porre

  1. (archaic) singular present subjunctive of porren

Italian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Inherited from Latin pōnere (to put, place), with pōnō > *ponjo> *pogno > pongo subsumed to the 'L-pattern' of vengo (cf. Old Italian vegno, vegnamo, vegnono) in a much-debated process of 'velar allomorphy'. This is mirrored in Spanish pongo, vengo, but with an opposite outcome in Portuguese ponho, venho.[1]

  • IPA(key): /ˈpor.re/
  • (file)
  • Rhymes: -orre
  • Hyphenation: pór‧re

pórre (first-person singular present póngo, first-person singular past historic pósi, past participle pósto or pòsto[2], first-person singular imperfect ponévo, auxiliary avere) (transitive)

  1. to put
    Synonym: mettere
  2. to set, to place
