Webster’s New International Dictionary of the English Language, 1909, is a public domain dictionary, as is also the revised 1913 edition. These dictionaries have been vastly used to expand Wiktionary with more definitions.

These dictionaries were published by the G. & C. Merriam Company of Springfield, Massachusetts.

Wikification structure[edit]

The exposition order is alphabetic, after beginning with pronunciation:

1. Pronunciation

2. Adjective

3. Adverb

4. Noun

5. Pronoun

6. Verb.

They use a first-level title (i.e., ==Pronunciation==).

In the verb, include imp., p. p., p. pr. and vb. n. forms.

Intransitive and transitive[edit]

In verbs, there is a separation between intransitive and transitive forms, using a second-level title (i.e., ===Intransitive===).


There are two different lists of abbreviations depending on the type.
