    English Historical etymology

    Hello you there,

    Do you know any English Historical Etymology to look up words etymologically? I know etymological dictionaries on the web, but sometimes this is not enough. I would like to know reliable bibliography. Names of good 'updated' european philologists would make it. Thanks!!!

    Re: English Historical etymology

    Do you use the OED? I am not sure exactly what you're looking for, but the serious dictionaries do a good job with etymology and the OED gives historical texts to go with it.
