Palestinian-German dictionary

With support from the Fritz-Thyssen-Foundation I am currently working on a Palestinian-German dictionary. The work is based on my Glossary for the texts from the villages around Ramallah. In two sabbatical years on the West Bank over 13.000 words with usage samples have been collected, grouped into more than 4.000 Semitic roots. In the third phase of the project missing words from the dialectological literature are incorporated, with an exact reference. After incorporation of Bauer's dictionary the work contains more than 5,500 roots with over 20,000 entries. About 7,000 usage samples or compound expressions are added.

The dictionary contains both old vocabulary on the brink of extinction as well as the modern youth language. Entries could not yet be conclusively verified, or their etymology should be desirably added are color-coded.

At unregular intervals I propose to offer here my work in progress in PDF-format. I am grateful for references regarding errors and additions. Please send them to the author seeger@uni-hd.de, who also would be pleased for any other feedback.
