A Bibliography of English Etymology

A broadly conceptualized reference tool that provides source materials for etymological research. For each word’s etymology, there is a bibliographic entry that lists the word origin’s primary sources, specifically, where it was first found in use. Featuring the history of more than 13,000 English words, their cognates, and their foreign etymons, this is a full-fledged compendium of resources indispensable to any scholar of word origins.
