ETYM Latin Maeander, orig., a river in Phrygia, proverbial for its many windings, Greek: cf. French méandre.
A curve in a stream.
Loop-shaped curve in a river flowing across flat country. As a river flows, any curve in its course is accentuated by the current. The current is fastest on the outside of the curve where it cuts into the bank; on the curve's inside the current is slow and deposits any transported material. In this way the river changes its course across the flood plain.
A loop in a river's flow may become so accentuated that it becomes cut off from the normal course and forms an oxbow lake. The word comes from the river Menderes in Turkey.
Nagla promena pravca reke, najčešće ispred klisura. (grč.)
Okuka, krivina, zavijutak.
