Dictionary Day

Date When celebrated : Always October 16 th

Dictionary Day is in honor of Noah Webster, considered the Father of the American Dictionary. Noah Webster was born on October 16, 1758.

The objective of this day is to emphasize the importance of dictionary skills, and seeks to improve vocabulary.

Webster began to write his dictionary at the age of 43. It took him 27 years to finish it! In addition to traditional English vocabulary, it contained uniquely American words.

Celebrate Dictionary Day by reading the "Good Book"......the Dictionary! We challenge you to learn some new words today.
