Dictionary of Plautdietsch Synonyms and Antonyms
Finding the precise word or phrase that will help a writer express his idea with impact and accuracy requires a very special tool. It is hoped that this Dictionary of Plautdietsch Synonyms and Antonyms will prove to be that tool for people writing in the Plautdietsch dialect. Work on this project over a number of years has proven to the author that our 450-year-old dialect, originally formulated in the 16th and 17th centuries in Northern Europe, is unbelievably and un- expectedly rich in its vocabulary and possibilities of expression.
The stimulus for the present work arose out of the enjoyment experienced by the author in the use of such synonym and antonym finders in other languages. This attempt to create such a dictionary in the Plautdietsch dialect is the result."
