From dis- (asunder, in pieces, apart, in two) +‎ pereō (perish).



dispereō (present infinitive disperīre, perfect active disperiī); irregular conjugation, deponent

  1. (intransitive) I am destroyed, perish; go completely to ruin, am lost or undone.


Irregular conjugation, but similar to fourth conjugation. The perfect is usually contracted to disperiī, but occasionally appears as disperīvī.
