Thank you for contributing to our Latin entries. You may find Wiktionary:About Latin useful. Please note that the main entry form for Latin verbs is the first-person (so we use ieiuno, not ieiunare in etymologies).

Also, could you please identify the source in which you found disiunare? I went to add the conjugation, etc., but I cannot find the word in any of my dictionaries. --EncycloPetey 22:05, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

According to the RAE (the Spaniah dictionary), desayunar does not come from a Latin word, but from the assembly of two Spanish ones. In what source did you find reference to disiunare? --EncycloPetey 23:18, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
But we do not include unattested words (see WT:CFI). Wikipedia is not a reliable source for the existence or usage of words. Since the word does not occur in any of the major Latin dictionaries, and is not cited in romance language dictionaries as a root form, I'd say that it may not exist at all and the Wikipedia entry should be edited to reflect this. --EncycloPetey 01:34, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Pleae do not add lengthy etymologies, etc. to infinitives pages. The lemma form for Latin verb entries is not the present active infinitive. Compare the entries for amō and amārē to see what I mean. --EncycloPetey 04:39, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
