EtymologyModificar

Patrono:Rfscript From Old French aise, of unknown origin. Earliest meaning was that of "elbow-room, opportunity". Conflicting forms in Romance point to an external, non-Latin origin. Possibly from a Patrono:Cel or Patrono:Gem source. Cf Patrono:Bre eaz, ez "easy", Irish adhais "easy, leisure", Old English ēaþe "easy", Gothic azeti "ease", Gothic azets "easy"
