rH E curious and profitable application of this nation ^ to learn the 
principal foreign languages of Europe^ has encouraged the prÍ7iti?ig 
of federal DiSiionaries, necejfary to facilitate the learning of the faid 
tongues ; of which the mofl ufeful and 7ieceffary^ to an Englifj you?ig mer- 
chant is, J helievcy th§ Spanifj language^ for the extenfve and rich trade 
cqrried on with Spain y in Europe^ and in the IV eft-Indies. At the end of 
'the lafl century^ was publiped by one Miniliew, a very impeyfeSi and de- 
fe&ive Vocabulary y in Spanifj and Englifh^ without any explanation of the 
fever al meanings of words, 7ieither of exprejjions ', fofne years after, appear- 
ed the DiSlionajy of Captain Stephens, that ought to he called rather a 
faulty colleBion of the mof witlefs coiifonances under the 7iame of Proverbs, 
with ridiculous C077í7ne7itaries upon their true fetife and origin. — Otnitting 
thefe exprejfive adages, thefe port and adffiirable fentences multa paucis, 
thefe wife maxÍ77ts expreffed in few words, and ad7nired by all the learned, 
in the Spa7iifj lajiguage. At laf, Í7i 1740, appeared a DiSiionaiy, whofe 
ig7iora7ít, fclfifj, a7id obfinate writer, having before his eyes, the 7nofl 
learned and ufeful work upon the Caflillian la7iguage of the Royal Spanifj 
Acade7ny of Madrid, followed an ortography quite contrary to the true 
ety77iology of words, to the C07?i77wn prefent ufe, and to reafon. Inflead of 
Í7jfertÍ7jg a great 7na7iy exp7'ejfwns and words that he 07nitted, as well as the 
explanation of the7n, he fuffcd his Di&iona7y with flly tales a7id fo7'ies, 
with a77iple a7id ufelefs defcriptions of Cities, Villages, and Rivers of Spain 
a7id A7nerica ; he added to this, pedantical decla7natio7is agaÍ7if the Pope, 
the Kmg of Spain, a7id the Spa7iifj 7iation, without a7}y reafon or inotive -, 
fo he fnacle a perfor7nance worfe than a77y other of the fa77ie kÍ7id, and very 
unvendible for his Bookfellers, as they have experie7icd it. This induced 7ne 

3 . to 



to í¿?idertake this work, a?id to lay doivn m it the new, modern and approved 
Ortography, ejiablip^ed by the Royal Spa7iijli Acade7ny, whofe obfervations I 
have followed, being ad?nitted as rules by all the lear?ied ifi SpaÍ7i, and ap- 
proved of by all the modern writers of that ?iation. It was high ti?ne, ?iay 
there was aii abfolute neceffity to 7nake a new Spa7iif}3 and R7iglifh -DiElio- 
nary : for all languages alter by tÍ7ne a7id cuJlo77t ; and the Spa7iiJJj has 
received fo 7na7iy alterations, that 7iobody ca7i prete7id to lear7i it in per- 
feBion as it is 7iow fpoken at court, a7id ufed by fnodern authors, without new 
Í7iflruSíio77S. The 9 called cedilla, which was fo 9nuch in ufe before, is now 
left off, and the reafons for it, the reader will f7td in my obfervations upon 
the z fubfiituted in its place. So77ie of the Spanifh words are f of tened, and 
others altered, as tjiore confor77iable to their ety7nology fro7n the latin ; as 
Í7iflead of Cor2i(^on, we fay Corazón; for veces, dezír, hazér ; veces, decir, 
hacer ; Í7ifead of eftoy, doy, Reyno ; eftói, dói, Reino ; for dava, iva, ' 
devo, efcrivo ; daba, iba, debo, efcribo ; for cavallo, govierno ; caballo, 
gobierno, ^c. 

All thefe alterations, and ma7iy others, have been made by the Academy 
cf Madrid, in its DiBio7iary, which is the 07ily fl andar d for all thofe who 
aitn at fpeahng and writing corre&ly the Spa7iip La7tguage,

lour, and becaufe it is an excellent pec- 
toral. Ray in his hillory of plants gives 
this account of it : The mau-cau, or 
rou-cau tree, between a flirub and a 
tree, bears a fruit in a cod two or three 
fingers long, about as big as a plumb ; 
in each cod there are thirty or forty feeds> 
or grains, each faftned to a little llalk, 
in the fhape of a fharp cone, flatted on 
both fides ; the colour of thefe feeds or 
gr.iins is a bright fcarlet j they are damp 
with a juice that dyes the hands if they 
touch it ; thefe feeds new gather'd aie 
foft like thofe of an apple, when dry 
they turn of a deep red. Thefe ground 
with water, and made up into balls of 
cakes, are ient over into Europe. Thus 
far Ray, who calls it achictl ; but the 
true name the Spaniards call it by, is 
achióie, this fleep'd in urine dyes linneni 
fo that it never waihes out.

f. f. the fecond' letter of the 
alphabet, and áie firft «onfo- 

nant É it is one of the mutes, and 
is pronounced (hutting the lips, as 
in other languages ; but as there is 
fo little difference, in pronunciation 
in Spaniili, between the B and V, 
that the ignorant indifferently ufe 
them in writing as they do in fpeak- 
ing, I believed it was proper to give 
the following rules. 

1°. All the words that have a B, in 
their original or derivation, muft be 
written with a B ; as, beber, from 
bibere ; efcrilir, fzoxn/cribere ; alfo a 
few words that have been conftantly 
wrote with a B ; as, abogado, baluarte, 
borla, buytre. 

2°, The original of a word being un- 
certain, it muft be written with a B. 

3°. The P of fome wordf, originally 
Latin or Greek, is often clianged 
into B, in the Spaniih language ; 
therefore the following words, cbi/fo, 
from epifcopus ; and cabtlh, from ca- 
pillus, are wrote with a E, excepting 
fomc words that have been conftantly 
written with V ; as, Sevilla. 

4". Before the letters L and R, when 
they are liquid in pronunciation, it 
is proper and peculiar to the Spaniih, 
to make ufe of tJic B ; as in the 
words, blando, doble, bravo, bronce. 

B, among the ancients, was a numeral let- 
ter worth 300, according to this verfe. 
Et B treccntum per/e retiñere Kjidetur. 
But when it had a title on tlie top (b) 
then it flood for 3000.

BEHETRI'AS, are lordihips, or liber- 
ties free from the fubjedUon of any 
lord, but what they chufe at pleafure, 
and can difcard at will. The law oT 
Spain defines it thus. Behetría, fio-- 
nifies an inheritance belonging to it- 
felf, free from him that lives in it, 
and can receive for its lord, whom it 
plcafes. Thefe are the words of the 
law literally tranflated. " There 
" were two forts of them, the one 
" call'd Behetr'ias de mar a mar, or 
" from fea to fea ; to exprcfs, that 
" they might chufe for their lord 
" whom they pleafed, from the 
" ocean to the Mediterranean. The 
" other fort was called Bebctrias de 
" entre parientes ; that is, among 
" kindred, which were oblig'd to 
" chufe their lord of certain fami- 
" lies, whole right it was." Thefe 
are all fupprefs'd and incorporated 
into the crown of Spain, though 
they retain the name and fome fmall 
privileges. The etymology fo un- 
certain, that it is not worth men- 
tioning : they that will, may fee it 
in Covarrubias. But becaufe thefe 
free places are generally full of noife 
and confufion for want of a fovereign 
power, therefore behetría is us'd to 
fignify any tumultuous affembly, or 
confus'd diforderly noife ; or as we 
fay, Dover-Court, all talkers, and 
no hearers.

iant, have no greater pleafure than to 
chew it all day in company, and no 
vifit begins or ends without this 
herb. Before it they always chew 
the arsca, defcrib'd in its place, that 
the coolnefs of this, as they fay, 
may temper the heat of the other ; 
and they lay a little difiblv'd lime on 
the bcteli leaf, to colour and foften 
Its biting tafte. It fpends not fo 
well in any part of Afia, as in the 
Philippine Illands, where the areca 
is foft and eafy to chew. The 
Spaniard» nuke a compofuion of 

both herbs with lime, which they 
call buyo, and carry it in curious 
boxes, to chew it every moment 
abroad and at home. The betclé 
makes the lips fo fine, red, and

CO'CA, f. f. is a fmall green leaf 
growing on little trees, or brufhes 
about a man's height, in exceflive 
hot and very moift land. The tree 
hears this leaf every four months. 
It requires much care in cultivating, 
and mueh more to preferve it when 

gather'd. They lay it very orderly 
into long narrow baikets, which 
they load on theflieepof the country, 
and they travel with this commodity 
in flocks carrying two or three thou- 
fand baikets. It generally grows in 
the country they call Los Andes, in 
bottoms which are intolerably hot, 
where it rains moil part of the year ; 
and it colls the Indians intolerable 
labour and many lives to look after 
it, becaufe they go for it from the 
cold mountains. The ufe of it is 
only to chew and fuck the juice of 
it, but not fwallow the leaf. It 
doubtlefs is nouriihing, for the In- 
dians will travel great journeys, or 
do any other great labour without 
eating, with only a handful of ccca. 
It has an unpleafant tafte, and they 
powder it with aihes, or lime. F.

fomewhat like a new almond, but 
when hanging on the tree, all within

they build, rig, and fit out ihips 
from this tree alone, which furniihes 
all the timber, mails, yards, fails,

they load her with commodities from

black fugar, fruit and ftrong water. 
\^'ith this tree alone they build good 
houfcs, and cover them with the 
leaves. The body of the tree affords 
timber for building ; of the leaves 
they make fails, of the outward ihell 
of the nut all the cordage and rig- 
ging. The wine is made by cutting 
a branch of the tree, and putting a

the bert call'd fula, and the fecond

fura from the tree, they receive the 
laft running in another veflel, which 
boil'd, becomes fugar, call'd tliere

to make cups and diilies, and is alfo
