Italian[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

  • anco (archaic or Tuscan)

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Assuming that anco represents the original form, likely a rebracketing of ancora as anco + ora.[1][2] A borrowing from Old Occitan ancui (on this day) has also been suggested,[3] but this would neither explain the stress position of anche, nor the lack of a final -ui (an acceptable ending in Italian; cf. lui).

Adverb[edit]

anche

  1. also, too, as well, besides
  2. even
