A COMPLETE DICTIONARY
OF
SYNONYMS AND ANTONYMS,

OR

SYNONYMS AND WORDS OF OPPOSITE MEANING.

1898

THE RT. REV. SAMUEL FALLOWS, A.M., B.D.


DIGITISED AND RESET BY STEVE WOOD 2016
OCR, EDITS & EXTENSIVE but not EXHAUSTIVE OCR-CORRECTIONS,
LAYOUT for JUST THE SYNONYMS & ANTONYMS (NOT THE APPENDICES).

V2

Wishing to have an extensive list of Synonyms and Antonyms for another
project, I settled on Fallows’ amazing publication. However, I could
not find an OCR text which was clear of the many OCR-scan errors. I
did my own OCR, which joined many of the line-end hyphenated words
automatically, but which still resulted in a very large number of
nearly identical (to other OCR scans) errors. This is probably not
the fault of the OCR software, but rather of the quality of the 19th
Century source type and ink, which tended to be far from crisp. The
software was not entirely perfect though and it would often invert
n and u, or render either of those letters as ii, and render i as l
(lower case L). R and K were regularly mixed, so ROCK could be rendered
as KOCR – if it managed to get the circular letters correct. Just one
example of variation is to be found in the rendering of the coded
abbreviation for SYNONYM, ‘SYN.’ It might be rendered with a period,
comma, both or none; and some of these variations were recorded:  \
BTH \ 2vN. \ 8_vs. \ BYN, \ KYN. \ PYN. \ RYN. \ SIN, \ Srn. \ STIC.
\ STK. \ STN. \ STN., \ STW. \ SVN_ \ SXN. \ SY.V. \ SY:. \ SYH. \
SYK. \ SYN, \ Syn, \ SYN. \ SYN. \ SYN._ \ SYS,. \ SYS. \ SYW. \ SYX\.
and \ YX\. ! I know! Grrr!

Anyhow, with lots of rekeying, lots of rules to fix as many as
aberrations as possible, and employing a personal digital dictionary
of over 600,000 words, I checked many of the fragments and verified
that the OCR scanner had done very well, in fact. Those fragments which
eventually could not be distinguished by eye or logic were left ‘as
is’ and bracketed thus: {[unreadable]?}. When replaced into the text
in their correct sequence, some of those could be deduced from their
context, but I will leave that for the next editor (possibly you, dear
reader.) The dictionary is not perfect or complete, and it did not
distinguish n-Grams which are clearly adequate language. Having
corrected many broken words, I re-sorted them back into original order,
added ‘KEY:’ to the principal, and pasted the lot to the Word Processor
(below) for study, uploading and further corrections.

I did, in fact, Google several scores of unrecognised but
right-looking words and found many were accurate though out of common
use in today’s English. Victorian English vocab was quite extensive.
Did Fallows do a dictionary of word meanings (I wish)?
