French by Karoline Feyertag, Vienna:

Tituber is a verb that describes the physical movement of stumbling and the sensation of dizziness, as in a drunken state, and is also used in a metaphorical sense.
Tourbillon as a noun describes circular or helicoid air turbulence and is also used in a metaphorical sense.
Étourdissement as a noun refers to the feeling of shock and to the troubles and vertigo a person can sense, as an effect of moral or physical shock. Trouble stems etymologically from the Latin verb turbulare and turbidus (translated into French by troublé, agité, boulversé and désemparé). The connection to the meanings of turning, stumbling, churning, stirring up or revolving, as associated with dizziness and Taumel seems obvious. Turbulentus also refers to a jester and a turbulent movement.
