I have not found this word in any of our Dictionaries, but have met with it in so respectable a writer, that I cannot resist the temptation of

inserting it here, especially as it serves to fill ||

up a niche in language, which, I think, never should be empty: I mean, that wherever there is a noum established, there should always be a verb, to correspond to it. The passage from which I have taken this word has so much real #. sense, and such true genuine humour, that

cannot refrain from extracting the whole paragraph, and relying on the pardon of the ināpoor for the digression.—“It may be thought “ridiculous to assert, that morals have any con* nection with purity of language, or that the “precision of truth may be violated through de“fect of critical exactness in three degrees of * comparison; yet how frequently do we hear, ‘‘ from the dealers in superlatives, of most admira. “ble, super-excellent, and quite perfect people, who, “to plain persons, not bred in the school of ex“aggeration, would appear mere common char“acters, not rising above the level of mediocri* ty! By this negligence in the just application “ of words, we shall be as much misled by these “ trope and figure ladies when they degrade, as ** when they panegyrize; for, to a plain sober “judgment, a tradesman may not be the most “good-for-nothing fellow that ever existed, merely * because it was impossible for him to execute, “in an hour, an order which required a week; ** a lady may not be the most hideous fright the * world ever saw, though the make of her gown “may have been obsolete for a month ; nor * may one's young friend's father be a monster “of y, though he may be a quiet gentle* man, who does not choose to live at watering“ places, but likes to have his daughter stay at “home with him in the country.”—-Hannah JMore's Strictures on Modern Female Education, vol. i. page 216. If the usage of this word stood in need of farther support, we have it from the best authority. The author thinks it superfluous to panegyrize truth; yet, in favour of sound and rational rules (which must be founded in truth. or they are good for nothing,) he ventures to quote the Stagirite himself: “It is not “possible for a true opinion, to be contrary to “another true one.”—Harris's Philological In
