The Initial Reaction. When Webster first proposed the dictionary it was received with condemnation “If, as Mr. Webster asserts, it is true that many new words have already crept into the language of the United States, he would be much better employed in rooting out those anxious weeds, than in mingling them with the flowers.” – Joseph Dennie, Gazette of the United States, 1800. The political atmosphere of the time period was responsible for the failure This was the era when the modern political parties formed Federalist Party: favored centralized government and opposed the extension of suffrage – Webster was a Federalist Republican Party: favored decentralized government and supported the extension of suffrage Webster was criticized both by federalists (for his decision to include common words) and by the republicans (for being a federalist) “The lexicographer’s business is solely to collect, arrange and define the words that usage presents to his hands. He has no right to proscribe words; he is to present them as they are.” – Webster.
