Wi Leahre Plautdietsch: A Beginner's Guide to Mennonite Low German

ByIsaias McCaffery

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book is a beginner's guide to Plautdietsch- a language spoken in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Paraguay, Belize, Bolivia, Germany, Russia and other nations. It assumes no prior knowledge of either Plautdietsch or standard German. The text may be used for either self-study or for classroom learning, and it is deliberate in limiting the amount of grammatical terminology/jargon that appears. The goal is to assist in everyday communication and to open a window into the existing world of Low German literature. Many "triple entries" are provided in English, Plautdietsch and High German [Hochdeutsch]. Dialogues and short readings will also introduce German-Russian Mennonite cultural themes. "Wi Leahre Plautdietsch" is presently the only grammar of its kind produced in the Americas. Other literature pertaining to Mennonite culture and tradition can be obtained through the MENNONITE HERITAGE & AGRICULTURAL MUSEUM. Visit the website at [email protected].
