It’s simple enough to discover whether a modern English word is related to an Old English word by checking its etymology in the Oxford English Dictionary. To my knowledge, Holthausen’s Etymologies is the only resource for checking the etymologies of Old English words, and it’s in German. While Google Translate will help with this, some of you German speakers have kindly offered your assistance, so I’m making this a crowd-sourced Old English etymological project!
The first pages I need help with are the abbreviations and the forward. I’ll post them below.
Anyone who feels inclined can write her or his translations in the comments below, and I will be extremely grateful! I’ll update the captions on each image so it’s clear which pages still need translating.
The book is: F. Holthausen, Altenglisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch (Heidelberg: Carl Winter Universitätsverlag, 1974). It was first published by Holthausen in 1933.
