  TheAlchemist: Mirabile, although I'm not sure if this word exists at all in the Italian language, could be literally translated to "Lookable".
Jun-19-05  AdrianP: "mirabile" = astonishing in Latin (as in "mirabile dictu" - astonishing to say)

  TheAlchemist: Thanks for that <AdrianP>, I must admit I know very little Latin, so I believe you unconditionally :-)

In Italian, the verb "mirare", where this "adjective" (mirabile) could be derived from, has several meanings, mainly "look", "stare" and "aim". There are other verbs derived from it as well, such as "ammirare" (admire).

Dec-19-05  Holden: 12.Nxf7! Simply beautiful. White picks up a rook and two pawns for a knight and bishop, and is given additional compensation by exposing black's king.
