Thank you! It's the result of a merger between attentō "I try" and attendō "I wait". The descendant of the past participle of attendō - attentum - had previously shifted to atte(n)sum by analogy with prehendō, prehe(n)sum "I take, taken".
Then the merger spread this form to both verbs, and the descendant of attēsum is attis.
That's what I suspected. I did something similar in an earlier version of Silvish. [:D] The change in meaning is unique but believable.



Well, now I've got to try it in my romlang.

If you can do what you're trying to do, you'll own the world. You know that, don't you?

It kind of had to happen because the usual ser- stem gets worn down to just s- with my sound changes.

Oh of course! The Boral cognate is removed enough:
sprovar undergo, experience
