Chantraine\s Etymological Greek Dictionary

Post by Stephen Carlson » April 24th, 2014, 6:44 am

Pierre Chantraine's Etymological Greek Dictionary is found online here: ... gique-Grec

The current state-of-the-art for Greek etymology is Robert Beekes, Etymological Dictionary of Greek, which is by Brill and prohibitively expensive, but I noticed that in many entries, Beekes just follows Chantraine, which is freely available on Internet Archive as noted above.

Thanks for the heads-up, Stephen. This is a valuable tool for some kinds of research.
