See also: Appendix:Variations of "i"
- A suffix forming infinitives of many verbs.
- Most verbs with infinitives in -î are marked by the once-inchoative infix -ăsc- in many parts of their conjugation, as well as in various derived words; two such verbs are a urî (“to hate”) and a hotărî (“to decide”).
- A sizable group of verbs have infinitives in -î but do not use the infix -ăsc-, and are otherwise fairly regular; these include, among others, the common verb a coborî (“to descend”).
- There is a variant form, -i, derived from the same Latin source.
