Kjenn jie noch Plautdietsch? (Are you still able to speak Low German?) This famous phrase is more relevant today than it was 20 years ago. This unique language has sometimes been viewed as a mysterious dialect because it was only spoken and wasn’t used in written form.   So how do you learn it if you cant read it? Thankfully, Herman Rempel was one of the very first individuals to realize that we need something in print in order to learn and preserve this very important part of the Mennonite culture.  

This is a smaller dictionary than the volumes written by Jack Thiessen. However its clear, concise format contains the vast majority of familiar words and phrases, which are used by Mennonites in everyday life. So, how much Plautdietsch do you still know? How much of it are you still able to speak? Bring this Low German dictionary to some friends and have some fun over faspa! Rest assured, you’ve never had so much fun with a dictionary in your life! You’ll find yourself taking it everywhere you go!
