The Rt. Rev. Samuel Fallows, A.M., B.D.



Wishing to have an extensive list of Synonyms and Antonyms for another project, Isettled on Fallows’ amazing publication. However, I could not find an OCR textwhich was clear of the many OCR-scan errors. I did my own OCR, which joinedmany of the line-end hyphenated words automatically, but which still resultedin a very large number of nearly identical (to other OCR scans) errors. This isprobably not the fault of the OCR software, but rather of the quality of the 19thCentury source type and ink, which tended to be far from crisp. The softwarewas not entirely perfect though and it would often invert n and u, or rendereither of those letters as ii, and render i as l (lower case L). R and K wereregularly mixed, so ROCK could be rendered as KOCR – if it managed to get thecircular letters correct. Just one example of variation is to be found in therendering of the coded abbreviation for SYNONYM, ‘SYN.’ It might be renderedwith a period, comma, both or none; and some of these variations wererecorded: \ BTH \ 2vN. \ 8_vs. \ BYN, \ KYN. \ PYN. \ RYN. \ SIN, \ Srn. \STIC. \ STK. \ STN. \ STN., \ STW. \ SVN_ \ SXN. \ SY.V. \ SY:. \ SYH. \ SYK. \SYN, \ Syn, \ SYN. \ SYN. \ SYN._ \ SYS,. \ SYS. \ SYW. \ SYX\. and \YX\. ! I know! Grrr!

Anyhow, with lots of rekeying, lots of rules to fix as many as aberrations as possible,and employing a personal digital dictionary of over 600,000 words, I checkedmany of the fragments and verified that the OCR scanner had done very well, infact. Those fragments which eventually could not be distinguished by eye orlogic were left ‘as is’ and bracketed thus: {[unreadable]?}. When replaced intothe text in their correct sequence, some of those could be deduced from their context,but I will leave that for the next editor (possibly you, dear reader.) Thedictionary is not perfect or complete, and it did not distinguish n-Grams whichare clearly adequate language. Having corrected many broken words, I re-sortedthem back into original order, added ‘KEY:’ to the principal, and pasted thelot to the Word Processor (below) for study, uploading and further corrections.

I did, in fact, Google several scores of unrecognised but right-looking words andfound many were accurate though out of common use in today’s English. VictorianEnglish vocab was quite extensive. Did Fallows do a dictionary of word meanings(I wish)?

·Serendip Clip, Nowra, NSW, Australia, February 2016.

Update August, 2022: This is NOT a replication of the book. It is highly reformatted, apparentlyto create a parsable file for data input. Many corrections have been made, but there are stilla large number of bad words, formatting errors, and mismatched internal references.

Additional note: '\' (backslash) indicates italics.
