Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary: “The Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children … ought to be instructed

Noah Webster first published his American Dictionary of the English Language on APRIL 14, 1828.

In order to evaluate the etymology of words, he learned 26 languages, including:

  • Old English,
  • German,
  • Greek,
  • Latin,
  • Italian,
  • Spanish,
  • French,
  • Hebrew,
  • Arabic, and
  • Sanskrit.

Taking over two decades to complete, Webster’s Dictionary provided over 30,000 new definitions, standardized spelling and gave American English its identity.
