Principal Sources

  • Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology (Ed. C.T. Onions)
  • Oxford English Dictionary
  • Online Etymology Dictionary (Ed. Douglas Harper)
  • Walter W. Skeat’s An Etymological Dictionary of the English Language
  • Ernest Weekely’s An Etymological Dictionary of Modern English
  • Joseph E. Shipley’s The Origin of English Words
  • Ibid., Dictionary of Word Origins
  • Eric Partridge’s A Short Etymological Dictionary of Modern English
