HAVING been long employed in the ftudy and cultivation 
of the English language, I lately publiflicd a Diftionary 
like thofc compiled by the academics or Italy and France, for the 
ofc of fuch as afpire to exa&nefsof criticifm, or elegance of ftyle. 

Bat it has been fines confidcred that works of that kind are by 
bo means neceffary to the greater number of readers, who, feldom 
intending to write, or prefuming to judge, turn over books, only 
toanrafc their leifure, and to gain degrees of knowledge fuitable 
to lower characters, or neceffary to the common bufinefs of life : 
thefc know not any other ufe of a Dictionary than that of adjur- 
ing orthography, and explaining terms of fciencc or words of in- 
frequent occurrence, or remote derivation'. 

For rJiefc purpofes many Dictionaries have been written by 
different authors, and with different degrees of fkill ; but none 
of tbcm have yet fallen into my hands by which even the lowelt 
ezpefiations could be fatisfied. Some of their authors wanted 
indnftry, and others literature : fome knew not their own defefis, 
and others were too idle to fupply them. 

For this reafon a fmall Dictionary appeared yet to be wanting 
to common readers ; and, as I may without arrogance claim to 
myfelf a longer acquaintance wiih the lexicography of our lan- 
guage than any other writer has had, I (hall hope to be confider- 
ed as having more experience at lca(t than mod of my predeccf- 
fon, and as more likely to accommodate the nation with a voca- 
bulary of daily, ufe. I therefore offer to the Public an Abftracr 
or Epitome of my former work. 

In comparing this with other Dictionaries of the fame kind, it 
will be found to have fevcral advantages. 

I. It contains many words not to be found in any other. 
U. Many barbarous terms and phrafes by which other Dio 
nonarics may vitiate the Style, are rejected from this. 

P R E F A C E. 

III. The words are more corre&Iy fpellcd, partly by attention 
to their etymology, and partly by obfervation of the practice o J 
the beft authors. 

XV. The etymologies and derivations, whether from foreign 
languages, or from native roots, are more diligently traced, and 
more diftinflly noticed. 

V. The fenfes of each word are more copioufly enumerated, 
and more clearly explained. 

- VI. Many words occurring in the elder authors, fneh as Spen- 
fcr, Shakefpeare, Milton, which had been hitherto omitted, are 
here carefully inferted ; fo that this book may ferve as a glofiary 
or expofirory index to the poetical writers. 

VII. To the words, and to the different fenfes of each ward, 
are fubjoioed from, the large Dictionary the names of thofe wri* 
ters by whom they have been ufed ; fo th?t the readerwho knows 
the different periods of the language, and the time of its authors, 
may judge of the elegance" or prevalence of any word, or mean- 
ing of a word ; and without recurring to other books, may know 
what are antiquated, what are unufual, and what ate recommend- 
ed by the beft authority. 

The words of this Dictionary, as'oppofed to others, are more • 
diligently cohefted, more accurately fpellcd, more faithfully ex- 
plained, and more authentically afcertamed. Of an Abflraft it is 
sot necefiary to fay more ; and I hope it will not be found that 
truth requires me to fay left.

(ra long tablet of words pronounced other- 
*i than they are written, and feem' not fuf- 
tdcadf to have conGdercd, that of the Knglifh 
■ J ill living tongue* there it a double pro- 
Ruatiun, one enribry and colloquial, the o- 
(kn rrrular and foleiau. The Carforv pro. 

nnnciation ia alwaya va^ile and uncertain, being 
made different in different mouth) by negli- 
gence, unfkilfulnefs, or affeflauoa. Thefolemu 
pronunciation, though hv no mean* immutable 
and permanent, ia yet alwaya lefa remote from 
the orthography, and left liable » capricious 
innovation. They have however generally 
formed their table? aecordini; to the curfory 
fpeech of thofe with whom they happened to 
:oBverfe ; and concluding that the whole Da- 
language ia one man 

lowefl of rhe people at the model of Tpeech. 

For pronunciation the hell general rule is, to 
confider thofe aa the inofl elegant fpeakera, who 
deviate Irall from the written words. 

There have been many febemea offered for the 
emendation am dfttdi merit of our orthography, 
which Ukethat of other nations, heing formed 
by chance, or according to the fancy of the ear- 
Left writers in rude agei, was at fij-ll very va- 
rious and uncertain, and ia yet fuffideniiy irre- 
gular. OftheleTeformerilbnirhave endeavour- 
ed to accommodate orthogra, y better to the 
pronunciation, without confideriiig that thii ia 
to meafure by a lhadow, to take that for a mo- 
del or ftandard which ia changing while they 
apply it. Others, lefa ahfurdly indeed, but with 
equal unIikelihood*ffueceli, have endeavoured 
to proportion the number of lettera Co that of 
founds, that every found may have ita own 
charaeler.and every character a bugle found. 
Such would be the orthography of a new lan- 
guage to be formed by a fynod of grammarian* 
upon principles of feience. But who can hope 
to prevail on nation* to change their practice, 
and make all their old hooka ufclefs 1 or what 
advantage would a new orthography procure 
equivalent to the confuuon and perplexity of 
fuch an alteration.

One of the firfi who propofed a fcheme of

fecretary of Date to Quec* Eliiabcth, a man of
