Excerpt from Synonyms and Antonyms: Or, Kindred Words and Their Opposites, Collected and Contrasted

Tm; nature and use of this work are meant to be rather practical than scientific.

The Author has accordingly not propounded any theory or verbal analogy on the one hand, or verbal opposition on the other, as the basis of his Synonyms and Antonyms; though he believes that the time has arrived when both ought to be sup plied, and the co - ordination and Opposition of words reduced to strict exactness and scientific rule, beyond what has hitherto been indirectly recognized by Logic.

Words which agree in expressing one or more characteristic ideas in common he has regarded as Synonyms, those which negative one or more such ideas he has called Antonyms.

Principles or Degrees of Similarity, and Principles or Degrees of Opposition, have not been laid down, though they have been recognized in his own mind. He has rather endeavoured to place himself in the position, alternately, of two opposed thinkers, or debaters, so furnishing each with a short catena Of Synonyms to express or aid the current of his thoughts, tendering at the same time to each such negatives as might be employed in the opposite argument. The etymology of the words has been pre fixed, as aiding ordinary readers in the apprehension and use of them, and prominent points of usage have been also noticed. One word of apology he feels to be due for the employment of a word which he has ventured, not to coin but to re-issue.
