The Hittite Etymological Dictionary is a comprehensive compendium of
the vocabulary of Hittite, one of the great languages of the Ancient
Near East, and of paramount importance for comparative Indo-European

Volume 5 of the Hittite Etymological Dictionary puts the total work
past the mid-point of the alphabetical inventory of the Hittite
language. It covers not only words with the initial L, additions and
corrections to the earlier volumes, but also the complete indices to
comparands in other languages, thus opening up volume 1-5 to other
philologies (Indic, Greek, Germanic, etc.).
