Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: THREATENING & more

My Word of the Day

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.
