or THB 













Since the scientific labours of Mr. Walker have rescued English orthoepy from 
the arbitrary dictates of pednntry, and the fluctuations of caprice, a correct pro. 
nunciation seems almost to have become a criterion of good, breeding and a liberal 
education. There will always be, it is probable, some words of a pronunciation so 
ambiguous, that even among polite speakers, a difference will prevail, and each 
must be left to the guidance of his o^n car : but, it is much to be doubted, whether 
any lexicographer will ever approach nearer than Mr. Walker, to the establifihing of 
a correct standard. He has exhibited such a philosophical knowledge of language, 
8uch extensive observation, such profound investigation of analogy, with such 
clearness of method ^nd perspicuity of style, as to render any material improvement, 
at present, rather to be wished than expected. Although we do not consider Mr. 
Walker's Dictionary ttfallible, yet it appears to m eminently the best guide to a 
correct and elegant pronunciation of our language. — Critical Review, 

Walker's Dictionary is selected as the most suitable for the use of schools, 
because it is in much more general use than any other; and, by general consent, in 
flU countries where the English language is spoken, is allowed, and taken to be the 
most correct standard of pronunciaiion.' It is important, for the uniformity and 
perpetuity of our language, that such a standard should be generally adopted ; and 
it is hoped the time is not far distant, when this book will be the only legitimate 
authority for the orthography and pronunciation of the English language. 

Superintend, Com. SehooU, State N. F. 



_ EW subjects hare of late yean more employed the pent of ereij class of critickt, 

the improTement of the English Language. The greatest abilities m the nation have beea 
exerted in cultivating and reforming it { nor have a tliousand minor criticks been wanting 
Co add their mite of amendment to their native tongue. Johnson, whose lar^e mind and just 
Caste made hira capable of enriching and adorning the Lan^age with original compositiooy 
has condescended to the drudgery of disentangling, explamiiig, and arranging it, and left 
a lasting monument of his ability, labour, and patience ; and Dr. Lowth, tbs politest scho* 
lar of me age, has vailed his saperiority in his short Introduction to Ei^iisn Grammar. 
The ponderous folio has vindicated the rights of analogy ; and the light ephemeral sheet of 
news has corrected errors in Grammar, as well as in politicks, by slyly marking them in 

Nor has the improvement stopped here. While Johnson and Lowth have been insensi* 
bly operating on the ortho^pny and construction of our Language, its pronunciation bat 
not been neglected. The importance of a consistent and regular pronunciation was toootp 
rious (o be overlooked ; and the want of this consistency ana regularity has induced several 
ingenious men to endeavour at a reformation ; who, by exhibiting- the regularities of pro- 
nunciation, and pol-.iting out its analogies, have reclaimed some words that were not irreco- 
▼erably fixed in a wrong sound, and prevented others from being perverted by ignoranc* 
or caprice. 

Among those writers who deserve the first praise on this subject, is Mr. Elphinston ; 
who, in his Principles ofi^e English Language, has reduced the chaos to a system ; and. 
by a deep investigation of the analogies of our tongue, has laid the foundation of a just ana 
regular pronunciation. 

After him, I^. Kenrick contributed a portion of improvement by his Rhetorical Dictioa^ 
arj ; in which the woids are divided into syllables as they are pronounced, and figures pla« 
ced over the vowels, to indicate the different sounds. Bui this gentleman has rendered his 
Dictionary extremely imperfect, by entirely omit ing a great number of words of doubtiiil 
and difficult pronunciation — those very words for which a Dictionary' of this kind would b« 
most consulted. 

To him succeeded Mr. Sheridan, who not only divided the words into syllables, and pla- 
ced figures over the vowels, as Dr. Kenrick had done, but, by spelling tlnse syllables ai 
thej are pronuunced, seeiiicd to complete the idea of a Pronouncing Dictionary, and to 
leave but little expectation of future improvemaat. It must, indeed, be confessed, that Mr. 
Sheridan's Dictionary is greatly ajuperior to every other that preceded it ; and his method 
of conveying the sound of words, by spelling them as Uiey are proiMHinccd, is highly ration* 
al and utienil. — But here sincerity obliges luc to stop. Numerous instances of impropriety, 
incoosiirtenc^, and want of acquaintance with the analogies of the Language, suffic.iently 
show thaf his Dictionary is upon the whole imperfect, and that ample room was left ibr at* 
tempting another, which mi^t bettor answer the purpose of a Guide tc Pronunciauon. 

The last writer on this subject is Mr. Nares, who, in nis Elemeritti of Orthdepy, has shown 
a clearness of method and an extent of ob^en'ation which deserve the highest encomiums* 
His Preface alone proves him an elegant writer, as well as a philosophical observer of La n* 
guage ; and his Alphabetical Index, referring near five thousand words to the rules for 
pronouncing them, is a new and useful method of treating the subject ; but he seems, en 
many occasions, to have mistaken the best usage, und to have paid too IvlUe. «A.V!Uu\Si^^Vs^^!&j^

mHj with to be compared with diose who have ^one before him, but will promote the com 

rison, by intbrniin^ h«8 readers what others nave done, and on what he foimds his prs- 
lions to a preference ; and if this be done with fairness and without acrimony, it can be 

> more inconsistent with modesty, than it is with honesty and plain dbaling. 

The work 1 have offered on the subject has, I hope, added something to the publick stock ; 

I have endeavoured to unite the science of Mr. Elphioston, the method of Mr. Narei, 

d the general utilivy of Mr. Sheridan. 

With respect to the explanation of word*, except in very few instances, I have scrop» 
lOOfly followed Dr. Johnsoo. His Dictiona*7 has been deemed la^vful plunder by every 
pibsequent lexicographer ; and ao servilely has it been copied, that such woids as he must 
kafe omitted merely by mistake, as PredUeeUftn^ Respectable, Descriptive, Sulky, Inimical^ 
bUtr/krtnoe, and many others, are neither ia Mr. Sheridaii^s, Dr. Kenrick's, nor several 
fl^MT Dictionaries.
