^ Whilst not all of these changes are strictly necessary they are all useful in the context of this tutorial.

.Gove justified the change by the company's publication of Webster's Biographical Dictionary in 1943 and Webster's Geographical Dictionary in 1949, and the fact that most of the subjects removed could be found in encyclopedias.^ Webster’s Third was a complete new edition that not only added 50,000 words and as many new senses for existing words, but also made sweeping revisions, eliminating non-lexical matter such as a pronouncing gazetteer, a biographical dictionary, and so on, and removing most words which had been obsolete for more than 200 years.

Criticisms

Gove's stance was an exemplar of descriptivist linguistics: describing language as it is or has been used. As David M. Glixon put it in the Saturday Review: "Having descended from God's throne of supreme authority, the Merriam folks are now seated around the city desk, recording like mad." Jacques Barzun said this stance made Webster's Third "the longest political pamphlet ever put together by a party", done with "a dogma that far transcends the limits of lexicography". The dictionary's treatment of "ain't" was subject to particular scorn, the word receiving no more severe comment from Webster's Third than: "though disapproved by many and more common in less educated speech, used orally in most parts of the U.S. by many cultivated speakers esp. in the phrase ain't I".
.The Globe and Mail of Toronto editorialized: "a dictionary's embrace of the word 'ain't' will comfort the ignorant, confer approval upon the mediocre, and subtly imply that proper English is the tool of only the snob".[citation needed] The New York Times editorialized that "Webster's has, it is apparent, surrendered to the permissive school that has been busily extending its beachhead in English instruction in the schools ...^ The New York Times editorialized that ‘Webster's has, it is apparent, surrendered to the permissive school that has been busily extending its beachhead in English instruction in the schools .
