American Heritage Dictionary

The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language. Fifth ed. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 2012.

An excellent dictionary of American English that traces words back to their Indo-European roots (not all editions contain the appendix on IE roots). Its chief drawback is length, which is only about 70,000 entries. Online access is available here
