Dictionary entry: mentally


Traduceri principale
mentally adv(intellectually)mental adv.
She certainly seems mentally capable of the job.
mentally adv(relating to the mind)mental adv.
He was branded mentally incapable of work.

The correct translation - and this is a BIG issue - is „mintal” (see dexonline for easier acces, or any paperback dictionary), as „mental” in Romanian only relates to „mentality” in the 1st Oxford meaning here: Mentality | Definition of Mentality by Oxford Dictionary on Lexico.com also meaning of Mentality

    Thank you for pointing this out. The comment is pertinent, however, the Romanian „mental” encompasses a broader use. It does not relate only to „mentality” (dexonline). For the precise English entry above and for the suggested phrase, „mintal” should have been indeed the correct translation. Your suggestion was implemented and the dictionary entry will be updated.
