Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: MAIN & more

My Word of the Day

MAIN (MAIN) n.s.1. The gross; the bulk; the greater part.

The main of them may be reduced to language, and an improvement in wisdom, by seeing men. Locke.2. The sum; the whole; the general.

They allowed the liturgy and government of the church of England as to the main. King Charles.

These notions concerning coinage have, for the main, been put into writing above twelve months. Locke.3. The ocean.

A substitute shines brightly as a king, Until a king be by; and then his state Empties itself, as doth an inland brook Into the main of waters. Shakesp. Merchant of Venice.

Where’s the king. Bids the wind blow the earth into the sea;Or swell the curled waters ’bove the main, That things might change. Shakespeare’s King Lear.

He fell, and struggling in the main, Cry’d out for helping hands, but cry’d in vain. Dryden.

Say, why should the collected main Itself within itself contain. Why to its caverns should it sometimes creep, And with delighted silence sleep On the lov’d bosom of its parent deep. Prior.4. Violence; force.

He ’gan advance With huge force, and insupportable main, And towards him with dreadful fury prance. Fa. Qu.

With might and main He hasted to get up again. Hudibras, p. i.

With might and main they chac’d the murd’rous fox, With brazen trumpets, and inflated box. Dryden.5.[From manus, Latin.]A hand at dice.

Were it good, To set the exact wealth of all our states All at one cast; to set so rich a main In the nice hazard of one doubtful hour. Shakespeare.

To pass our tedious hours away, We throw a merry main. Earl Dorset’s Song.

Writing is but just like dice, And lucky mains make people wise:That jumbled words, if fortune throw them, Shall, well as Dryden, form a poem. Prior.6. The continent.

In 1589 we turned challengers, and invaded the main of Spain. Bacon’s War with Spain.7. A hamper. Ains.

When a friend in kindness tries To shew you where your error lies, Conviction does but more incense;Perverseness is your whole defence. Swift.2. Perversion; corruption. Not in use.

THREATENING (THRE’ATENING) n.s.[from threaten.]A menace; a denunciation of evil.

Æneas their assault undaunted did abide, And thus to Lausus, loud with friendly threat’ning cry’d. Dryden’s Virgil.

How impossible would it be for a master, that thus interceded with God for his servants, to use any unkind threatnings towards them, to damn and curse them as dogs and scoundrels, and treat them only as the dregs of the creation. Law.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: SYLLOGISTICAL & more

My Word of the Day

SYLLOGISTICAL (SYLLOGI’STICAL) SYLLOGISTICK (SYLLOGI’STICK) adj.[Gr.; from syllogism.] Retaining to a syllogism; consisting of a syllogism.

Though we suppose subject and predicate, and copula, and propositions and syllogistical connexions in their reasoning, there is no such matter; but the intire business is at the same moment present with them, without deducing one thing from another. Hale’s Origin of Mankind.

Though the terms of propositions may be complex, yet where the composition of the whole argument is thus plain, simple, and regular, it is properly called a simple syllogism, since the complexion does not belong to the syllogistick form of it. Watts’s Logick.

Our superfluous lacqueys and our peasants, Who in unnecessary action swarm About our squares of battle. Shakespeare’s Henry V.

A proper title of a peace, and purchas’d At a superfluous rate. Shakespeare.

As touching the ministring to the saints, it is superfluous to write. Bible2 Cor.ix. i.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: METEOR & more

My Word of the Day

METEOR (ME’TEOR) n.s.[meteore, Fr. les bodies in the air or sky that are of a flux and transitory nature.

Look’d he or red, or pale, or sad, or merrily. What observation mad’st thou in this case, Of his heart’s meteors tilting in his face. Shakespeare.

She began to cast with herself from what coast this blazing star must rise upon the horizon of Ireland; for there had the like meteor strong influence before. Bacon’s Henry VII.

These burning fits but meteors be, Whose matter in thee soon is spent:Thy beauty, and all parts which are in thee, Are an unchangeable firmament. Donne.

Then flaming meteors, hung in air, were seen, And thunders rattled through a sky serene. Dryden’sÆn.

Why was I rais’d the meteor of the world, Hung in the skies, and blazing as I travell’d, Till all my fires were spent; and then cast downward To be trod out by Cæsar. Dryden’s All for Love.

O poet, thou hadst been discreteer, Hanging the monarch’s hat so high, If thou hadst dubb’d thy star a meteor, Which did but blaze, and rove, and die. Prior.
