Title: Albanian Etymological Dictionary
Written By: VladimirEOrel
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=631
Description:

This volume is a new compendium of Albanian etymology tracing thousands of
modern Albanian words back to their origins. It contains detailed
information on the Indo-European vocabulary preserved in Albanian as well
as on numerous loanwords coming from ancient Greek, Latin, early Romance
and Slavic.

The ancient elements of the Albanian vocabulary are used for the
reconstruction of their Proto-Albanian origin and then compared with their
Indo-European parallels. The history of Indo-European words and of early
loanwords in Albanian shows the history and culture of the Albanian people
reflected in the etymology of the Albanian language.

The book also includes a short sketch of Albanian historical phonetics and
a vast bibliography. Every entry is extensively documented and contains
earlier etymological explanations and interpretations.
