I am interested in the etymology of words in Latin. Is there a resource available that could help me determine if a word is specifically from Old, New or Vulgar Latin etc. according to a time it is first attributed to? I have already looked at Wikitionary and I have found it lacking in the information I am seeking. I am also wondering if a dictionary exists for every stage in the history of the language as this would enable me to notice and learn how or if the language has changed for certain words.
Classic etymological dictionary:
- Etymologies, St. Isidore of Seville (c. 560-636 A.D.)
Modern etymological dictionaries:
- Dictionnaire étymologique de la langue latine, Ernout & Meillet (1st ed. 1932; 4th ed. 2001)
- Etymological dictionary of Latin and the other Italic languages, Michiel de Vaan (2008)
