Celebrate today by learning a new word every day. This day was created in honor of Noah Webster’s birthday. It is set to emphasize the importance of learning and using the dictionary.
Noah Webster Jr. was an American lexicographer, textbook pioneer, English-
language spelling reformer, political writer, editor, and prolific author. He has been called the “Father of American Scholarship and Education”. His blue-backed speller books taught five generations of American children how to spell and read.
To honor this day I wanted to suggest trying to learn a new word every day. I believe this only will increase our use of vocabulary but it would also train our mind in learning some new every day.
