■omeroui clasws of the community, T¥fao .want for consultation, something above 
an ordinary school dictionary, bat who are not disposed to purchase Webster's 
larger works. 

For this purpose, numerous additions have been made to the vocabulary, and 
to the definitions, particularly from that portion of the Americcm Dictionary 
which was added in the edition of 1841, and also from the addenda of 1843 ; so 
that the number of words in the vocabulary is above ^2^ thousand. By .these 
improvements, it is made to correspond better with th^ progress of the language, 
and with the increasing intelligence of the people of this country. 

By consulting general usage, anabgy, and the best authorities, by a system 
of notation easily understood, and by a collection of rules prefixed, it has b^en 
the endeavor to make this a correct and convenient pronouncing Dictionary. 
Walker's vocabularies of Clasncal and Scripture proper names are annexed, 
together with variations from Walker, in Perry, and in Fulton and Knight

by Dr. Webster in his great work. 

It is believed that among the millions who have used Webster's books, there 
are many who would like to know more of the Author. Accordingly, a short 
notice of his life is prefixed. 

This Dictionary, designed for general and popular use, is now presented to 
^Ihe public, in the hope that it will meet the wants gf multitudes of the coun-

Amberst, October. 1845. 






Since &e first publication of this edition, in 1845, the Amenccm Dictionary 
has been carefully revised, under the general superintendence of that accom- 
plished scholar, Professor Groodrich, of Yale College, and numerous and impor*

Noah Webster was bom in West Hartford, in the state of Con 
necticut, on the 16th of October, 1758. His father was a respectable 
fanner and justice of the peace, and was a descendant of John Webster, 
from Warwickshire, England, one of the original settlers in Hartford, and 
for a period governor of the state of Connecticut. His mother, ^a supe- 
rior and excellent woman, was a descendant of William Bradford, the 
second governor of Plymouth colony. 

He passed his boyhood like the sons of other farmers, in agricultural 
occupations during most of the year ; attending a district school in the 
winter, and spending the long evenings of that season at the family fire- 
side, in the study of those rudiments of an English education, which were 
then taught in common schools. 

When fourteen years of age, from that love of knowledge which was 
the ruling passion of his life, he commenced the study of the classics, 
under the instruction of the clergyman of the place, the Rev. Nathan 
Perkins, D. D. ; and in 1774 was admitted a member of the Freshman 
class in Yale College. 

While a student, he showed the same traits of character which were 
sfterward fully developed ; the same spirit of investigation, the same indus- 
trious habits, the same love of order and of propriety in things and in per- 
sons around him, the same adherence to truth and honor in his own conduct 

In his junior year, New England was thro^.it Stftft dbTj6ten*afi<5o:by:?lie 
famous expedition of Gen. Burgoyne. It wa^ ti^fnversMly fcs^ed-th&t wHat 
that commander had vauntingly said in the British, parjianjenlf^that with 
a few thousand men he could march over the country; lhi§^t ^tPVe to be 
DO idle boast. He at once volunteered his services inSer l&e, command 
of his father, who was captain in the alarm list. : I]lthA^raifii)ajgn,'4llthe 
males in the family, four in number, were in th& army at 'the sUihe* time, 
and continued in it till the surrender of Burgoyne. There was kindled 
in his breast the fire of patriotism, which was extinguished only with his 
life. Notwithstanding the interruption of his studies by causes connected 
with the war, Mr. Webster graduated wiih reputation in 1778. 

He was now thrown upon his own efforts for subsistence. On his 
tetum from the Commencement, when he graduated, his father gave him 
an eight-dollar bill of the continental currency, worth about a dollar in 
silver, and told him he must henceforth rely upon himself for support. 
In order to defray his current expenses, he engaged in teaching school at 
Hartford, residing during the summer of 1779 in the family of Mr., after- 
ward Chief Justice Ellsworth. 

In 1781 he was admitted to the practice of the law, a profession which 
he had studied in the intervals of his regular employment. While engaged 
in his studies, he noted down every word whose me&ning he did not dis- 


dnctly understand, for the purpose of further examination. The number 
of words thus noted, of which he could find no definitions at all, or only 
very imperfect ones, deeply impressed upon his mind the deficiencies of 
the best dictionaries then in use. 

But, as the embarrassments of the country forbade him to hope for imme- 
diate practice in his profession, in 1782, while the American army was 
ying on the bank of the Hudson, he established a classical school in 
uoshen, Orange county. New Yorb The country was impoverished ; 
ntercourse wiSi Great Britain was interrupted ; and there was no certain 
prospect of peace ; school books were scarce, and hardly obtainable, and 
some of them full of errors. In these circumstances, he compiled two 
small elementary works for teaching the English language. In the 
autumn of that year, he rode to Philadelphia for the purpose of showing 
his manuscripts to gentlemen of influence, and obtaining a law for securing 
to authors the copy-right of their publications. Having exhibited his 
manuscripts to several members of the Continental Congress then in ses- 
sion, among whom was Mr. Madison, and to the Rev. Stanhope Smith, 
then professor of theology at Nassau Hall, Princeton, and afterward presi- 
dent of that institution, he was by them encouraged to prosecute his desiga. 

Accordingly, having at Goshen devoted the winter to the revision of his 
manuscripts, and the introduction of some improvements suggested by 
gentlemen in Princeton and Philadelphia, he returned in 1783 to Hartford, 
where he published the "First Part of a Grammatical Institute of the English 
Language, ^ di title adopted at the suggestion of President Stiles, but after- 
ward changed for another. The second and third parts were published in 
the years immediately following. These books, comprising a spelling 
book, an English grammar, and a compilation for reading, were the first 
books of the kind published in the United States. They were gradually 
in\j:l>{pLicpdr^it)tp tQO^i y^ithajichools in the country. 

• ^b^itqprovemWYU'uixiii.^il worth, and similar British works, introduced 
into hi^.^[ieliij[ig,Jbook^ w^r^ : 1. A division of syllables according to the 
pronuncisCtfon.* '-Thu^^J^-^t^, ta-lent, the English mode, was rejected, and

vowels, and such an arrangement of words, that a single figure indicated 
the' proper sound of the vowels of the accented syllables in whole col- 
umns. 4. A new classification of words, bringing into the same tables 
words of a like formation. 

At first, when he came to Hartford to publish this book, he could find 
no man who encouraged him to expect to succeed, except Judge Trumbull 
and Joel Barlow. Indeed, upon its first publication, it m^t with much 
opposition. A pauphlet, entitled " Dilworth^'s Gliost^*^ was extensively 
circulated, for the purpose of deterring the public from using it. But the 
people, not frightened at that ghost, used the book. About twenty 
millions have been published, and the demand is increasing. Mor^' 
persons have learned to read from it than there are inhabitants in the 
United States. *' To its influence, more than to any other cause, is thift 
country indebted for that remarkable uniformity of pronunciation which is 
often spoken of with surprise by English traveled." 


MSiconu Tii 

Soon after die dose of the war, there grew ap in the country, especially 
in the northern parts of it, a Tiolent^and organized opposition to the half 
pay and comniirtation acts, passed by Congress, for the relief of ^e army 
of the rerolntion. Indeed, so extensive and deep-seated were tb^. popular 
discontents, expressed both against Congress and the disbanded army, as 
to threaten the most dangerous civil dissensions. In this emergency, Mr! 
Webster, frofn a regard to justice, as well to those who fought as to those 
who legislated for the welfare of their country, employed his pen so 
successfully in defense of Congress, and in allaying discontent in Con 
Becticul, that he received the thanks of Governor Trumbull in person, and 
was publicly declared by a member of the council, ^ to have done more to 
support the authority of Congress, at this crisis, than any other man." 

Like many other intelligent men, Mr. Webster early perceived the 
insufficiency of the old confederation for the purposes of government. 
The war, by forcing the states to act in concert, gave it whatever of 
strength it had. Peace, by removing the common danger, proved its 
weakness. In the winter of 1784-5, he published his " Sketches of Amer- 
ican PoUcy^^ in which he urged the establishment of a new form of govern- 
ment, which should " act, not on the states, as did the old confederation, 
but directly on individuals also, like the present system." This pamphlet, 
in the spring of 1785, was by him presented to General Washington, at 
Mount Vernon, who referred the arguments to a member of the legislature 
of Virginia. It contained, it is believed, the first distinct proposal made 
through the medium of the press, for a new constitution of the United States. 

One object of Mr. Webster's journey south, at this as at other times, 
was to obtain laws (rom the state legislatures, securing to authors the 
exclusive right to the publication of their productions. He was, to some 
extent, successful. Some of the states passed such laws. ** Public 
attention was thus called to provision for the support of American litera- 
ture, which was rendered more effectual by a copy-right law enacted by 
Congress in 1790.'* In 1826, he resumed his efforts on the subject, in 
order to procure such an alteration of the law as should, by giving exten- 
sion to the rights of authors, secure to them a more ample reward. To 
accomplish this, he spent a winter in Washington, in the years 1830-31 
An act was passed by Congress at the session of that season, more 
hberal in its provisions than the former law. In his journeys to effect this 
object, and in his long attendance afterward at Washington, he expended 
nearly a year of time. 

On' his return from the south, in 1785, he prepared, in Baltimore, a 
conrse of lectures upon the English language, which, in the next year, 
were delivered in the principal Atlantic cities, and which were published 
in 1789, lender the title of ^''Dissertations on the English Language.^* 

In the year 1787, during which he superintended a school in Philadel- 
phia, the convention which formed the present Constitution, were in session 
in that city. When they had finished their work, Mr. Webster was 
solicited by Mr. Fitzsimmons, one of the members, to give the aid of his 
pen in recommending the new system of government to the people. 
Accordingly, for this purpose, he wrote a pamphlet, entitled ** An Exam" 
motion of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution.^^ 

In 1789, Mr. Webster married a daughter of William Greenleaf, Esq., 

nu MraaiB. 

of Boston, and establi^ed himself at Hartford, in the pnu^ce of the 
law. In 1793, he was solicited by some eminent statesmen to establish 
a paper fn the city of New York, in defense of Washington's administra- 
tion, then violently assailed by the partisans of France. Accordingly, 
from his strong attachment to the principles of the Father of his Comitry, 
be removed to New York, and there established a daily paper, called the 
* Minerva, with which he connected a semi-weekly paper, called the Herald^ 
names which were afterward changed to those of the Commercial Adver* 
tiser, and the New York Spectator, This was the first example of a paper 
for the country, made up from the columns of a daily paper without re- 
composition, a practice which is now common. 

In 1795, he published, in vindication of Mr. Jay's treaty with Great 
Britain, to which there was violent opposition, a series of papers, under 
the signature of Curtids, which were extensively re-printed throughout 
the country, and which, in the opinion of Mr. Rufus King, expressed to 
Mr. Jay, did more than any other papers of the same kind to allay the 
opposition to the treaty. In 1799, as the result of laborious investigation, 
he published in two volumes, octavo, his ^^History of Pestilential Diseases" 
which was re-published the same year in England. In 1802, he pub- 
lished his celebrated Treatise on the ^^ Rights of Neutrals ;" and the same 
year. Historical Notices of ^^Banking Institutions and Insurance Offices" 
Mr. Webster, in the spring of 1798, removed to New Haven. 

In the preface to his *^ Compendious Dictionary" published in January, 
1806, he announced to the public that he had catered on the great work 
of his life, to which his studies had been immediately directed for some 
years, that of compiling a new and complete dictionary of the English 
language. Some of the reasons for doing this, are set forth in his pub- 
lished ^^Letter to Dr, David Ramsay" Charleston, South Carolina. During 
the many years in which his attention had been turned to the subject, he 
had become deeply convinced of the need of a dictionary which, in the 
extent of its vocabulary, and the fullness of its definitions, would be com- 
mensurate with the progress of the language, as written and spoken. The 
English and the American nations had been rapidly advancing in the 
discoveries of science, in the inventions of art, in new modes of thought. 
The language had kept pace with these improvements and changes, by the 
introduction of new terms, or by the extended use of old ones. But lex- 
icography had stood still dfty years, from 1755, when Johnson's Dictionary 
was published. Mr. Webster, while he duly appreciated the difiiculty of 
the task, undertook it upon high public grounds. In the letter mentioned 
above, he remarks: " The undertaking is Herculean ; but it is of far less 
consequence to me than to my country." 

It is no easy task to collect the " winged words " we speak, and give 
them stability and form, and '* local habitation." He who would io it, 
must be not only conversant with the usages of the best speakers and best 
writers, but also with the laws which govern the structure of language in 
general, and of his own in particular. He must be acquainted, in some 
degree, with all the arts and sciences, in order to explain their terms. And 
since, in the wide field of knowledge, *' some words are budding, and some 
are falling away," he must explore that field, in order to gather the living 
and permanent, and to know when to reject the dead or the transient 


In sbort, 88 one has strikiiigly said, " a dictionary extracts and condensen 
the essence of all other books ; it holds, as in embryo, the elements of all 
things knoi^n." And then, too, in the pronunciation and orthography, there 
are many perplexing difficulties connected with divided usage, conflicting 
analogies, authorities ait variance with each other, and unsettled derivations. 
Moreover, a correct classification of the parts of speech involves the appli* 
cadon of a refined logic. Besides these. Dr. Wel^ter met with unexpected 
embarrassment in the departments of etymology. After writing through two 
letters of the alphabet, he laid aside his manuscripts, and endeavored, by a 
comparison of words having the same or cognate radical letters, in twenty 
different languages, to discover the real or probable affinities between the 
English and other languages, and thus to obtain a more correct knowledge 
of the origin and primary sense of words. In this department of lexicogra- 
phy, he labored ten years, in the careful comparison of radical words, and 
in forming a ** Synopsis of the principal words in twenty languages^ arranged 
fs classes under their primary elements or letters" After completing this 
synopsis, he proceeded to finish the work. 

During the progress of these labors, Mr. Webster, finding his resources 
inadequate to the support of his family at New Haven, removed, in 1812, 
to Amherst, a pleasant country town in Massachusetts. Here, notwith- 
standing his devotedness to his studies, he entered with his characteristic 
ardor into the literary and social interests of the place : promoted agricul- 
tural improvements, himself cultivating a few acres; represented the 
town at difiefent times injthe General Court of Massachusetts, as he had 
done New Haven in the General Assembly of Connecticut ; employed 
his influence in the establishment, first of the academy, and then of the 
coUege, of whose Board of Trustees he was president; delivered the 
address at laying the comer-stone of the first college edifice, and inducted 
the first president into office. 

In 1822, Mr. Webster returned to New Haven. In 1823, he received 
the degree of LL. D. from Yale College. In June, 1824, he sailed for 
£uro[>e, with a view to perfect his work, by consulting literary men 
abroad, and by examining standard authors, to which he could not have 
access in this country. He spent two months at Paris, in consulting rare 
works in the BihUotheque du Roi, and then went to England, where he 
remained till May, 1825. He spent several months at the University of 
Cambridge, where he had free access to the public libraries, and there he 
finished the ^^ American Dictionary" 

An edition was published, in 1828. This contained twelve thousand 
words, and between thirty and forty thousand definitions, not found in any 
preceding dictionary. An edition was soon after published in England. 
In 1841, another edition was published in this country, containing, with 
those in the addenda, about eighteen thousand additional words. 

Of the merits of that dictionary, it does not fall within the limits of this 
notice to speak. It is sufficient to say, that in the estimation of those 
best qualified, both in this country and in Europe, to form a correct judg- 
ment, It has taken the same place at the head of English lexicography 
which Johnson's gVeat work took ninety years ago. With the excellencies 
of that work, it unites other excellencies, corresponding with the advanced 
state of philology, and the progress of the Anglo-Saxon race 

' mmuooL 

Besides his principal productions, above mentioned, there are ninneroas 
others to be included in a complete list of his writings. 

Dr. Webster loved truth in all its manifestations, whether in science or 
art, whether in politics and history, or in morals and religion. Though 
absorbed for years in the study of language, he lost none of his interest ia 
the objects to which it^ applied; for he still remembered that *Mhings 
are the sons of Grod, and that words are the daughters of men." He had 
hat ardent thirst for knowledge which is the true scholar's moving power ; 
his prompted him to his investigations, and sustained him in their progress. 
When an opinion was proposed, he never so much as asked whether it 
was neWf or whether it was old; but his constant and only inquiry was. is 
it true ? And how great was his gratification, when successful in his 
search after truth, we may learn from his own statement : *' While engaged 
in composing my dictionary, I was often so much excited by the discor- 
eries I had made, that my pulse, whose ordinary action is scarcely sixty 
beats to the minute, was accelerated to eighty or eighty-five." As he 
welcomed truth in all forms, so he dared to introduce it to the worid, trust- 
ing that it would win its way to the confidence of others. And if, delving 
in the mine of original investigation, he sometimes threw up to the light 
masses of truth too large to enter immediately into general circulation, he 
had the satisfaction of knowing that there were those who undei^tood its 
value. Indeed, be often had the gratification to see many tniths become 
current, which, at their first presentation, were rejected. And if, in the 
progress of his investigations, continued for so many years, he found 
reason to change an opinion, he had the magnanimity to make the recanta- 
tion as public as the avowal. 

Equally remarkable was his love of virtue. His sensibility was easily 
moved, either by what is right in conduct, on the one hand, or by what is 
wrong, on the other. Ho could not speak of moral distinctions with 
indifiference. His heart, his voice, his pen, and his conduct were always 
on the side of virtue, and order, and religion. As a lover of the human 
race, of his country, of his friends, of his God, no man could better dis- 
charge the various duties of his station, or dispense, with a more winning 
grace, all the sweet charities of life. In his last years, he had good 
health, an unimpaired mind, and 'Hhat which should accompany old age, as 
honor, love, troops of friends." In his last days, he enjoyed the hopes of 
the gospel. Death took him not by surprise. When, after a short illness, 
the announcement of his approaching dissolution was made to him, ^* I am 
ready," was his simple and sublime reply. He met the King of Terrors, 
saying, " I know in whom I have believed ; I have no doubts, no fears " 
He died on the 28th of May, 1843, in the eighty-fifth year of his age. 

But he will long be remembered by many, as the youthful soldier, who 
was ready, if need be, to pour out his blood and his life together for the 
land of his birth ; as the thoughtful politician, who early devi^d a scheme 
for uniting the states under a Constitution, such as the country now enjoys; 
as the grateful citizen, who gallantly sprang to the defense of Washington, 
when factious men rose up against him ; as the laborious lexicographer, 
who throws a strong and steady light upon the English language ; as the 
Christian moralist, '' who taught millions to read, but not one to sin." 




1. 7\rmmatums in oar changed vUo or. — Such words as favors lobar, 6cc,, formerly 
ending in our, drop the u. One word, however, is here given in both ways, viz., Sav- 
ior, Sovwur, 

2. 7)mninations in ck, changed into c. — ^Words of more than one syllable, ending 
in tc or iac, which formerly ended in k, have dropped the k, as in music, maniac, &c. 
Add to these almanac^ sandarac, limbec, (from alembic;) also havoc The k is retained 
(i) in a few derivatives, as colicky, Iraficker, mimicking, 6cc., to prevent an erroneoos 
pronunciation ; (3) in all moDOsyllables, as sick, slick, 6cc., and hence in their com- 
poonds, as candlestick, &c. ; (3) in all other terminations except ic and iac, as in 
arrack, Set, 

3. TkrmuuUions in re changed into er. — Sach words as centre, nutre, Ace, with their 
compounds, have the re changed into er, as center, meter, 6cc. Some hundreds of words 
like chamJber^ dd^, diameter, &c, have already undergone this change, which is here 
extended to about twenty more, to complete the anaTogv. Acre^ nwssacre^ and chan- 
cre are necessarily excepted, because the change woold lead to an erroneous pronun- 
ciation. The above words, however, are here given in both modes of spelling. 

4. Words in which the Final Consonant is not doubled in adding such Formalives as 
ing, ed, er, Ace. It is a rule extending to many hundreds of cases, that, in adding to 
a word such fonnatives as ing, ed, er, dec, a single consonant at the end of a wora is 
doubled when the accent falls on the last syllable, as in forgetting, beginning 4 but is 
not doubled when the arrent falls on any preceding st/UaUe, as in benefiting, garMner, Ace. 
This rule has been violated in the case of about fifty words ending in /, whose deriv- 
atives have had the / doubled, as traveller, &c. These words are here restored to their 
true analogous spelling, as recommended by Walker, Lowth, Perry, and others, as in 
traveling, canceled^ levder, counselor, duelist, marvelous, dec. On the same principle, 
woolen is spelled with a single /. It does not interfere with this rule that chancellor, 
and the derivatives of wte/aTand crystal, as metalUne, metallurgy, crystalline, crystaUize^ 
kc, have the I doubled, since they come directly from the L^tin cancellarius and m«- 
ktUum, and the Greek ir^rcXXof . The above rule is also applied to the derivatives of 
worship and Ifias, making them worshiping, worshiped, worshiper, biasing, biased. Bigoted 
has already taken its true spelling with bat one t, and such should be the spelling 
of carbureted^ stdphureted-, &c. 

5. Distinction between Verbs in ize and ise. — Verbs from the Greek if«, and others 
formed in analogy with them, have the termination ize, as baptize, legiUize, Ace. Cat- 
echise and exorcise are exceptions. Verbs, and also some nouns, derived directly from 
the French, with a few from other sources, end in ise^ as advertise, advise, affranchise, 
amortise, chastise, circumcise, comprise, compromise^ criticise, demise, despise, devise, dis» 
franchise, disguise, divertise, emprise, enfranchise, enterprise, exercise, manumise, merchan- 
dise, misprise, (to mistake,) premise, reprise, (to take again,) revise, supervise, surmise, 

6. TWrninations in able. — Able, when incorporated into words ending with silent e, 
cuts it off, as in blamaU^, except after c or g, as in noticeable, changeable. 

7. Compounds of teords entiing in U. — Such compounds as befall, miscaU, install, fitre- 
staU, inthraU, enroll, retain the double I. to prevent a false pronunciation, befal, enrol, 
&c. For the same reason, double I snould be retained in the nouns iustaUment, in- 
thrallment, thralldn^^, and enrallmjent. 

8. Defense, offpuse, and pretense. — In these words, s is substituted for e, because 5 is 
used in the derivatives, as ffefensive, offensive, pretension. The words expense, recom- 
pense, and licensf have, on this ground, undergone the <^me alteration M^ithin compar- 

lii EEMABK8. 

ati^ely a short period, and a change in the three mentkmed abore, would complete 
the analogy. 

9. ForeUU, disHU^ inttiU^fidfil,— These words retain the U of their primitives, for it 
most be retained in the participles and other derivatives, as/oretelhngt disiilkr, &c. 
In this case it is only necessary to remember the rale, that the spelling of the origi- 
nal words, tellf still, Jill, is retamed in all the derivatives. 

10. Canneclum^ deJlecHonf inflection^ reJlecHon. — These follow the spelling of their 
verbs, connect, &c. 

11. Derivatives ofduU^ skiU, will, and /«fl.— These retain the fl, as duUness, fiUlness, 
skillfuL willful, to prevent the inconvenience of exceptions to a general rule. Walker 
says, there is no reason why we should not write dullness, fullness, skiUful and wiUfuX, 
as well as stiffness, grufiness, and crossness. 

12. Derivatives ^ villain. — The derivatives of villain ought to retain the i, as in 
mllavnofts, villaini/, Sec. This is the case in all similar words when the ain is not un- 
der the accent^ as mountainous from mountain, captaincy from captain, dec. 

13. Mould and moult. — These words should be written mdd and nwU, like gold, boid, 
fold, colt, 6cc., in which the u has been dropped or was never introduced. 

14. Woe. — This word takes the final e, like doe, foe, hoe, sloe, toe, and all similar 
nouns of one syllable. The termination in o belongs among monosyllables to the 
other parts of speech, as^o, so, and to nouns of more than one syllable, as matto, potato, 
tomato, dec. 

15. Practice, as a Verb. — This verb should be spelled like the noun, with a c, as 
in notice, apprentice, and all similar words in which the accent precedes the last sylla- 
ble. The (ustinction of spelling between the noun and verb belongs properly to words 
accented on the last syllable, as device, n., devise (pronounced de-vlze',) v. To apply 
the distinction here, and spell the verb practise, tends to give it the same pronuncia- 
tion {practize,) as we oAen find in uneducated persons. 

16. Drouth is given as spelled by Spenser, Bacon, &c., and as still extensively 
pronounced; and hight as spelled by Muton, and derived from high. They are, how- 
ever, placed under drought and hnght, the more ordinary spelling, though, on some 
accoimts, the old spelling is to be preferred. 


1. improper Diphthongs. — In these, the vowel which is sounded is alone marked, as 
In fti, ea or eft, on, Ace. 

S. Double Accent ("). — This is used in two cases: (1) When in such words as an'^- 
ger (pronounced ang^ger), the g is, as it were, drawn back to the preceding syllable, 
rormmg with n the sound of n^, while it is also retained with its proper hard sound in 
its own syllable. Thus the distinction is marked between such words as lon"ger, of 
neater length, and long'er, one who longs. (8) When, in the case of e or i followed 
by ei or ti, we socmd oi sh is drawn back to the preceding syllable, as in spe^'cial, dis- 
creation, addi^'tion, vi"cious, (pronounced spesh'al, diskresh^un, addish'un, vishlis.) 
The double accent is also used when the sound of zh is drawn back, as in transif'' 
turn, vi"sion, (pronounced transizh'un, vizb'un) ; but this peculiarity is also indicated 
either by respelling or by the marked •. When the single accent (/) and double. ac- 
cent \*') both occur on the same word, the former is to be considerea the primary and 
the latter the secondary accent, as in cheese'mon''ger. 

3. VoweU in Italics. — ^Vowels which are italicized are not sounded, as the a in met- 
al, the e in us<rd, hazel, burden, the i in evil, cousm, the o in beckon, 6cc. 

4. Accented Syllables. — When an accented syllable ends in a consonant, the vowel 
which it contains has its regular short or shut sound, unless otherwise denoted ac- 
cording to the key. 

5. Unaccented SyUaUes. — When an unaccented syllable a vowel other than 
e mute, this vowel has an obscure or faint sound, unless otherwise marked. The ob- 
scure a is usually the short Italian a, as in America. The obscure e, i, and y, have 
the open sound of e shortened, as in event, labial, dutj; and hence, in respelling ibr 
pronnnciah'on, thei e is used .o denote these sounds. . The obscure o and u nave their 



regrolar open sounds, bat somewhat shortened, as in nu^nopoly, educate. When the 
unaccented syllable ends in a coosoDant, the vowel which it contains, if single, has 
Us regalar short or shut soond, as in assign, explain, farnish, c^mnective, c^iimny. 
Bat a in monarchy and such words, is the taint d. In neither of these cases should 
the sound of the other vowels (a, <r, », a, y) run into that oft* in ti*b. 

6. Limg a Ufore r. — The long sound of o before r in the same syllable, as heard in 
fore, pair, parent, bear, 6cc., is nearly the same as in fate ; or, more exactly, it begins 
with the latter sound, and ends with the faint sound of e or a. In this case, however, 
the a should never be made a distinct syllable, Hl^er, pSy'rent, but f^re» Ace. So 
preofer^ though spelled in tw9 syllables, should be pronounced in one, as prfire. By 
many, however, the first part of this compound sound is entirely omjtteo, and the a 
in fore, &c., is pronounced like the a in lot, but much lengthened in quantity. This, 
according to Smart and ail the later orthoepists, as well as Walker, is a departure 
firom trae English usage. ^ 

7. Italian a. — The sound of a in far, daunt, Ace, and its sound in fast, pant, Ace, 
being radically the same, is represented by the same character, a. Yet in words like 
last, clasp, ask, pass, waft, path, pant, &c., the sound is not so much prolonged as in 
fizr; and in such words as dance, advantage, it is shortened still more, and by some 
is changed into the sound of a in fat 

8. Broad a. — The distinction between the broad a (a) or aw, and the same sound 
shortened T^,) as in what. Is readily perceived. In some words, however, as salt, co- 
balt, Ace, toe a i^not so broad as in all, nor so short as in what ; but in respect to this 
nicer distinction the ear must decide. ** 

9. Skofi e before r. — The sound of short e before r at the end of a word,^)r followed 
by another consonant than r, as in confi?r, perform, herd, earth, Ace, is nearly the same 
as that of short u before r ; but some, particularly in England, attempt in this case to 
give the e itk regular short sound, as oeard in herald, herring. The same remarks 
may be made respecting ir, to which some attempt, in such words as virgin, mirth, 
Ace, to give the regular sound of short e and r. 

10. /^4rrt o. — The shut sotmd of before r in the same syllable, as in nor^ being un- 
avoidably the same as that of g, is not marked with any distinctive character. A 
sound intermediate in length between that of a in all and of in not is heard in such 
words as off, s<^t, s^ng, cbth, loss, frost, Ace Here, however, a drawl is carefully to 
be avoided. 

11. Long VL — The long or open sound ofu has been considered by many as a diph- 
thong composed of e or y and 00. Dr. Webster regarded it, in most cases, as a pecul- 
iar vowel sound nearly resembling e and 00, but so much closer as to be hardlv a diph- 
thong; and considered it as sounded yoo only when it begins a syllable, or when it is 
heard in certain terminations, as in ure. Ace There is a strong tendency, which ought 
to be carefully avoided, to change this sound into 00 afler ^, t, /, n, and s, as doo^ for 
dH'ty, ^e ; but in avoiding this, as Smart remarks, the u must be kept very close, 
and not run into dyuty or de^u^. Walker sotmds u like 00 after r ; but even here, the 
best speakers, in Dr. Webster's view, give a slight soflening between the vowel and 
the consonant, pronouncing rude in a less broad and open manner than rood, i. e., giv- 
ing the ii its distinctive sound. 

13. RespeOin^ for Pronu7tciation.—(l) In respelling the French en, on. Ace, the let- 
ters ng are desired simply to mark tne vowel as nasaly and are not to be pronounced 
themselves. (2) The respelling of a word, when a number of related words follow, 
applies to all of them down to some other word which is respelled. (3) Compound 
words, which are not respelled or otherwise marked, are to be pronounced like the 
siniple words of which they are composed; but 0/ and with at the end of compounds, 
MM itrmf^ MtrewUAj have their final consonants sounded as in doff, smiU.
