Im making a list of different cognate's (i.e:- words that are the same within multiple languages) within the indo-european/romance languages of English/French/Italian/Spanish/Portuguese
Below is a link to my list so far, If you know of any good words that I could add to it, please post them.
I would also love any sources of information about cognates, inparticular why cognate words exist within multiple different languages and others do not.
