return to ‘count’
Irslinger, Britta (University of Freiburg/Max Planck Institute for the Science ...
Middle Breton niveraff is first attested in the Catholicon (1499). It can be analyzed as a denominal verb. The basis niver 'number' is borrowed from Latin numerus. This borrowing took place early, cf. Old Breton nimer 'number'. Middle Breton niveraff thus is either inherited from Old Breton or formed productively from niver.
Seems to be used in the same contexts as countaff.
From niver 'number'
