Summary 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. Aside from a concise history and grammar of the language, this dictionary contains more than twenty-five thousand entries -- from Aajdatjs (lizard) to Resse'rieta (prankster) and Zyreen (siren) -- taken from everyday speech, popular sayings, and literature. This work offers a fascinating view of the history and present state of Mennonite Low German, which, unlike most minority and immigrant languages worldwide, continues to thrive and grow.
