Summary

This dictionary offers up-to-date and often novel etymological accounts for the basic lexicon of Modern Lithuanian. Building on the achievements of earlier etymological research but fully exploiting the new insights afforded by the current paradigm of Indo-European reconstruction, this dictionary presents numerous items of the dialectal, Old Lithuanian and borrowed vocabulary. The author shows the workings of historical derivational morphology, highlighting the importance of analogy, reanalysis and innovative ablaut derivation. He covers alternative proposals and exhaustive bibliographical references for this tool of research and study in Lithuanian, Baltic and Indo-European etymology.
