adicii +‎ -o


  • IPA(key): [adiˈt͡sio]
  • Audio:
  • Rhymes: -io

adicio (accusative singular adicion, plural adicioj, accusative plural adiciojn)

  1. addition (act of adding)
    La signo de la adicio estas plus ().
    The addition sign is plus ().



From ad- (to, towards, at) +‎ iaciō (I throw, hurl).


  • (Classical) IPA(key): /aˈː/, [äˈd̪ɪkioː]

  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /adˈji.t͡ʃi.o/, [äd̪ˈjiːt͡ʃio]
