First of all: THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE DICTIONARY! It will not have modern words/definitions! You will be disappointed if you want that! Having said that, I have found this unique dictionary to be incredibly useful, when trying to understand words from a different era. It is insightful how a word can evolve over time and have a different meaning from one time period to another. I don’t like assuming what author’s are trying to say- and interpret their words through MY viewpoint. So when I’m reading American Authors at the turn of the century this dictionary is so enlightening! (Side-Note: as to where this dictionary originated) Daniel Webster (the author) felt compelled to write a dictionary for Americans and set a standard for how to spell and define words from an American’s point of view. Prior to his dictionary there was quite a bit of confusion for what a standard was for so many words that were spoken/written in America. You can imagine how school teachers, writers, lawyers, judges an so forth had a hard time communicating/educating. For this reason Webster took it upon himself to painstakingly work on a dictionary! Which makes him a very intriguing man to me. As a lot of men from his time- he was not boxed in by just one career or fixated on One speciality- but rather was multifaceted. This dictionary is a direct result of how American English broke from England’s way of spelling and vernacular.

I love this dictionary. It not only gives the definition, but he gives biblical examples as well. Which I love in this app. If all you had was the word of God and this dictionary, we have godly scholars today!

I love this dictionary! I use it to witness to people right alongside with my Holy Bible. People today don't understand how the English language had changed. I point out that Satan has been changing language in order to change the Word of God. I point this out between the NIV vs. the KJV & then have people look at the differences in the definitions of the word "morality." I am very glad this book is still with us today & an app on an iPhone, no less!

I have the real Webster's 1828 dictionary and this app does not have full definitions. It's very incomplete and I want a refund.

Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary Description
1187 chars

This app is a recreation of the Noah Webster 1828 two-volume dictionary. Its intrinsic value will not only be of great interest to poets and writers,

but also to those exploring American heritage and Christian readers.

The Noah Webster dictionary was used extensively by Emily Dickinson. We know that she made frequent and extensive use of Noah Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language in writing her poems, paying attention not only to definitions but also to Webster's etymologies and his illustrative quotations.

Being able to see how definitions have evolved today, having lost so much meaning since the original Noah Webster dictionary is fascinating. It is up to the current generation of poets and writers to bring back to life todays limited vocabulary with the rich definitions of Noah Webster.

It is an invaluable resource written when American values and patriotism were based on Christian values.

App design by professional app developer NASDA Studios. You can easily search or browse the entire dictionary and add favourites to revisit later.

Now updated to support iPhone5! Still works perfectly on the iPhone4 and iPhone3GS!
