Modern Yiddish-English, English-Yiddish
Dictionary Published After 20-Year Research

"The Modern English-Yiddish
Yiddish-E n g 1 i s h Dictionary," a
joint publishing venture of YIVO
Institute for Jewish Research and
McGraw-Hill Book Company, was
published this week after nearly
20 years of preparation. It is the
first Yiddish-English dictionary in
40 years and the first completely
new English-Yiddish dictionary in
75 years, according to the YIVO
Institute, and the publishers be-
lieve it is an achievement of spe-
cial cultural and linguistic signifi-
cance.
The YIVO dictionary reflects the
growth and development of the
language giving many hundreds of
new Yiddish words, phrases, and
idioms, .as well as precise equival-
ents of hundreds of contemporary
English terms. It presents the liv-
ing language as it is employed now
by cultivated speakers, emphasiz-
ing current shades of meaning and
up-to-date usages. It embraces both
colloquial and literary forms pro-
viding access to current idiomatic
speech and the language of litera-

The Dictionary is not intended for
the immigrant, but for the English-

speaking reader who wishes to in
crease his mastery of Yiddish as
a second language.
Dr. Uriel Weinreich, late Atran
Professor of Yiddish Language,
Literature, and Culture at Colum-
bia University, spent nearly 20
years preparing the "Modern Eng-
lish-Yiddish Yiddish-English Dic-
tionary." Founder and first direc-
tor of Columbia University's Lan-
guage and Culture Atlas of Ash-
kenazic Jewry he was able to
gather from this rich source num-
erous items in addition to those

gleaned from literature and from
living speech. A well-known lin-
guist, Dr. Weinreich was the au-
thor of "College Yiddish," a pop-
ular textbook about to appear in
its fifth revised edition, editor of
"The Field of Yiddish," and a fre-
quent contributor to scholarly jour-
nals in his field.

"The Modern English-Yiddish
Yiddish-English Dictionary" con-
tains 842 pages includes more than
20,000 words in each part and fea-
utres a special introductory sec=.
tion on Yiddish grammar and spell-
ing.
