Word origins-- and how we know them : etymology for everyone by Anatoly Liberman ( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If you want to know more about the histories of words than you can find in a dictionary entry or a collection of (often erroneous) etymologies, this is the only book that can help you. A thorough investigation of the history of the science of etymology, Word Origins is the first book to make this arcane endeavor more accessible to the nonspecialist reader."--Jacket
Theory and history of folklore by V. I︠A︡ Propp ( Book )
22 editions published between 1984 and 1997 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book will give Propp's admirers in the English-speakling world a whole new perspective on this distinguished scholar's contribution to folkloristics. Liberman provides the necessary background in terms of Russian/Soviet intellectual (and political) currents to place Propp's work in a new light. No student of structuralism in folklore can afford to miss Liberman's anthology." - Alan Dundes (from cover)
An analytic dictionary of English etymology an introduction by Anatoly Liberman ( )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This work introduces renowned linguistics scholar Anatoly Liberman's comprehensive dictionary and bibliography of the etymology of English words. The English etymological dictionaries published in the past claim to solve the mysteries of word origins even when those origins have been widely disputed." "An Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology, by contrast, discusses all of the existing derivations of English words and chooses the best one. In this inaugural volume, Liberman addresses fifty-five words traditionally dismissed as being of unknown etymology. Some of the entries are among the most commonly used words in English, including man, boy, girl, bird, brain, understand, key, ever, and yet. Others are slang: mooch, nudge, pimp, filch, gawk, and skedaddle. Many, such as beacon, oat, hemlock, ivy, and toad, have existed for centuries, whereas some have appeared more recently - for example, slang, kitty-corner, and Jeep. They are all united by their etymological obscurity." "This unique resource discusses the main problems in the methodology of etymological research and contains indexes of subjects, names, and all of the root words. Each entry is a full-fledged article, shedding light for the first time on the source of some of the most widely disputed word origins in the English language."--BOOK JACKET
