Etymology

Got nearly the complete set of the Finnish etymological dictionary today. All that's missing is the last part, which is the index, that I can otherwise order online when I get home. It was out of stock. Anyway, what an awesome dictionary; I was reading it on the bus and learning bizarre new words that I hadn't otherwise known anyway, and then (drool) learning their roots and equivalents in other Finnic languages. zOmg. They were also under great discounted, so four volumes cost 35€ instead of 80€. The Finnic gods must be smiling on me today.

Perhaps my summer project can be to read them all. Cover to cover.
