rom former editions, and we make
some random notes from the various
The new Webstei omits the words
anopisthographic and opisthographic,
two word3 that have been thoroughly
naturalized. Bermudcan (adj.) is
missing, as is also the verb to true (as
truing up, used by carpenters, etc.)
We are told that the spelling of
advance with a d Is a mistake, as also
the spelling of could with an I. The
atter assertion will be found in Wor
cester. The prefix JE is usually dis
carded and e substituted therefor.
The 8 in island "is due to confusion
with w?e;" Vhile Worcester says the
use of the is an error. Webster say3
he spelling of sovereign is udue to a
supposed connection with reign,"
while Worcester says the word, if
tyraologically spelled, would be sot'

the preference to the form afterward,
while the International prefers after-
wards, solely to give it a genitive
case. This is going backward.
In the matter of compounding, we
note an improvement in the new
Webster. For instance, the old in
consistencies in compounds of house
are done away with, and the proper
consolidated word3 appear.
The Unabridged (ed. 1872) gave us
manila with one and nearly every
paper-dealer in the country had
learned to conform to this orthogra
phy; now the International must
needs give us unecessarily, it seems
to us a double I: manilla.
The Unabridged very properly di
vided English (ing-glish) on the n;
the International returns to Eng-lish,
though retaining the pronunciation
unchanged. If we are to follow, as
we do in this country, the fashion of
dividing words upon their syllables,
there is no reason for making an ex
ception in so prominent a case as this
We must especially note some
changes in syllabification and pro
nunciation, and for more convenient
reference we put a few of these in
We must confess to astrong dislike
to the foregoing. The divisions do
not show the generally received pro
nunciation, while those given sound
dudish and anglomaniacal. It is well
for the preface to say that the latter
were regulated by professors in deaf-
mute schools, to which, apparently,
they should have confirmed their
The International allbrds no help
in the burning question of spelling
reform, except that, instead of saying
that program is "rare," it says, the
"same programme." The Century
Dictionary gives the shorter as the
preferred form, and defines it under
The International, in preferring ax
to axe, informs us that the e was
formerly used toe, waxe, taxe, pixe,
sixc,fluxe, etc., and properly argues
that it should therefore be .dropped
from ax. It might, with equal pro
priety, have dropped some more su
Of course the preparation of such a
work as the International is a stupen
dou9 task, requiring ripe scholarship,
persistent labor and the utmost care,
It is a monument to American enter

Iiut we confess to a grievous disap
pointment that what was once an
"American Dictionary of the Fnglish
Language" should become so much
like an Knglish Dictionary of the
American Language. Our country
affords as wide and as broad scholar
ship as any other; and in the lan
guage of our own country our educa
tors have no superiors. Climatic in
iluences, the infusion of other blood
ami divergence of habit have made
us a diflerent people from those of
