Reviews for Modern English / Yiddish Dictionary

A book that ought to be owned by anyone who reads Yiddish. Irving Howe By far the best dictionary of Yiddish, but even one of the most modern and scientific dictionaries in general. Roman Jakobson I hope that all lovers of Yiddish and all those interested in our language will appreciate what Weinreich has done for them with competence and love.
