Lewis & Short

Parsing inflected forms may not always work as expected. If the following does not give the correct word, try Latin Words or Perseus.

compulso, āre, v. freq. [id.].

  1. I. To press or strike violently (post-class. and rare), App. M. 7, p. 197, 16.
  2. II. To contend or fight together, Tert. Apol. 20; cf. compulsatio.
