Transcriber's notes:

(1) Numbers following letters (without space) like C2 were originally printed in subscript. Letter subscripts are preceded by an underscore, like C n.

(2) Characters following a carat (^) were printed in superscript.

(3) Side notes were relocated to function as titles of their respective paragraphs.

(4) Macrons and breves above letters and dots below letters were not inserted.

(5) [root] stands for the root symbol; [alpha], [beta], etc. for greek letters.

(6) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

ARTICLE ENGLISH LANGUAGE: "The writers of each district wrote in the dialect familiar to them; and between extreme forms the difference was so great as to amount to unintelligibility ..." 'familiar' amended from 'familar'.

ARTICLE ENGLISH LITERATURE: "Even more portentous in its superhuman dignity was the style of Edward Gibbon, who combined with the unspiritual optimism of Hume and Robertson a far more concentrated devotion to his subject ..." 'combined' amended from 'conbined'.

ARTICLE ENTERITIS: "The chief symptom is diarrhoea. The term "enteric fever" has recently come into use instead of "typhoid" for the latter disease; but see Typhoid Fever." 'symptom' amended from 'sympton'.

ARTICLE ENTRE MINHO E DOURO: "The methods and implements of the farmers are, however, most primitive, and at the beginning of the 20th century it was not unusual to see a mule, or even a woman, harnessed with the team of oxen to an old fashioned wooden plough." 'it' amended from 'is'.

ARTICLE ENTRE RIOS: "... a province of the eastern Argentine Republic, forming the southern part of a region sometimes described as the Argentine Mesopotamia ..." 'southern' amended from 'sourthern'.

ARTICLE EPHRAIM: "... and Ephraim's proud and ambitious character is indicated in its demands as narrated in Josh. xvii. 14; Judg. viii. 1 3, xii. 1 6. throughout, Ephraim played a distinctive and prominent part; it probably excelled Manasseh in numerical strength ..." 'throughout' amended from 'thoughout'.

ARTICLE EPIC POETRY: "... and Teofilo Folengo (1491 1544), ridiculed the whole school in an Orlandino of 1526." 'Folengo' amended from 'Folango'.

ARTICLE EPIDAURUS: "It was abandoned during the middle ages; its inhabitants took possession of the promontory of Minoa ..." 'possession' amended from 'posession'.

ARTICLE EPILOGUE: "... and then explained to the audience what an extremely interesting play it had been. In the second case, when the author was less confident ..." 'extremely' amended from 'exremely'.
