Format: Paperback
This is a superb little dictionary that gives the outsider an insight into Sorbian culture.
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.

I like this dictionary. But I think that it lacks some information needed for people unfamiliar with slavic languages. For example, you will find that sorbian word for "deer" is either "jeleń" or "sorna", but there is not written that the first word is used for a male deer and the second one for a female deer. Same problem applies for some plural forms (ryba, ryby) etc.

It is a rather small dictionary of the Upper Sorbian language. The Lower Sorbian is different, but it is unfortunately dying out, so this dictionary is for the more useful version of Sorbian. It does have even a few uncommon words, but it surprisingly lacks some important words, like duck, eagle, tail, fingernail (the word listed for 'nail' means only the metal nail, not the finger or toenail), rib, belly, bee, bite, liver. It has a few countries, like Italy or Ireland, but it does not have Poland or the Czech Republic, even though they are neighboring countries with similar languages. In fact Sorbian has some words borrowed from Czech. There is no grammar section. The vocabulary section has no grammatical information, not gender, nor declension, or conjugation, nothing, for Sorbian, nor for English, which does have after all some irregular verbs. The English words are not provided with pronunciation, which makes the dictionary not very useful for speakers of Sorbian. There is a guide to Upper Sorbian pronunciation, but it has errors, it says that w is pronounced like the v in visit, which is wrong, Sorbian preserves the Old Slavic pronunciation of w as w in was, so it is actually pronounced the same as the barred l. So Sorbs have to learn by practice whether a word has a w or a barred l, they can't tell by pronunciation. Y is described as u sound formed by pursing both lips, which is quite wrong, it is a sound similar to i in sit, similar to Polish y. Ch is described as being pronounced with a few exceptions as English k, but in reality it is more aspirated than English k, while Sorbian k is unaspirated, so they are not pronounced the same. O is described as like in hot, which is somewhat useful for British speakers, but not for American speakers, who pronounce the o in hot similar to Sorbian a.Read more ›
