JL HE latest Dictionaries of any language are generally the best ; as 
the last editor must be very injudicious, should he not retain whatever 
appears to be valuable in former works of the like nature. If he be di- 
ligent and skilful, he cannot fail to insert what has been omitted by 
preceding lexicographers ; and to correct mistakes of the press, or in 
the orthography and accents. A moderate degree of judgment will 
enable him to reject what is foreign to the subject ; and to be careful 
in expunging what is only proper for a treatise of geography, or a dic- 
tionary of arts and sciences. 

Several Dictionaries, in English and Spanish, have appeared in this 
country. The first was compiled by Capt. Stevens, who, having resi- 
ded some years in Spain, undertook to publish an English and Spanish 
Dictionary, as we then had nothing of this kind worth attention. His 
compilation is far from being contemptible; and he availed himself 
with much industry of the Dictionaries of Nebrixa and Aldrete, that 
were then the best which had been published in Spain. His work was 
printed several times in the course of the last century. 

After Captain Stevens, Pineda pretended to make, as the phrase is, a 
perfect Spanish and English Dictionary; but the perfection of his 
work consisted in nothing more than in mutilating the Dictionary of 
Stevens in many places, and making a very few additions ; though, in 
the preface to his book, Pineda took great liberties with the Spanish 
Academicians, who had compiled, in six large folio volumes, a Dictio- 
nary of their language, under the auspices, and at the expence, of 
their king Philip the Fifth ; and was hardy enough, in that preface, to 
dispute with those Academicians upon the subject of their orthography, 
which they had regulated in a proper manner. 

To Pineda succeeded Delpino, who likewise undertook to compile a 
better Spanish and English Dictionary than had hitherto appeared. It 
must be confessed, that, with all his faults, he took the trouble of ad- 
justing the orthography of the Spanish part, after the manner of the 
Spanish Academicians ; and, in his preface, he justly blamed Pineda for 
not conforming to their orthography. 


Delpino's edition being sold, and a new one wanted, the present 
compiler has corrected and enlarged it. This he has performed 
chiefly by the help of Johnson's Dictionary with regard to the English 
part, and of the Spanish Academicians with regard to the Spanish. 
He can with truth declare, that he has added little less than ten thou- 
sand words, and made many necessary erasures. As to the orthogra- 
phy, he has adhered to Johnson and the Academicians, without the 
least deviation. He does not pretend, that this work is a perfect one 
of the kind ; on the contrary, he candidly owns, that it is still far from 
perfection. Mean while, the Englishman who intends to learn Spa- 
nish, and the Spaniard who studies English, will not often find them- 
selves at a loss for the meaning of a word. 

To conclude in Johnson's words, " Of such a work as this, it is not 
" necessary to say more ; and it is presumed, it will not be found that 
" truth required the editor to say less." 







The SPANISH before the ENGLISH. 

A J The first letter of the Spa- ' 
nish alphabet, and almost all 
known languages, and the 
first of the five vowels. 

4^ is a preposition which marks 
the dative and accusative cases 
either singular or plural j ex. 
a Pedro, to Peter j a los hotH- 
Ires, to the men. 

A marks also the accusative 
case : ex. amo a Pedro, 1 love 

A, in Spanish, sounds always 
like a in these English words, 
tall, rear, call ; ex. cadaver, a 
corpse} abanico, a fan, 

A is used likewise before the ar- 
ticles el, la, and los; ex. d el 
hombre, to the man : a los In- 
gleses, to the Englishmen. 

^ is a preposition, which they 
take from the Latin ad; when 
it is joined with a proper name 
in the masculine gender, they 
use it simply ; as a Fernado, 
a Carlos; to Ferdinand, to 
Charles : but when it is joined 
to a noun appellative in the 
masculine gender, it agrees 
with the article el, which pre- 
cedes the noun ; and, to avoid 
the meeting of the two vowels, 
the e is suppressed ; and so it 
is saidj alRey, totbeKin^; al 

Papa, to the Pope; and yet 
the a continues a preposition, 
as if it was separated. 

A serves also to explain the ac- 
tion of the verb, either when 
it precedes the proper names 
of things, as jugar a las car- 
tas, to play at cards ; or when 
it is placed before an infinitive 
governed by another verb, as 
vamos a pasear, let us go to 
walk ; ir a comer, to go to din- 
ner; matarse a estudiar, to 
kill one's self with study. 

A signifies the place where any 
thing had happened; ex, d la 
puerla de ru casa, at the door 
of his house'. 

A shews also the nearness of any 
thing or place ; ex. estar senta- 
do a. la mesa, to sit down at ta- 
ble ; a la piierta, at the door. 

A explains the distance from 
one place to another, and from 
one point of time to another, 
as de Madrid a Cadiz hay cien 
leguas, there is a hundred 
leagues from Madrid to Cadiz ; 
de aqui d seis meses, hence six 

A signifies the time in which an 
action is done, as d deshora, 
out of season; o Icis dnco, at 
five o'd9ck. 

A signifies also the manner of 
the action; ex. a pie, on foot; 
d caba/lo, on horseback ; paso 
a paso, one step after another. 

A signifies conformity or good 
order in any thing, as « ley dt 
Costilla, according to the law 
of Castille; « fuere de Aragon , 
after the custom of Aragon. 

A serves also to explain quantity 
or number,as elgaslo sube a cien 
pesos, the expence amounts to 
a hundred dollars; vale deve- 
inte, a veinte y cinco doblonet, 
it is worth from twenty ta 
twenty-five doublons; murk' 
ran en la batalla de qualro d cinco 
7nil kombres, there were killed 
in the battle from four to fiv» 
thousand men, 

A serves to express the price of 
any thing, as a veinte reales vale 
la fanega de trigo, a bushel of 
com is worth twenty reals. 

A, after the verbs of motion, 
sometimes point out the place 
■where one goes, as ir a Ma- 
drid, to go to Madrid; ir al 
campo, to go into the country ; 
marchar a Roma, to go to 
Borne ; llevar a Cadiz, to carry 
any thing to Cadiz ; and some- 
times is made use, of for the 
prepotitioA kacif^, toward*} or 


^»{rc, against; as eomo sffue 
kacia, orcontrn, elhs wkio la 
tara a tat Jxirlc, as he went to- 
wards them, he turned his 
face to such a side. 
A \sa. preposition which signi- 
fies also on, into, at; as a las 
tres, at throe o'clock ; a. veinte 
le^uas de aqui, twenty leaj^ues 
off; a dos pukadas de tlerra, 
within two inches of the 
j!;round ; a ra~jan de s>'ispor cien- 
to, at the rate of six per cent.; 
a la drecha, on the rljrht hand. 
A points out the distribntion or 
equal partition of anything; 
as a tres por ciento, at three 
per cf:nt. ; a perdiz por barha, 
a partridge each ; dot n dos, 
tw« by two. 
A is a^<-o a particle whieh has se- 
veral sif^nificatlons; sometimes 
it signifies the fashion; ex. t<°- 
sllda a la Friinceta, dressed after 
the French fashion. 

Sometimes the quality ; ex. 
a prueba de bombat, bomb- 
pronf. ' 

Sometimes it is put for the 
adverb about : dd nueve a diez 
7nil fiombres, *lK)ut nine or ten 
fljoufand men. 

A precedes many adverbs ; ex. 
poco a poco, softJy ; a tritero, by 
changing; d braw parlido, by 
strength of arms ; d vhta tk 
ejos, evidently ; Apecho descubt- 
erto, sincerdy. 

It is also a particle of com- 
position in many verbs, as 
from dueda, lanxa, pah, are ' 
formv'd aduedar, alairJir, apa- 
lecir, &c. 
A pignifiof; also the motive or 
end {.f the action, as a instan- 
cia (fet Reti, dno el Papa en ello,
