Samual Johnson was an american and as I have pointed out, American misspellings are where the error ORIGINATED.

I know I promised to end this, but this is too much. I'm shaking my head in disbelief as I type. Samuel Johnson was the 18th century English essayist who compiled the first English dictionary. Dr Johnson is an extremely famous name in British literature. He's also one of the best sources of sardonic British quotes that you're likely to find.

An American gentleman by the name of Webster, produced the first American dictionary not long after Johnson's. The two writers applied different rules to spelling, but the "...our" vs "...or" difference doesn't apply to the word forty. Sorry, but it doesn't.

I'll try again to stay off this topic.

LessFact is unbelievable, reminiscent of a Monty Python sketch.
He spelt Samuel Johnson's first name, "Samual" and didn't even know his nationality???

To save LessFact from being confused here5207, Johnson produced an English dictionary.

I even suggested numerous times, that these 2500
very important to our Economy fossil fuels burners, can write off on April 15th, coal, oil, natural gas very legal raw materials depletion allowances, so as NOT to pass on levies to the already strapped American home electricity consumers, and small/medium/large businesses, monthly energy bills!
Legal because non-depleting SUN, WIND, WATER HYDRO, and breeder Pu239 Nuclear Plants reactor piles, cannot write off, as those modes of energy are not obviously being depleted!!

Ooops. You are correct. My apologies. I must have confused him with some other person or combination of persons.

However, you do not show that HE has written a dictionary in which Fourty is spelled forty.

By the way. I assume he also spelled Forscore and Forteen? Not to mention Too Plus Too equals For..

What a maroon..

It is possilbe that he was the originator of the U.S. misspelling as his dictionary would have been the primary reference in the colonies.

He also seems to have a few issues with other words. i.e.

"Excise: a hateful tax levied upon commodities and adjudged not by the common judges of property but wretches hired by those to whom excise is paid"

"Lexicographer: a writer of dictionaries; a harmless drudge that busies himself in tracing the original and detailing the signification of words"

"Oats: a grain which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people"

Something of an amateur but first in his field.

Probably not, neither do quotes from another well known book, do they?

(Gen 8:6 KJV) "And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:"
(Gen 50:3 KJV) "And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days."

(Exo 34:28-29 KJV) "And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments."
(Deu 10:10 NIV) "Now I had stayed on the mountain forty days and nights, as I did the first time, and the LORD listened to me at this time also. It was not his will to destroy you."
(Exo 34:29 KJV) "And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him."
(Num 13:25 KJV) "And they returned from searching of the land after forty days."

One, two, three, four [not for}, five, six.. Forty is correct! My point being, IDIOTS, is that this is not a Topix abstract on word roots! But on the effect of waste heat from Nuclear power plants, and any intelligent reader, gives allowances for the writer's often 'phonetics' way of spelling! We technical writers don't have time to go to a dictionary, or use 'spell-check', especially if we are writing 100, or 200 words, without the luxury of an Editor, as many times, when I have double-checked a chemical equation, in text book, taking time, I return and fill-in the
4 digits number, ONLY to find the entire passage
to have been erased!!

Well, there is at least one U.S. "Samuel L Jackson". I believe he is in movies so his name would be well linked to the USA. I could not have known you were referring to some 18th century character, though perhaps I should have.

Not unless you can prove that HE didn't mispell it. As I said, the U.S. mispelling was PROBABLY due to copying his amateurish mistake.

http://www.archive.org/stream/dictionaryofeng...

My point is that dictionaries are the product of the epystimologist and he showed a lot of amateurishness. Being first is NOT the same as being right. First is actually often the worst and corrected in later drafts. I am still trying to find an online reference to say a Canadian dictionary from before the advent of MS-Word.

Are you trying to convince me that the bible was written in American English?? Your logic processes are kind of hard to fathom. The spell checker used on the 'translation' would probably be MS-Word in any recent publication.. You seem bent on projecting modern American usage domination as if the Internet can 'revise' history.

But all this is STILL a distraction.

You cannot stop trolling by going away. He will just do the same thing on whomever replaces my posts.

The point is that I learned 'correct English spelling' very well and will use it even if MS-word takes over the rest of the world. SOMEONE has to maintain their integrity from these 'revisonists'.

It is part of the reason I post corrections to the AGW denial crap they post. I won't put up with their distortions and distractions there either.
