Text is in Yiddish. This massive work reached only the conclusion of Aleph, but because of the significance of that letter yielded 80,000 entries, one third of the entire Yiddish vocabulary. The work was planned to go thirteen volumes, but the deaths of Joffe and then Mark as well as many of their over 300 correspondent brought the work to a half. Perhaps someone will come along and work with whatever notes remain for the rest of the Yiddish vocabulary. Until then we will have to make do with this great achievement as is.
