This book represents a reconstruction of the Proto-Germanic vocabulary as attested in ancient and modern Germanic languages and projected to the Proto-Germanic level. The volume contains valuable linguistic information giving an outline of Proto-Germanic language, culture and pre-historic tradition. It is the first attempt to reconstruct the Proto-Germanic lexicon after the work of Falk and Torp in the beginning of the XXth century.
