2.0 out of 5 stars Very incomplete, 3 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Barnhart Concise Dictionary of Etymology (Hardcover)
This book rearely traces words back to their origin. It stops too soon, short of revealing the original roots. Most of the words are traced up to Old English or the Middle ages, leaving a sense of wonder as to the author's intentions in writing an etymological dictionary. I really wish I could return it. Unfortunatelly most of the really good such works were initially published in the late 1800's or early 1900's and have been out of print for a very long time.
