I've had plenty of Maldivian and Indian friends, I feel Dhivehi has more Sinhala words than Hindi. That's just what I felt.

No wonder mongolians have many common words with kazahs, altays .. from times Altin Orda, maybe borrowed from turkics

How about Akhtar and astir? You are comparing borrowed words. Compare the root words

Why did you not use root words and not borrowed words. After all both Persian and Greek languages are related because they are both parts of the indo-European languages

I am surprised you didn't mention Portuguese- the SH sound (X) is exactly the same way words that end up with the letter S are pronounced in Portuguese. Obviously, Spain and Portugal being neighboring countries so that makes a lot of sense.

I would say any Scandinavian can learn to understand the other Scandinavian languages easily with just a little bit of practice and exposure. As a Norwegian I have frequent business meetings with colleagues and customers in Sweden and Denmark, and I've always spoken Norwegian to them, with very few issues, I may need to clarify a word here or there. Sometimes the Swedes and Danes have a bit of trouble understanding each other and so they often start out with English, but if they actually give it a try they understand a lot more than they expected. I try to encourage Scandinavian as much as possible :) I think a big part of it is just training your ears and brain on the differences in pronunciation. Yeah there are some unique words in each language, but you can often infer from context, or adapt a little. I frequently "svorsk" my Norwegian a bit when talking to a Swede as I am aware of some Norwegian words being foreign to them. It's easier for us Norwegians I think because we were traditionally more exposed to the other Scandinavian languages via culture (television shows etc), so we have a bit of a head start. I also think older generations of Scandinavians are better at understanding the languages than the younger. It really would be a great loss for the region if we lost the ability to communicate with each other without English.

Thank you for organising and posting this great video. Wonderful to see all the side comments it has prompted by contributors from different liguistic communities. While travelling, I often hear - and am grateful for - stories of the influence of one language on another - but such stories are limited to a few words and depend on the know ledge of the person explaining. Here it is such a delight, as if people from many lands have suddenly turned up at the piazza in some small town in Sicily to make their contribution. For anyone interested in the history of words or language this type of virtual forum is a blessing!

I'm northern German and I used to work ina Hospital in NY. The visitors would come in walking over the bridge on saturdays, they are not allowed to drive or push the button of the elevators or use any electricity on saturdays. I was in shock that I could understand every word they said. It sounded like an ancient german dialect. Another thing is , A lot of the older women would just look at me and ask if I understand them and if I m polish or german. Just by looking at me. It was funny sometimes.

I think these Turks do not know Middle Anatolian Turkish dialect, they only know the Istanbul dialect. elleşmek-- eğlemek oyalamak ---sabaha kadar konukları eğledim. adi meaning basic. adi giysi- (basic clothes) we use them in central anotolian dialect.

Wrong one is Southern Aryan(Indo-European) the other Semitic. And finally similarities are due to 700 Year occupation of Sicily bye Arabs and Berbers. It is amazing how woke movement keeps putting a spin on history, and unwittingly well meaning people are assisting in the perpetuating this crap .
