    Polish-Russian cognates

    After trying to learn both Polish and Russian for only a few months on my own, I have already noticed quite a few common/close words between the two languages. I think it would be interesting (and useful) to have a thread with Polish and Russian words that are close in meaning and pronunciation. I know it would not be practical to list every word, but I think it would be for people to list words that they can think of whether that be a long or short list. I also think it would be a good way to learn new words in both languages if English translations are posted.

    Here are a few words that I can think of to get it started:

    [list]ja = я (I)
    my = мы (we)
    ty = ты (you)
    wy = вы (plural version of you)
    on = он (he)
    ona = она (she)
    ono = оно (it)
    oni/one = они (they)
    m

    I know what you mean; there are countless words that both languages have in common. The idea I had at the time I posted this thread was for people to post a few words they know that are the same in both languages so maybe someone could only know one language, but be able to communicate in the other. As I see though it is not catching on and is not as great of an idea as I thought it was at the time. If someone wants to delete this thread, they can feel free to do so.
