Synopsis

This glossary draws from over 300 languages to provide a glimpse into how ancient as well as current place names have originated. Perfect for the student of geography as well as the casual etymologist, Place Name Elements supplies the reader with comprehensive entries that cite examples of the use of many elements, as well as the language of origin, and the English equivalent. From Afrikaan to Zuni, this reference work has been painstakingly researched, and will prove an invaluable tool to everyone from the high school geography teacher to advanced onomasticians.
