Example text

The present book, a showcase of the entire project, contains words of various origins. Brain, clover, and ivy are West Germanic. Beacon is also West Germanic, but OI bákn, even if it is a borrowing from Old English, requires special attention. Dwarf has cognates all over the Germanic speaking world. The entries on clover, ivy, beacon, and dwarf demonstrate the treatment of the less isolated words of English. Man has cognates in Indo-Iranian and Slavic. Words with broad Indo-European connections, such as kin terms and ancient numerals, have not been included.

For instance, F hache, known since the 13th century, Ital azza, and their Romance cognates were borrowed from Gmc (Franconian) *happia (OHG happa, heppa, happia, hebba; see Hippe ‘pruning knife; death’s scythe’ in KM and KS); Frings (1943:178) sets up *happja as the protoform. FEW (XVI:147) and all modern etymological dictionaries of the Romance languages take the change of -ppto other stops for granted; see also hatchet and the verbs hack, hash, and hatch in Lund (1935:114/3) and in dictionaries of English and Hacke in dictionaries of German.

This is especially true of the earliest samples, but even the latest ones are in many respects new. References to their initial versions are of historical interest only: all those contributions have been “canceled” by the present publication. The idea of the dictionary gained the support of several eminent scholars. Hans Aarsleff, Ernst A. P. Lehmann, Albert L. Lloyd, and Edgar C. Polomé read twentythree etymologies (this was years ago), and their approval of the format and the content of those early enteries was of inestimable importance.
