of coincidence, isn't it surprising how much mileage I can get out of

100 Malgasy words and found several intriguing matches between
Malagasy and Russian. Here are the most suggestive ones:
> Mal. vorona 'bird' : Russ. vorona 'crow'
> Mal. volo 'hair', Russ volos 'hair'
> Mal. riaka 'current', Russ. r'eka 'river'
> Mal. zato 'hundred', Russ. sto 'hundred'
> Mal. fasika 'sand' : Russ. p'esok 'sand'
> Mal. feno 'full' : Russ. polno 'full'
> Mal. eto 'here' : Russ. eto 'this'
