Diary, November 1667 (Webster's Spanish Thesaurus Edition)
Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of difficult and potentially ambiguous English words. Rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority compared to "difficult, yet commonly used" words. Rather than supply a single translation, many words are translated for a variety of meanings in Korean, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of English, and avoid using the notes as a pure translation crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not translated on a page, chances are that it has been translated on a previous page.
Passages from the Diary of Samuel Pepys
The diary of Samuel Pepys is like no other book in the world. One reason is that its writer had no idea of making a book at all. He never dreamed of human eyes falling upon his blessedly frank and naked page. The record was a secret between himself and his own soul. To those who love humanity and vivid, unconscious writing, it is infinitely delightful and precious.
