Mnemonic suggestion for the word 'oglindă': Linda is ogling at herself in the mirror.
”This mirror is the newest” should also be accepted.
has oglinda anything to do with Latin oculus (eye) or is it just a similarity
The DEX claims it comes from the slavic word "oglendati".
Thanks.. Now remains to be seen what is the etymology of this word.
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".
