Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology

Liberman, Anatoly. An Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2008.

Detailed analysis of 55 words of previously “unknown” etymology. The book thoroughly explores the etymology and scholarly history of that etymology for each word. It’s more valuable for the explication of the etymological process than for the scope of words covered.
