EtymologyEdit

From Latin tormenta, plural of tormentum. The lack of a diphthong may be explained by influence from the learned borrowing tormento, or because it may have been a nautical loan from another language such as Portuguese (see above), or possibly Old French (cf. modern tourmente)[1].

tormenta f (plural tormentas)

  1. storm, thunderstorm, lightning storm
