The American Dictionary of the English Language is an essential tool for any student of early American religious or political scholarship. Noah Webster, sometimes considered the founding father of American scholarship and education, wrote published "The American Dictionary of the English Language" over his lifetime, publishing it at age 70 in 1828. His ideas influenced the American English language, politics, religion and literature. This digital edition of the 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language faithfully reproduces the definitions from the original printing while making it easy to access from your smart phone. It uses a digital transcription of the dictionary provided by The University of Chicago Department of Romance Languages and Literature.
