Linguists do not think so. They place it in a different family altogether. But I recognize many native Finnish words in English and French, which are Indo-European. huone, huono = home, homely kuka, -kö, -ko = who, what, which; Fr. qui, que, quoi tuoli, istua = stool, sit luulla = to be deluded leipä = loaf minun = me, my, mine he, heidän = they, them, their, theirs hän = he, she seitsemän = seven vaimo = wife, woman meri = maritime, marine There are many more, but I fear to include words that are either not native Finnish or not true cognates.
