Italian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From a Vulgar Latin derivative of Latin jejūnium, from ieiūnium[1][2]. The initial Latin je- or ie- may have changed to de- over time, leading to di- in Italian. Compare the similar Catalan dejuni. Alternatively digiuno may have been regressively derived from the verb digiunare[3][4], and was independent of this Latin word.

Noun[edit]

digiuno m (plural digiuni)

  1. fast, fasting

Etymology 2[edit]

From digiuno, adapted from the Latin jējūnum, iēiūnum.

Noun[edit]

digiuno m (plural digiuni)

  1. (anatomy) jejunum
Related terms[edit]
