Germanic is one of the best studied branches of the Indo-European language family. This new etymological dictionary offers a wealth of material collected from both old and new Germanic languages, ranging from Gothic to Modern Faroese, from Old English to the Swiss dialects. It covers the largest part of the Proto-Germanic lexicon, containing around 7,000 lexemes. A large number of words for the first time receive an Indo-European reconstruction, and, as a result, the dictionary offers a full implementation of the laryngeal theory. Special focus is further put on the internal evolution of Germanic morphology and its consequences for the study of Germanic etymology.
