Lex`i*cog"ra*pher (?), n. [Gr. ; ; dictionary + to write: cf. F. lexicographe. See Lexicon.]
The author or compiler of a lexicon or dictionary.
Every other author may aspire to praise; the lexicographer can only hope to escape reproach; and even this negative recompense has been yet granted to very few.
