The Comanche word for milk is ma'okwerų or pitsipų. The ų sound is not found in English - it is a bit like pronouncing the vowel u while smiling instead of pursing the lips.

In Natick, the language of the Narragansett and Wampanoag people, milk from an animal is sogkodtunk or sogkodonk; a mother's milk is meninnunk.

Hindi:

दूध = milk
