Category Archives: The Devil’s Dictionary
DictionaryNet’s mission is direct you to valuable dictionaries and glossaries covering a wide range of fields. When envisioning my blog, I strongly rejected the idea to actually place a dictionary for directed access on my blog. Well, there is one dictionary that is too much of a temptation to me. I simply couldn’t resist adding Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary. I spent too many hours enjoying this witty work of “Bitter Bierce”.
Actually you will find quite a number of online versions of the Devil Dictionary. So why another one? Certainly out of admiration for this work, but my idea is that in a next step I will find a way to enable you to comment and easily share EACH of the definitions. Please bear with me, until I worked that out.
For now – I cordially invite you to browse and enjoy the Devil’s Dictionary. If you are not familiar with this dictionary, published in 1906, be warned: Political correctness has no entry in this dictionary.
