Gerhard Köbler seems to be obsessed with dictionaries. He composed quite many useful resources that I used for my Þrjótrunn and Terkunan projects, e.g. Latin, Proto-Germanic, and Old Norse etymological dictionaries. I cannot remember to have noticed contradictions with other dictionaries when I used his pdfs, so I think the sources are trustworthy. But I'd also be interested if anyone else has experience with his work. And frankly, I have no idea how he manages to produce this amount of dictionary entries during one lifetime. Apart from the etymological ones, he has dictionaries for special juridical terms in I don't know how many languages (IIRC, he is a professor of law). I definitely think it is worth digging a little deeper on his site. **Henrik
