Abstract:

Latin is one of the major ancient Indo-European languages and one of the
cornerstones of Indo-European studies. Since the last comprehensive
etymological dictionary of Latin appeared in 1959, enormous progress has
been made in the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European, and many
etymologies have been revised. This new etymological dictionary covers the
entire Latin lexicon of Indo-European origin. It consists of nearly 1900
entries, which altogether discuss about 8000 Latin lemmata. All words
attested before Cicero are included, together with their first date of
attestation in Latin. The dictionary also includes all the inherited words
found in the other ancient Italic languages, such as Oscan, Umbrian and
South Picene; thus, it also serves as an etymological dictionary of Italic.

<b>About the author</b>
<b>Michiel de Vaan</b> (Ph.D. 2002) teaches comparative Indo-European
linguistics, historical linguistics and dialectology at Leiden University.
He has published extensively on Germanic, Albanian, and Indo-Iranian
linguistics and philology, including <i>The Avestan Vowels</i> (2003) and
<i>Germanic Tone Accents</i> (ed., 2006).

<b>Readership</b>
All those interested in the history of Latin & the other ancient Italic
languages, scholars of comparative Indo-European linguistics, Romance
linguistics and historical linguistics.

<b>Keywords</b>
