You might find Part II of Metzger's "Lexical Aids for Students of NT
Greek" helpful. He groups words by root, with a brief summary of
linguistic stuff. There is also an Appendix about language families and
how things interact which might be interesting. There are a few other
appendices with interesting stuff, too. Complete bibliographical info:
