Excerpt from A Dissertation on the Influence of Opinions on Language and of Language on Opinions, Which Gained the Prussian Royal Academy's Prize on That Subject

The discourse, of which the following sheets are a translation, was crowned by the Royal Academy of Berlin in 1759, and we flatter ourselves that it will be the more acceptable to the public, as in the collection of the pieces which concurred for the prize, this, contrary to custom, has appeared only in the German tongue. But what chiefly determined us is, on one hand, the importance of the subject:, as concerning philosophers of all times and all nations; and on the other, that masterly strength with which this subject: is here handled byone of the most: celebrated scholars in Germany; so that, with all the inferiority of a translation, and from so great an original, we hope the good office herein intended to foreigners, will meet with a kind acceptance.
