    It's very interesting to see that the words posted in the previous post by Humanist extend their similarities to Arabic as well..Some words are completely foreign but yet there are these particular words that do seem very familiar, and I'll post below in their Arabic version:

    1. Rumman
    2. Tamanna (to wish - related to think perhaps?)
    5. Daqqiqa (it can mean either one minute, or precision)
    12. La yasmaa (He cannot hear - the word 'hear' originally is samaa')
    13. Hadi (Calm, serene)
    15. Jild
    27. Den/ Dayn (<---standard dialect)
    30. Yalbas (present perfect)/Labisa (past tense)

    We always hear about the common root of all these languages, but when you're actually faced with the words and have the ability to compare them, it's really intriguing..

    Here is an interesting one.

    Akkadian: kāribu (feminine : kāribtu ) - [Religion]

    i) blesser , pilgrim , thankful * / grateful * ; 2) -noun- : one who blesses , a blessing priest ; niqê kāribu : offerings for the blessing priest

    In Assyrian-Aramaic:

    Kariwa = godfather
    Karuta = godmother

    There is a pretty good lexicon on the net with Akkadian. It is remarkable how so many words are still in our Assyrian language.

    What's wrong with you?

    Modern Hebrew sounds like an artificial Semitic language with lots of oy and on pronunciation. Nothing beautiful about that.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Some, again, will be common in one or more Semitic tongues. Not saying there are genuine associations for all. A person with better mastery of the language (e.g. Birko), could likely spot many more. And, I have only searched through a tiny fraction of the available resources.
