Title: Pennsylvania Dutch
Subtitle: A Dialect of South German with an Infusion of English
Written By: S. S. Haldeman
URL: http://www.evolpub.com/Americandialects/MidAtlbooks.html
Description:

Originally published in 1872 by the Reformed Church Publication Board in
Philadelphia, PA, this historically significant reprint gives a brief but
thorough explication of Pennsylvania Dutch--a German dialect spoken in the
Pennsylvania towns of Easton, Reading, Allentown, Harrisburg, Lebanon,
Lancaster, and York. Out of print for many years, the work represents one
of the earliest scientific treatments of the Pennsylvania German dialect
and offers a snapshot of the language as it existed in the 19th century.

Included in the volume is a history of how a dialect of German came to be
spoken in Pennsylvania, the phonology of the dialect, a vocabulary of
peculiar words, syntax, and comparisons to other German dialects. Also
included are several pages of PA Dutch phrases and sentences, examples of
PA Dutch words adopted into English, and samples of "broken" English spoken
by the PA Dutch.
