Probably from minciunã with the verbal infix -edzu or from a Vulgar Latin root *mentionō (with the Aromanian suffix -edzu), probably ultimately from an alteration of Latin mentior (past participle mentītus) through the influence of mentiō. Compare Daco-Romanian minciună.
minciunedzu (past participle minciunatã)
- I lie. (tell an untruth)
