Etymology of milk

Posted by Johannes on 28 March 2010

Origin of milk

The word milk comes from the Latin verb mulgeo (to milk), which is a transliteration of the the Greek verb amelgo (to milk, to draw; αμέλγω).



From the same root:
milk (Eng) & Milche (Ger)



In Romeika (modern Greek, the language of Romei/Romans/Ρωμηοί):
a) armego: to milk [αρμέγω]


Το αγγλικό MILK (γάλα), όπως και το γερμανικό αντίστοιχο Milche (γάλα) προέρχεται από το ρήμα αμέλγω, δηλαδή αρμέγω.
