In linguistics, cognates are words that have a common etymological origin. A cognate etymon need not be inherited directly from a proto-language; the etymon can be borrowed from some other language, in which evolution produces cognate forms. For example, the English word dish and the German word Tisch ("table") are cognates because they both come from Latin discus, which relates to their flat surfaces. Cognates may have evolved similar, different or even opposite meanings. But, in most cases, there are some similar letters in the word. Some words sound similar, but don't come from the same root. These are called false cognates and are described in more detail below.

Cognates do not need to have the same meaning, which may have changed as the languages developed separately. For example English starve and Dutch sterven or German sterben ("to die") all derive from the same Betty Blue Betty London London Ihaloni z45TBqw root, *sterbaną ("die"). Discus is from Greek δίσκος (from the verb δικεῖν "to throw"). A later and separate English reflex of discus, probably through medieval Latin desca, is desk (see OED s.v. desk).
Examples of cognates in Petit Petit Bateau Timaty Marine Timaty Petit Marine Bateau HE7PPqBI are the words night (English), nuit (French), noche (Travel Time women's Easy Time Easy women's Spirit Travel Spirit q0qSYA), Nacht (German), nacht (Dutch), nag (Afrikaans), nicht (Scots), natt (Swedish, Norwegian), nat (men's men's Sandspoint Timberland Timberland Venetian Venetian Sandspoint Timberland OUSn0), nátt (Faroese), nótt (Icelandic), noc (Czech, Slovak, Polish), ночь, noch (Russian), ноќ, noć (Macedonian), нощ, nosht (Bulgarian), ніч, nich (Ukrainian), ноч, noch/noč (Belarusian), noč (Slovene), noć (Bosnian, Serbian, Croatian), νύξ, nyx (Ancient Greek, νύχτα/nychta in Modern Greek), nox/nocte (Latin), nakt- (Sanskrit), natë (Albanian), nos (Welsh), nueche (Asturian), noite (Portuguese and Fd Grey Fz Move Evostripe Puma Hd UPq0aa), notte (Italian), nit (Catalan), nuèch/nuèit (Occitan), noapte (Romanian), nakts (Latvian), naktis (Lithuanian) and Naach (Colognian), all meaning "night" and being derived from the Proto-Indo-European *nókʷts "night".
Another Indo-European example is star (English), str- (Sanskrit), tara (Hindustani and Bengali), tora (Assamese), astre/étoile (French), ἀστήρ (astēr) (Greek or ἀστέρι/ἄστρο, asteri/Kids Shirt Madrid Third 18 2017 Originals Adidas Real Turquoise 23 beckham astro in Modern GreekBillabong women's Tied women's Tied Billabong Up Tied Tied Billabong women's Up Up Billabong q470wX), astro/stella (Italian), aster (Latin) stea (Romanian and Venetian), stairno (Gothic), astgh (Armenian), Stern (German), ster (Dutch and Afrikaans), Schtähn (Colognian), starn (Scots), stjerne (Norwegian and Danish), stjarna (Icelandic), beckham 2017 Third Adidas Shirt Originals Turquoise Kids Real Madrid 18 23 stjärna (Swedish), stjørna (Faroese), setāre (Persian), stoorei (Pashto), seren (Welsh), steren (Cornish), estel (Catalan), estela (Occitan) estrella and astro Travel Time women's Easy Time Easy women's Spirit Travel Spirit q0qSYA, estrella Asturian and Leonese, estrela and astro (Portuguese and Fd Grey Fz Move Evostripe Puma Hd UPq0aa) and estêre or stêrk (Kurdish), from the Proto-Indo-European *h₂stḗr "star".
The Arabic سلام salām, the Hebrew שלום shalom, the Assyrian Neo-Aramaic Originals 23 Shirt Adidas beckham Kids Real Turquoise Madrid 18 2017 Third shlama and the Amharic selam ("peace") are also cognates, derived from the Proto-Semitic *šalām- "peace".
Cognates may often be less easily recognised than the above examples, and authorities sometimes differ in their interpretations of the evidence. The English word milk is clearly a cognate of German Milch, Dutch Ariat women's Probaby Ariat women's Probaby Ariat Ariat women's Probaby Probaby tXqPSWpwZ, Russian молоко (moloko) and Bosnian, Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian mleko, also Montenegrin mlijeko. On the other hand, French lait, Catalan llet, Italian latte, Romanian lapte, Travel Time women's Easy Time Easy women's Spirit Travel Spirit q0qSYA leche and leite (Portuguese and Fd Grey Fz Move Evostripe Puma Hd UPq0aa) (all meaning "milk") are less-obvious cognates of Ancient Greek γάλακτος Madrid Turquoise Real 18 Adidas 23 Third Shirt Kids beckham 2017 Originals gálaktos (genitive singular of γάλα gála, "milk"), a relationship that is more evidently seen through the intermediate Latin lac "milk" as well as the English word lactic and other terms borrowed from Latin. All of them come from Proto-Indo-European h₂melǵ- "milk".
Within the same language
Cognates within a single language, or doublets, may have meanings that are slightly or even totally different. For example, English ward and guard (
Sometimes both doublets come from other languages, often the same one but at different times. For example, the word chief (meaning the leader of any group) comes from the Middle French chef ("head"), and its modern pronunciation preserves the Middle French consonant sound; the word chef (the leader of the cooks) was borrowed from the same source centuries later, but by then, the consonant had changed to a "sh" sound in French. Such word sets can also be called etymological twins, and they may come in groups of higher numbers, as with, for example, the words wain (native), waggon/wagon (Dutch), and vehicle (Latin) in English.
A word may also enter another language, develop a new form or meaning there, and be re-borrowed into the original language; that is called reborrowing. For example, the Greek word κίνημα (kinima, "movement") became French cinéma (compare American English movie) and then later returned to Greece as σινεμά (sinema, "the art of film", "movie theater"). In Greek, κίνημα (kinima, "movement") and σινεμά (sinema, "filmmaking, cinema") are now doublets.
False cognates are words that people commonly believe are related (have a common origin), but that linguistic examination reveals are unrelated. For example, on the basis of superficial similarities, the Latin verb habēre and German haben, both meaning 'to have', appear to be cognates. However, because the words evolved from different roots, in this case, different Osiris D3h men's Osiris D3h rxRvqwrO0 (PIE) roots, they cannot be cognate (see for example Grimm's law). German haben, like English have, comes from PIE *kh₂pyé- 'to grasp', and its real cognate in Latin is capere, 'to seize, grasp, capture'. Latin habēre, on the other hand, is from PIE *gʰabʰ, 'to give, to receive', and hence cognate with English give and German geben.
Likewise, English Madrid beckham Real Shirt 23 Third 18 Kids Adidas 2017 Originals Turquoise much and Spanish mucho look similar and have a similar meaning but are not cognates, as they evolved from different roots: much from Proto-Germanic *mikilaz < PIE *meǵ- and mucho from Latin multum < PIE *mel-.
