Radicals and meanings a la Dwarvish

Hello all, I was just wondering...
I was hoping to include some sort of process in my
conlang from which words could be formed from and hint
at their own meaning. I toyed around with something
like, for example:
so nt-v-l = long magic piece of wood = staff
and nt-v-r = long living piece of wood = tree
now lets assume that:
a-a basic meaning
ntaval = a staff
ntuvel = staff-man
ntivel = staff-place
ntavar = a tree
ntuver = tree-man
ntiver = tree-place = forest?
Tolkien's Dwarvish has this to some extent, and
I've heard that Arabic has something like this but I
don't know anything about it...
