Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from a Vulgar Latin root *inclagāre, from metathesis of *incoāglāre, from *incoāgulāre (compare Aromanian ncljeg, ncljigari, Romansch inquaglier), intensive of Latin coagulāre (compare French cailler, Italian cagliare), present active infinitive of coagulō. Alternatively, simply from Vulgar Latin *clagāre < coāgulāre, with the prefix în- added later in Romanian (and therefore a doublet of coagula, a borrowing).

Verb[edit]

a închega (third-person singular present încheagă, past participle închegat1st conj.

  1. to curdle, thicken, condense, coagulate
  2. to clog
