Overview

The Pennsylvania Deitsh Dictionary is your key to understanding the language spoken by the Amish. It is a valuable tool for those with a casual interest in the Amish (and their mother tongue), as well as readers of the Pennsylvania Deitsh New Testament.

Pennsylvania Deitsh is spoken not only in Pennsylvania, but also in other Amish Communities throughout the United States. Some variations in the dialect exist from one locality to another. This dictionary reflects the everyday usage of the language by the Amish in Holmes County, Ohio.

The new spelling system in this dictionary was developed through extensive surveys with readers by Hank Hershberger, translator of Es Nei Teshtament. The spelling system used makes Pennsylvania Deitsh easy to read and pronounce for anyone.

If Pennsylvania Deitsh is not your mother tongue, this dictionary and the grammar explanations will help you to understand this dialect.

If you are a native Deitsh speaker, and have had difficulty writing in Deitsh or defining a Deitsh speaker, this dictionary will make it easier for you.

Thomas Beachy, the compiler of this dictionary, is a native of Holmes County, Ohio.
