In the Latin facere is “to make.”

  1. I make, construct, fashion, frame, build, erect
  2. I make, produce, compose.
  3. I appoint.


From Proto-Italic *fakiō, from Proto-Indo-European *dʰeh₁- (“to put, place, set”), possibly through a later intermediate root *dʰh₁-k-yé/ó-. Cognates include Ancient Greek τίθημι (títhēmi), Sanskrit दधाति (dádhāti), Old English dōn (English do) and Lithuanian dėti (“to put”).

The passive voice is suppletively provided by the unrelated verb fīō (“I become, I am made”).
