Pronoun[edit]

ille

  1. he

Latin[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Latin olle ‎(he, that) (also ollus, olla), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ol-no- or *h₂l̥-no-, from *h₂el- ‎(beyond, other). Cognate with Latin uls ‎(beyond), alius ‎(other), alter ‎(the other), Umbrian ulu ‎(to that place), Old Church Slavonic лани ‎(lani, last year, literally in that (year)).

Initial i- from o- has no parallel case and may be due to contamination from is, iste or due to the palatalizing effect of l exilis.
