"BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: ANNOUNCING THE NEW AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY
OF INDO-EUROPEAN ROOTS Second Edition Revised and edited by Calvert Watkins"
I thought that I should mention (for all you Semitophiles out there) that
the 4th edition of the American Heritage Dictionary has a *second* appendix
(in addition to Watkins' appendix on Indo-European roots) listing Semitic
roots in English. While it is much smaller than the Indo-European appendix
(big surprise there), it is quite thorough and rather eye-opening.
I highly recommend it ;) I thought that I should plug it because it was
written by my advisor (and no, he's not holding a gun to my head - I swear).
If you'd like to see the material without buying the dictionary, just go
and knock yourself out.
