Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) was the foremost English language dictionary of its time. It had been revised and unabridged from its predecessors since the first publication of the Compendious Dictionary of the English Language in 1806 by Noah Webster (1758-1843), American lexicographer, spelling reformer and editor.
In 1988, Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) was released to the public domain and now users and language enthusiasts all over the world have free access to this historic reference work. It features a diverse array of entries – 170.000 in all – containing foreign words & phrases, biographical and geographical names, signs & symbols in various fields of endeavor, punctuation, capitals & italics, documenting sources, forms of address, and much more.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) gives us etymological insight of how words change over time. It may be used as a language research tool, just for fun, as a history sleuth, or even for language arts or many other English projects.
