DLD has been updated!

The Database of Latin Dictionaries has been updated and now also contains the Romanisches etymologisches Wörterbuch (REW) by Wilhelm Meyer-Lübke (Heidelberg, 1935).

The REW is an essential tool for scholars who want to discover the way in which Latin words have survived up to the present day in the Romance languages. Despite its age, the REW remains a fundamental reference work for Romance linguists, as well as for scholars of Late Antique and Medieval Latin. The electronic version is based on the third and last edition, published a year before Meyer-Lübke’s death, and includes the addenda and corrigenda which can be found in the appendix.
