Pali and Tagalog Question...

From:Barry Garcia <barry_garcia@...>

I was looking through a dictionary of English - Pali terms, and saw that
"face" in Pali "mukha" is spelled exactly the way that "face" in Tagalog
is spelled "mukha" (/muk'ha?/). Is this a coincidence, or did Tagalog
borrow from Pali*?

* It wouldn't be too strange. I've read that Tagalog has a few Indian
words, but they are few. This one seems like it could be, but of course it
might not.
