The wrong idea here is that you suppose IE *more is the same
radical for the greek Thellata.
You even spocked about milk. And normaly you have to think
about the foam of milk. And again , normaly, the waves make
foam, just like milk.
In this case it is very posible to be a connection about " the
water which makes foam like milk" and milk. Of course this is
a very unortodoxe explantion, but
a link can be made that way.
