This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

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 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

'fta success of Mr. SuTenne's " Standard Pronouncing Dio- 
tionaiy 6f the French and English Languages'* has enconiv 
aged the belief that the public would receive favourably, au 
abridgment of the same, at a cheaper price. The present 
work has accordingly been prepared — ^in two parts — Fretick 
€thd English — English and French, each containing an ample 
dictionary and copious definitions, with a Vocabulary of 
Proper Nam^ at the end of the volume. 

In compiling tMs abridgment of the larger work, all the 
words have been Retained except those which have become 
obsolete, or whose technicality precluded their insertfon in a 
popular Dictionary. At the same time, due regard has bee^ 
paid to the introduction of 8U«h new words and definitions 
aa the progressive changes in the language have rendered 
necessary; and for this purpose the best and most recent 
authorities have been anxiously consulted. It is therefore 
confidently anticipated that the volume will prove not only 
a useful auxiliary to the student^ but also a convenient 
Pocket Companion to the traveller wherever the French 
V? language is spoken.
