Main text written in Traditional Chinese.

Half DOM method, half Comparative method. Etymological units in numbers. Chinese characters are given.

Selected phonetic data within DOM: Fusion of document points of 601~1161 (Middle Chinese) in Chinese records and in Wang's reconstruction-transcription system. Old Chinese in Zhengzhang's reconstruction-transcription system. Pre-Old Chinese in author's own reconstruction-transcription system.

Primary DOM target language: English. Occasionally referred target languages: selection from references. English in orthography. Other languages as citations. Primary etymological reference for target language: Origins: a Short Etymological Dictionary of Modern English.

Results of common etymological units: | Chinese ∩ (some representatives of Indo-European languages) | = 713.

Positions on definitions: Inclined to Sino-Indo-European common grounds in the past, with reservations on possibilities of prehistoric contacts between Pre-Old Chinese and Proto-Indo-European.
