Is there such a thing as a good (comprehensive, informative, and not given to crackpottery) etymological dictionary of Hebrew? (The kind that would tell you, for example, that אצטרובל comes from the Greek strobilos 'twisted, whirled; a top; a whirlpool, a whirlwind; a whirling dance, pirouette'?)

And if there is, and you own it, would you mind looking up אין (the negative existential) and seeing whether it's claimed to be related to question words like איה ,מאין, etc.?
