Catalan[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From an Old Provençal verb (compare Occitan anar), possibly from Vulgar Latin *amnāre, variant form of *amlāre, from Latin ambulāre, present active infinitive of ambulō. However, amblar also existed in Old Provençal (compare Catalan and Occitan amblar). Cf. also French aller. Alternatively, anar may derive from Vulgar Latin *and(i)tāre, from *ambitāre, frequentative of Latin ambiō, ambīre (compare Spanish andar, Italian andare), or perhaps adnāre. The forms beginning with v- are from vadō.

Verb[edit]

anar (first-person singular present vaig, past participle anat)

  1. to go
  2. (auxiliary verb, taking an infinitive) used to form the "periphrastic past" (passat perifràstic); see usage notes below for more information
    Ahir vaig parlar amb ma germana. — "Yesterday, I spoke with my sister."

Conjugation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

The second set of conjugations are used along with the infinitive of another verb in order to form the "periphrastic past" (passat perifràstic), an analytical construction equivalent in terms of tense and aspect to the simple preterite. For example, vaig cantar bears the same meaning as cantí ('I sang').

The indicative forms of the auxiliary, except for the third-person singular, may be reinforced with -re-, but, in the standard language, only when the corresponding normal first-conjugation simple preterite endings have it. For example, vares cantar may be used instead of vas cantar but not *vàreig cantar instead of vaig cantar; compare the typical second-person singular ending -ares with its first-person singular equivalent -í. The subjunctive forms are literary and only sporadically occur, and so rather than the periphrastic past subjunctive, it is typical for the imperfect subjunctive to be used (therefore cantés rather than vagi cantar, for example), despite the demand for the perfective aspect.

Etymology[edit]

From an Old Provençal verb (compare Catalan anar), possibly from a Vulgar Latin *and(it)āre, from *ambitāre, frequentative of Latin ambiō, ambīre (compare Spanish andar, Italian andare), or perhaps adnāre. Alternatively from a Vulgar Latin *amnāre < *amlāre, from Latin ambulāre, present active infinitive of ambulō (however, Old Provençal had a separate word amblar, whence Catalan and Occitan amblar). Cf. also French aller. The forms beginning with v- are from vadō.
