15 Similar words in Sanskrit and German (Deutsch)

List of 15 similar words in German (Deutsch) and Sanskrit

There are lots of similarities in German and Sanskrit and I am trying to find some words that have common sound (somewhat similar) and same meanings in both the languages. I am compiling them as a list and work on dictionaries and other resources to find the similarity.

In my earlier post, I gathered around 10 similar words in German and Sanskrit. Presently, I am up with another 15 of them and hope you will find them okay. Please feel free to give your reviews and what you think about these types of posts. I have provided the English meanings also so as to make it clear what context I am taking the words.

It is really an engrossing activity to work through different languages and find the similarity between them. I love this. 🙂
