  • Yes. The Sinhalese (Sinhala language) words are very similar: “pilana” is the same (පීලන), although the word “peleema” (පෙලීම) is more common; “bhara” is “bara” (බර).
  • Languages in that region have similar words with similar meanings. That is why I was able to guess the meanings of the words you used.
