Title: Etymological Dictionary of the Altaic Languages
Written By: S. Starostin
A. Dybo
O. Mudrak
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=11321
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies
Description:

This comparative and etymological dictionary of the more than fifty
languages traditionally classified as Altaic is arguably the most
comprehensive, systematic work as yet on the subject. Subdivided into five
branches: Turkic, Mongolian, Tungus-Manchu, Korean and Japanese, it deals
with the entire Altaic family. The introduction contains a detailed account
of the phonetic correspondences between Altaic languages, as well as their
morphological and lexical characteristics. The body of the dictionary
presents almost 3000 lexical matches between different subgroups of Altaic,
with Proto-Altaic reconstructions and detailed reflexes in ancient and
modern languages. Wherever possible comments are given to distinguish
between inherited vocabulary and various later interlingual borrowings.
With detailed indices for each language. A true reference work of great
importance.
