The »Etymological Dictionary on Rabelais (Gargantua)« sets out to supply a semantic analysis of difficult and ostensibly 'easy' words (faux amis) used by Rabelais (1494?--1553) and to serve as a foundation for historical interpretation (linguistic and literary). To this end it provides systematic cross-references to the FEW dictionary (»French Etymological Dictionary«) and lists all the earliest known sources. The study of »Gargantua« has produced some 800 first references for words and meanings. The reference material has been verified from a language-historical viewpoint and the etymologies established by drawing on the FEW. This material consists of excerpts from »Gargantua« and the Rabelais references in all 25 volumes of the FEW.
