That's a very cool coincidence indeed.
Whereas in Malayalam, [eːj] with a low falling pitch seems to mean something more like 'nah'.
I guess that would make it at least close to being a true friend with: ei
- no, not, 3SG.NEG ei
- no, not ei
- not, 3.NEG (not sure whether it can mean 'no' or not) ei
- not ei
- not (although note that this one is apparently pronounced [aj] whereas I think all the others are [ej])
Is <ei> pronounced [ej] in Ladin, too?
