2221. DICTIONARY, An Anglo-Saxon.—

There are several things wanting to promote
this improvement. [The recovery of the
lost Anglo-Saxon and other words.] To reprint
the Saxon books in modern type; reform
their orthography; publish in the same way the
treasures still existing in manuscript. And
more than all things we want a dictionary on
the plan of Stephens or Scapula, in which the
Saxon root, placed alphabetically, shall be followed
by all its cognate modifications of nouns,
verbs, &c., whether Anglo-Saxon, or found in
the dialects of subsequent ages.—
To J. Evelyn Denison. Washington ed. vii, 418.
(M. 1825)
