Latin

Etymology 1

Although formally a perfectly regular form synchronically, it has most likely become to be used as a greeting because of a paronymic contamination with earlier Latin havĕ borrowed from Punic *ḥawe (live!) (2sg imp.) akin to Hebrew חוה(Eve), which also explains form avō (from Punic *ḥawū 2pl imp.) attested since Plautus.

Pronunciation

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈa.weː/
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈa.ve/, [ˈaː.vɛ]

  2. hail! hello! greetings! (a formal expression of greeting)

Usage notes

  • At least around the first century CE, popular and probably original greeting form havĕ was not considered suitable for formal settings.
  • This is the singular form. When addressing a group, avēte is used.

Usage notes
  • The feminine noun ave is like other feminine nouns starting with a stressed a sound in that it takes the definite article el (normally reserved for masculine nouns) in the singular when there is no intervening adjective:
el ave
  • However, if an adjective, even one that begins with a stressed a sound such as alta or ancha, intervenes between the article and the noun, the article reverts to la.
