In July 2008 my Etymological Dictionary of Latin and the Other Italic Languages (EDLIL) was published.
The main goal of the dictionary is to describe which roots and stems of the vocabulary of the Italic languages (encompassing, for Vaan's purposes, the language families of Sabellic, Latino-Faliscan, and Venetic, and excluding Messapic) are likely to have been inherited from Proto-Indo-European.
