Old Frisian cognates are rare, if not absent from current etymological dictionaries of the Germanic or Indo-European lexicon, leading to a notable underrepresentation of the contribution of Old Frisian to many lexical reconstructions. With this first etymological dictionary of Old Frisian, based on the Riustring 1 dialect, for the first time Old Frisian becomes accessible to a wide circle of scholars of German (and comparative Indo-European) languages. The latest insights on Indo-European and non-Indo-European substratum research have been systematically incorporated, and readers are provided with a sheer wealth of Indo-European and especially Germanic cognates. Boutkan's and Siebinga's work will prove to be an indispensable research tool for the study of any Old Germanic language and of (proto-)Indo-European.
