Title: 3501 Plautdietsch Verbs
Subtitle: Fully conjugated in all the tenses - Alphabetically arranged
Written By: Eldo Neufeldt
Series Title: LINCOM Digital Language Library 02
Description:

“The idea of collecting Plautdietsch verbs for conjugation, arose in my
mind about ten years ago, and occurred in the following way: I had then
just recently become aware that a fellow Plautdietsch speaker had written
two books some years previously: 'The History of Low German &
Plautdietsch,' and 'The Spelling of Low German & Plautdietsch.'

Plautdietsch is my mother tongue. The two titles mentioned awakened me from
a long slumber of 50 years (between my 20th and 70th years), during which I
had not used Plautdietsch at all, but had allowed it to fall into disuse
while pursuing my education. After studying those two books thoroughly, it
struck me that I had allowed a precious heritage not only to lie dormant,
but had virtually contributed to its demise. I felt sure that if I sat down
and began to write, the words would begin to come. Once I began, I realized
that to write anything, one needs to know something of verb forms. That
lead me to begin the collecting of some very common Plautdietsch verbs, and
then tentatively to conjugating them. I began compiling lists of
Plautdietsch verbs from every possible source and then to conjugating them.

As seen by the title of this work, the total list has swelled to 3,500
fully conjugated Plautdietsch verbs. This publication would prove to be a
gold mine for anyone wishing to write in Plautdietsch.” (Eldo Neufeld,
March 2009)
