السلام عليكم ورحمة الله

I am often amazed when words in different langauges ring familiar, الحمد لله it's as though my ears have become attuned to the Arabic sound. If you know words that are similar to Arabic in any language you've heard or speak - post them in!

I'll start off with one:

πορτοκάλι - portokaali (Greek)
