Roots

DUO is two in Latin; di is two in Greek.the alleged Indo-European “root” is dwo (two).

The Aramaic דו DOO or DooW means two.  Not Semitic, but one of the most ancient Indo-Aryan tongues, is Avestan. In ancient Persia two was  dva.  In Modern Hebrew  דו שיח   DOO-SeeYaK[H] is a DIALOGUE. To see the IE “root” dwo read the Vav of DOO as a consonant (V,W) instead of a vowel (oo). DooW instead of DOO. The DW number twos may be BeT (#2) reversed (see below). There is an Edenic dental-vowel of duality. See Tahf, Alef-Vav-(Mem), TEoW(M) at TWIN.


Branches

Cognates listed under Indo-European “root” dwo include: All DI-, DIA-, or DIS- words, DEUCE, DEUTERONOMY, DICHOTOMY, DIPLOMA, DOUBLE, DOUBLET, DOUBLOON, DOUBT, DOUBTFUL, DOZEN, DUBIOUS, DUAD, DUPLEX, DUPLICATE, TWELVE, TWENTY, TWICE, TWIG, TWILIGHT, TWILL, TWINE, TWIST, TWO and ZWIEBACK (from German zwie).  See CIRRUS)

Words like TWO and TWAIN are discussed at TEAM and TWIN - from TEoWM or TEWoM (twin - Genesis38:27).      Malay dua (two) is not borrowed fromFrench deux or Italian due. The Kurdish two is du.

DICAST is not another DI-word. It's from Greek dike (right, law, justice) - from  TSeDeQ (righteousness, justice  – see SYNDICATE).

Also losing the initial S might be the Japanese two, ni, from (SHA)NE (second).

DIN OSAUR, DINOTHERE and DIRE, from Indo-European “root” dwei (to fear) are related to Indo-European dwo (two) because the root for fear originally meant "to be in doubt, be of two minds."

Europe’s Dalet-with-Vav-as-vowel terms for 2 include: French deux , Italian due, Portuguese dois ,  Romanian doi and Spanish dos . The Dalet-Vav is a consonant by the time it gets to Czech dve or Polish dwa . A dental shift in heard in German zwei and Dutch  twee (closer to English TWO than to  Danish to  or Korean tu .

Many of the world’s words for two are variants of 1 (see EACH).  Others have the BL root of intertwined or mixed components seen at BALL.  An unusual 2, like Armenian erku, is from AKHeR (other… that is,    unlike the first).  A Chinese twosome (pair or couple) is a duiu X148.  Russian two is dva.

Edenics researcher Joshua Ben (with a focus on Austronesian) posits that the many “two” words sounding like DeW (and this would include the Aramaic etymon) are reversals of Bet (Edenic 2nd letter and no. 2). See EIGHT from Het (#8). DW is merely a shifted TW according to what he coins as “Joshua’s 2nd Law of Edenics”. Some of Josh’s findings include: Sundanese: duwe,Acehnese: duwa, Indonesian: dua, Balinese: dua, Madurese: dua, Sawu: due, Toraja: dua, MALAY: dua, ILOKANO: dua,(Borneo) Apo Duat, E. Kadazan: duBu, S. Halmahera (NW New Guinea/ Kaiwai: wet, SE Maluku/Yamdena: duw. German zwei (two)and tsvei (two) in Yiddish he would see as one of the many TWO words from Zayin-Vav, the second month ( 1 Kings 6:1).
