Item description for Old Frisian Etymological Dictionary (Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary) by Dirk Boutkan & Sjoerd Michiel Siebenga...

Due to the lack of lexicographical tools, Old Frisian cognates are rarely included in current etymological dictionaries of Germanic and Indo-European, despite the fact that Old Frisian can often provide important clues for the reconstruction. At the same time, it is difficult for the students of Old Frisian to acquire knowledge of the linguistic prehistory of this language.

With this first etymological dictionary of Old Frisian based on the lexicon of Riustring 1 manuscript, Old Frisian becomes accessible to a wide circle of scholars of Germanic and Indo-European. The latest insights of Comparative Indo-European Linguistics have been systematically incorporated. The lemmata are provided with a meticulous analysis of Old Frisian dialectal forms, with Proto-Frisian reconstructions, and with a wealth of Germanic and Indo- European cognates.

Boutkan's and Siebinga's work will prove to be an indispensable research tool for the study of Old Frisian, of Germanic languages, and of Proto-Indo- European.

Reviews - What do customers think about Old Frisian Etymological Dictionary (Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary)?

A Major Addition to Germanic Resources  Jul 14, 2007
This is a major addition to the corpus of work on Germanic languages. Old Frisian has been long neglected in Germanic studies, but this work will help to fill that gap in our knowledge. It deserves to be placed alongside Lehmann's (1984) "A Gothic Etymological Dictionary" as a major resource for not just the language in question, but for its place within Germanic and Indo-European as well. Each entry includes the reconstructed Proto-Frisian form, Germanic cognates, Proto-Germanic form, Proto-Indo-European form, and Indo-European cognates. The cognate lists include not just the expected primary roots, but appropriate derivational forms as well. The amount of data in this work is truly impressive. But equally impressive is the clear and unambiguous formatting. It is always clear what you are looking at and it is easy to find simple information quickly and easily. This is a truly wonderful reference to a long-ignored Old Germanic language.
