Did you know that the oldest American dictionary is the 1828 Webster’s dictionary?  It is special because it was the first dictionary to list the words of the American people, defining our language.  (And language is really a social phenomenon.)  This dictionary is also special because it was formed before the time of political correctness.  Therefore it contains a lot of religious reference within its definitions.  I have the compact edition for our family, and it also comes in a hardback expanded version.  The online version also lets you look up specific words as well.  Have fun!
