Bibliographical Materials for Afrikaans Etymological Lexicography

  • J Bergerson


Abstract: Afrikaans etymological lexicography has yet to see an analytic dictionary along the lines of Sigmund Feist's Gotisches etymologisches Wörterbuch or Anatoly Liberman's An Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology. Before an analytic dictionary of Afrikaans etymology can be written, a comprehensive bibliography of works and articles on the subject must first be brought together. This collection is a first step towards creating a resource for Afrikaans similar to Liberman's A Bibliography of English Etymology. Keywords: ETYMOLOGY, LEXICOGRAPHY, HISTORICAL LEXICOLOGY, DICTIONARIES, WORD STUDIES, BIBLIOGRAPHY, ANALYTIC, AFRIKAANS, HISTORICAL LINGUISTICS
