See also: burta and burtā

RomanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

Perhaps from Vulgar Latin *umbulita (small navel), clipped from Vulgar Latin *umbulicus, from Latin umbilīcus (navel), with [um] being reanalyzed as the feminine indefinite article o at some stage as same is evidenced by related Romanian buric. The latter may have provoked such analogy. On grounds of phonetic difficulties with considered Albanian bark, rather unlikely a substrate word.
