Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The standard reference guide, with more than 20,000 entries ranging from colloquial to literary Yiddish, plus: a grammar guide, a pronunciation key, and instructions for usage

 

Dr. Uriel Weinreich’s Modern English-Yiddish Yiddish-English Dictionary has been praised by both scholars and Yiddish writers for its completeness, its remarkable insight into the meanings of Yiddish words and expressions, and its precise presentation of Yiddish grammar and pronunciation. It is the work of one of this century’s most admired scholars of Yiddish language and culture, and took twenty years to complete.

 

Comprehensive and reliable, the Modern English-Yiddish Yiddish-English Dictionary is the standard reference guide to contemporary Yiddish, an essential volume for the beginner and the expert alike.
