Someone asked, in another place, if there are any similarities between the Mohegan-Pequot words listed in this article and Northern Unami words. The answer is "Yes." Here are those I see:
kisuq = sky, heaven (M-P) & gischuch = sun, moon, day (NU) [More similar to Munsee, kiishooxkw = sun.]
kon = snow (M-P) & goon = snow (NU)
maci = bad, evil (M-P) & machtschi = bad, evil (NU)
nikoni = first (M-P) & nigani = before, foremost, ahead (NU)
tayosq = bridge (M-P) & tajachquoan = bridge; foot-bridge (NU) [PA theta became S in M-P and CH in NU.]
yopi = again (M-P) & lappi = again (NU) [This shows the Algonquian alternation between Y and L.]
nipun = it is summer (M-P) & nipen = it is summer (NU)
Iyo, wutak nahak nipawiq = Now, stand behind me. (M-P) & Juke, wtenk nhakey nipawik. = Now, stand behind me. (NU)
wuci = of (M-P) & wuntschi = from, of (NU)
Besides these, there are some partial similarities, such as, uqanaqon = rainbow (M-P) & manakquon = rainbow (NU).
Also, there are, undoubtedly, some that would be closer cognates if we traced the history of their phonetic shifts from the original Proto-Algonquian, out of which both languages came.
