“With a great sense of pride I offer myself up as a volunteer.”

“Enclosed, please find one-thousand word slips with corresponding quotations from the height and depth of literature. I have derived a key, a type of dictionary within a dictionary that allows for the amassing of words with addended quotations. My request is simple. To make your burden light. Write to me. Tell me what specific words at present shimmer and fade at your grasp. Let useful others troll the oceans with their nets cast wide. I shall throw my line and pluck the very quotes that evade you when you call upon me to do so.”

1667 Milton “Paradise Lost”. “Very truly yours W.C. Minor, Crowthorne, Berkshire.”

我怀着自豪的心情毛遂自荐为志愿者

随信附上一千个单词以及他们的在古籍及经典文学中的引文。我发明了一个窍门,一种字典的字典,通过这个可以收集单词并添加引文。我的请求很简单,为你分忧。回信给我,告诉我现在哪些单词已经在你手中大放异彩,又有哪些依旧灰暗,就让其他贡献者在单词的海洋里广布大网吧。我就在这垂起钓竿,当你想召唤我,就将令你头疼的词挂在勾上。

1667 弥尔顿 《失乐园》 你最真挚的朋友 W.C. 迈纳,克劳索恩, 伯克郡
