WebOct 15

Most of my dictionaries are in storage. I have dictionaries of different languages, dictionaries of phrases, dictionaries of fables, the odd thesausus and an Etymological dictionary. They aren't anything I look at regulary but I like to have them around and sometimes I will spend half an hour reading through them for the fun of it. But I suppose like many reference works, the physical is losing out to the online. My present choice of an etymological dictionary is

ETYMONLINE.

This seems quite comprehensive (adjective 1610s) and trustworthy (adjective 1791), which is what you want.
