hmmm. that sounds interesting. I am thinking at rom. "child"= copil for
feminine = copilã.
That seems to be a relation there but I have no ideea what should look
for this "co" before.
We have Latin filius= fiu, latin pullus , and this substrate word
co+pilul ( with article).
If there shouldnt be this "co" I would say they are cognate, but this
"co" is pretty disturbing.
