IT is almost universally acknowledged, among learned men, that the 
definitions in Johnson's Dictionary are superiour to all others ; and it 
is also conceded, that Walker's pronunciation is, with few exceptions, 
the proper standard. A Dictionaiy, in which the excellences of these 
•two authors are combined, must, therefore, be the best adapted to the 
present state of the English language. 

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- 
ment of this work, in the preparation of which the Editor has been 
materially assisted by Dr. Rees' Abridgement of TodtVs Johnson, will 
be found to contain a very copious selection of words ; and it has been 
a leading object to give the definitions and notation with great plain- 
ness 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 liim the difference between English and American usage. 


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

To render these Principles intelligible and interesting, and to im • 
press them on the memories of pi-pils, they are accompanied in this 
Abridgement witli suitable Questions. These will be found a valua- 
ble improvement ; and it is Loped that, on the whole, this Dictionary 
for Schools possesses more excellences, and fewer faults, than any that 
has been offered to the publick.
