Alternative forms[edit]


From Vulgar Latin volēre, from Latin velle, present active infinitive of volō, possibly passing through an older form *vurea in Romanian before reaching its current state (the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person singular present forms were reformed from the infinitive analogically; cf. the alternative conjugation now used as an auxiliary verb). Ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *welh₁-.



a vrea ‎(third-person singular present vrea, past participle vrut2nd conj.

  1. to want
    Vreau -l întâlnesc pe prietenul tău Radu.
    I want to meet your friend Radu.
