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!
