Russian[edit]

торнадо

Etymology[edit]

From English tornado, from Spanish tronada (thunderstorm), from tronar (to thunder), from Latin tonare (to thunder), from Proto-Indo-European *(s)tene- (to thunder). The 'o' and 'r' were reversed in English (metathesis) under influence of Spanish tornar (to twist, to turn), from Latin tornare (to turn). Spanish later borrowed the word tornado with the same spelling and meaning as in English.
