THE ORIGIN OF THE HOLIDAYDriven by a desire to unify the American way of speaking and spelling English, Noah Webster started work on the first American dictionary at age 43. He thought Americans should have their own distinctly American (rather than British) way of spelling, pronouncing, and using words. But at that time, Americans in different regions had no unifying standard of language. Webster's dictionary was the first step in changing that. After 27 years of labor In 1783, Noah Webster created what is considered to be the first dictionary of America. It had 70,000 words in it. It's no accident that National Dictionary Day is on Noah Webster's birthday! He is the father of the American dictionary.

CONCLUSIONSWhy is using a dictionary so important?A student of English without a dictionary is like a hunter without a gun! It’s so funny if you think your teacher can be your dictionary, too because the teacher is not always available. So it is very important for you to have one because It shows you the meaning (s). It shows the spelling. It shows the pronunciation. It teaches some grammar. It gives you good example sentences. Helps you learn more and better. You will feel relaxed in class because you have checked every word before. So do not forget to buy an advanced dictionary for home and one pocket one for your class or anywhere else.
