Roots

The alleged Indo-European “root” medhu means honey and mead (any poor quality wine, including honey wine). Greek methu is a wine word, but not the primary one. Greek  oinos is clearly from יין YaYiN (wine – Genesis 9:24).  

  תמד TeMeD is to make MEAD out of grape skin and dregs, related to Arabic thamad (water remaining in the leather bottle) and Latin temetum (mead). MEAD requires an extract ion from the bottom of the barrel. מיץ MeeYTS means juice or extract (Proverbs 30:33).  The Tsadi as dental easily allows for Greek M-T and Germanic M-D.


Branches

Reversing the DM of MEAD to Dalet-Mem, DahM is translated as juice, extract, wine or blood (Genesis 49:11).  A reversed, Tsadi-Mem antonym (or synonym) is TSaMAy (thirsty, as in dry or squeezed out – (Psalms 69:22).  More at SMALL.

Rendering the Tsadi as an ST, the usual in IE, MeeYTS adds to the roots of MOIST.

Honey words can taste the M-D or T of מתוק   MaTOAQ (sweet – Songs 2:3).    Polish miod and Russian myot are honey. More sweetness at MUSK.     


Bible Verses

Proverbs 30:33 כי מיץ חלב יוציא חמאה ומיץ־אף יוציא דם ומיץ אפים יוציא ריב׃

“For the churning of milk bringeth forth curd, and the wringing of the nose bringeth forth blood; so the forcing of wrath bringeth forth strife.”
