Etymons of English Words free pdf Excerpt from Etymons of English Words The object, in the following Work, is to trace the descent of English words- their affinity with the different dialects of Gothic spoken in Europe- and the connexion between our own and some other tongues both of Europe and Asia, without introducing any remarks where the general meaning is obvious. Evident derivations from the Latin and Greek are often omit, ted, because sufficiently understood by all literary persons. Gothic words from five dialects of that language are introduced as concurrent etymons- to which the Russian and Irish vocabularies, in the proportion of at least one third, bear evident affinity, either by cognation or adoption- although so much disguised, by a different orthography, that they could not be usefully added without explanations too diffuse for the present object The plan, as the reader will observe, is studiously concise- being intended rather as an Index than a Glossary. The cursory observer will find it sufficient for his purpose- and those who are inclined to deeper research must apply to the under-mentioned sources of information. The Index of Vereleus contains nearly all the Gothic roots employed in English- and an improved arrangement of that valuable record, with considerable additions, has been prepared for publication. The Glossaries of Ihre, of Schertz and Oberlin, the Thesaurus of Hickes, and the Dictionary of Lye, exhibit the variations that occur in the Swedish, Teutonic- M so-Gothic and Anglo-Saxon dialects- and to them the inquisitive reader must have reference. He will do well to consult also the Scottish Etymology of Dr Jamieson. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
