Roots

There is no attempt to link TOO with ADD or TWO. The given etymon for TOO (in addition) and the preposition TO is a theoretical root de (base of prepositions and adverbs). This Indo-European “root” has only one other adverb or preposition with a D or T listed.

Like English TOO, Aramaic Tahf-Vav, TOO, means "further" "more" or "again."


Branches

Aramaic DOO is two. Reversing the dental-vowel, we can see  [O]aD, "more" or "further" – see ADD.  T'OA(M) is a twin.

Do means "same" in Japanese; TOO is t'ai in Chinese, and taai in Cantonese. Doo-ay is TOO or "also" in Thai. Da is "also" in Turkish.

See ADD and DUO
