Roots

Old French tete is the given etymon for TEAT, the protuberance on a breast or UDDER. Although T and D are officially interchangeable, Latin uber (udder) is cited as a source for UDDER. The double dental (D or T) etymon for TEAT and UDDER is DahD (breast, nipple - Ezekiel23:8; Proverbs5:19).

Dental (D,T) shifts make it easy for double-T words to come from double-Dalet words – see tata from DAD.

The AHD would have UDDER drawn from an Indo-European “root” euedh (udder), which allegedly gave Latin uber  (breast)


Branches

TITILLATE and KITTLE are cognates at the Indo-European “root” tit (to tickle...expressive root – see “TITILATE.”). TICKLE should be related – see   TOOTS. Baby mammals TITILLATE to receive mother's milk.

A TITTLE is a DOT; both may be related to Norwegian titta (little girl), to DAUGHTER (from Sanskrit duhitar), to TOT (small child, perhaps the sense was "suckling") and to the little TITMOUSE. Doot is to suck in Thai; dada is a breast in Indonesian.  French tetine is a nipple.

The double-dental TEAT term suckled many food receptacles. Here are some found by Uber Edenicist Fernando Aedo (dialects I n parentheses):
