A dictionary of the English language, answering at once the purposes of rhyming, spelling, and pronouncing. On a Plan not hitherto attempted. In which, I. The whole Language is arranged according to its Terminations. II. Every Word is explained and divided into Syllables exactly as pronounced. III. Words liable to a Double Pronunciation are fixed in their True Sound, by a Rhyme. IV. Many Words of established Usage, not to be found in our best Dictionaries, are inserted, and more technical Terms than in any Dictionary, except Chambers’s. To which is prefixed A copious Introduction to the various Uses of the Work, with critical and practical Observations on Orthography, Syllabication, Pronunciation, and Rhyme; And for the purposes of poetry is added an index of allowable rhymes. With Authorities for their Usage from our best Authors. By J. Walker, Author of the General Idea of a Pronouncing Dictionary.
