2. Because it is the most complete and elaborate Dictionary of the English Language ever published.

3. Because it contains nearly twenty thousand words and meanings not to be found in any other single Dictionary.

4. Because it gives the correct mode of spelling and of pronouncing words, and presents, in cases of dispute or of doubt, the different methods and opinions of all those who have given special attention to these subjects.

5. Because in the Origin and Derivation of Words it is more accurate than any other English Dictionary, presenting, in cases of uncertainty, the opinions of all eminent philologists and scholars.

6. Because the Grammatical Forms and Inflections of Words are given more fully than in any other English Dictionary.

10. Because, in Natural History, Science, and Art, it not only includes accurate descriptions and definitions of objects, words, and terms before known or used, but also of those recently discovered, invented, or introduced.

11. Because, in words of old English, in local and provincial words and expressions, both English and American, in phrases, in modern words and significations, in technical and commercial words and terms, it is far more complete than any similar work.

12. Because there are numerous notes scattered throughout the volume, containing rare, valuable, and interesting information on various important subjects, as well as critical remarks on the orthography, the pronunciation, the etymology, the grammatical form and construction, and on the peculiar technical, local, provincial, and American uses of words.

13. Because it contains copious Pronouncing Vocabularies of Geographical and Proper Names, a full Collection of Phrases and Quotations from Foreign Languages, a Key to the Pronunciation of Classical and Scripture Proper Names, and a complete List, of Abbreviations used in writing and printing.

14. Because it contains elaborate, intelligible, and practical Treatises on the Origin, Formation, and Etymology of the English Language, on Orthography, Pronunciation, English Grammar, and other important subjects.

15. Because all the subjects included in its various departments are treated with good faith, and strict impartiality towards all men and all sects.
