Usage notes

  • The word ad is an antithesis to ab (just as in is to ex; in a progressive order of relation, ad denotes, first, the direction toward an object; then the reaching of or attaining to it; and finally, the being at or near it.)
  • Often used of geographical position of a place in reference to the points of compass, with the verbs iaceō (lie, be situated), vergō (incline, slope), spectō (observe, see) etc.:
    Asia iacet ad meridiem et austrum, Europa ad septentriones et aquilonem.
    Asia lies near the prime meridian and the south, Europe near the northern regions and northern wind. (There are two words for north.)
    Ad Atticam vergente.
    Inclining to Attic.
  • When appended to the beginning of a word, ad often becomes ap- when followed by ‘p’, as in appretiō, from pretium. But note that adpretiō is also found.
