Limburger Lyrics Oder Odes in Die Schönste Lengevitch.
New York:: Covici Friede, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. 123pp, Review copy with review label to f.e.p. Faint damp marking to upper board else very good. "Pennsylvania German, or more commonly (but less accurately) Pennsylvania Dutch, and increasingly Deitsch (Deitsch, Pennsilfaanisch-Deitsch, Pennsilfaani-Deitsch, Pennsilweni-Deitsch, Pennsilfaanisch), is a West Central German variety spoken by 150,000 to 250,000 people in North America. The word "Dutch" here is left over from an archaic sense of the English word, which prior to the 16th century referred to all people speaking a West Germanic language on the European mainland. English "Dutch" is cognate to Standard German "Deutsch" and Dutch "Duits", Pennsylvania German "Deitsch", all referring to the German, not the Dutch language (although the Dutch language was natively called Diets at that time).".. Very Good .
