  1. Thank you for this enlightening entry. I have only just searched for Dr.Johnson’s great work.

    Couldn’t find “dyscombobulation”. Was this an omission?

  3. Discombobulation is too new of a word (and too American) to appear in Johnson. The earliest reference to it in the Oxford English Dictionary is 1839.
