Some of these English posts get translated to French and Spanish by the great Peruvian Edenicist in Geneva, Fernando Aedo.
This time, I followed HIS lead.
ROOTS: Falling short once again, the best our dictionary can offer for TALL (high in stature) is Middle English tal (dexterous, seemly) and Anglo-Saxon getoel (swift, prompt).
Without Edenics and its vast proof ofreversible words there is no reason why ALTO (tall) is TL reversed. The Italian musical term means "high" not, tall, but you will see much proof here that dental-liquid or liquid-dental is the sound of height.
תלול TaLOOL is "towering" in the "tall towering mountain" of Ezekiel17:22.
תל TahL is a height, hill or heap (Deuteronomy13:17).
תל אביבTel Aviv means "the hill of spring." The archeological mounds left from ancient cities are a תל TaiL, TEL in English.
The TL built-in opposite of a tall or heaped-up mound is תלםTeLeM (furrow – Psalms 65:11). More of these later, with the other tooth-made dental: D.
Arabic often reads a vowel-Vav as a consonant (Dawoud, not David), and their תלול TaLOOL (tall) is tawil.
BRANCHES:A Hindi hill is a teela. A mountain in Cherokee (Amerind) is a-ta-li.
More Amerind and Dravidian in the chart below.
TheATLAS mountains are tall, if taller than a hill (see ATLAS”).TALMI is a giant in Numbers 13:22 and Joshua 15:14. Reverse TL for Latin altus (high) or alta (tall), source of ALTITUDE as well as ALTO. Spanish has alto (tall) and words like altivo (haughty).
ALTAR is a raised religious structure. דלה DaLaH (hanging down -- see "TAIL", דל DahL (humbled, lowly -- see "DILUTE") and ירדYaRadD (to go down – see “ROOT” ) are related dental-liquid antonyms.
Placenames like the ATLAS mountains or ITALY reflect this topographical TALLNESS.Dohl and tol are the words for mountain in the two dialects of Marshalese, from the Micronesian group of the Austronesian languages.
Speaking of Polynesia, an ATOLL is from atolu in Divehi (Indo-Aryan language of the Maldives).An ATOLL is a hill or heap , aתל TahL, of coral in shallow water that is so TALLas to make up a small island.
TUMULUS (from Latin, meaning "hill") belongs with T-M growths at "SUMAC;" but if the M is nonhistoric, it should join the T-L hills here at "TALL."A hill in the W. Camilaroi language of Australia is thuyul. (RW)
Many Germanic "tall" words are cognates of "high."Slavic "tall" words appear to be variants of פסגהPi$GaH (peak, summit, mountaintop), see "HIGH." Finnish "tall" changesPi$GaH to pitka. The "peak" explains why Estonian pikkis "tall." See "PEAK."
The Indo-European dental-liquid or liquid-dental TALL words below are mostly from Regina Werling. The Amerind and Dravidian are from Fernando Aedo.
FA had many more. When we have enough data to prove that
dentals shift to S in Dravidia, there will be tall mountain of new
evidence. ------------------------------- Maybe YOU have some words that you'd like to find, and have appear in the dictionary that will turn solitary, evolved hominds mankind into related children of Adam and Eve.
