Mnemonic suggestion for the word 'oglindă': Linda is ogling at herself in the mirror.
In Russian the verb 'oglyadet' (оглядеть) means 'to examine' while the verb 'oglyadyvat'sa' (оглядываться) means 'to look back'.
has oglinda anything to do with Latin oculus (eye) or is it just a similarity
In Polish "ogląda" (which I think is too similar of a word to be a coincidence) is a third person singular verb form meaning "watches", "looks at" or "inspects".
The DEX claims it comes from the slavic word "oglendati".
Thanks.. Now remains to be seen what is the etymology of this word.
”This mirror is the newest” should also be accepted.
Wouldn't that be " Aceasta oglindă este cea mai nouă"?
