Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements: Yiddish-Russian Dictionary


 To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.

2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu as plain text (no
HTML, other  coding, or attachments and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the
subject line.

3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has posted
the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames (in *this* case,
one and the same person).

Mendelyaner who read Russian may be interested in the superb "Bol'shoi
idish-russkiy slovar' " [Comprehensive Yiddish-Russian Dictionary] by
Aleksandr Soldatov (ISBN 978-5-9903098-1-4), published in 2011 in an
edition of only 2,000 copies. The dictionary contains more than 55,000
entries, as well as a grammatical sketch of Yiddish, and comes with a
multimedia cd. It is clearly printed on excellent paper. Soldatov's work is
based on several earlier dictionaries, including Weinreich and Niborski,
but In contrast to the older Yiddish dictionaries published in the USSR,
Soldatov's uses standard Yiddish orthography.

I purchased my copy through MIPP International after it appeared in their
latest Judaica catalog, but it may also be available through other
booksellers. Oddly enough, there is a printed notice on the reverse of the
title page, saying "This book is not intended for sale."
