Noah Webster's Linguistic Influences.
Kreidler, Charles W.
Language & Communication, v18 n2 p101-10 Apr 1998
Examines ways in which Noah Webster's linguistic theories and work on dictionaries influenced North American English lexicography, arguing that his impact on American education was great because his spellers and dictionaries monopolized a rapidly growing market, and influence on lexicography was substantial because he insisted on the validity of national usage and the correlation between cultural and lexical exchange.
