs from nouns.

Verb[edit]

paeta

  1. (transitive + partitive) To flee from, run away from.
    He pakenivat sotaa Ruotsiin.
    They escaped from the war to Sweden.
  2. (transitive + partitive, or intransitive + elative or ablative) To escape, get away.
