Origin of semelfactive

  • From New Latin semelfactivus, equivalent to Latin semel (“once, a single time”), from Proto-Indo-European *sḗm (“one, together”); plus factive, from Latin factum (“event, occurrence”), from facere (“to do”), from Proto-Indo-European *dʰeh₁- (“to put, to do”); plus the Latin adjectival suffix -ivus.
