The exertion of clothing a thought in a completely new set of words
increases both clearness of thought and mastery over words. It is the
test of a solid thought that it will bear a change of clothing.--J. R.




Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1871, by


In the Office of the Librarian of Congress at Washington.



Transcriber's note:

Definitions which are synonyms in alphabetic order in the text (e.g.
Afterward, Afterwards) are shown as connected by braces followed by
the common description(s). In this text they have been separated and
duplicated. Minor typos and numbering errors of descriptions have been
corrected. All small caps have been converted to CAPITALS. Inconsistent
hyphenation has been retained.


The main design of this Dictionary is to provide a ready means of
assistance when one is at a loss for a word or an expression that best
suits a particular turn of thought or mood of the mind, or that may
obviate an ungraceful repetition. Even practised and skilful writers
are sometimes embarrassed in the endeavor to make a sentence more
clear, simple, terse, or rhythmical, by the substitution of one form
of diction for another. It is presumed that they, as well as novices
in composition, will find the present work useful in overcoming
difficulties of this sort.

As to the method of using it: Whenever a doubt arises in regard to the
fitness of any word, and a better one is not readily suggested, let
the writer turn to this word in its alphabetical place. Under it will
be found the words and phrases, or some clew to the words and phrases,
which, in any connection, have the same meaning as itself, or a
meaning very nearly the same. That one of them, which comes nearest to
expressing the exact shade of thought in the writer's mind, will be
likely to arrest the attention and determine the choice.

In most cases, all the words that belong to any group will be found in
that group. But in some instances, as when the same word falls into
two or more groups that are near to each other, or when there are so
many synonymes for a word that a repetition of every one of them under
each in its alphabetical place would seem to be too formal and prolix,
the inquirer is referred to some prominent word among them for a view
of the whole. Under the word _Blockhead_, for example, reference is
made to the word DUNCE,--printed, for this purpose, in capitals, as
here,--under which will be found all the words that are synonymous
with it. This example is given because it is the most marked one in
our language of a multiplicity of terms for the same idea.

Many nouns ending in _ness_, and adverbs ending in _ly_, have been
omitted in their alphabetical places, for the reason that their
synonymes are sufficiently indicated by the corresponding adjectives.

The aim has been to present at a single glance the words or modes of
speech which denote the same object, or which express the same general
idea, with only slight shades of difference. There has been no attempt
at elaborate discussion of the nice distinctions that obtain between
words apparently synonymous; but hints of such distinctions have been
given whenever it was practicable to give them briefly in a
parenthetical remark.

In preparing this Dictionary, free use has been made of the following
works: Roget's Thesaurus of Words and Phrases; the Quarto Dictionaries
of Webster and of Worcester; Crabb's Synonymes; Graham's Synonymes;
Whately's Synonymes; Platt's Synonymes; the Dictionaries of Synonymes
by Fenby, Sherer, Mackenzie, and Smith; the Medical Dictionaries of
Dunglison and of Thomas; and the United States Dispensatory by Wood
and Bache. It contains much, however, that has been gathered from a
wide field of miscellaneous reading during a long series of years.

The author is under special obligations to his friends Mr. JUSTIN
interest they have manifested in the progress of the work, and for
their valuable suggestions and criticisms.
