EtymologyEdit

des- (un-) +‎ fir (thread) + -a (first-conjugation verbal suffix). Some Romanian etymological dictionaries list it as deriving from a local Vulgar Latin construction *disfīlāre[1](from dis- + fīlāre < fīlum), but this is unlikely, as normally it would become *diffīlāre in Latin.

VerbEdit

a desfira (third-person singular present desfiră, past participle desfirat1st conj.

  1. (rare) to unravel, unwind (usually string or thread)
