Item description for Albanian Etymological Dictionary by Vladimir E. Orel...

This volume is a new compendium of Albanian etymology tracing thousands of modern Albanian words back to their origins. It contains detailed information on the Indo-European vocabulary preserved in Albanian as well as on numerous loanwords coming from ancient Greek, Latin, early Romance and Slavic.

The ancient elements of the Albanian vocabulary are used for the reconstruction of their Proto-Albanian origin and then compared with their Indo-European parallels. The history of Indo-European words and of early loanwords in Albanian shows the history and culture of the Albanian people reflected in the etymology of the Albanian language.

The book also includes a short sketch of Albanian historical phonetics and a vast bibliography. Every entry is extensively documented and contains earlier etymological explanations and interpretations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Albanian Etymological Dictionary?

very expensive, many important words missing  Mar 18, 2007
An etymological dictionary in English and in a rather rarely used language is a treat for those who need it. Such work very much helps the learner to remember better words that on the surface make no sense by looking up their etymology. However, it disappointed me because many common words are missing, like all words that came into Albanian through Turkish. (the author refers the reader to other dictionaries!) An equally big problem is the price, $309 at this site, but it can be bought from the UK for 'only' $146. It is unfortunate that this resource is so expensive. The other books of this author are also extremely expensive.
