edited by C. Richard Beam and Joshua R. Brown

  • 1200


This long-awaited encyclopedia dictionary has been compiled and edited for the past 50 years! This first volume covers words in the dialect from A to Ayyel including pages of terms, definitions, and important contextual sentences. An invaluable introduction covers pronunciation, orthography, the history of Pa. German lexicography, etc. Using not only existing dictionaries as the basis (Lambert, Hower, Kyger), this volume has been developed and added to by many speakers of the dialect both in the U.S. and Canada. Literary sources (plays, prose, poetry, newspaper columns) also appear. (161pp. hardcover. Center for Pa. German Studies, 2004.)
