Does anybody have an idea why the Indonesian word for "bucket" - ember - is
so close to the Gipsy word for "bucket" - embra - ?
(In Hindi it's differrent.)
Another interesting coincidence I am wondering about is the Finnish and the
Indonesian words for "turkey cock" - kalkkuna and kalkun correspondingly.
