Abstract:

Traditionally, etymology is concerned with the study of lexical items.
However, in this book etymology is understood more generally as a research
approach concerned with the question of how a particular word or structure
came into existence. As a result, etymology can investigate the origin of
words (lexical etymology) but also structural elements, such as morphemes and
constructions (structural etymology). This pioneer volume assembles thirteen
etymological studies over a broad range of languages, ranging from Europe to
Australia and the Pacific, focusing in particular on Australian Indigenous
languages. The phenomena investigated in the contributions comprise the origin
of Australian Indigenous place names and kinship terms, constructions and word
histories in Oceanic languages, typological investigations as well as papers
on the methodology of etymological research. This volume is intended for a
scholarly audience including intermediate and advanced university students
with an interest in historical linguistic, especially in etymology, but also
semantics, toponymy and language contact.
