In an episode of Blackadder, the protagonist’s stupid servant Baldrick uses the manuscript of Johnson’s dictionary to make a nice, warm fire. When the protagonist tries to rewrite the dictionary, Baldrick contributes: ‘Dog. Not a cat.’
In 1768- Encyclopaedia Britannica, it is written: WOMAN, the female of man. See HOMO.
Maybe we should have a milder view on Baldrick.
