Description from publisher:

This collection contains 909 Mennonite Low German [Plautdietsch] proverbs gathered in Central Kansas during the past decade. Plautdietsche [German-Russian Mennonites] comprise the largest community of German dialect speakers left in the state, but the language's longterm survival is uncertain. Each entry is written in Low German, English and standard German, and many are also annotated. Also included is an introductory essay, pronunciation guide, keyword index and bibliography [184 text pages].
