If You know some you can share it here.

- Ganove (German) - Ganovo (Assyrian) - Meaning: crook (criminal)

- Pardeysa (Assyrian) - Par(a)d e ys a (e) (English) (as we know the vowels are very variable in our font)

Do You know some other of such words ?

I think the English word "paradise" and the Assyrian version both come from Persian.

Anyway, there's "sumac" (from soomaqa/smoqa), "sultan" (from shulTana), and "noria" (from na`oora). Then there are a lot of religious words/names, like "abbot" (from ava), "mammon" (from mamona), "Gehenna," "aceldama" and a bunch of other ones.

There are a ton of these kinds of similarities in Japanese.

For example:

Nani (Assyrian)= [my] Grandma
Nani (Japanese)= What?

There are a whole bunch of other ones I can't remember right now.

Hey, guys, let's just write the words with the same or similar meaning. Here are a few more words: Habis (Turkish) - Hbishyo (Assyrian) - meaning: prison, haydor (Turkish) - Hedor - meaning: sorrounding, qasr (Arabic) - qasro (Assyrian) - meaning: castle.

qasro (Assyrian) - meaning: castle.                       

And in Spanish the word is alcázar. Pronounced either like alka-sar or alka-thar depending on the person's accent.  Emphasis is on the first syllable.  Obviously, due to the long period of Moorish rule, the Spanish got the word from the Arabic, but I just thought you'd like to know.  Another of my favorite Spanish ones is aceituna, with the first c being either an s or a th sound.  It comes from zaytoun.  There are a lot of semitic words in Spanish that can be traced back to the Arabs, and I'm sure many of those can be traced back to Assyrian.

Reading your post reminded me of the etymology for the word "castle".  And in keeping in line with the title of this thread, here is a link to Dr. Christoph Luxenberg's book, The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran .  Unfortunately, page 227 which begins the discussion on the word's origin is omitted.  Nevertheless, what follows should suffice.  Dr. Luxenberg on the etymology of the English word "castle":

http://books.google.com/books?id=227GhaeKYl4C&lpg=PP1&dq=christoph%20luxenberg&pg=PT228#v=onepage&q=&f=false

Another interesting word he delves into is "Tawra" or the English "Bull".
