Portuguese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Portuguese desejar; from the noun desejo; cf. Latin dēsīderō, dēsīderāre (long for, desire, feel the want of, miss, regret). Possibly corresponds to a Vulgar Latin verb *dēsidiāre, itself perhaps a crossing between Latin dēsīderāre and invidiāre, from invidia. Compare Spanish desear, Catalan desitjar.

Pronunciation[edit]
