Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: MISCREANT & more

My Word of the Day

MISCREANT (MI’SCREANT) n.s.[mescreant, French.]1. One that holds a false faith; one who believes in false gods.

Their prophets justly condemned them as an adulterous seed, and a wicked generation of miscreants, which had forsaken the living God. Hooker, b. v.2. A vile wretch.

Now by Apollo, king, Thou swear’st thy gods in vain. —— O vassal! miscreant!Shakespeare’s King Lear.

If extraordinary lenity proves ineffectual, those miscreants ought to be made sensible that our constitution is armed with force. Addison’s Freeholder, No. 50.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: MUCUS & more

My Word of the Day

MUCUS (MU’CUS) n.s.[Latin.] Is most properly used for that which flows from the papillary processes through the os cribriforme into the nostrils; but it is also used for any slimy liquor or moisture, as that which daubs over and guards the bowels and all the chief passages in the body; and it is separated by the mucilaginous glands. Quincy.

In the action of chewing, the mucus mixeth with the aliment: the mucus is an humour different from the spittle, and the great quantity of air which it contains helps to dissolve the aliment. Arbuthnoton Aliments.

Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: UNITY & more

My Word of the Day

UNITY (U’NITY) n.s.[unitas, Lat.]1. The state of being one.

Those hereticks introduced a plurality of Gods; and so made the profession of the unity part of the symbolum, that should discriminate the orthodox from them. Hammond.

The production of one being the destruction of another, although they generate, they increase not; and must not be said to multiply, who do not transcend an unity. Brown.

Man is to beget Like of his like; his image multiply’d:In unity defective; which requires Collateral love, and dearest amity. Milton’s Par. Lost.

Whatever we can consider as one thing, suggests to the understanding the idea of unity. Locke.2. Concord; conjunction.

That which you hear, you’ll swear You see, there is such unity in the proofs. Shakespeare.

We, of all christians, ought to promote unity among ourselves and others. Sprat’s Sermons.3. Agreement; uniformity.

To the avoiding of dissension, it availeth much, that there be amongst them an unity, as well in ceremonies as in doctrine. Hooker, b. iv.4. Principle of dramatick writing, by which the tenour of the story, and propriety of representation is preserved.

The unities of time, place, and action, are exactly observed. Dryden’s Pref. to All for Love.

Although in poetry it be absolutely necessary that the unities of time, place, and action should be thoroughly understood, there is still something more essential, that elevates and astonishes the fancy. Addison.5.[In law.] Unity of possession is a joint possession of two rights by several titles. For example, I take a lease of land from one upon a certain rent; afterwards I buy the fee-simple. This is an unity of possession, whereby the lease is extinguished; by reason that I, who had before the occupation only for my rent, am become lord of the same, and am to pay my rent to none. Cowel.
