Linguistic Coincidence: "Brother in Other & Other in Brother". ARABIC vs ENGLISH

Hello Italkians, 

I 'd like to share with you this very interesting linguistic coincidence between Arabic and English.

"One of the linguistic coincidences that I found very interesting is in English we have other in brother. It's important to see the other in brother. In Arabic, you have "آخر" is the word of other, and "آخ" is the word for brother, so in Arabic you see the brother in other, and in English you see the other in brother. I think we need to do both."
