The Diccionari Etimològic i Complementari de la Llengua Catalana (or DECat ), in English, Etymological and complementary dictionary of the Catalan language, is a Catalan dictionary by Joan Corominas with cooperation of Joseph Gulsoy and Max Cahner.[1]

It was published by Curial Edicions Catalanes and consists of nine volumes, published between 1980 and 1991; a tenth volume (2001) contains a "suplement" and indexes. It was designed with the same criteria and methodology of other dictionaries by the same author: the Critical etymological dictionary of the Spanish language (1954-1957) and Critical etymological dictionary Castilian and Hispanic (1980-1991), in short: critical, etymological, historical and comparative.
