The "Mennonite Low German Dictionary" is the most extensive reference work to date on the vital language of thousands of Mennonites in places as far flung as Russia, Canada, and Latin America. It provides a concise history and grammar of the language and more than twenty-five thousand entries--from "Aajdatjs" (lizard) to "Resse'rieta" (prankster) to "Zyreen" (siren)--taken from everyday speech, popular sayings, and literature. This reference work offers a fascinating view of the history and present state of Mennonite Low German, which, unlike most minority and immigrant languages, continues to thrive and grow.
