Table of Contents

 

 

This online version has the same text and pagination as the second printing of the Second Edition. I have resisted the temptation to make modifications. There is one exception. Page ranges in the index (e.g. 15-17) have been expanded to individual pages (e.g. 15, 16, 17) to facilitate linking from the index to the text.

It has been pointed out to me that the abbreviation 'OED' is not known to everyone. My apologies. It stands for the Oxford English Dictionary.
