Salvete! Studeo linguae latinae cum Duolingo. Professores scribent " servire = to save". Quid vos cogitatis? Rectum est? Sententia mea est : servire = to serve/to assist ==> Vir benignus uxorem servat

    English but my first language was German
    servare and servire are two different verbs.

    Servat can only be from servare (1st conjugation) ( protect, keep, guard, watch over)

    Servire (4th conjugation) means serve. the 3rd person singular present is servit.

    Anyway no German I asked had any idea what servus originally meant. They just used it
    Servus is very common in all Eastern Europe and especially in Hungary and Austria.
