Also to the numbers: Dutch:1=één --- én Twee - te I've already wondered whether the pronouns might be derived from numbers and whether there is some ancient connection between the Indo-European Languages and the Finno-Ugric ones
Also note that in many of both the first person (either plural or singular) pronoun starts with m, like a form to say 1 in Greek (μία/mia). Finnish we-me Persian I-man Not to speak about verb conjugations which often happen to have an m in de first person I know - ja znaM(pl) We are - Mes esaMe(lt) soM(ct)
Another prevalent form of the first person pronoun is jag (north-germanic and slavic) Guess how to say one in Persian:yeg
Even the slavic 1 jeden looks like this
3 in Persian:sah:sounds like she, su(spanish),sin(swedish),swój/свой(slavic)
And even how 3 sounds in Chinese is remarkable (三/san)
But well,maybe it's just me who is crazy and sees these things but I really think that there might be some deeper connections between languages than just Indo-European
Btw:Feel free to downvote my comment if you think it's weird or socially unacceptable
I just had to write down my (perhaps false) observation
Have a nice day
I would guess that the correspondence between 'qui' and 'ki' is purely coincidental but that that between 'tu' and 'te' shows influence of one language over the other or, more probably, Latin over both.
Both 'who' and 'you' are common words and so have a higher probability of being monosyllabic rather than bi- or multisyllabic. Hence, there would be a not insignificant chance of correspondence.
There is no "g"sound in "gy"! In Hungarian, the combination"gy" is a digraph that represents a single sound. It sounds similar to the "dy" sound that you would make saying English "during".
Please take a minute to review the Hungarian alphabet. You will see that "gy" is a "letter" on its own!
