Morphemic analysis: maie-χe
Meaning: unknown

Attestation: RN-1 (laseke/maieχe) (1)


The identification of the word as a verb is based on the segmentation into a base maie* plus the preterite active ending -ke. The prevalence of forms in -ke on slabs of stone from the Bozen/Nonsberg area, all hapax legomena, maieχe itself co-occurring with another one on the same slab, sheds some doubt on this interpretation.
