The Resource A pocket dictionary; or, complete English expositor : shewing readily the part of speech to which each word belongs; its true Meaning, when not self-evident; its various Senses, if more than one, placed in proper Order; and the Language, from whence it is derived, pointed out immediately after the Explication. Also The Technical Terms are clearly explained; every Word is so accented, that there can be no Uncertainty as to the Pronunciation; and the Names of the Cities and principal Towns, their Distance from London, their Market-Days, and Fairs, according to the New Style, are alphabetically interspers'd; with other useful Articles. To render this Book complete, many modern Words are introduced, which are not to be found in other Dictionaries; and to make it more concise and portable, such Words are omitted, as being neither properly English, nor ever used by good Authors, would only serve to mistead and embarrass the Learner. A Work entirely new, and designed for the Youth of both Sexes, the Ladies and Persons in Business. To which is prefix'd an introduction, containing an history of the English language, with a compendious grammar: And a Recommendation of the Manuscript Copy, In a Letter from Dr. Bevis to the Publisher, (electronic resource)
