I don’t speak English very well and I found a very strange word for me: gyre. It’s strange because a lot of Romanian words are related with that one, like “sens giratoriu” who’s meaning is “roundabout”, however, there is no correspondent of this word in Romanian.
I found a definition of this word with Google Translate:
Below is a list of the uses of the word gyres that i found with some help from Google:
- Zones of minimum upwelling occur in the central regions of the oceans known as the gyres .
- The movement hasn’t been more like a series of wiggly gyres .
- Currents flow in large rotating loops called gyres .
- .. turning in their gyres .
It’s that word frequently used or there are other synonyms of gyre who are more commonly used?
