PREFACE 

TO REVISED EDITION 



WHEN I was asked by Messrs. Cassell & Co, to undertake the revision of 
their French Dictionary, I had no idea of the formidable nature of the task 
that lay before me. It was obvious, of course, that a very great deal would 
have to be done to bring up to date a dictionary of a living language that 
is ever growing, and in which new wprds and new meanings of words are 
being coined almost daily. But I found, in the course of the four and a half 
years during which I have been engaged upon the work, that it assumed 
proportions altogether undreamt of, and that I was virtually producing a 
new work. 

Perhaps I may be permitted to direct attention to some of the features 
which distinguish the new edition. 

Many thousands of new words and phrases, idioms and idiomatic expres- 
sions, proverbs and proverbial expressions, have been included. In a great 
many instances chapter and verse have been given. Two hundred columns 
of print have been added to the book. 

For the words in the French-English part, I have closely followed the 
smaller Littrfi as well aa Beschercllc, and have taken special care to give, as 
far as the compass of the Dictionary would allow, illustrative examples of the 
many and various meanings conveyed by the words under review. These 
various meanings have also been classified, as far as possible, under their 
respective heads. In the English-French portion I have, as far as the selec- 
tion of words is concerned, closely followed the lines of CasselFs English 
Dictionary, The latest classical, general, scientific, commercial, naval, and 
military terms are incorporated. In this part, too, the "notation" of the 
words has been carefully marked throughout and the pronunciation revised, 

For the idioms and idiomatic expressions I have been greatly indebted to 
Tarrer*s English-French Phraseological Dictionary and to Mr. de V. Payers 
Payne's excellent work on " French Idioms and Proverbs." * 

I have also to acknowledge, with many thanks, help from M. Ferdinand 
Thomas, B, A., B. Be., in notation of words, correction of proofs, etc. In the 
course of the progress of the revision, I have also received from various! 
louroes notes of many words and meanings which have proved of value, Mr. 
B&rroxt sup plied a number of these. 

Among cither features of the work which may justly, I think, be accounted 
improvements, I may mention the following, viz.: the different preporfr 
tloas affixed to Y0Aa have been printed in heavier type thus simplifying 



one of the 



greatest difficulties of the language; the pronunciation 



words, whqre needstary, has been carefully indicated ; and the list of 
i of QWfiWw and places has been largely added to. 



My thanks are due in no small measure to the printers tor tlie care wrai 
which the proofs have been treated, and for the intelligence displayed by 
their proof-readers. 

The work has occupied me, as I have said, for more than four years ; but 
the process of revision has been to me most interesting, and while the labor 
expended has been far greater than anything I could have anticipated,, I 
trust that the result will give satisfaction to an even larger circle of readers 
than was obtained by previous editions* 

j. a 



I HAVE been very pleased to revise my friend, Mr. Boielle's, work. All T 
have done is to do what lie would have done himself, hud he. not died a week 
before the publication of this work. I have read through the work and 
corrected evident misprints, taking as my guides the new edition of WVlwtor'w 
Dictionary, Littre and Hatzfeld-Darmesteter.

TABLE OF IRREGULAR AND DEFECTIVE VERBS. 



THE Imperfect of the Indicative, the Conditional, the Imperative, and the Imperfect 
of the Subjunctive, are wanting in this Table. These four tenses are formed as 
follows : 

The imperfect of the indicative is regularly formed from the present participle 
by changing ant into CMS, &$:parl-cmtjjeparl-ais;jfiniss-antije t finis$-aiSi <fec. 

The conditional lias always the same root as the future j so that the firwt person of 
the future being known, it is easy to form the conditional, as : je parlvraij je par- 
lerai~9 ) jejinirai, je Jinirai-s. 

The imperative is always regularly formed from the present of the indicative, by 
suppressing the pronouns, as : je parle, imperative, parle ; except in the verbs avoir, 
t'tre, and mooir* The third person singular and plural of the imperative arc always 
the same as in the present of the subjunctive, and belong to that louse. 

The imperfect of the subjunctive is always regularly formed from the pntont 
indicative by adding 1 .?<, etc., to the second person singular, as : tuparlwi, qwj<>par- 
las-se; tujinis^ qw je Jims-se ; tu reyts, W^J requs-w; tu vcndis, queje venvtts-se*
