Excerpt from Eutropius, Books I and II: With Notes, Vocabulary, and Exercises
W'hile quite agreeing in the use of dictionaries for upper forms, the Editors are of opinion that for small boys it causes great waste of time, and much mental confusion, without any corresponding a... dvantage. As a rule boys cannot understand how a word can be used in more than one sense they take the first meaning given in the dictionary, and if it is not the meaning required by the context, so much the worse for the sense. When boys come to such an age that they are able to realize the necessity of making a fit choice, the working of the dictionary is no doubt a valuable mental exercise.
