List of reference sources for English etymology

Post by Erik_Kowal » Fri Jan 27, 2006 8:27 am

I have found what seems like a very useful and comprehensive list of reference sources on all manner of matters pertaining to the English language and its history at Etymological & Languages Sources & Links . It covers both print and online reference sources, and is part of the http://www.wordorigins.org website operated by Dave Wilton.
