    • 1889, William Gardner Hale The Cum‐Constructions, John Wilson and Son; Chapter VII, page #247:
      Whatever the a priori grammarian might do, the lexicographist, at any rate, ought to have thought it antecedently probably that, here and there, a construction with which a given idea, not expressed by it, was naturally associated, would come in time to be understood and used as expressing that idea.
