Title: Etymological Dictionary of Proto-Celtic
Written By: Ranko Matasović
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=24854
Series Title: Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary Series, 9
Description:

This is the first etymological dictionary of Proto-Celtic to be published
after a hundred years, synthesizing the work of several generations of
Celtic scholars. It contains a reconstructed lexicon of Proto-Celtic with
ca. 1500 entries. The principal lemmata are alphabetically arranged words
reconstructed for Proto-Celtic. Each lemma contains the reflexes of the
Proto-Celtic words in the individual Celtic languages, the
Proto-Indo-European (PIE) roots from which they developed, as well as the
cognate forms from other Indo-European languages. The focus is on the
development of forms from PIE to Proto-Celtic, but histories of individual
words are explained in detail, and each lemma is accompanied by an
extensive bibliography. The introduction contains an overview of the
phonological developments from PIE to Proto-Celtic, and the volume includes
an appendix treating the probable loanwords from unknown non-IE substrates
in Proto-Celtic.

Readership
Celtic and Indo-European scholars, linguists interested in etymology and
problems of linguistic reconstruction.
