Delodephius wrote:In Gothic the 'doctor' is called lekeis, in most Slavic languages it is lekar derived from lek which means 'cure'. Or 'debt' is in Gothic dulg while in Old Slavonic it was dlǔgǔ which is derived from a same adjective which means 'long'. I don't remember much now, it was some time ago. But in my opinion comparison of vocabulary does not always mean that two or more languages are related, rather the whole of vocabulary and grammar.
