Les mots sont le lien des sociétés, le véhicule des lumieres, la base des sciences, les dépositaires des découvertes d'une Nation, de son savoir, de sa politesse, de ses idées: la connoissance des mots est donc un moyen indispensable pour acquérir celle des choses; de-là ces Ouvrages appellés Dictionnaires, Vocabulaires ou Glossaires, qui offrent l'étendue des connoissances de chaque Peuple.-Gebelin.
