Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------CHAMBERS'S ETYMOLOGICAL DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE: ENLARGED EDITION, Edited by Andrew Findlater, M.A., LL.D. PRONOUNCING--EXPLANATORY--ETYMOLOGICAL How are the words 'door' German 'Tr' and Sanskrit 'dvar' related? When did the word Blarney first appear in print? What's the linguistic history of the word 'history'? The Chambers Etymological Dictionary holds all the answers for any person curious about the origins of the words they use, and how these words have changed over time. This fascinating dictionary explores the development of meaning, spelling, and pronunciation of English words. Detailed entries trace words back to their Proto-Germanic or Indo-European roots, and include words borrowed from other languages, as well as the sources and dates of their first recorded use. For many years academics, wordsmiths, crossword lovers, and language enthusiasts of all stripes have turned to this celebrated volume as their reference of choice in lexical matters. First published as the Barnhart Etymological Dictionary, the Chambers Dictionary of Etymology offers a unique combination of approachability and authoritativeness in an accessible single-volume format, making it an essential etymological resource for the expert, and a fascinating reference for the general reader. This is the softcover stated Chambers Edition from January 1930. Other than a name on the flyleaf and just a hint of wear to the cover, both the cover and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
