SUMMARY

Etymology is that branch of historical linguistics which studies the history and origin of words, usually presenting its results in dictionary shape. The enduring popular demand for etymological dictionaries has demonstrated the social relevance of this branch of linguistics. The present volume concerns the etymology of the Modern Germanic languages of Western Europe: Dutch, German, English and Frisian. "Current Trends reports on recently completed etymological dictionaries or on such projects in progress. The contributors communicate their experiences in tackling the problems they encountered both in their researches and in shaping their findings. As a result, the volume offers a blend of theoretical and practical approaches to etymological lexicography which makes stimulating reading for university courses in etymology, as many of the problems signalled for one language also apply to other ones. Simultaneously, the book offers the specialist the opportunity to keep abreast of the advances made over the past ten years. Contributors: Dutch: Willy Pijnenburg, Rolf H. Bremmer Jr, Arend Quak, Marlies Philippa, and Edgar C. Polomi. German: Rolf Hiersche, Wolfgang Pfeifer, Willy Sanders, and Elmar Seebold. English: Terry F. Hoad and Anatoly Liberman. Frisian: Klaas F. van der Veen.Bremmer, Rolf H., Jr. is the author of 'Current Trends in West Germanic Etymological Lexicography Proceedings of the Symposium Held in Amsterdam, 12-13 June 1989' with ISBN 9789004097087 and ISBN 9004097082.
