|Subject:||Basque words in English|
I noticed today whilst studying that the Basque word for measurement of 0.0254m is Ontza. It cannot be coincidence that this is the same as the Inch in English. The word Pintxos is a ''Pintch'' of food. Both are using the common sound ending ''intch''sound
So which language borrowed from which?
