if you like we can share here the words who transfered from one language to another and origin of these words.
i don't mean the technical words that transfered from english or french to all the other language.i prefer archaic words.
it is a very interesting struggle for me.
and we can confirm that our knowledge is true or not.
as i know "admiral" is arabic oriented
in arabic it means ' emir ul ma ' - commander of sea. (water)
"mafia" also comes from arabic
it means -secret
Did you know that about half of all the words you speak on a daily basis are derived from Latin and Greek? A few that aren't scientific:
Deus - Latin for male god. Forms word Deity.
Aqua - Latin for water. Forms words such as Aquarium.
Nauta - Latin for sailor. Forms Nautical and some other sea words.
Agricola - Latin for farmer. Forms Agriculture. and some other words.
Terra - Latin for earth/ground. It's commonly used as a prefix.
The words from these languages are used countless numbers of times in science and literature.
kiosk from turkish
kosk in turkish (villa)
Some influence from Old Norse into English, through Norgegian, because my Old Norse is rather poor these days:
Wife came from the word viv, still meaning wife.
Knife came from some word meaning kniv (knife)
And so on.
wine and wein (in german) come both from latin too
gibraltar = Cebel-i Tarik (arabic) Tarik is name of commander of the army who conqured spain
I know a few words which are common to both Turkish and Hindi/Urdu, but the origins are most likely to be either in Persian or Arabic:
hava - air
kitap - book
kalem - pen/pencil
bulbul - nightingale
zemin - earth/ground
sharap - wine
sebze/sabzi - vegetable
duniya - world
misafir - traveller/guest
chai - tea
There are some more, which I cannot recollect presently.
