OHG. gi-, ga-, Goth. ga-, and perhaps to Latin con-;
originally meaning, together. Cf. Com-
A prefix of obscure meaning, originally used with verbs,
adverbs, adjectives, nouns, and pronouns. In the Middle
English period, it was little employed except with verbs,
being chiefly used with past participles, though occasionally
with the infinitive. Ycleped, or yclept, is perhaps the only
word not entirely obsolete which shows this use.
That no wight mighte it see neither yheere. --Chaucer.
Neither to ben yburied nor ybrent. --Chaucer.
Note: Some examples of Chaucer's use of this prefix are; ibe,
ibeen, icaught, ycome, ydo, idoon, ygo, iproved,
ywrought. It inough, enough, it is combined with an
adjective. Other examples are in the Vocabulary.
[1913 Webster] Spenser and later writers frequently
employed this prefix when affecting an archaic style,
and sometimes used it incorrectly.
