The word कौन reminds me of the Spanish word "quién".


These IE languages are so fascinating in their shared roots. क्या(kya) reminds me of French quoi


I fact most interrogative pronouns start with some form of K sound.

*Indo-European started with either *Kw or *Ky or *K

In the germanic languages the K-sound shifted to a [x], which became a H word-initially.

In English, Duch and German the H dissapeared in this position.


Regarding Germanic languages, East-Norwegian still has this k(w) in its interogative pronouns. In the others it mostly changed to w.

Here are some pronouns with k in nynorsk for your reference: kva? what? kven? who? kvar? where? korleis? how? kvifor? why? Of course nynorsk is just a written language, but it resembles the East-Norwegian dialects.

What I find even more striking is that the Uralic languages have this k as well. E.g Finnish: Kuka Hungarian : Ki Compare this to French qui

Other similarities I found between IE- and Uralic languages include: Boy, fi: poika, hu: fiú, (which is also son in Romanian) Water, vesi, víz

If interested in these cognates, you should definitely look up the indo-uralic theory. Even according to the nostratic theory, Uralic and Indo-European are the closest to each other.
