Bavarian isn't just a dialect, it's a language onto itself. One man, Otto Hietsch, loved it so much he wrote a Bavarian-English dictionary series that I have owned for many years already. Every once in a while, I quote some of Hietsch's entries in the "Gauzeitung" in the "Bayrisch G'redt" column. The set has been added to and combined into one book. The link takes you to an entertaining Bayrischer Rundfunk segment about the author and many of the amusing words contained in his book.
