No In Ten Languages

In the spirit of Joe C.'s post a couple of days ago, I decided to give this one a whirl. Let's see what I can get off the top of my head. Chime in if you have any more.

English: No
Spanish: No
Italian: No
Portuguese: Nom
French: Non
German: Nein
Greek: Akhee (Aw-hee)
Russian: Nyet
Arabic: Laa
Farsi: Na

Bonus (I worked with a Serbian-American student over the summer, this is for Mr. K):

Serbian: Net

You notice the similarities between a lot of these. With the exception of Arabic, all of these languages are Indo-European. Neat!
