A great thing about taking german and norwegian concomitantly... Abhängig - A lot of paronyms... !

just some english corrections: concomitant -> naturally associated to each other (probably want to say concurrently -> at the same time), paronym -> word that is derived from another in the same language (you probably want cognates -> words derived from the same root word from a parent language).
