Erotas (Greek)
Muhabbat (Uzbek)

Also similar to the Kazakh word (Mahabbat). - Alkadikce

Also interesting how kérlek in Hungarian (although pronounced in a much different way) means please - Alkadikce

Szerelem (Hungarian)

Just like Greek, my language always distinguishes between romantic relationships (this word) and every other form of love (szeretet).

Although it's funny how szerelem also means (I) am repairing. - Alkadikce

Pagmamahal (Filipino)

It could be "mahal" too. But that could also mean "expensive". - Misfire

The Contenders
