I thought, if Ibero-Romance can derive their "arrive" from "fold", and French from "shore", then I can derive mine from "swim to". [xD]

Good verb [tick], bad prefix [cross]. Hint: Italian [akˈkaːsa].

Re: Guess the Word in Romlangs

Is it *ex-andare/ambulare (cf. Catalan anar)? and if so does it mean roughly to leave? You're on the right track, but the original verb signified a rather specific kind of movement [;)].
