Similarities between Finnish and Turkish language

The famous fish lake in Urfa
Turkish has 60 million native speakers and it has some similarities with Finnish. According to Wikipedia similarities are that words do not have gender, you add to a word different endings and there is a rule how particular vowels fit to a word. There are also Turkish words what are written and said exactly in a same way in Finnish but have totally different meaning. Here few examples: nakit in Finnish sausages; in Turkish cash, sana in Finnish word; in Turkish to you,  rahat in Finnish money; in Turkish comfortable and sanat in Finnish words; in Turkish art.

    1. I didn't say that rahat, sanat or nakit are influenced by Baltic languages. I just pointed out that these words appear also in Finnish language but the origin of the words and meaning of the words are different.

  7. these two languages may be in the same group as some scholars believe but have nothing to do with each other as there is no similar word in their basic vocabulary such as the words "fire", "water", "sky" etc.
