  2. first-person singular subjunctive form of usca.

Etymology 2[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly from the verb usca or alternatively from Latin sucus, contaminated with with the former (see also suc, which may be a borrowed doublet). Another theory suggests an Ancient Greek root *οἴσυκος (*oísukos) < οἴσυπος (oísupos).
