wring off or pinch off
Old English meolc or melkis
traced to Indo-European root melg (to press out, to milk). So we need a verb for
getting MILK, not a noun for the liquid/
מלק MaLaQ is defined as "to wring off" and is translated
in Leviticus1:15 as "to pinch off." Both the
progressive pressing of the sacrificial bird's neck and the MILKING of a cow's
udders require similar action.
MILCH and MILCHIG
(Germanic) are cognates as surely as Russian malako is. LACTATE, LACTO-
and LETTUCE are listed too, coming to English from Latin lac (milk).
Reversing lac, one can hear Greek gala (milk) - which is also
listed at Indo-European root melg as a cognate. Both the LACTIC and GALACTIC
words may be better linked to חלב K[H]aL aBH (milk see GALAXY).
Another guttural-L word to consider is עול GHOOL (to give
milk, MILCH kine (I Samuel 6:7).
Throughout Germanic and Slavic, MILK words remain
recognizable. Examples include German Milch, Dutch melk (RW), Swedish mjolk
and Polish mleko..
another cognate of MILK that prefers the ML of MLK, not the LK. Another ML term
relevant to the action of milking is MaLaL (to rub, squeeze).
CLABBER (thickly curdled milk)begins with Irishbainne
(milk). This BN milk term should come from LaBHaN (white see ALBINO),
which also contains the Lamed-Bhet or L-BH heart of חלב [K]HaLaBH
(milk). Laban in Arabic means milk, and Finnish luu (milk) might
also be an L-BH milk-white word.
as a "white" word, recalls the other BONNY (Scottish for pretty) and
the blond-means-fair-thus beautiful equation. BONNY has no known origin, but
Europeans associate "white" with "good" and
"dark" or "black" with "evil." Perhaps a BONUS,
BONANZA or BON BON are "good" words (Latin bonus is good) for
the same reason that BONE (only in Germanic) is a BN word - they come from
(Lamed)-B et-Noon (white).
Leviticus 1:15 והקריבו הכהן אל־המזבח ומלק את־ראשׁו והקטיר המזבחה ונמצה דמו על קיר המזבח׃
And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and pinch off its head, and make it smoke on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be drained out on the side of the altar.
