obviously a good book
I don't know what to do with it,,,or why most people would want to own it...what is the focus and need for it.

I love words and looking them up, for greater meaning and depth... This is a great book, no question. Joyce Meyer recommended it to understand the bible better, background and times words were more in use.

Thank you for asking!

Interesting dictionary
I am very pleased with the Noah Webster 1828 dictionary. I find it fascinating to compare the definitions at the time of our founding to those in a modern dictionary. Some of the differences are subtle but occasionally have a big impact of the meaning of a sentence.
Shipping was slow but tolerable. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

Rare Wholesome Dictionary
Absolutely beautiful and inspiring. It makes you want to sit there and read it and I never got that from another dictionary. I bought it for the family library but I think one won't be enough.

1828 dictionary
Just as a lot of people us Strongs to understand the bible, I believe this to be as useful in understanding original intent in our founding documents.

Fascinating how much modern dictionaries have skewed the meaning of words. This book is a gem and I just ordered three, one for each of my children's families. Merry Christmas, kids!

Wholesome without immoral words.
Rossella F on Sep 18, 2017
I have wanted this dictionary for 20 years. It is an excellent resource and gives such a complete description of a word and its source. It makes Bible study so much richer in particular, but helps to understand the fullness of a word just in common usage.

I want a dictionary that has more traditional definitions for important words.
Jennifer K on Aug 29, 2016
Need a dictionary I'm not afraid to open! i.e. I need a dictionary that will not have swear words in it, and I want one with accurate descriptions. Also, it has been recommended by a friend.
susan g on May 25, 2016
This will be very useful for using with wonderful literature and I can have my children look up words without concern for more modern words that you find in today's dictionaries that I do not want them to know...before their time!
User on Feb 21, 2016
I buy each one of my kids their own copy of this to encourage them in their education. They use their own copy in their work all of the time.

is this a biblical dictionary?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: On the first page of this book is the Dedication..
The Foundation for American Christian Education dedicates this facsimile edition to the Christian students of America, who, under the guidance of their parents and teachers, are developing a character of obedience to God's principles of life and liberty.
Does this dictionary have the explanations of word origins?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2018
Does this dictionary use the schwa (upside down "e") in the pronunciation given for each word?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This dictionary does not give any pronunciations for any words. The word appears in bold with syllables and emphasis marks but no true pronunciation breakdown like modern day dictionaries.
