From Proto-Indo-European *dʰeh₁- (to put, place, set). Cognates include Ancient Greek τίθημι (tithēmi), Sanskrit दधाति (dádhāti), Old English dōn (English do).

present active faciō, present infinitive facere, perfect active fēcī, supine factum. (irregular passive voice)

  1. I do; I make.
    Quid ego feci?
    What have I done?
    Latrocinium modo factum est. (special usage; passive perfect = took place)
    A robbery just took place.
    • Catiline Orations by Cicero (Latin text and English translations may be found here)
      Quam diu quisquam erit qui te defendere audeat, vives, et vives ita ut nunc vivis, multis meis et firmis praesidiis obsessus ne commovere te contra rem publicam possis. Multorum te etiam oculi et aures non sentientem, sicut adhuc fecerunt, speculabuntur atque custodient.
      As long as one person exists who can dare to defend you, you shall live; but you shall live as you do now, surrounded by my many and trusty guards, so that you shall not be able to stir one finger against the republic: many eyes and ears shall still observe and watch you, as they have hitherto done, though you shall not perceive them.

  • The verb has an irregular conjugation as for the passive voice.
  • The singular imperative, face, was later shortened to fac.

Wheelock's Latin, Wheelock, F.M. (6th ed., 2005). (Cited for abbreviation of singular imperative form; p. 51.) HarperCollins, N.Y.
