Etymological dictionary of Slavic languages. Proto-Slavic lexical stock (Russian: Этимологический словарь славянских языков. Праславянский лексический фонд, abbreviated ESSJa) is an etymological dictionary of the reconstructed Proto-Slavic lexicon. It has been continuously published since 1974 until present, in 39 volumes.

History[edit]

The dictionary was conceived in the 1950s with the inadequacy of the existing Slavic etymological dictionaries in mind.[1] Since 1961 the preparations began for the dictionary under the direction of Oleg Trubachev at the Russian Language Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the USSR.[2] In 1963 a trial edition of the dictionary was published.[3] Since its inception, the dictionary has been published by the Department of Etymology and Onomastics of the Russian Language Institute.

The Editor-In-Chief in the period 1974—2002 was Oleg Trubachev, and since 2002 Anatoly Zhuravlev.

The dictionary[edit]

For every Proto-Slavic reconstruction an etymology is given, as well as the history of etymological research. Reflexes in all Slavic languages are listed, and so are the cognates in other Indo-European languages. Proto-Slavic accent and accentual paradigm is not reconstructed. Elements of Proto-Slavic morphology (affixes, desinences) are also not reconstructed. Volumes of the dictionary have been referenced in over 2100 journals and books.[4]
