Title: Old Frisian Etymological Dictionary
Written By: Dirk Boutkan
S.M. Siebinga
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=24061
Series Title: Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary Series
Description:

Due to the lack of lexicographical tools, Old Frisian cognates are rarely
included in current etymological dictionaries of Germanic and
Indo-European, despite the fact that Old Frisian can often provide
important clues for the reconstruction. At the same time, it is difficult
for the students of Old Frisian to acquire knowledge of the linguistic
prehistory of this language.

With this first etymological dictionary of Old Frisian based on the lexicon
of Riustring 1 manuscript, Old Frisian becomes accessible to a wide circle
of scholars of Germanic and Indo-European. The latest insights of
Comparative Indo-European Linguistics have been systematically
incorporated. The lemmata are provided with a meticulous analysis of Old
Frisian dialectal forms, with Proto-Frisian reconstructions, and with a
wealth of Germanic and Indo- European cognates.

Boutkan’s and Siebinga’s work will prove to be an indispensable research
tool for the study of Old Frisian, of Germanic languages, and of
Proto-Indo- European.
