—————————–
On April 15, 1755, a great book was published in London. It wasn’t a novel or a biography. It was a dictionary of the English language. These days, a dictionary is written by a group of people called editors, but Samuel Johnson basically wrote this dictionary by himself. He worked for more than 8 years and included over 42,000 words. He wrote a definition of each word, but then he found sentences of great English writers such as Shakespeare, Milton, and Dryden to show how the words were used. For 150 years, Johnson’s dictionary was the number one dictionary of English. (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
