Abstract

This paper’s authors, who are also authors and coordinators of DELR, discuss the etymological treatment of neologisms in Romanian academic dictionaries, with a special emphasis on words starting with the letters A–D. The paper comprises some original etymologies, completing and correcting the solutions previously proposed by DEX and DLR. This endeavour calls for a fresh overview of the main criteria used by lexicographers in scientific etymological research, and for a re-evaluation of several concepts such as multiple etymology or mixed etymology. The paper discusses the origins of 132 words and is organized according to the main criterion that underlay the authors’ option for a certain etymological solution.
