Stahl - Motza HaMilim

Google Books Link

This Hebrew book by Avraham Stahl ("The Origin of Words") was published in 1999 shortly before his death the following year.

The book is divided into sections (food, clothing, recreation, etc) with a running text - this is not a dictionary - discussing the origins of the Hebrew words and phrases of that type. There are no direct sources for each claim, but there is an extensive bibliography.
