    Learn to embrace this delightful, powerful, humorous version of English—the mode of expression typical of Pennsylvania and German-Dutch descendants. 
     
    Here is a book for anyone tired of speaking flat, colorless, homogenized English. Pennsylvania Dutchman Gary Gates provides a glossary, read-aloud section, songs, recipes, and more in this delightful, inwaluable introduction to Dutch-ified English. Learn the meaning of “rutch” and “spritz,” what a “clod” and a “crotch” are, how to pronounce and make “Cussin Rachel’s Snitz und Knepp,” and what has happened to food when it’s all. As you read this book you will not only learn how to speak better, but when an American Dutchman becomes president you will understand him when he addresses the nation in Dutch-ified English. 
     
    “The German-influenced local patter known as Dutchified English is alive and well throughout the farmlands of Lancaster and several adjacent counties in southeastern Pennsylvania . . . Over the years, Dutchified English proved rich fodder for humorists, who performed under Dutchy monikers: Professor Schnitzel, Maria Budderfuss and Jakey Budderschnip. Hoping to inherit this audience today is Gary Gates, author of the two-volume series How to Speak Dutch-ified English.” —The New York Times
