Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary

Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary

Nasda Studios

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!
