Note: Dictionary Words

By E du Boulay , published July 1912

Abstract

Du Boulay provides a number of nautical words taken from a “Collection of Voyages and Travels”, which was published in 1745. The words had been used by Sir Francis Drake in his diary of his voyage to the Pacific in 1577 and from the records of the first Dutch vessels to sail to the East Indies in 1595. As none of the words were any longer in general use he sought help from members in establishing their meanings.
