Etymology[edit]

The infinitive and forms beginning with j- derive from Latin eō, īre, while the forms beginning with v- derive from corresponding forms of vādō, vādere. Compare Spanish ir, Italian ire, Istriot , Neapolitan , Portuguese ir, Aragonese ir, Asturian dir.

In some not homogeneous areas in Sicily, inside or nearby Gallo-Italic enclaves, the forms made upon īre are made instead on annari, from Vulgar Latin *andō, *andāre, of disputed origin. Compare Italian andare, and see Vulgar Latin entry for more cognates.

For the reflexive sense, compare Spanish irse and Italian andarsene.
