CHAT: coincidence

Browsing through Swahili lessons I came across the following:

Una jiko? - Ninalo.
Do you have a stove? - Yes I have (I have it).

So I start thinking, ninalo? I know that word. Not being fluent in
Calénnawn, I look up the word in my own lexicon:

ninálo - keep, hold, wear, carry, "have" sth.

Although not the verb used to describe "to possess" (which is "ássi"),
it is curiously close. I'm sure I had neven seen any Swahili when I
invented the word in Calénnawn.
