Abstract

From the preceding sections it is clear that the vocabulary of one era differs from that of another. The times are not grossly different as from Elizabethan days or ones of the Kit Kat Club or from Abraham Lincoln to the present; rather, two eras with perhaps a 40–45 percent overlap of living adult persons. The two vocabularies differ in a lexical dialect of time.
