Written By: Rick Derksen
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=24850
Series Title: Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary Series, 4
Description:

This latest dictionary in the Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary
Series systematically and exhaustively deals with the Slavic inherited
lexicon. It is unique in combining recent insights from the field of
comparative Indo-European linguistics with modern Balto-Slavic accentology.
In addition, the author makes an explicit attempt at reconstructing part of
the Balto-Slavic lexicon.

The lemmata of the dictionary are alphabetically arranged Proto-Slavic
etyma. Each lemma consists of a number of fields which contain the
evidence, reconstructions and notes. The introduction explains the contents
and the significance of the individual fields. Here the reader can also
find information on the various sources of the material. The volume
concludes with an extensive bibilography of sources and secondary
literature, and a word index.

Readership:
Indo-Europeanists as well as anyone interested in Slavic historical
linguistics or etymological studies in general.
