The language, which resembles Czech and Polish in many ways, has many of its own special features - a quick browse of the pages turns up some of these. For example, Sorbian has a special word for the Irish people and the Scottish people (using a common ending -ojo).
The compiler of the dictionary has included many useful phrases to demonstrate how words are used. This livens up the content and is a huge improvement on the normal format for a concise dictionary which tells the reader very little about usage.
I would certainly recommend it as an essential item (it easily fits in a jacket pocket) for anyone visiting Lusatia, whether on business or for pleasure. Whereas the majority of the Sorbian people can also speak German, an effort by a foreigner to use some of the local language would, without doubt, be enthusiastically received.
