Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: From the Preface.

IN the treatment of Phonetics and Morphology in this work, so many words are cited along with parallels and words etymologically connected, that the book may be used to this extent in the study of etymology. To this end the Index of Words has been compiled, including as it does more than mere grammatical forms. I would also observe that I have somewhat departed from the usual methods of such indices, because very few of those who use it will be equally at home in all the languages therein contained, and many may look for words out of a language whose paradigms are not familiar to them.

For the Index of Matters two limitations have been set. If it contained all the processes described, in the same detail as we find in the indices to our periodicals, or in any other conceivable form, not only would this have taken up much space, but what is more to the point, it would have been hardly easier to find one's way about by means of the index than can be done by aid of the very full Table of Contents to Volume I.

I have therefore, with certain few exceptions, excluded the processes of sound change. On the other hand, the idea of giving all the examples of Analogy in all its kinds was given up, chiefly for lack of space. The headings given are those only which tlie student is most likely to look for, such as Popular Etymology, Assimilation of Opposites, and the like. In these last I have had much help from lists of the examples for Analogical Re-formation, given in Vols. I and II, which where compiled by my pupil E. Kleinhans, and very kindly placed at my disposal.
