Title: Etymologisches Wörterbuch der Kartwel-Sprachen
Written By: Heinz Fähnrich
S. Sardshweladse
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=2098
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

The dictionary offers a complete compilation and a historical-comparative
reflection of the hereditary lexis of the Kartvelian (South Caucasian)
language family. It represents the latest stage of etymological research,
contains a wealth of new lexical entries, corrections of earlier attempts
and new reconstructions. The introduction provides a survey of general data
of the four Kartvelian languages (Georgian, Mingrelian, Laz, Svan),
characterizes the historical-comparative research in short and provides a
detailed description of the system of regular phoneme correspondences. The
main chapter presents the Kartvelian lexis in separate entries. The
reconstructed forms of the root- and affix morphemes are listed in
alphabetical order followed by instances of the Kartvelian languages. Each
entry covers the phonological development of the lexical item from its
original form to its present state and is supplemented by references.
