Compound verbs are treated under the simple verbs from which they are
derived. To this there are two exceptions : (1) When neither the simple
verb nor any other compound formed from it occurs in the text, and (2) in
the case of certain verbs like sumo and surgo, which, though themselves com-
pounds, came to be regarded as simple verbs, and served as a basis for other
compounds. The star prefixed to certain simple verbs indicates that they are
not found in the text, but that two or more compounds occur.

All matter within square brackets is etymological. The bracketed words
when not translated occur independently in the Vocabulary.
