Etymology[edit]

From German Abiturient, from Latin abituriēns, from both abiī, a form of abeō (I depart, go away), from ab- (from, away from), from ab (from, away from, of), from Proto-Italic *ab, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂epó (off, away) + (I go, move), from Proto-Italic *eō (I go), from earlier *ejō, from Proto-Indo-European *h₁éyti (to go), and from -turiō (I desire, wish), from Proto-Italic *-tōr + *-eō (from earlier *-ejō), from Proto-Indo-European *-tōr + *-éyeti, from *-yeti (creates transitive imperfective verbs).

Equivalent to abitur +‎ -ent, first part from German Abitur, a shortening of Abiturium, itself short for Latin examen abiturium, from abitureō (I wish to leave), desiderative construction of abeō (I leave, go off), from both ab- (from, away from), from ab (from, away from, of), from Proto-Italic *ab, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂epó (off, away), and from (I go, move), from Proto-Italic *eō (I go), from earlier *ejō, from Proto-Indo-European *h₁éyti (to go, be going), from *h₁ey- (to go). Last part from Latin -ēns (genitive singular -entis), suffix of present participles of verbs in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th conjugations.
