But few remurks are deemed neeefltarjr in order to render the above Key, or 
system of notation, well understood. The words which are used as examples fi>r 
illustration, when pronounced by^orrect speakers, exhibit accurately the differ* 
ent sounds of the several vowels. 

Some distinctions are here made, which ate not found in other systems ; but 
they are not intended to introduce any new sounds, but merely to discriminate 
such as are now heard from all who speak the language with propriety. 


The peculiar sound of the letter a which is indicated by this mark (&), is nevei 
heard, except when it precedes the letter r, and is die sound which we daily 
hear in the words care, fair, pdir, $hare, differing p^nly from the long, slender 
sound of a in fate, pain, payer^ player, slayer. 

The letter a, wifli this mark (i), has an intermediate sound between the shor 
sound of a, as in fat, fnan, and the Italian a, as in far, father. The a in the 
words to which this sound is given in this Dictioiiary, is generally marked, by 
Perry, Jones, and some other orthoepists, as haying the same sound as a in far 
father; and by Walker, Jameson^ «nd some others, as having the proper short 
sound of a, as in fat, man. 

The peculiar sounds of the letters e, %, ti, and y, which are indicated when mark- 
ed thus (fi, 1, 0, y), occur only when these vowels are succeeded by r final, or by r 
followed by some other consonant, as in die words her, hetd, air, bird, cur, ewrd^ 
myrrh. The sound is as short as diese vowels, thus situated, readUy or naturally 
receive; yet it differs from their proper short sound, in met, merry, pin, mirror, 
hut, hurry, lyric, in a manner analogous to the diflference between the sound of a 
and in far and for, and the proper short sound of these vowels, as in fat, not. 

Vowels marked with the dot underneath (thus, §i, f, \, 9, 9), are found only in 
syllables which are not accented, and over which the organs of speech pass 
slighdy and hastily in pronouncing them. This mark is employed rather to indi- 
cate a slight stress of voice than to mark a particular quality of sound. If the 
syllables on which die primary and secondary accents fall are uttered with a 
proper stress of voiced these comparatively indistinct syllables will naturally be 
pronounced right * 

When the pronunciation is prefixed to the words in their proper orthography, 
without recourse to respelling, the vowels which are not marked, with the ex- 
ception of y (and, in some cases, of words in Italies), are sQent : thus a in h€at, 
ftar, e in AhU, gipe, harden, % in pdm, hijfer, in mdwn, fSbno^, and 10 in 
birrOw^ ^e not sounded.

This mark (t), prefixed to a word or definition, shows that it is obsolete, or Hot 
now in use. 

The asterisk (*) is prefixed, in many instances, to two pr more words of the 
same class or family, to show that their pronunciation is governed by the same 
general rule. In cases of this sort, the different modes in which orthoepists pro- 
nounce the leading word are inclosed in brackets ; or the leading word is re- 
spelled for pronunciation; and the others follow the same rule. The proi^pncia- 
tion of acceptable, for example, determines the pronunciation of acceptably and 
acceptabletiess. * 

With respect to words of dpubtful or disputed pronunciation, the different 
modes of different orthoepists are exhibited after the words i;i brackets, the name, 
or an abbreviation of the name, of the orthoepist, following his pronunciation. 
Thus it may be seen, for example, that the wor^^^corous is pronounced 
de-ko'rus by Sheridan^^cUker, Jones, Fulton and Knight, Jahieson, Johnson, 
Dyche, Barclay, and ^ees ; and d6k'9-riis by Perry, Enfield, Webster, and Ash. 

Words printed in Italics belong to foreign languages, and are not properly an* 


The Compiler of this Dictionaiy, some time since, perfbnned the task of 
editing "Johnson's Dictionary, as improved by Todd, and abridged by 
Chalmers, with Walker's Pronouncing Dictionary combined;" and while 
executing that labor, he formed the plan of this work. The small dictiona- 
ries in use seemed to him to be too defective, with respect to the number of 
words which they cAitained, and also with regard to definition and pronun- 
ciation, to answer the common wants of schools ; and likewise to be insuffi- 
cient for other uses, for which f. large octavo would be too expensive. But 
he delayed the execution of his design, in consequence of undertaking to 
abridge Dr. Webster's ^* American Dictionary of the English Language," a 
work of vast learning and research, containing far the most coYnplete vo- 
cabulary of the language that has yet appeared, and comprising numerous 
and great improvements upon all works of the kind which preceded it, 
with respect to the etymology and definition of words. To his almdg- 
ment of tiiat Dictionary, the Compiler prefixed a ** Synopsis of Words dif- 
ferently pronounced by different Orthoepists," which he originally design- 
ed for his own work ; and when he agi-eed to insert it in that abridgment, he 
reserved to himself the right of using it as he had at first«uitended. He 
lias no:, however, used the Synoi)si8 in the manner originally purposed ; 
but mstead of it, the authorities, with respect to words of various, doubt- 
ful, or disputed pronunciation, have been inserted in this Dictionaiy 
where such words occur, in their alphabetical order. This course was pre- 
ferred, because it was thought more convenient for use, and because variQUS 
otlier authorities might be brought forward in this manner, which could 
not be used in the Synopsis ; and the^stem might also be applied to niany 
more words. 

This Dictionary contains about 43,000 words, as many as 6,000 more 
than Walker's Critical Pronouncing Dictionaiy ; ^d with respect to those 
words for the orthography^ pronunciation, or definition of which an Intel-

not contained in this Dictionary, but which are feimd in others, condst chiefly 
of such as are obsolete or not in good use, and of participles, together with 
words variously compounded, as with aU, dis, in, mis, over, self, un,'underj 
&c. ; yet the most important of these compounds are inserted, and the imper- 
fect tenses and perfect participles of all the irregular verbs; and a considera- 
ble number of such obsolete words as are found in works which are not 

This volume comprises numerous technical terms in the various arts and 
sciences, and a more copious list, than any other English dictionary, of such, 
words and phrases from foreign languages as are often found in EngUsh 
books. This is a class of words with respect to which an English reader 
frequentiy wants assistance, both for definition and pronunciation. 

The active and neuter verbs are carefully discriminated ; all the irregular 
veibs are conjugated ; and the plural forms of irregular nouns are ex- 

The definitions are necessarily concise ; but it is believed that they will 
be found as comprehensive and exact as could be reasftiably expected fi-om 
the size of the volume ; and in numerous instances, technical, provincial, 
and American uses of words are explained or pointed out. 

In prepaiing this work, much use was made of Jameson's Dictionary ; but 
the two works which may be properly considered as forming the basis of it, 
are the dictionaries of Johnson and Walker, of which Jameson's professes 
to be chiefly a combination. It contains, however, several thousand words 
not found in Johnson or Walker. Mr. Todd added to his edition of John- ' 
son's Dictionaiy about 12,000 words, and of these Mr. Jameson retained all 
that he deemed important, and in addition to them, inserted a considerable 
number o*f technical terms. The words which Jameson selected from Todd, 
and the others which he added, are here retained, together with many more 
derived from "Crabb's "Technological Dictionary," Maunder's "New and 
Enlarged Dictionary," Dr. Webster's Dictionary, and other miscellaneous 
sources. But care has been taken npx to corrupt the language by giving 
sanction to new words which are unworthy of countenance. Words fix)m 
fereign languages and not angUcized, are printed in Italics, in order to indi^ 
cate, by their dress, that they are foreigners ; and generally, words of recent 
ori^ or doubtful authority, are noted as such* 

In the preparation of this woric, Pronunciation has been made a leading . 
object, and has received particular attention ^ and as a Pronouncing Diotion« 
aiy, it will be found to npssess pecuMar advantages. A prominent feature in 
the plan consists in the exUbition of authorities respecting words of various^

dictionaiy is cMefLy Wanted, the modes in which they are pnmouneed by all 
die most eminent EngMi orthoepists. The nun^Mr of jmBiitivB words 
reqpeeting which the authorities are pfos^ited, amounts to about 1,300^ and 
in addition to these, this process' also determines the pronunciation of a ^fg9 
number of derivatives. As the pronunciaticm of these words is regulajod 
by usage, and as there is a great diversity with regard to them, both 
among good speakers and. professed orthoepists, the exhibition of die differ* 
ent authorities seems to be the most satis&ctoiy method of managing 

The system qf notcUian which is here employed, while it makes a very 
exact discrimination of the different sounds of the letters, will be readily un- 
derstood and applied to practice, and will be ako much more easUy remem- 
bered, than a system in which the vowels are marked with figures. By 
applying the marks to the letters in the words in their -proper orthography, the 
necesfflty of respelHng the most of them has been avoided ; and in this way 
much space has been saved, while the pronunciation is fixed with as much 
exactness as if the spelling of eveiy word had been repeated. 

It is an advantage of this method of notation, diat it distinguishes thesyl- 
laUes which receive a secondaiy accent, or are i»onounced with a distinct 
sound of the vowels, firom thoise which are but sli^tiy or indistinctiy uttered. 
A great part of the words in the English language which have more than 
two syllables, have more than one syllable in some degree accented, or pro- 
nounced more distinctiy than the rest ; yet this discrimination is not made 
by the usual mode of marking the words. In this notation^ the vowels in 
the syllables which have either the primary or a seccmdaiy accent, have a 
mark denoting a distinct sound placed over them ; while diose which are 
more feebly uttered have a dot placed underneath them, indicating that the 
voice passes quickly and slightiy over them. By this means^ the pronunci- 
ation of a great part of the words is quite as cleariy rqiresented to the eye 
in their proper orthography, as it is in other methods of notation by reqpel- 
hng the words. 

The fi>llowing Table exhibits the manner in which the pronunciatioii <^a 
number of words is representfAlry Sheridan, Walker, Jones, and Jameson, 
together with the mode adopted in this work. These sevend orthoe^sts 
have each his own peculiar S3rstem of notation ; but as their different methods 
of marking the letters cannot be here exhilMted without much inconveli* 
ience, and without causing great eonfiision to the reader,' their respective 
modes with regard to the reqielling ei the words, are presented; and ia*

^ In relation to all the words here exhibited, these orthoepists agree with 
respect to two of the most important points in the pronimciation of words, 
namely, the syllable on which the accent is to be placed, and the quantity of 
the vowel in the accented syllable. Thou^ with regard to the mode of 
representmg the pronunciation' of most of the above words, there is consid- 
erable diversity, yet it is doubtless true that the pronunciation intended to be 
expressed differs, in reality, much less than it would seem to do ; and thal^ 
in numerous instances, these orthoepists agreed much better in their prac- 
tice, than in their mode of indicating it 

There is an obvious difference in the quantity and stress of voice with 
which the last syllables of the words ddtberatey vvtimate^ and moderate^ are 
pronounced, when verbs and when adjectives. All the above orthoe- 
pists mark the a long in the last syllable of all these words when used as 
veibs ; Jameson "^o marks it long in ail of them when adjectives ; Walker 
Mortens the a in the adjectives intimate and moderate ; and Sheridan and 
Jones change the a in all the words wh^n adjectives into short e. But there 
seems to be no advantage in changing the letter in such cases. It is but 
slightly pnmounced, and has not the distinct sound of either short e or short ' 
or long a ; and with respect to most of thci||pfetances in which die vowels in 
this Dictionaiy have a dot placed under them, they are so sli^ly pronounced, 
that to mark them with a distinct sound, either long or short, would tend rath- 
er to mislead, dian to asost in pronouncing them. If the syllables on which 
the primaiy and secondary accents fall, are correctiy pronounced, the com* 
parativdy indistmct syllables vnll naturally be pronounced right 
( There are many instances witib respect to which it is a matter of indifier- 
ence whether a syllable has the mark of the distinct or indistinct sound of 

, V 


die TOwel ; as for example, the last syUaUe of the words e(ms<m(mt^ dffidetdf 
fetbleness, and obvious^ might, widi about equal propriety, have the vowda 
maiked with a short or an indistinct somid. Th^e may be a want of con- 
sistency in marking such syllables in this volume ; but it is deemed of little 
importance, as it will not perceptibly affect the pronunciation. 

The {MX)nunciation of tu when following the accent, is variously r^re- 
sented by different orthoepists ; and the pronunciation of the wordsyeofure, 
nakaXf and natural, is represented in the preceding table wHh consideiBble 
•{^[Nirent difference ; yet these several orthoe{nstS, probably, differed litde 
m their own manner of pronoimciug them. Periiaps, however, the mode 
of rejnresentation adopted by Jameson is to be preferred, as least tending to 
mislead, or least liable to abuse ; while it keeps sufSciently clear of a vul- 
gar pronunciation, which we ofi^i hear, as though the words were spelled 
feUr, nater, nateral* The letter u, when unaccented, is, in various words, 
fnonounced by many with the slight sound of oo, as in value, vahudfU, 
gradwd, educate ; and in the last word, educate, some give it the sound of e, 
as if written edecate ; but the proper sound of this letter, in these words, can- 
not, perhaps, be better represented than by -yuy which, slightly somided, is 
e<piivale,nt to the unaccented long u. 

The vowel a, when maiked thus (a), has an intermediate sound b^ween ' 
the proper short o, as in fat, fan, and the Italian o^ as in far, father. This 
peculiar sound of a is discriminated by Fulttm and Knight; but in most 
instances in which a has this xhaik, in this Dictionaiy, Walker and Jameson 
give it the ^ort sound of a, while Peny, Jones, and Nares give it the Italian 
sound ; but to pronounce the words fcutt, last, glass, grass, danice, &c. with the 
proper sound of ediort a, as in hat, has the appearance of affectadoh ; and to 
pronounce them vrith the full Italian sound of a, as in part, father, seems to 
border on vulgarity. 

The usual sound of long a when followed by r, indicated by this 
mark (a), is discriminated by Peiry, but not by the other English ortho- 
epists, though they doubtless, as well as all others who ^peak the language 
with propriety, made use of it in practice. We hear the prc^r long sound 
m the words fate, lane, payer, player, slayer, betrayer, preyer ; but a palpabljT 
different sound in the words hare, pair, share, stair, prayer^ The neglect oi 
making a discrimination of these different sounds in marking diis vowel, has 
led some persons into a vicious and affected pronunciation. 

The sounds of a and o, when followed by r final, or by r suoeeeded by any 
odier consonant, as in the words^, carter, nor, border, have bemidistinguifidi- 
ed by the best orthoepists from the prc^per short sounds of these letteis. 
ISieridan, howev^, makes no distinction with regard to the lett^a; and 
Peny and Jameson make none in their notation with regard to the letter of 
dioi^ph Jameson recognises the distinction in his remarks on the somids of 


t|ie romebk The sbunds of the otfaw rowels ire infloenoed in a mmil^r 
taumfir hy bemg followed by r final, or r succeeded by another consonant. 
This M mentioned by Jameson with respect to the letter t ; but no one of 
these octhoqfNsts has applied the pincqile to the other vowels^ or has 
made the discnmination in his notation oiany of them except a and o. 
But those who can perceive a diflference between the sounds of a and o 
in &e w<»ds far^ early nor^ border, and the int>per short sounds of these let- 
. ters 'm/ai^ carry, mai, borrow, will not find it difficult to perceive an analo- 
gous difi^rence betwe^i the sounds of e in learn, ver^e, mercy, and in 9/ten, 
vmjff merry ; of % in fir, bird, and in pin, mirror; of u in hwrdU, turn, and 
mtun,\urryi of y in wyrde, and in' lyric. These vowels, with this maik 
(^ i, ii, y), have all nearly or quite the same sound, as will be perceived 
in the wprds her, sir, fur, myrrk, herd, bird, surd; but their proper shoit* 
sounds are wideh^ different, when followed by r, as well as by other 
con^cmants, as in merry, mirror, Murray. When maiked with two dots, 
these vowdb are to be pronounced with as ^ort a sound as they readily or 
naturally receive in their respective atuatlons ; but they cannot, thus situated, 
be pronoimced virith th^ proper short sound without effi»t or affectation. 

There is a class of words in which the letter o is generally maiked in this 
volume, as well as in other pronouncing dictionaries, vnth its short sound, 
but in which its sound ia usually somewhat protracted, and bordering on the 
sound of in nor, or of bsoad a, as in haU. Tlie foUowio^ words may be 
considered as of this class; namely, b^^one, gone, aloft, loft, soft, oft, often^ 
se^, ^ (^BRfpring, cost, frosi, lost, betroifi, broth, doOi, moth, wroth, cross, drosSf 
loss, moss, cough, trough, long, prong, song, strong, thong, throngs wrong. A 
fe^ (^ these are mailted by Sheridan and Nares with the sound of broad a; 
but Uiough they are all usually pronounced v^th a sound somewhat differ- 
ent &oih. the proper short o, yet to mark them with the fiill sound of broad 
Oi would countenance too drawling a manner. 

Walker observes of the sound of the letter o, that, ^ like a, it has a tenden- 
cy to l^gthen, when followed by a liquid and another consonant, or by s, 
ss, or • and a nrnte ; but this length of o, in this situation, seems eveiy 
day growing more and more vulgar ; and as it would be groiss, to a degree, 
to sound the a in casUe, mask^ plant, like the a in palm, psalm, &c., so it 
would be equally exceptionable to pronounce the o in moss, dross, ftrost, as

PREFACE. xui. 


The English authorities most frequently cited in this volume, are Sheri- 
dan, Walker, Peny, Jones, Enfield, Fulton and IQlight, and Jameson, all 
of whom are authors of Pronouncing Dictionaries. In addition to these, 
various other English lexicographers and orthoepists are occasionally brought 
forward, as Bailey, Johnson, Kenrick, Ash, Dyche, Barclay, Entick, Scott, 
Nai^s, Rees, Maunder, Crabb, and several others ; besides i)ur own coun- 
tiyman Dr. Webster. 

There is much difference in the degree of respect which is due to the 
difierent English orthoepists. But no one among them seems to have 
bestowed so long and patient attention, either in studying the analogy 
of the language or ascertaining the best usage, as Walker; and though 
the last edition of his work that was superintended by himself, was printed 
in 1804, yet his Dictionary has not been superseded by any that has follow- 
ed it It has undergone nmnerous.impressions both in England and Amer- 
ica ; it is still in extensive use ; and various testimonies might be quoted 
to show the high estimation i|^ which it is held. In an edition of an 
abridgment of " Johnson's Dictionary with Walker's Pronunciation," pub- 
lished in London in 1827, it is stated that ^the two standard dictionaries of 
the English language are those of Johnson and Walker ; the former in all 
that regards the authority and spelling of words ; the latter as to their pro^ 

But though Walker may be justly entitled to the first rank among the 
English orthoepists, yet the pronunciation of some of the others, with re- 
spect to many words, is to be preferred to his. Those who have succeeded 
him, have corrected more or less of his mistakes, and made some improve- 
ments on his plan ; and as some change has taken place since his time, they 
doubtless give, in a variety of cases, a more correct expression of the 
present usage. 

The pronunciation of the English language, like that of all Uving lan- 
guages, is in a great measure arbitrary. It is exposed to the caprices of 
feshion and taste ; it varies more or less in the different countries and 
districts in which the language is spoken ; and it is also liable to change 
fiom one age to another. No two speakers or orthoepists would agree i^i the 
pronunciation of all its words. The ultimate standard is not the authority 
of any dictionary or any orthoepist ; but it is the present usage of hteraiy and 
wellbred sociefy. It is therefore the duty of an orthoepist to show what the 
pronunciation actually is in such society, rather than what it .should be. 

The English orthoepists appeal to the usage of the best society in London 
as their principal standard ; but the usage of good society in that metropolifl 
18 not imiform, and no two orthoepists would perfectly agree* with eeupli 
other m attempting to exhibit it: and, although it is not to be ^estkmed, 
that, with regard to the many miUions who speak the English language, ib» 


usage of London is entitled to &r more weight than that of any other city, 
yet it is not the only circumstance that is to be observed. The usage of tho, 
best society of the particular country or district where one resides, is not to 
be disregarded. If our pronunciation is agreeable to the analogy of the 
language, and conformed to the practice of the best society with which we 
have intercourse, we may have no sufficient reason to change it, though it 
should deviate from the usage of London. A proper pronunciation is in- 
deed a desirable accomplishment, and is indicative of a correct taste and a 
good education ; still it ought to be remembered, that in speech, as in man- 
ners, he that is the most precise is often the least pleasing, and that aftectar 
tion is less pardonable than rusticity. 

Two modes of pronouncing a word are, in many instances, given in this 
work, independent of the forms included within the brackets ; and altema-- 
lives of this sort would have been presented in other cases, if different modes 
had not been cited from respectable authorities. The reader will feel per- 
fecdy authorized to adopt such a form as he may choose, whether it is ex- 
hibited vnthin the brackets or out of them 7 ai^d every one will probably, in 
some cases, prefer a mode found only within the brackets. The Compilei 
has not intended, in any case, to give his ovni sanction to a form which is not 
supported either by usage, authority, or analogy ; he has, however, in some 
instances, in deference to die weight of authorities, given the preference to 
a mode which his ovm judgment, independent of the authorities, would not 
have preferred ; fer it would be tmreasonable fer him to make a conformity 
to his ovm taste, or to the result of his ovni limited observation, a law to 
those who may differ from him, and yet agree widi a common, and perhaps 
die prevuling usage. But, though it has not been his design to make inno- 
▼ati<His, or to encourage provincial or American peculiarities, yet he has not 
always given the preference to the mode of pronunciation which Is sup- 
ported by the. greatest weight of authority ; and wliere orthoepists are 
divided, he has generally inclined to countenance that mode which is most 
confermable to analogy or to orthography. 

There are many words of which the pronunciadon, in England, is at 
present better conformed to the spelling, than it was formerly ; and the 
principle of conformity between the manner of writing and diat of speaking 
the langnage, has been carried still further in this country than in England — a 
principle which seems worthy of being encouraged, rather than of being 
checked. In a few cases, in v^ch a mode of pronunciation indicated by the 
orthography, and one or more modes deviating^from it, were about equally 
worthy of approbation, the Compiler has presented, on his ovm authority, the 
former only, allovring the reader to accept that or one included vtdthin the 
brackets, at his pleasure. The word lieuienant ihay be mentioned as a case 
in point The pronunciation of Ueu-Unfant is supported by respectable au 


thority, and is deserving of countenance, as it is best confonned to tlie spelling 
of the word ; yet, where it would appear stiff or affected, one of the other 
forms, lif-ten^ant, liv-ten'ant, or lev-ten' ant, is to be preferred. 

In giving the authorities for pronunciation, neither the spelling nor the 
notation of the orthoepists cited, has been generally exhibited, as it was 
necessary to reduce them all to one system. Their precise difference is 
not always presented with exactness ; yet the cases of failure are not impor- 
tant. The different editions of the authors used as authorities, differ in 
various instances ; and it is sometimes impossible to ascertain whether the 
intention of the writer has not been perverted by an error of the press. 

When the authority of Perry is introduced in this Dictionary, reference is 
always had to his " S3Tionymous, Etymological, and Pronouncing Dic- 
tionary," in royal 8vo, which was first published in London in 1805, and 
which differs in the pronunciation of many words foom " Perry's Royal 
Standard English Dictionary," published many years before. It is the 
last mentioned work, however, which is made use of in the pronunciation 
of Scripture Proper Names, ^ 

Much care has been taken with regard to Orthographt, a subject which 
presents considerable difficulty ; and, in order to adjust the spelling of many 
words which are written differently, an examination has been made of sev- 
eral of the best English dictionaries, and regard has also been had to usage 
and to analogy. With respect to several classes of words hereafter noticed, 
the orthography of this book has been^early conformed to that of Dr. 
Webster's Dictionary ; but there are various words to which Dr. Webster 
has given a new orthography, that will be found here in their usual 

" Dr. Johnson's Dictionary," says Mr. Nares, " has nearly fixed the external 
form of our language." Before the publication of that Dictionary, the or- 
thography of the English language was very unsettled; and notwithstand- 
ing the influence which that great work had in producing uniformity, the 
diversities, even now, are numerous ; more so, doubtiess, than is supposed 
by those who have not turned their attention particularly to the subject. 
Two of the most noted diversities are found in the two classes of words 
which end in the syllables ic or ick, and or or our ; as in the words^miwick, 
|mWick,/awur, /lonour. Dr. Johnson, in accordance with the general usage 
of his predecessors, spelled these classes of words with the k and w. 

With respect to the k^ though it Is still retained, in the class of words re- 
ferred to, in the recent editions of Johnson's Dictionary, and also in those 
of Sheridan, Walker, Jones, and Jameson, yet in most of the other English 
dictionaries which have been published since that of Johnson, it is omitted ; 
as it is, also, by Dr. Rees and Mr. Fulton in their miniature abridgments of 


Johnson. Walker, although he retains' it in his Dictionary, yet, in his re- 
marl^s upon it, decides against it, and observes, that "the omission of it is 
too general to- be counteracted, even by the authority of Johnson.'' The 
general usage, both in England and America, is now so strongly in favor of 
its omission, that it is high time it was excluded from the dictionaries. 
It is, however, retmned in monosyllables ; as, stick, brick ; and in words end- 
ing in ock ; as, hemlock^ hiUock, The verbs frolic, mimicy and traffic, which 
Dr. Webster excepts from his general rule, and writes with the k, stand, in 
this Dictionary, without it, as they do in those of Dyche (17th edition, 
1794), Perry, Rees, Maunder, &c.; but in forming the past tenses and 
participles, the k must be used ; as, trafficked, trafficking. 

The question respecting the letter i*, in words ending in <w' or our, is at- 
tended with more difficulty. Though the tendency to its exclusion baa 
long been gaining strength, yet its omission is far from having become so 
general as that of the k. Dr. Johnson himself does not retain it in all the 
words in which consistency with his rule would requu*e it ; for, though he 
writes anterior and interior with the u, he writes posterior and exterior with- 
out it. Some of the Enghsh dictionaries, which have been published since 
that of Johnson, scrupulously follow him in generally retaining the v^ yet 
they omit it in the words in which he omitted it ; but the greater part of the 
more recent English dictionaries carry the omission much further than 
Johnson did, and restrict the use of it to a small number of words, chiefly 
^ of two syllables. Entick excludes it from all words of the class in question 
which are derived directly from the Latin, but retains it in the following 
words, which have a different origin, namely, behaviour, demeanour, enamour^ 
endeavour, harbour, neighbour, parlour, saviour, succour, labour; also, arbour 
(which is derived remotely from the Latin) ; and armor and savor he gives 
in both forms. Dr. Ash gives many of the words derived, from the Latin 
both ways, but seems to prefer the omission of the u^ according to the system 
of Entick. Dyche, Barclay, Fukon and Knight, Enfield, and Maunder, also 
Rees and Fulton in their respective abridgments of Johnson, retain the u in 
the words above enumerated, and also in the following twenty words of 
two syllables (except that Dyche and Barclay omit it in ardour, and Barclay, 
and Fulton and Knight, in tremour), which are of Latin origin, namely, 
ardour,'candour^ clamour, clangour, dolour, favour, fervour, Jlavour, fulgouTy 
honour, Jiumour, labour, odour, rigour, rumour, splendour, tremour, valour^ 
vapour, and vigour ; also in words derived from these, as disfavour, dishon- 
, our, favourable, honourable : but the dissyllables error, horror, and terror, as 
well as aU the original and uncompounded words of more than two syl- 
lables, they write without the w ; as, inferior, emperor, &c. Dr. Webster 
extends the omission not only to those words which are of Latin origin, 
but also to all the others above enumerated. If we turn from the diction- 

PREFACE. ' xvii 

aries, in order to inquire what is the general usage of those who write the 
language, we shall find it in a very unsettled state. Many exclude the u 
altogether from the final syllable of the whole class of words in question ; 
yet a greater number, doubtless, retain it in a part of them ; but few of 
these, however, have probably setded very definitely, in their own minds, 
to what words they would limit it 

Such diversities being found in the dictionaries and in usage, it becomes 
a question of some difiiculty to be determined, what course it is most ad- 
visable to adopt ; for there is no one against which respectable authorities 
may not be cited. But as the omission of the i*, in many words in which 
it was retained by Johnson, has now become the established usage ; as a 
tendency to a further omission has long been gaining strength; as an 
entire exclusion is now supported by some good authorities; and as a 
partial omission is attended with inconvenience, on account of the difiiculty 
of fixing the limit, the Compiler of this Dictionary has, after considerable 
hesitation, decided on an entire exclusion of the u from the whole class of 
words in question. If any, however, are dissatisfied with this course, they 
can supply the deficiency with respect to the words which are not of Latin 
origin, according to the system of Entick ; or, together with these, they 
can include also the words of two syllables above enumerated, which 
are derived from the Latin, according to the manner of Dyche, Barclay 
and others. 

There are several other classes of words, more or less numerous, with 
respect to which there is a want of uniformity in the dictionaries and in 
usage, and of which it is proper here to take notice. 

1. Verbs derived from Greek verbs ending in i^w, and others formed on 
the same analogy, are written with the termination tze, and not wc; as^ 
characterize, patronize, 

2. Derivative adjectives ending in able are written without the c before a; 
as, Uamahle, movable ; not blameable, moveable ; except those of which the 
primitive word ends in ce or ge ; in such the c being retained to soften the 
preceding consonant ; as, peaceable, chargeable, 

3. Words ending in the syllable al or all, with the fuU sound of broad a, 
have the I double ; as, befaU, downfall, miscall, 

4. A class of compound words retain the final double I, which is found 
in the simple words ; as, foretell, downhiU, 

5. A class of words, the most of which are derived from verbs ending 
with the letter I, with the last syllable unaccented, and which are more 
commonly written with the final consonant of the primitive word doubled, 
though analogy would require it to be single, are inserted in both forms ; as^ 
iraveUer, traveler,-^A few other words are inserted in two forms ; as, dvlness, 
duUnesa ; fvlness, fullness ; skilful, skiUfvl ; wHful, vjiltfd ; but cMUness and 

xviii PREFACE. 

taUness, though found m most dictionaries with a single I, are inserted only 
in one form, and that with the double I, which they seem to require as 
much as the words sUUness and smaUness. 

Mr. Todd, in his edition of Johnson's Dictionary, spells the following 
words with an c after the g, thus, cibridgementy acknowledgement, adjudge- 
ment, judgement, lodgem^ent; and this mode is defended by Lowth and 
Walker; and is also countenanced by many respectable authors. The e is, 
however, omitted in all the above words, except lodgement, by Johnson and 
most other lexicographers ; and, in this Dictionaiy, the words have been 
rendered uniform by the omission of the- c. 

In addition to the above classes, there are many individual Words in the 
English language, with respect to the orthography of which a diversity ia 
more or less common, A copioiis list of these will be found at the end of 
the Dictionary, page 345, in the VocabvlaTry of tVords of Doubtful or Various 
Orthography, to which the reader is referred. 

The plural forms gf irregular nouns, and the imperfect tenses and perfect 
participles of irregukar verbs, are exhibited in this Dictionary ; and it may 
be useful to insert here the rules for forming the plural number of regular 
nouns, and the derivatives of regular verbs. 

1. The plural number of regular ncluns always ends in s, and is 
commonly formed by adding s to the singular; as, rumn, nouns; rule^ 

2. When the singular number ends in ch (soft), s, sh, ss, or x, the plural 
is formed by adding c« ; as, church, churches ; crocus, crocuses ; lash, lashes ; 
cross, crosses ; box, boxes, 

3. Nouns ending in o, preceded by a vowel, have s only added to form 
the plural ; as, folio, folios ; nuncio, nuncios : but if o is preceded by a 
consonant, es is often added; as, cargo, cargoes; hero, heroes; and some- 
times only s ; as, canto, cantos ; portico, porticos. 

4. Nouns ending in y, preceded by a consonant, form their plural 
number by changing y into ies; aB, city, cities ; spy, spies : but if the y is 
preceded by a vowel, the plural is regularly formed, by merely adding s ; 
as, day, days; attorney, attorneys; valley, valleys. This rule is often vio- 
lated, and the plural number is erroneously written with the termination 
ies; BB, attomies, vaUies. ' 

The imperfect tenses and the perfect participles of regular verbs always 
end in ed, and when the present tense ends in c, they are formed by the ad- 
dition ofd; in other cases, they are formed according to the following rule: 

Verbs of one syllable, ending with a single consonant, preceded by a 
single, vowel (aspton),- and verbs of two or more syllables, ending in the 


same maimer and having the accent on the last syStiUe (as regrd\ double 
the final consonant of the verb, on assuming an additional syllable ; as, 
pUm, planned; regret, regretted; but if a diphthong precedes the last con- 
sonant (as in join), or the accent is not on the last syllable (as in 8vffer\ the 
consonant is not doubled ; vj^ join, joined; suffer, suffered, sufferer. 

There is an exception to the last clause of this rule with respect to 
most of the verbs ending in the letter I, which, on assuming an additional 
syllable, are allowed to double the I, though the accent is not on the last 
syllable ; as, traoel, tnweUed, trtweUing, traveller; and also with respect to the 
derivatives of the word worship ; as, worshipped, worshipper. This, how- 
ever, is contrary to the analogy of the language, and is condemned by 
Walker, Perry, and Dr. Webster; and the last two lexicographers spell 
the derisative words of this class, in their dictionaries, with only' a single 2. 
In this Dictionary, tiiey are given in both fi)nns. To spell them vnth 
double I is most agreeable to usage ; but to spell them with a single I is 
most ccmsistent with analogy.
