ver

  1. true

Latin[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Italic *wezor (stem *wezn-), from Proto-Indo-European *wésr̥ ‎(spring). The original Italic form gave *veror, genitive *vēnis, with -s- lost before -r- with lengthening of the preceding vowel, as is usual in Latin. The -n- of the genitive stem was then replaced by the -r- of the nominative, and the genitive stem was then extended back to the nominative.[1]

Cognate with Ancient Greek ἔαρ ‎(éar), Old Norse vár, Lithuanian vasara, Sanskrit वसर् ‎(vasar, morning) and वसन्त ‎(vasantá, spring), Persian بهار ‎(bahar, spring), Old Armenian գարուն ‎(garun), and Old Church Slavonic вєсна ‎(vesna).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

vēr n ‎(genitive vēris); third declension

  1. spring (season)

Inflection[edit]

Third declension neuter.
