Words of Germanic and Slavic origin are spelled in Yiddish pretty much the way they are pronounced. But words of Hebrew or Aramaic origin usually retain their original spelling, while their pronunciation may have changed a great deal. You can see this in the term לשון־קודש, pronounced [LOShN-KOYDESh]. That's why the dictionary has to give the pronunciation for these words.

To convert these words from transliteration to the traditional spelling, you need to use a dictionary. Fortunately our friend Refoyl Finkel has done this for us: Yiddish Typewriter
