Re­moli­no and Mill

Re­moli­no (Span­ish for “whirlpool” or “swirl”) comes from the Lati­no molinum, which means.… mill. This makes sense: a mill just moves around and around in a cir­cu­lar mo­tion — for ex­am­ple, think of a wind-mill. In fact, the Eng­lish mill comes from the same root! So we can see the m‑l root in both words!
