"A hundred visions and revisions": Malone's annotations to Johnson's Dictionary
- Alternative title:
- Presented at Language and Usage session
Researchers on Samuel Johnson's Dictionary have carefully analysed the lexicographer's methodology and expanded on the technicalities of his compilation, with regard to both the first edition of 1755 and the fourth, revised edition of 1773. The early reception and criticism of the Dictionary have also been studied, especially as far as the awkwardness and idiosyncrasy of some of Johnson's definitions are concerned.
