Why it's so misleading
It's not misleading, that would imply that the evolution of languages had the sole purpose of deceiving you. It's just due to the fact that they are totally different languages, not even part of the same family. I myself wonder while learning Polish why there is absolutely no recognisable word (except the load-words) in Polish.
M-G (it's all one big set-up!)
Edit: the part of the not recognisable words is not entirely true, I just figured. When I try to learn Polish with my own native language, Dutch, as basis, I find that there ARE some recognisable words: one simple example is Szukaj, the Polish word for search. In Dutch that would be Zoek. The combination oe is in Dutch pronounced like a Polish U. With a little imagination you can figure out what Szukaj means without using a dictionairy.
