An English Dictionary for the Use of Schools. By John

Ogilvie, LL.D.

(Blackie and Son.)—This sohool *dictionary is an abridgment of Dr. Ogilvie's Student's English Dictionary, and is brief and perspicuous. The pronunciation is put in by Mr. Richard Cull, and proceeds on rather curious phonetic principles. Each word has pronunciation, meaning, and derivation shortly given, while verbs are farther supplied with their

preterites and participles.
