Etymology[edit]

From Latin parere, present active infinitive of pariō.

Verb[edit]

parir (first-person singular present paro, first-person singular preterite parí, past participle parido)

  1. (transitive, intransitive, vulgar in some areas) to give birth
    Synonym: dar a luz
  2. (transitive, colloquial) to think up; imagine
  3. (transitive) to explain

Usage notes[edit]

  • Parir is more commonly used in Spain, and is rarely used by Central- and South-Americans, as they believe parir is vulgar, in the sense that it is used to describe when animals give birth. Instead, they use the phrase dar a luz (literally to give to light).
