A new English dictionary. [electronic resource] : Containing I. An explanation of all English words used by the best writers; the various senses of each word being distinctly pointed out by figures 1,2,3, &c. II. The language from which each word is derived. III. The part of speech to which it belongs. IV. A supplement of upwards of 4000 proper names. In which every word has not only the common accent to denote the emphasis of the voice, but, in order to a just pronunciation, every syllable is marked with a long or short accent to determine its quantity; and the quiescent letters, various sounds of vowels, &c. are so distinguished, that any person, native or foreigner, who can but read, may speedily acquire an accurate pronunciation of the English Language. To the whole is prefixed a dissertation of the species of sounds, &c. with practical observations on the various powers and formations of the letters. A work intirely new, and designed for the use of schools, and of foreigners, as well as natives who would speak, read, and write English with propriety and accuracy.
