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 maiginalia 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.

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 tliis resource, we liave 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 fivm 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 attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find

+ 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 liabili^ can be quite severe.

FT is almost universally acknowledged, among learned men, that the 

t9' de6nit]ons in Johnson's Dictionary are superiour to all others ; and it 

»*" IS also conceded, that Walker's pronunciation is, with few exceptionSy 

« f the proper standard. A Dictionary, in which the excellences of these 

two authors are combined, must, therefore, be the best adapted to the 

^■present state of the English language. 

S^ A very valuable work has been executed on this plan, and lately 

published in Boston. It is entitled " Johnson's and Walker's English 

" Dictionaries combined," and contains all the words which have been 

• added to Johnson's Dictionary by Dr. Todd. The following Abridge- 

I ment of this work, in the preparation of which tlie Editor has been 

I tnateriaUy assisted by Dr. Rees' Abridgement of ToddTs Johnsotij will 

\ be found to contain a very copious selection of words ; and it has been 

% leading object to give the definitions and notation with great plai»^ 

Hess and accuracy. 

The Appendix of Americanisms will assist the scholar in detecting 
the words in common use, which are not well authorized, and will 
show him the diflbrence between English and American usage. 



The Principles of Pronunciation^ which follow this Preface, art 
selected almost entirely from Walker's Dictionary. It is not common 
to study these Principles in our schook ; and, hence, Dictionaries are 
Tery imperfectly understood. The Editor earnestly recommends that 
they should be studied thoroughly and frequently by every scholc 
iBrfio can understand them; and that teachers should require them 
to be applied to every lesson from the Dictionary. 

To render these Principles intelligible and interesting, and to im 
press them on the memories of pupils, they are accompanied in thii 
Abridgement with suitable Questions. These will be found a valuft 
ble improvement ; and it is hoped that, on the whole, this Dictionaij 
for Schook possesses more excellence^, and fewer faults, than any that 
kas been offered to the publick.
