Can't figure out what dedit means

Hi
I am translating a sentence and am stuck on the word dedit.
Could someone tell me the meaning?
Thanks

It's the third person singular perfect active indicative of do, whose third principal part is dedi. So, 'he/she/it gave'.

It has a great likeness in appearance to English <i>do</i> and <i>did</i>. But supposedly it is not related, Latin <b>do</b> going back to Indo-European do- and English <i>do</i> going back to the root dhe-<pre></pre>
