Roots

The TELE- prefix in TELEGRAPH, TELEPHONE (see“PHONE”), TELESCOPE (see SCOPE) and TELEVISION is said to come from Greek tele (far off, at a distance). The given Indo-European “root” is k(w)el (far). Tele is not linked to an Indo-European “root” like tela (to lift, support, weigh) because the original sense of being thrown to a distance or cast from afar was lost.

The "lift" sense of the alleged Indo-European “root” is in נטל NaDTaL (to raise Isaiah 63.-9). Also see ATLAS. הטיל    HeeDTeeYL is to throw  -- Saul “cast” his spear in I Samuel 20:33. The infinitive is    טול DTOOL (to move forward). TELEVISION is a video signal that is thrown or TELECAST from afar, not a "far-off vision" or anything lifted .   טלטול DTeeLDTaiL is to move back and forth (Isaiah22:17);    טיול DTeeYOOL is a far walk or hike.   טיל DTeeYL is now used to mean a projectile, rocket or long-distance missile, just as Latin telum isadart.


Branches

DTiRaY     טרי   (to throw in Aramaic) may be the source for DART and THROW .   מטלטלת M’DTooLDTeLeT is a pendulum. Along with    נטיל NaDTeeYL (laden, burdened), these Hebrew words closely match the "support, weigh" sense of Indo-European “root” tela as well. The cognates listed here include TELAMON (from Greek telamon, bearer), again why TELE- words relate here.  Tal is far in Latvian.  TELE-  words  have spread with technology.
