Well... there may be some Slavic ("liod" is sort of the phonetic spelling
for 'ice' in Russian), Germanic ("rot" is 'red' in German), Albanian ("tand"
is the Northern Albanian [Geg] word for the 2nd person singular masculine
possessive pronoun 'your' [lit. 'thy'], as well as the word for 'arbor'; and
"tyta" means 'the barrel'), and Indo-Iranic: the "words" beginning with 'sr'
and 'rt'. Ancient Greek has the cluster 'rh' in quite a few words, as does
Welsh. "Tala" means 'beam' in Estonian (a Uralic language), and "taha" has a
number of meanings in Malagasy (a Malayo-Polynesian language). I'm sure this
doesn't help, but you asked...

Best wishes.
