    Hi Sophielew and welcome to the WR Forums. :)

    I'm moving this thread to the Other Languages Forum, as "Adeste" is probably latin.

    Ciao, Walnut
     
    It is not an italian word!

    It might be the latin verb "ado"..

    It reminds me the xmas song "Adeste, fideles, laeti triumphantes; Venite, venite in Bethlehem. Natum videte
    Regem angelorum...." :D

    Hm, is it derived from "ad-esse" which doesn't exist?

    sum - I am
    es - you are
    est - he/she/it is
    sumus - we are
    estis - you are
    sunt - they are
    es - be!
    este - be (several people)!

    But I don't know "adsum/ades/etc...", only "absum/abes/etc..."

    Could someone please explain to me what the root of this word is?

    "Adeste" comes form "adsum, es, adfui, adesse".
    It does exist.
    You could look it up on a latin dictionary. I have one and I've already checked it. :)

    Okay, I just looked it up:

    adesse: be there; attend; help; give so. one's support

    SO ...

    abeste: be there! Attend it! Help (them/him/etc.)! Give (them/him/etc.) your support!
