Random thoughts about Spanish, German and Filipino languages

  • I’ve noticed that the Spanish word puso (I believe it’s one of the conjugated forms of the word “poner” = to put) is spelled the same way as “puso,” which means “heart” in Filipino.
  • On the other hand, the German words damit and lang (“thus” and “long” respectively, to the best of my knowledge), are spelled the same way as the Filipino words “damit” and “lang” (“clothing/dress” and “only” respectively).
  • Totally different languages, similar-looking words, totally different meanings.
