It is a language book. Now, tho' I have differed from them in Method, yet I am of Opinion this Collection may serve to the same End, with equal Profit and greater Pleasure to the Reader. For, what are Epithets, but Adjectives that denote and express the Qualities of the Substantive to which they are joined? as Purple, Rosie, Smiling, Dewey, Morning: Dim, Gloomy, Silent, Night. What Synonyms, but Words of a like Signification? as Fear, Dread, Terror, Consternation, Affright, Dismay, &c. Are they not then naturally to be sought for in the Descriptions of Persons and Things?
