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 there is no reason why ALTO (tall) is TL reversed.

תלול TaLOOL is "towering" in the "tall towering mountain" of Ezekiel17:22. TaL is a height, hill or heap (Deuteronomy13:17).   תל אביב Tel 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 moud is    תלם TeLeM (furrow – Psalms 65:11).

TALL in Arabic is tawil. The reverse TL for Latin altus (high), source of ALTITUDE and ALTO, appears in Spanish alto (tall) and words like altivo (haughty).  ALTAR is a raised religious structure.  DahL (low, lowly) and (Ya)RadD (to go down – see ROOT ) are related antonyms.
