Romanian

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): [va]

Etymology 1

Probably from the third-person singular present indicative of vrea (to want), used in its special conjugation as an auxiliary verb (cf. the first-person voi ((I) will), supposedly from Latin *voleo). An alternative etymology is that it began originally as the now rare word in etymology 2 below, from forms of Latin vādere (to go), and was confused with conjugated forms of voi / vrea in Romanian; compare voi cânta ("I will sing") to the constructions in French je vais chanter and Spanish voy a cantar with the same meaning (literally, "I go to sing")

Verb

(el/ea) va (modal auxiliary, third-person singular form of vrea, used with infinitives to form future indicative tenses)

  1. (he/she) will
    va fi aici mai târziu?
    will he/she be here later?

Etymology 2

From Latin vādit, third person singular present active indicative of vādō. It is also rarely used as a second person singular imperative form, meaning "go", from Latin vāde (and plural form vați from vāditis). 16th century Transylvanian documents also display respective variant forms and vareți.

Alternative forms

  • (rare)

Verb

va

  1. (to go), only used in mai va (see usage notes).
  2. (regional) go (imperative) (plural vați)
Usage notes

The conjugation for this verb is defective, with the only remaining form being va, used in the expression "mai va", meaning "it will take longer or there is more to go (until then)".

Synonyms
  • (to go): merge, duce
  • (go): du-te, duceți-vă
