Usage notes[edit]

The basic meaning "go" applies to any kind of animate or inanimate motion: walk, ride, sail, fly, etc.

Inflection[edit]

Irregular conjugation, but similar to fourth conjugation. The third principal part is most often contracted to , but occasionally appears as īvī. Likewise, the perfect active infinitive and pluperfect subjunctive stem are most often contracted to isse, but rarely can be found in the full form iisse.
