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.

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.

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.
