Etymology 1[edit]

Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this Latin entry be cleaned up giving the reason: "This verb is defective (according to dictionaries and grammars, e.g. L&S "first pers. pres. indic. and perf. forms not in use"). So either the inflection table includes Medieval or New Latin forms or made-up forms. More likely should be that some forms were made up by the template in use, but if all forms really are attestable there should at least be a note mentioning that it was defective in Classical Latin.".
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.

Onomatopoeic; compare Ancient Greek εὐάζω (euázō).
