Kendall: Latin Vocabulary of Cognates and Derivatives
A Latin Vocabulary of Cognates and Derivatives by J. M. Kendall (1919)
The listings begin abruptly, with no preface or introduction. The arrangement is alphabetical (more or less - I will confess that I cannot quite figure out just how this book is arranged exactly!), with verbs, adjectives and nouns listed in columns. Some of the groupings are quite productive and useful, but this book seems strangely incomplete. I am not sure, for example, what has happened to the letter B. If anybody has any insight into this odd little book, let me know!
