From re- (back, again) +‎ (go).



redeō (present infinitive redīre, perfect active rediī, supine reditum); irregular conjugation

  1. I go, move, turn or come back; turn around, return, revert, reappear, recur.
    • Gaius Valerus Catullus, Catullus V, line 4
      Soles occidere et redire possunt
      Suns are able to set and to return.
  2. (usually with ad) I am brought or reduced to; arrive at, reach, attain.
  3. (of revenue) I come in, arise, proceed.


Irregular conjugation, but similar to fourth conjugation. The third principal part is most often contracted to rediī, but occasionally appears as redīvī. Redeunt sometimes appears as the lengthened form redīnunt.
