Yeah, and I really don't get it.

Indo-Iranians do this too with the whole white race and how it "evolved" in Iran and the surrounds. They'd use terms such as "we are the true Aryans", "Nordic race came from us", "Aryans this, Aryans that", when *cough cough* most Iranid peoples are olive to dark skinned. It just so reeks inferiority complex.

And now we have a whole new story with the OP, that most Eurasian languages involved from the Turkic branch. Um, okay...

The Polish word "dureń" [a fool] and the Mongolian word "дүйрэн" (duiren) [stupid, moron] are related.
The Russian word "дурень" (duren) [a fool] comes from the Mongolian word "дүйрэн" (duiren) [stupid, moron].
Add to these the Ukrainian words "дурень" (duren) [a fool] and "дурня" (durnya) [a fool, an imbecile].
Add also the Belarusian word "дурань" (duran) [a fool, an imbecile].

It's true.
The words "dona" in Portuguese and "doa" in Spanish, although don't translate as "woman" as in italian, are often used ibefore the name of elder women to show respect, just like "lady" in english. The male form in Spanish is "don" (also a contraction of "dominus"; portuguese-speakers use "senhor" instead). "Madonna" (like french "madame") comes from "Mea Domina", literally "my lady". A connection of japanese "onna" seems to be very unlikely.

And with the Russian word "она" (ona) [she]?


Hebrew word אח (ah) [brother] is related to the Mongolian word "ах"(ah) [a brother, older brother].

Turkmen word "салкын" (salkin) means cool.
Kyrgyz "салкын" (salkin) [cold, chill].
Kara-Kalpak "салқын" (salqin) [cold].
Urum "салхын" (salhin) [cool].

And what is the Portuguese word related to them?

The book "The Bashkirs and the origin of the Norwegian words" can be viewed here

Kazakh "салқын" (salqin) [cold, coolness, gelid].
Uzbek "салқин" (salqin) [cool].
Kumyk "салкъын" (salqin) [coolness].
Nogai "салкын" (salkin) [cold].

In modern Turkish, Azerbaijani, and Uyghur languages this word is missing.

What about Spanish or Italian?

It is a pity that Cristiano Ronaldo and Irina Shayk broke up.
They were almost the relatives.

Here are the photos of another Bashkir belle.

Greek word ώρα (ora) [hour, time].
Add to them Uzbek word "ора" (ora) [interval of time or space, a space between objects, an amount of time between events].
What about "duration"?
