% PREFACE, %

This book has been carefully and con. scientiously edited, using the work of the great Noah Webster as a basis, and corforming as far as possible with the views of such eminent philologists and ortho. epists as Worcester, Whitney, Cobbett and Ayres.

It contains CLEAR and CONCISE DEFINITIONS, CORRECT ACCENTUATION, and FULL MARKİNGS of all difficult words, according to the highest authorities.

It contains many new words lately coined and not found in any dictionary heretofore published; also a larger percentage of root words than any other book of its kind.

It carefully preserves and distinguishes that troublesome class of words, alike in spelling but different in meaning and pronunciation, and pays special attention to the foreign words which have lately been brought into common use in the English language.

It is a safe and consistent guide to proper speech and correct writing, two things all men, women and children should strive to attain.

THE PUBLISHERS.
