Pali – Lithuanian – Sanskrit

Well, it is known that Lithuanian language has maintained immense quantity of words and grammatical forms that are very similar to Sanskrit. Since I am in Nepal I became curious discovering the mindblowing similarities between Lithuanian and Pali, which also has roots in Sanskrit. Here is what I see:

Honey: Madhu (pali) – Medus (lith.)
Who are you?: Ko tvam asi? (pali) – Kas tu esi? (lith.)
When: kada (pali) – kada (lith.)
Eye: Akhi (pali) – Akis (lith.)
Piece: Khanda (pali), to bite – Kanda (lith.)
Village: Gama (pali) – kaimas (lith.)
Foot: Pada (pali), soal – Padas (lith.)
Vehicle: Ratha (pali), wheel – ratas (lith.)
Dog: sunakha (pali), sunekas (lith.)

And so on….

  1. Darkness in sanskrit is “Tamsuma” (not sure about sanskrit spelling), the same in Lithuanian

      aaa! augustas ir katja! i thought you were a myth, obviously you exist indeed 🙂

  2. Čia tik sentimentai. 10 žodžių iš 10000 dar nieko nereiškia. O kad ir taip, kas iš to? Buvo ir yra vienas pasaulis ir jo gyventojai. Visi esantys, numanomi, ar dar tik kuriami ryšiai yra visiškai natūralūs ir taip ir turi būti. Ai, nebežinau ką norėjau pasakyt…

    taigis taigis, kad viskas yra absoliuti kosmine kose, bet smagu rasti, kaip dalykai yra susije. tarkim zodis “kuchi”, kas reiskia skrandi, uzsiliko gruzijoj. “pancara” – pali kalboj reiskia narva, o turku, gruzinu ir dar kur reiskia langa. tai va tas idomu, kaip keiciasi zodziu reiksme. “rasa” pali kalboj reiskia skoni. o pas mus tai jau nebe skonis, bet zodis, manau tas pats. tada “rupa” reiskia forma. tarkim koks shiva turi daug “rupa”, israisku. nu va, o mes turim rupintojeli, ir galvojam, kad jis rupinasi. isties nesirupina jis, man rodos.

    Šri Lankoje singalų kalboje taip pat daug žodžių sutampa.
    Pvz. Veršis – varsis
    peilis – peijl
    Kitų neužsirašiau tarimo, bet atitinka lietuviškus:
    mediena, eiti (tam tikrose formose), kardas, malti
