Punks dialect dictionary

Vaina’s Lexicon is a glossary of the Lithuanian minority dialect in Poland. The glossary includes lexical material gathered and written down on flashcards by Juozas Vaina (Józef Vaina) between 1960s and 1990s.

The flashcards (around 6000) were granted by Juozas Vaina’s daughter, Marytė Vainaitė-Misiukonienė (Maria Misiukanis), to whom the Lexicon’s editors are extremely grateful.

Juozas Vaina (born 1916 in Widugiery, died 2011 in Puńsk) was a professor, an ethnographer, and a folklorist, founder of the Punsk Ethnographic Museum, named after him.
