Isr this DfCTioxA&Y, as in all the other books which have come foith from under my 
hands, I hare endeavoured to make the matter as clear as possible ; that being, in roy 
opinion, the first quality in literary works of all sorts, seeing that it is of no use to write, 
unless that which you write be understood ; and seeing that the less trouble the reader 
has to get at your meaning, the more likely he is to get at it, and, of course, the more likely 
he is to profit from your labours, 

I have not made a book for literary men ; for persons curious with re^Bfard to the origin 
of words, or with regard to great niceties in the use of them ; but, for persons who want 
to get at a competent knowledge of the meaning of words, and of that word, in one of 
these languages, which amounts to the same meaning in the other language ; and this end 
1 have endeavoured to enable the reader to accomplish with as little trouble as possible ; 
avoiding all those superfluities which only serve to waste time and to arrest the attention 
of the reader on matters foreign to the pursuit in which he is, at the moment, engaged. 

A Dictionary, abounding with etymological curiosities, with examples of the uses of 
words, with quotations from authors, and with minute peculiarities as to idioms, is, indeed, 
cot only a curious, but an amuning book : but, it is not an amimng book that we want 
here ; it is a book of nse, and, if it contain any thing to divert us from that me, it does us 
liann ; it wastes our time, and withdraws our minds from the objects immediately before 
us. This has happened to me a thousand times, I dare say. Having looked for my word, 
I have found such a fund of amusement growing out of it, that, if I were translating, for 
instance, I have not only wasted my time, but have returned to my dull work, if not 
wrfb absolute reluctance, at least with the want of the full force of those ideas with which 
1 had quitted it. If my reference to the Dictionary had given me only the word I wanted 
and its full meaning, or meanings, without any amusement, my time would have been 
saved and the spirit of my labours would have been unblunted. It is this experience 
that has been my guide in regard to the compilation of thi^t book. As in my English 
firammar and in my French and English Grammars, so in this Dictionary, I have en- 
deavoured to prevent others from experiencing the loss of time and the inconveniences 
that I myself liave had to encounter and overcome. And, were it only from the following 
circumstances, I should think that I had succeeded : no people have to resort to Diction^ 
aries so often 9S paiNTERS, and to no people can accuracy, combined wiih having of time, 
he of more importance; and my printers tell me, that this is *< the most hanov Dictionary 
that they have ever seen;*' a character of it which I should prefer before an eulogium from 
all the reviewers in the world united* 

A 2 


There are two descriptions of persons who stand in need of a Dictionary ; namely, 
those who have learned grammar thoroughly ; and those who have not. To the former the 
TABLES prefixed to the Dictionary will not be necessary ; but, to the latter, especially 
when they have to un-Ue, or to »peak, in either of the languages, these tables are absolutely 
necessary; and, if they be diligently attended to, they will, of themselves, very soon 
enable any learner of common capacity to overcome some of the greatest of those diffi- 
culties which English people meet with in the learning of French ; as will clearly appear^ 
when I have described the contents and the uses of these tables, which are six in num- 
ber, as follow : 

Table I. contains an explanation of all the Abbreviations, used in both parts 
of the Dictionary, ranged in alphabetical order; so that if the reader meet with an 
abbreviation, the meaning of which he does not understand, he has only to turn to 
this table, where he will find the explanation in the alphabetical place of the abbreviation 
itself, and directly opposite that abbreviation. For instance; in the Dictionary, after 
the word Abject, you find adj.; and opposite the abbreviation, adj., in the table, you 
find adjective; so that you thus know, that abject is an adjective. So on with regard to 
the other abbreviations ; and, with regard to the whole of them, a very short time, with 
due attention, will make you so familiar, that you will have no further need of referring 
to the table. 

Table II. relates to the Plurals of French Nouns. It is preceded by the rules 
{three in number) for forming the plural numbers of French nouns. As to the genders 
of French nouns, those are fully indicated in the Dictionary itself. This table relates 
solely to the forming of the plural numbers. First come the three rules, and then 
follows an alphabetical list of such nouns as depart from those rules. Let us take, for 
instance, the noun trou, which, according to the second rule, would, in the plural, 
be TROux; but it is not so ; it is irous, adding an s, like nouns coming under the first 
BULE. The Dictionary gives you the word in (he singular number only; the second 
rule shows you, that the word trou, being a noun ending with ou, would form its 
plural by adding an x, and not an *, to the singular; but if you look into the list that 
follows in this table, you will see that trou, although it does end in ou, takes an s, 
and not an x. There are^ as you will see, but twenty-six of these irregular nouns ; so 
that, with due attention to the table, you will have the whole of them familiar to your 
memory in a very short time ; for, the list being alphabetical, you will always find your 
word in a moment. Let us now follow the process all the way through. You are 
writing French, and, wanting to find the French word for hole, you look into the 
English part, you find the French word to be trou ; but presently you want to write 
about two or more holes, and how are you to know how to form the plural of trou ? 
Why, first look at the rule, and that will tell you, that it must become troux, because 
it ends with ou ; but before you write, look at the list of exceptions, and there you will 
find that it must be trous. On following this practice for a little while, you will find 
that the whole matter will be safely lodged in your mind. 

Table III. relates to the Number and the Gender of French Adjectives. English 
adjectives never change their endings for the purpose of denoting either the number or 
the gender of the nouns to which they belong. Far different is it witli regard to French 
adjectives : they have changes in their endings for the purpose of denoting both number 
and gender; that is to say, the noun demands an adjective agreeing with it in number and 
'u gender; and the adjective must vary to accommodate itself to the number and gender 


of its noun; thus, as to its number, un bdlon blanc (a white stick), deux bdiom blancs 
(two white sticks). Then, as to the gender; une main blanche (a white hand), deux 
vtaiiit BLANCHES (two white hands). It is, therefore, a very important part of our affair 
to learn the rules for changing the endings of the adjectives for these purposes. The 
changes for the purposes of denoting the number are not, as will be seen, numerous, and 
do not give rise to rules of any difficulty ; but, as this table and its list will show, the 
gitKder of adjectives is a thing of very great importance, and must be strictly attended to. 
In other Dictionaries of the two languages, this object is attempted to be provided for by 
ftlfbreviaiions placed against the adjectives themselves in their places in the Dictionary : 
but this has always appeared to me to be very clumsy work, causing a great waste of time ; 
and, indeed, nine times out of ten, doing nothing but puzzle the learner, and tend to dis« 
gust him with his undertaking. Let us take an example. You want to use a French 
adjective to express the meaning of the English adjective, malicious; and the English 
part of Boycr's Dictionary (and of other Dictionaries) tells you that the French word is 
MALiN. Then^ in looking at the French part, to see how this word changes to denote the 
feminine gender, you find " Mal-in, igne.'' Now, though I know that the in is to be 
added to the mal to make the masculine , and that igne is to be added to the mal to make 
the feminine, how are j/ou to know ii ? Again, you want a French adjective to answer to 
our adjective red, and you find it thus in the French part of Boyer's Dictionary :~- 
Roc-x, SSE. What is a learner to make of this? Then take our adjective sweet; and 
you fiod in the French of Boyer, ** Dou-x, ce." lie who already understands the language 
inows, tliat in these cases the x is to be added to the Rou and the Dou to make the 
mdtculine ; and that, to make the feminine, the sse is to be added to the Rou, and ce is 
to be added to the Dou ; but, how are these things to be known to him, child or man, 
who ia learning the language? One more instance. Take the adjective religieux ; and in 
Boycr's and other Dictionaries you find it thus, " Religieu-x, se." Here, again, I know, 
that, to form the masculiney I must take in the x ; and that, to form \\\% feminine, I must 
exclude the x, and take in the se. But how is a learner of language to know this ; and 
bow is it possible that it should not do that learner harm rather than good ? I have, 
therefore, in my Dictionary, given only the bare word ; that is to say, the word as it is 
found and referred to in the English part; and, of course, in the French part, the above 
three words stand thus : 

Malin, adj. malicious, malignant, mischievous, 
Roux, adj. red, red-haired, reddish. 
Doux, adj. sweet, mild, gentle, &c. 
Religieux, adj, religious, pious, devout, &c. 

And now we are to see the use of my table. You find the word Maltn, for instance ; 
you find it to be an adjective ; you want to know how it forms its plural or its feminine 
gend^ or both ; you turn to the list in Table III., and there you find that, as to the 
piurrJ, the word follows the first rule, and merely takes an j in addition ; and that it 
is, in the yemmine, malione. You proceed in the same manner with regard to boux 
and DOUX. But, when you come to religieux, you do not find it in the list. It, 
Uierefore, follows the rule : that rule is the sixth ; and, as the word ends in eu.x, yom 
will see that the rule tells you, that, to form the feminine, you must change the eux into 


And thus you proceed with regard to all other adjectives ; and, you ^will find, that, 
at the end of a month of diligent application, you will never again want to look at either 
RULES ot LIST ; Rod I am, from my own experience, convinced, tliat the method which I 


have here provided for the acquiring of this important pait of the desired knowledgCi will 
verif greatlif ihorien the work of learning French ; that it vrill save to parents many of 
those pounds which are expended in the teaching of their children that language, and, 
which is of still more consequence, lend to save them from that cruel mortification which 
arises from the children not learning the language after all. 

Table IV. relates to the forming of the Plurals of English Nouns. The Rules 
and the List of Irregulars are taken from my own English Grammar ; and they are 
so plain and so easily understood, that the French child or grown person must be dull or 
dilatory indeed, ever to commit a mistake as to this matter, after a month of application ; 
though mistakes enough, with regard to it, are often committed by English men, and by 
some men too who come from the UniversUiet ; and, if even ihet/ were just to look over 
this part of my Grammar, it would not do them any harm. 

Table V. relates to English Adjectives; that is to say, to the changes in their end- 
ings for the purpose of denoting the degrees of comparison ; for they vary not to denote 
either number or gender. This matter (coming also from my English Grammar) the 
learner will find so plainly stated as to make this part of his task a thing not to cost him 
above sixty hours in the whole. 

Table VI. English Verbs. This table contains the rules for changing the endings 
of our Verbs, and also a complete List of our Irregular Verbs. The matter is taken 
from my English Grammar ; and I venture to say, that any foreigner of ordinary capacity 
will master the whole thing in the space of ten days ; and, great is the shame, that we so 
often see Englishmen, and Gentlemen too, who write as if they had never seen, or heard, 
any thing about the matter ; a matter so easily understood, and so essential to guard them 
against committing vulgar and really disgraceful errors. 

Such are the uses of these tables, which, I verily beliere, will do more, if properly 
attended to, in teaching French to English people, and English to French people, 
than all that is to be found in all the other Introductions to Dictionaries that are in 
existence. The recurrence to these tables, which will, at first, be necessarily very fre- 
quent, will daily become less and less necessary ; and, at the end of a very short time, the 
reader will have the whole matter in his mind, will trouble himself no more about the 
tables, and will find, that he has made a considerable progress in the learning of the 
language. In conclusion, let the learner be duly warned against the danger of supposing^ 
that a foreign language is to be learned without labour ; that ii is a thing to be overcome 
by saucy looks or loud talk. It is a valuable thing : not only a great intellectual 
accomplishment and ornament, but a really valuable acquisition. Not so valuable as that 
obtained by a seven years' apprenticeship to a shoemaker, tailor, or carpenter : but, still, 
a thing of real value as a means of obtaining an honest livelihood. But, then, the lan- 
guage must be really learned ; not learned a little bit. If <' a little learning be a 
dangerous thing/* in other cases, it is still more dangerous in this case : to have a mere 
smattering of French in the one case, or of English in the other case, is not only useless, 
but a great deal worse; giving nothing but conceit, false pretensions, exciting the contempt 
of observers, producing mortification in friends, and inflicting cruel disappointment on 
parents. To young English people I particularly address myself; and exhort them, if 
they undertake the task of learning French, to labour at it assi Juously ; to attend well to 
what I have said in my Introduction to my French Grammar; to recollect that every 
hour^ of iubouT irhich they now bestow will be productive of fruit to be enjoyed to the 



last honr of tJieir lives; to bear in mind, that, if they once acquire the habit of labour 
now, ibat habit will stick by them ; and, above all things, lo bear m nnnd, that, if they 
let slip this season for labour, it will never return. 

With this advice to those who are to use the book, I send the book itself to the press 
out of that very room in which Dr. Johnson compiled his Diciionary ; not however 
without observing, that in the French a^tistance which I have had in this compilation 
and which assistance has been very great, I have, I believe, had as sound judgment and 
as great learning as were possible to be found either in England or in France.

TABLE 11. 



First Rule. — In Frenchy as well ds in En- 
glish, the plural of nouns is formed by tbe add- 
ing of an 5 to the singular ) as, Uchieu, the dog, 
Us chiens, the dogs. 

Second Ru I.e. — Nouns ending in au, eau, eu, 
au, generally fprm their plural by tuking an x 
iitsteail of an s ; as, un ckapeaut a hat, deux 
chapeauT, two hats. I have said generally t be- 
cause some of them take an < in the plural ; as, 
un cUm, a nail, dei clous, some nails. '1 hese 
exceptions will be found in the next table. 

TniRD Rule. — Nouns ending in al and ail 
change these letters into atix to form their plu- 
ral ; as, un cheval, a horse, des chevaux, some 
horses; U tracail, the work, let travaux, the 

The following nouna are exceptions to the

The four following nouns are subjected to no 
rule with regard to their plural.

FinsT Rule. — Adjectives form iheir p/ura2« 
from their singulars by taking sn s In addition, 
in the same manner that nouns do. 

Second Rule. — Adjectives ending inci in 
the »ingulur, change these two letters into aus ; 
as tgaV, general, which are tgaux, gentraux, for 
the masculine plural. 



The feminine form is given to the adjective 
by making some addition or change in the end- 
ing of it; as, petit, little, has, low. which make 
in the feminine petite, hanse. Our rules, there- 
fore, must be founded on the endiag of the pri- 
mitive adjective ; and they are as follown. 

First Rule. — All adjectives that end with 
an e mute are of both genders. They do not 
change their form on account of gender; as, ua 
homme sage, une femme sage, a wise man, a 
wise woman. 

I Second Rule. — Generally speaking, the other 
' adjectives onlv take an e mute in addition, 
to form their feminine; as, impertinent, poli, 
which are in the feminine, impertinente, polie. 
And observe, this is invariably the case with 
all adjectives ending with vowels ; Bxceptfavori, 
which makes /a{;onte in the feminine. 

Third Rule. — Adjectives ending in/ change 
the/ into ve ; as pasitif', bref, which are in the 
feminine positive, breve. 

Fourth Rule. — Adjectives ending in n, with 
an o or ie before the n, take ne in addition ; as, 
bon, aneien, which are in the feminine bonne, 
aneienne. But, if there be not an o or ie before 
tbe n, the adjectives ending in n follow the 
second rule ; that is to say, they take an e mute 
in addition ; as, Jin, vain, which are in the fe- 
minine, /ne^ vaine. 

Fifth Rule. — Adjectives ending in {, with 
e, 0, u, or «i, ie, before it, take U in addition ; 
as, cruel, vieil, officiet,fol, ^temel, which are in 
the feminine, eruelle, vieille, vffici*ile,folU, iter^ 
nelle. But if the final I be not preceded by one 
of these vowels, or by ei, ie, the adjectives end- 
ing in t follow the general rule, and simply take 
an e mute in addition ; as, fi^til, futile. One 
exception there is, however, in gentil, which 
makes gentiUe* 

Sixth Rule. — Adjectives ending in eur or 
eux change them into euse ; as, moqueur, reli' 
gieux, which are in the feminine^ mo^u€us§, reli' 

, ^ J-— 



or all those adjectives wliicb are on exception 
(0 tie rules laid down, or, wbicli are subjecled 
10 no rule at all. 

N.B. That the words marked with * are 
Nh Hdjectives and nouna ; and tbat where you 
iml t blank in tbe column, the word, iu that 
rcs[>ect, follows tbe general rule.

The singular is the original word ; and, in ge- 
neral » the plural is formed by adding an s to 
the singular; as, dog» (Ufgs. But. though the 
greater part of our nouns form their plurals 
from the singular in this simple manner, there 
are many which do not ; while there are some 
nouns which have no plural number at all, and 
some which have no singular. Therefore, con- 
sidering the above to be the First Rule, I 
shall add other rules with regard to the Nouns 
which do not follow that rule. 

The Second Rule. — Nouns, the singular 
numbers of which end in cht $h, s, or x, require 
es to be added in order to form their plural num- 
ber ; as, ehureh, churches ; brusk, bruthiu; lass, 
lasses ; for, foxes. 

The Third Rule is, that douds which end 
in y, when the y has a consonant coming imme- 
diately before it, changes the y into ies in form- 
ing their plurals ; as, quantity^ quantities. But, 
you must mind, that if the y be not immedi- 
ately preceded by a consonant, the words fol- 
low the /rs( rule, and take only an s in addition 
to their singular; as, day, days. I am the mora 
anxious to guard you against error as to this 
matter, because it is very common to see men 
of high rank and profession writing valliest vol- 
lies, correspondencies, conveniencies^ and the like, 
and yet «U these are erroneous. Correspondence 
and iticonvenience should have simply an s ; for 
they end in e, and nut in y» 

The Fourth Rule is, that nouns which end 
in a single /, or in fe, form the plural by 
changing/. or/«, into ves ; as, loaf, loaves ; wijle, 
wives. But, this rule has exceptions in the fol- 
lowing words, which follow the Jirst rule : 
dwarf, mischief, handkerchief, chief, relief, grief. 
The two last are seldom used in the plural 
number; but, as they sometimes are, 1 have 
included them. 

The Fifth Rule is, that the following nouns 
have their plural in en: man, men; woman, 
women ; ox, oxen ; child, children. And brethren 
is used sometimes as the plural o( brother. 

The Sixth Rule is, that all which nature, or 
art, or habit, has made plural, have no singular; 
as, ashes, annals, bellows, bowels, thanks, breeches, 
entrails, lungs, scissors, snuffers, longs, wages, 
ond some others. 

There are also some nouns which have no 
plural, such as those which express the quali- 

ties, or propensities, or feelings, of the mind or 
heart : as, honesty, meekness, compassion. There 
are, further, several names of herb.*, metals, mine- 
rals, liquids, and of fleshy substances, which have 
no plurals ; to i\-hich may be added the nnmes 
of almost all sorts of grain. There are excep- 
tions here ; for, while wheat has no plural, oats 
have seldom any singular. But all these words, 
and others which are irregular in a similar war, 
are of such very common use, that you will 
hardly ever make a mistake in applying them ; 
for I will not suppose it possible to fall into 
either the company or the language of those 
persons who talk, and even write, about bar' 
leys, wheals, clovers, flours, grasses, and malts. 

There remain to be noticed, however, som^ 
words, which are too irregular in the forming 
of their nlurals to be brought under any dis- 
tinct head even of irregularity. I will, there- 
fore, insert these as they are used in both num- 
bers. ' 

SiognUr. Plural, 

die, dice. 




















The adjectives have no changes to express 
number, gender or case; but, they have changes 
to express degrees of comparison. As adjectives 
describe the qualities and properties of nouns, 
and as these may be possessed in a degree higher 
in one case than in another, the adjectives have 
degrees of comparison ; that is to say, clianges 
in their endings, to suit these varying circum- 
stances. A tree may be high, but another may 
be higher, and a third may be the highest. Adjec- 
tives have, then, these three degrees : the first 
degree, or rather, the primitive word, is called 
the Poiitive i the second, the Comparative ; the 
third, the Superlative, For the forming of these 
degrees I shall give you four rules ; and, if you 
pay strict attention to these rules, you will need 
be told very little more about this part of 

First Rule, Adjectives in general, which end 
in a consonant, form their comparative degree 
by adding er to the positive, and form their su- 
perlative degree by adding est to the positive : 


Rich, Richer, Richest. 



Setmd Rule. Adjectives ^bich end in «, 
add, in formiDg their comparative, only an r, 
atid in forming their soperlHtive, st : as, 


Wise, Wiser, Wisest. 

Thled Rule. When the positive ends in (2,^. 
or (, and irhen these consonants are at the 
i4ma time preceded by a single vittcelt the con- 
soaant is doubled in forming the comparative 
kod superlative ; as, 


Redder, Ueddest. 

Bigger, Biggest. 

Hot, Hotter, Hottest. 

But, if the d, g, or t, be preceded by another 
toD>onant, or by more than one vowel, the final 
rjDsonant is not doubled in the forming of the 
iro latter degrees : as,

Neat, Neater, Neatest.

preceded by a consonant, the y changes to ie in

M irregular 










some adjectives which can be re* 
rule, and which must be considered 
: as, 


Better, Best. 

Worse, Worst. 

Less, Least. 

More, Most. 

Some adjectives can have no degrees of com- 
pirisoo, because their signification admits of no 
wpnsfltation : as, allt each, every, anu* several, 
^'7, kfmi ; and all the numerical a<ijectives : 
u, one, two, three; first, second, third, 

AiJjeciives which end inmo^f, are superlative, 
acd admit of no change : as, utmost, uppermost. 

Howerer, you will observe, that all adjectives 
vhich admit of comparison, may form their 
degrees by the use of the words more and must : 


Rirh, More rich, IVIost rich, 

reader, More tender, Most tender. 

When the positive contains but one syllable, 
^^< degrees are usually formed by adding to the 
positive according to the four rules. When the 
pojitirs contains ttco syllables it is matter of 
^stf which method you shall use in forming 
tH« degrees. The ear is, in this case, the best 
pude. But, when the positive contains more 
ihtn tKo sylUMet, the degrees must be formed 
^ the use of more and most. We may say ten- 
^ and tenderest, pleasanter and pleasantest, 
frrtiitr aod prettiest; but who could tolerate 
*<^tr ind delicatest ? 




Verbs are called re«;ular, when they hsve 
their cban;;es or variations according to a cer- 
tain rule or manner. Thus : *' 1 waUc,! walked ; 
1 fcork, I tcorked." But, I cannot say, " 1 
writed." I must say, ** I wrote," Now, ob- 
serve, that we call regular verbs all those which 
end their past time of the indicative and their 
passive participle in ed ; and, if you now look 
back at the conjugation of the verb to work, you 
will find that that is a regular verb. Indeed, 
this is the case with almost all our verbs. But, 
there are some little irregularities even here, 
and they must be very well attended to, because 
a want of attention to them leads to very great 
errors even as to spelling. 

These little irregularities I shall notice under 
five separate heads ; and, if ynu should forget, 
at any time, what has been said on the subject, 
a reference to these will, in a moment, set you 
right. — I. The verb to wotk is perfectly regular, 
for it, has ed added to it. in order to form the 
past time, and uUo in order to form the pas- 
five participle. It is the same with the verbs 
to walk, to turn, to abandon, and numerous 
others. But, if the infinitive, that is to say, the 
primitive or original word, end in e, then d only 
is added, in the past time and participle, and st 
instead o^est after Thou : as, in the case of to 
move, which becomes moved and movest. You 
hav« seen, also, in the case of the verb to work, 
that we add only «n s to form the third person 
singular of the present of the indicative : he 
works. But if ihe infinitive end in h, s, x, or s, 
then es must be added ; as, to wish, he wishes ; 
to toss, he tosses : to box, he boxes ; to buzz, he 
buzzes, — n. When the infinitive ends iny, and 
when that y has a consonant immediately before 
it, the 1/ is changed into ie to form the tiiird 
person singular of the present of the indicative: 
as, to reply, he replies. But, (and 1 beg you to 
mark it well,) if the ending 1/ have a vowel im» 
mediately be/ore it, the verb follows the general 
rule, in the formation of the third person sin- 
gular of the present of the indicative: as, to 
delay, he delays ; and not he delates. It is the 
s-.tnie in the second person singular : as, to reply 
thou repliest; to delay, thou delayest. — 11*1, 
When the infinitive ends iny, with a consonant 
immediately before it, the past time of the in- 
dicative and the passive participle are formed 
by using an i instead of the 1/ ; ai, to reply, he 
replied ; to deny, it teas denied. But, if the y 
be preceded by a vowel, ed is added to the y in 

the usual manner: ts, to delay, he delayed. 

IV. The active participle, which always ends in 
ing, is, in ^neral, formed by simply adding the 
ing to the infinitive ; as, to work, working ; to 



talk, talking. But, if tbe iufinitivo ends in a 
single «, the « is dro|>ped : as to mavey moving. 
The verb to be is an exception to this ; but, then 
that is an irregular verb. It is when the infini- 
tive ends in a single e, mind; for, if the e be 
double, the general rule i» followed : as, to free, 
J'reeing. When the influiiive ends in it, those 
letJers ore chnnged into v in the forming of the 
active participle ; ns, to' lie, bfing.—V. When 
the infinitive ends in a single consonant, which 
bus a single voivel immediatelif before it, the final 
consonant is doubled, not only in forming the 
active participle, but also in forming the past 
time of the indicative, and the passive par- 
ticiple; as, to rap, rapping; I rapped, it was 
rapped. But, observe well, this rule holds 
^ood only as to words of one syllable ; for, if the 
infinitive of the verb have more than one syl- 
lable, the consonant is not doubled unless the 
accent be on the lust syllable; and the accent 
means the main force, or weight, or sound of 
the voice in pronouncing the word. For in- 
stance, in the woid to open, the accent is on the 
Jirst syllable ; and, therefore, we write opening, 
opened. But, when we come to the verb to 
refer, where we find the accent on the last 
syllable, we write referring, referred. 

These irregularities, though very necessary to 
be attended to, do not prevent us from consider- 
ing the verbs, which are subject to them, as 
regular verbs. The mark of a regular verb, is, 
that its pa^t lime and passive participle end in ed: 
everyverb, which does not answer to this mark, 
is irregular. 

There are many of these irregular verbs, of 
which 1 shall here insert a complete list. All 
the irregularilies(exce|)t the little irregularities 
just mentioned) which it is possible to find in 
an English veib (the auxiliary verbs exct'pted) 
are in the past tiz/ie and the passive participle on\y. 
Therefore, it will be sufficient to give a List, 
showing, in those two instances, what are the 
irregularities of each verb : and, in order to 
render this List convenient, and to shorten the 
work of referring to it, I shall make it alpha- 
betical. With the past time of the several verbs 
I shall use the first person singular of the pro- 
noun, in order to make my examples as clear as

The greater part of these verbs have become 
irregular by the bad practice of abbreviaiing or 
shortening, in writing. We are always given 
to cut our words short ; and, with very few 
exceptions, you find people writing lov'd, mnv*d, 
walked ; instead of loved, moied, walked. They 
wish to make the pen correspond with the 
tongue ; but they ought not then to write the 
word (fie at full length, nor the word rf, noy 



any other little word ; for scarcely ever are 
these words fully iounded in speaking. From 
lov*d, mov'd, walkedt it is very easy to slide 
into lovt, movt, toaUct. And this has been the 
case with regard to cursf, dealtf dwelt, leapt, 
helpt, and mauy others in the last-inserted list. 
It is just as proper to snyjumpt, as it is to say 
leapt, and jast as proper to say walkt as either ; 
and thus we might go on, till the orthogriphy 
of the whole language were changed. When 
the love of contraction came to operate on such 
▼erhs as to bunt and to tight, it found such a 
clump of consonants already at the end of the 
words, that it could add none. It could not 
enable the organs eren of English speech to 
pronounce burst*d, lighted. It therefore made 
really short work of it, and, dropping the last 
syllable altogether, wrote burst and light in the 
past time and passive participle. But is it not 
more harmonious, as well as more correct, to 
say, *< The bubble is almost bursted,*' than it 
IS to say, *< The bubble is almost burst"! And 
as to hang, is it not better to say hanged than 
hungf ** I will be hanged if I do," is a very 

common phrase, and is it not better than it would 
be to say, " I will be hung if I do'"! Many of 
these verbs, by being very difficult to contract, 
have, as in the casn of to hang, to swing, and tho 
like, reduced the shorteners to the necessity o£ 
changing almost all the letters of the words : 
as, to dare, durst : but is it not better to say I 
dared than I durst ? Tiiis habit of contracting: 
or shortening is a very mischievous habit. It 
leads to the destruction of all propriety in the 
use of letters ; and instead of a saving of time, 
it produces, by the puzzling that it gives rise 
to, a great loss of time. Hoping that what £ 
have here said will be a warning to you against 
the cutting of words short, 1 have only to add, 
on the subject of irreynlar verbs, that those in 
the last list are to be used in the regular form* 
and that the only real irregulars are those of 
the first list. Nay, I have, after all, left some 
verbs in the first list, which may be used in 
the regular form : as past, which may be, ia 
the participle, passed, and with full as much
