Aromanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

It is generally agreed to be from Proto-Indo-European *bʰel- (to gleam), but there is disagreement whether the word is one of the earliest (Proto-) Romanian loans from Proto-Slavic *bolto, or whether it is a pre-Roman substrate word. Compare Daco-Romanian baltă. There is also an Albanian cognate, baltë. Cf. also Serbian blato, Russian boloto.

Noun[edit]

baltã f

  1. puddle, pool, pond
