inter (third-person singular simple present inters, present participle interring, simple past and past participle interred)
- To bury in a grave.
- To confine, as in a prison.
From Proto-Indo-European *h₁enter (“between”). Cognates include Sanskrit अन्तर् (antár, “between, within, into”), Oscan 𐌀𐌍𐌕𐌄𐌓 (anter, “between”), Old Irish eter (“between”), Old High German untar (“between”) and German unter (“among”).
PIE adverb *h₁enter gave rise to the adjective *h₁énteros (“inner, what is inside”), whence also Latin interior (“interior”) and intrā (“inside, within”).
