More Than What I Expected

by rm2013 on Mar 20, 2008

The Concise Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology by Terry F Hoad (Editor), is a small book, about 5x8", 522 pages. For its size it is packed full of words and the etymology of those words. This dictionary provides not only the English word itself, but also the various words from whence the definition came to be. Those ancient words referred to come from Old English, Anglo Saxon, French, Latin and any number of other spoken tongues to which the word was derived. It also covers Stems, Adjectives, Plurals, and many other grammatical requirements. It is a bargain for its cost, and is easy to carry in a briefcase or backpack. I wholeheartedly recommend this volume to anyone who wishes to have a handy reference book for the study of any number of old languages, but also for its valuable information on the origins of English words that we now speak in this Age.
