Poitevin-English/French dictionary available?

I've been searching the web, but I can't find any sort of translator or dictionary for Poitevin (the regional language of Poitou %26amp; Vend茅e in France,) not even a list of some simple words.

So, could you either send me a link to an online dictionary or write the Poitou equivalent of some simple words e.g. 'yes', 'no', 'hello', 'goodbye'.

Thanks a lot, in advance :)Poitevin-English/French dictionary available?
Hardly anyone speaks it. Those that do all know standard French as well, which is very similar. Common words are all the same.Poitevin-English/French dictionary available?
Here is a site about Poitevin:鈥?/a>

However, even if it were still spoken, words like oui, non, bonjour and au revoir would not be different. These everyday words are the first ones to be standardized when local patois are set aside in favour of the national language.

There is a dictionary of poitevin: Dictionnaire des r茅gionalismes de l'Ouest, by Rezeau
