Trial of online database Yiddish dictionary

Yiddish Dictionary

In 2002, Yiddish lexicography took a step forward with the publication of the Dictionnaire yiddish-français by Yitskhok Niborski and Bernard Vaisbrot. But for students of Yiddish not fluent in French, using this dictionary requires looking up the definitions in a French dictionary.  Now we are proud to announce that an English version of this dictionary is now available from Indiana University Press.

Access is via the Database Trials page .

This Trial is through March 31, 2017.
