Hello,

 

What would you think about having the Merriam Websters 1828 dictionary available on Logos?

 

Thanks!

There is, but it is sold by someone else (designed for Libronix/Logos) and I'm not allowed to link to such, due to forum guidelines.  I was wondering if it even mattered though, since Logos does not sale the product.  If I'm allowed to direct you to such, then perhaps an employee could let me know.

Douglas, you might not want to post your email address in plain text like that, as spam bots scouring the web can pick it up. Most people modify theirs in some way such as "emailname at domain dot com."

I am sure you meant Noah Webster 1828 dictionary.....As Don said, you can get it in the really cool bundle with the other titles from Foundation for American Christian Education (F.A.C.E.) I have used those books in homeschooling and can recommend them with a smile on my f.a.c.e. Big Smile

or, you can also find it sold in Libronix format published by F.A.C.E. at locations off this web site.

Just be careful to confirm it is actually the Libronix format CD. There is another version that is NOT the same.  NOTE: The same goes for the Oxford Concise Dictionary - there is a Libronix format & another that is not.

I really shouldn't tease you but I hope your spelling isn't indicative of the quality of their educational materials. Big Smile - it just too good an opportunity for me to behave myself, despite having some spelling bloopers of my own.

 Before Noah Webster spelling was pretty muche whotebwer a pursun wantted it too be.

 It has a lot more to do with my stubborn refusal to use spell checkers than it does with the fine ladies who wrote the texts.

 

btw: thanks for immortalizing my boo-boo in the quote. It is funny, huh?

Would someone care to explain why this particular dictionary is desired?  It's not old enough (nor British enough) to be useful regarding the language of the King James, and it's too old to be of contemporary relevance.

You're welcome - I could correct the spelling and leave the subsequent readers totally confused. My sister proof reads for an educational software firm. She has a number of funny cases that the spell checker missed including misspellings people added into their dictionary.

Here is the (breathless) copy on the web page referenced above describing why you, George Somsel, should buy this dictionary.

The Webster’s 1828 Dictionary is a unique and essential tool for educating Christians. It has the greatest number of Biblical definitions of any reference. Roots are traced in 26 languages. Usage examples come from classical literature and the Bible. This dictionary becomes not only a tool for defining words biblically, it becomes a way of thinking that forms your worldview. It will equip you for Christian leadership, strengthen your vocabulary, give you an edge in communicating your view and become your foundation for thinking and reasoning Biblically. This tool can be the turning point for you to be more effective in communicating Christian principles used in government, economics, and marketing or for your student to clearly understand how the Bible has influenced every area of life.

The definitions frequently use scripture references or just plain good old fashioned moral examples. Webster's Bible took the KJV text and "Americanized" it so it is not really a KJV issue at all. Many students of the founding fathers like having a more contemporary source to understand their writings. American syntax has really degraded in the past 180 years. (Just like our spelling skills....Embarrassed )

It was, however, found necessary to correct many of old Noah's biblical etymologies once G. C. Merriam took over the publication.  Having the definitions isn't the most important factor but whether they are correct.
