It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject

Within the last thirty years, many improTements have been made in 
the education of youth ; particularly in common schools, in which are 
taught the branches of learning necessary for the yeomanry of the country. 
Among these improvements may be numbered the books which assist 
children in acquiring a correct knowledge of our native language. For 
want however of a suitable Dictionary for common schools, the list of 
books, necessary in a system of instruction, has hitherto been incomplete. 
The English Pocket Dictionaries are all imperfect. Some of them contain 
obscene and vulgar terms, improper to be repeated before children ; others 
abound with obsolete words, or terms of art, which are of no use to com- 
mon people ; some of them are extremely faulty in the manner of marking 
the accent, making no distinction between the long and short vowels ; all 
of them contain some words not used in this country, or not in the same 
sense as in Great-Britam ; and what is very important, all of them are 
defident in a multitude of words, which are sanctioned by the best usage* 

Our language is English ; but it is a fact, proved by history and admitted 
by the learned, that two nations, proceeding from die same ancestors, but 
established in distant countries, cannot long preserve a perfe^ sameness of 
language. From the diversity of objects in different clunates ; from differ- 
ences in government and in modes of life ; from continual improvements 
in arts which give existence to different artificial objects in different nations ; 
from accidental changes which no efforts can restrain, or from other phy>s- 
ical and moral causes which can be neither controlled nor defined ; new 


terms will be added to a living language, nvith new appiicatioiis ot' old 
terms ; while some dialectical variations in oral" utterance will inevitably 
vary the spoken language of remote nations. 

The Compendious Dictionary which I published the last year, being 
intended to comprehend a complete vocabulary of English words now in 
use, with brief definitions, forms a convenient book for the daily use of 
adults ; but is rather too expensive for common schools ; and contains 
many difiScult terms of science, with which common readers of English 
have no concern. It is believed that an abridgement of that work, contain- 
ing all the words which conmion people have occasion t6 use, and sold at 
a less price, will be well received by the great body of farmers and 
mechanics in the United States. Every family and every child in school 
has occasion for such a Dictionary. 

In consulting the convenience of purchasers, I have not, however, pro- 
ceeded so far in reducing the size and price, as to sacrifice the essential 
benefits of a Dictionary, by omitting a great number of legitimate words 
of |k>pular use. To retrench words of common use, with a view to render 
a book cheap, is not to consult the real interest of the purchaser ; but 
rather to defraud him. A Dictionary ought not to be an imperfect vocab- 
ulary ; nor can any work of this sort contain much less than thirty thousand 
words, without the omission of terms which are in daily use. I have 
endeavored, by steering between extremes, to reconcile the interest of 
the purchaser's purse, with the advantages of a tolerably complete 

It is very desirable that a uniform orthography may prevail among the 
citizens of the United States. This can never be the case, while they use 
a variety of English books, which tio not agree in spelling and pronuncia- 
tion. Johnson's orthography, which some compilers follow, has been, in 
several classes of words, corrected by modern writers ; as by the omission 
of w in error, candor, superior ; and k in public, music, kc. I have extended 
this correction to all the words of these classes, with a view to uniformity ; 


and hav« corrected a few other palpable errors in tlie common orthography. 
The mode pursued in Great-Britain of deciding questionable points by the 
practice of modem writers, is liable to a serious objection, that it furnishes 
no standard of right and wrong. Authorities equally respectable for dif- 
ferent modes of spelling may be cited without end; leaving the inquirer 
unsatisfied, and the real truth undiscovered. I have adopted a different 
mode of deciding doubtful questions of this sort, and by tracing out the 
radical words and primitive spelling, have endeavored to ascertain the real 
orthography. By pursuing this principle, we arrive at a point which cannot 
be disputed ; thus gradually settling controversies and purifying our language 
from many corruptions introduced by ignorance or negligence, during the . 
confusion of languages under the first Norman princes. Without recurring 
to the originals, in the manner here stated, it is impossible, I apprehend, to 
adjust the orthography of many words in the language, or to purify it from 
numerous barbarisms. 

Those who consult this Dictitoary will find it to contain a multitude of 
legitimate words, which are not inserted in any similar book, and the 
definitions of many others improved in perspicuity and precision. Another 
valuable improvement, is, the separation of the words beginning with 
/and /, and with' U and F, an advantage not Tiossessed by any British 



a. stands for adjective or attrilmte. 

ad, for adverb. 

n. fior noun or name. ' 

pi\ for preposition. 

pret. for preterit 

pron, for pronoon. 

pa. for participle. 

V. stands for verb, when the verb may 
be used transitively or intransitiTely. 
V. t. for veib transitive. 
V. I. for verb intransitive. 
conj. for conjunction. 
exclatn, for exdamation. 
ob. for obsolete. 

Local usages are noted by the first letters in the names of the States, -where they pre- 
vul ; as Jkma^. for Massachusetts, Con. for Connecticut, Perm, for Pennsylvania, %tc. 


When a vowel has the accent over it, its sound is long, as in v6cal, reUte, rediice, brfgjbtcn. 

When the accent is placed after a consonant, the preceding vowel is shcnt, as in 
haVit, cus^tom, amend', abhor^renoey abrupt', cylinder. 

When the accented syllable contains a digraph or a dipthongal sound, tlie sound being 
indicated with sufficient clearness by the letters, the accent is place<l at the end of the 
syllable, as in reneV, rejoice', destro/, devour', witlidraw'. The accent has the same 
position when a has its fourth Ibund as in oak, thus, countermand', disarm'. 

When the pronunciation of a Word is very different from that which liie letters natu- 
rally indicate it is expressed by a different orthography. 

Ch have tneir Enetish sound, as in church, unless a different pronunciation is noted. 

The sound tXg before e and t bein^ reducible to no general rule, it is to be remarked 
that ir retains its soft sound like j, as m geiteral^ unless ue contraiy ii noted. 

Whenever a direction is given concemine the pronunciation of a radical word, let 
the direction be considered as axtending to all the derivatives. Thus g being hard in get 
and groCf remains an in fergely forgive, fiw. The learner being directed to pronounce 
I'ougn, n^ will extend tlie rule to rottghly and roughnen. 

Italic letters are silent, as in bread, earth. 

A double accent thus, Io"gic, ma"gie, a"cid, denotes that the sound of the succeeding 
consonant belongs to the first syllable, c and g in «uch cases being soft, as Iqjjic, majjic, 
assld. Pou"tion is pronounced potMnm. 

When a verb ends in a single consonant accented, the consonant is doubled in the parti- 
ciple and some other derivatives, thus, admits admUtmg, admittable^'-'abeff abetted. So 
also in monosyllables, as pen, penning, penned. 

It is needless to give very minute uirections fcH* pronunciation ; for in regular words, 
which are nine-tenths of the whole number, the accent alone is sufficient to teach the 
pronunciation. The accent being laid on the right syllable and letter, and Hie accented 
vowel correctly pronounced, the pronunciation of the unaccented vowels is extremely 
easy ; so easy indeed, that it is more difficult to be wrong than right 

^ uk my spelling book, the words of irregular pronunciation are classed in tables, with 
directions how tney are to be pronounced. The tables and directions are few and simple ; 
and if children are fully instructed in them, as they ought to be, they will have overcome 
^be chief di^cultics which occur in learning the pronunciation.
