In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

born

BORN, pp. of bear. baurn. Brought forth, as an animal. A very useful distinction is observed by good authors, who, in the sense of produced or brought forth, write this word born; but in the sense of carried, write it borne. This difference of orthography renders obvious the difference of pronunciation.

1. To be born, is to be produced or brought into life. "Man is born to trouble." A man born a prince or a beggar. It is followed by of, before the mother or ancestors.

Man that is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. Job.14.

2. To be born, or born again, is to be regenerated and renewed; to receive spiritual life. John 3.

Why 1828?

Words have always fascinated me. I am saddened by the the deteriorating language of our country. Language is such a gift, such a tool. As a born again Christian, the original Biblical definitions of words is extremely important.

— Jo (Conesville, OH)

Word of the Day

voice

VOICE, n. [L. vox; voco. The sense of the verb is to throw, to drive out sound; and voice is that which is driven out.]

1. Sound or audible noise uttered by the mouth, either of human beings or of other animals. We say, the voice of a man is loud or clear; the voice of a woman is soft or musical; the voice of a dog is loud or harsh; the voice of a bird is sweet or melodious. The voice of human beings is articulate; that of beasts, inarticulate. The voices of men are different, and when uttered together, are often dissonant.

2. Any sound made by the breath; as the trumpet's voice.

3. A vote; suffrage; opinion or choice expressed. Originally voice was the oral utterance of choice, but it now signifies any vote however given.

Some laws ordain, and some attend the choice of holy senates, and elect by voice.

I have no words; my voice is in my sword.

4. Language; words; expression.

Let us call on God in the voice of his church.

5. In Scripture, command; precept.

Ye would not be obedient to the voice of the Lord your God. Deut. 8.

6. Sound.

After the fire, a still small voice. 1Kings 19.

Canst thou thunder with a voice like him? Job. 40.

The floods have lifted up their voice. Ps. 93.

7. Language; tone; mode of expression.

I desire to be present with you now, and to change my voice. Gal. 4.

8. In grammar, a particular mode of inflecting or conjugating verbs; as the active voice; the passive voice.

VOICE, v.t.

1. To rumor; to report.

It was voiced that the king purposed to put to death Edward Plantagenet. [Little used.]

Random Word

accent

AC'CENT, n. [L. accentus, from ad and cano, cantum, to sing; See Accend.]

1. The modulation of the voice in reading or speaking, as practiced by the ancient Greeks, which rendered their rehearsal musical. More strictly, in English,

2. A particular stress or force of voice upon certain syllables of words, which distinguishes them from the others. Accent is of two kinds, primary and secondary; as in as'pira'tion. In uttering this word, we observe the first and third syllables are distinguished; the third by a full sound, which constitutes the primary accent; the first by a degree of force in the voice which is less than that of the primary accent, but evidently greater than that which falls on the second and fourth syllables.

When the full accent falls on a vowel, that vowel has its long sound, as in vo'cal; but when it falls on an articulation or consonant, the preceding vowel is short, as in hab'it. Accent alone regulates English verse.

3. A mark or character used in writing to direct the stress of the voice in pronunciation. Our ancestors borrowed from the Greek language three of these characters, the acute, the grave and circumflex. In the Greek, the first shows when the voice is to be raised; the second, when it is to be depressed; and the third, when the vowel is to be uttered with an undulating sound.

4. A modulation of the voice expressive of passions or sentiments.

The tender accents of a woman's cry.

5. Manner of speaking.

A man of plain accent. Obs.

6. Poetically, words, language, or expressions in general.

Words, on your wings, to heaven her accents bear,

Such words as heaven alone is fit to hear.

7. In music, a swelling of sounds, for the purpose of variety or expression. the principal accent falls on the first note in the bar, but the third place in common time requires also an accent.

8. A peculiar tone or inflection of voice.

AC'CENT, v.t. To express accent; to utter a syllable with a particular stress or modulation of the voice. In poetry, to utter or pronounce in general. Also to note accents by marks in writing.

About 1828

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.

Victoria Maizes MD- Facing the End of Life While not an easy thing to write it can be a healing exercise. We look inward to discover the essential truths we have learned over a lifetime, face up to our failures, and consider which things really count.
Victoria Maizes MD- Your Belief System No two people are exactly alike. How do you prefer to be treated? On a scale that goes from natural and minimally invasive – to very aggressive treatment, where do you place yourself? What are your beliefs about what precipitated an illness? What does your intuition tell you to do to enhance healing? There are situations in medicine where everyone agrees that there is one best approach. More often, in medicine, there are shades of gray where a patient’s beliefs and preferences become incredibly important when making treatment decisions.
Victoria Maizes MD- Cancer Side Effects Side effects can result from treatment of cancer or the cancer itself. While there are no guaranteed ways to alleviate all the side-effects that come along with cancer, integrative medicine offers a wide range of approaches to reducing side effects of conventional cancer treatment.
Victoria Maizes MD- Preparing for Pregnancy With excitement, joy, and perhaps a bit of trepidation, you’re considering having a baby. This primal urge is an intrinsic part of being human. What could be more natural or straightforward? Every day, women become pregnant, sometimes unintentionally. On the other hand, many women have difficulty conceiving, which can be emotionally traumatic, exhausting, or frustrating. My opinion is that pregnancy is well worth preparing for.
Victoria Maizes MD- Reduce your Chemical Exposure There are over 85,000 industrial chemicals on the market today. Only about 200 of them have been tested to be sure that they are safe when it comes to influencing human health. Does that surprise you? It did me! In 1976 Congress passed the Toxic Chemicals Substance Act which most experts agree has no “teeth.” This has left the chemical industry in the US to be mostly self-regulated with regard to human safety.
