Etymology


This is a compound of the intensifying or superlative prefix an-, carrying the idea of “very” or “most”, and quantaina the perfect passive participle of quanta adj. “full” (KWAT, Narqelion, VT39:8, VT43:28). This is a calque of “complete” from the Latin completus, past participle of complere “to fill up, complete the number of”. The components of complere are the intensive prefix, com-, and the verb plere “to fill”.
