A Thesaurus of Bird Names
This remarkable work contains some 100,000 names of 450 species of birds in 40 Indo-European languages. Besides bird denominations, thousands of names of things and colors have been assembled in categories of morphological, acoustic, chromatic or kinetic value. From the Atlantic to India, dialectal names are listed with indication of their localities. As well as ornithologists, this work will be of interest to linguists and dialectologists.
