  • *iti


From Proto-Indo-European *h₁éyti (to go). Cognates include Lithuanian eĩti (to go, walk), Latin (to go).

The suppletive past participle stem *šьd- is likely from the same root as *xoditi, although the exact derivation of the form is problematic.[1]


*jьti impf

  1. to go



ісці́ (iscí), идти́ (idtí), iść, ísť (< *id-ti) are back-formed from the present stem
