                                       U

   U  (?),  the twenty-first letter of the English alphabet, is a cursive
   form of the letter V, with which it was formerly used interchangeably,
   both  letters  being  then used both as vowels and consonants. U and V
   are  now,  however,  differentiated,  U  being used only as a vowel or
   semivowel,  and V only as a consonant. The true primary vowel sound of
   U, in Anglo-Saxon, was the sound which it still retains in most of the
   languages  of Europe, that of long oo, as in tool, and short oo, as in
   wood,  answering  to  the  French ou in tour. Etymologically U is most
   closely  related  to  o,  y  (vowel), w, and v; as in two, duet, dyad,
   twice;  top, tuft; sop, sup; auspice, aviary. See V, also O and Y. See
   Guide to Pronunciation,  130-144.

   To  verbs to express the contrary, and not the simple negative, of the
   action  of  the  verb  to  which  it  is prefixed; as in uncoil, undo,
   unfold.  (b) To nouns to form verbs expressing privation of the thing,
   quality,  or state expressed by the noun, or separation from it; as in
   unchild,  unsex. Sometimes particles and participial adjectives formed
   with  this  prefix  coincide  in  form  with compounds of the negative
   prefix un- (see 2d Un-); as in undone (from undo), meaning unfastened,
   ruined;  and  undone  (from  2d  un-  and  done) meaning not done, not
   finished.  Un- is sometimes used with an intensive force merely; as in

   adjective,  or  participle  used adjectively, or adverb, from which it
   may  be  desired to form a corresponding negative adjective or adverb,
   and  is  also,  but  less freely, prefixed to nouns. Un- sometimes has
   merely an intensive force; as in unmerciless, unremorseless. I. Un- is
   prefixed to adjectives, or to words used adjectively. Specifically: --
   (a)  To adjectives, to denote the absence of the quality designated by
   the  adjective; as, -- <-- Note: here is a list of word beginning with

   (c)  To  present  particles which come from intransitive verbs, or are
   themselves  employed  as  adjectives,  to  mark  the  absence  of  the
   activity,  disposition,  or condition implied by the participle; as, -
   <--  here is the (c) list of "un" words formd from present participles
   --> ---- and the like.

     NOTE: The ab ove classes of words are unlimited in extent, and such
     compounds  may  be  formed  by  any  writer or speaker at will from
     almost all the adjectives or participles in the language, excepting
     those which have a recognized and usual negative correspondent with
     the  prefix -in. No attempt will be made, therefore, to define them
     all  in  this  Dictionary; many will be omitted from its Vocabulary
     which  are  negations of the simple word, and are readily explained
     by prefixing a not to the latter. Derivatives of these words in -ly
     and  -ness will also, for the most part, be omitted for the same or
     similar  reasons.  There will be inserted as separate articles with
     definitions,  the  following:  --  1.  Those which have acquired an
     opposed  or  contrary,  instead  of a merely negative, meaning; as,
     unfriendly, ungraceful, unpalatable, unquiet, and the like; or else
     an  intensive  sense  more  than  a prefixed not would express; as,
     unending,  unparalleled,  undisciplined, undoubted, unsafe, and the
     like.  2. Those which have the value of independent words, inasmuch
     as  the  simple words are either not used at all, or are rarely, or
     at   least   much   less   frequently,   used;   as,   unavoidable,
     unconscionable, undeniable, unspeakable, unprecedented, unruly, and
     the  like;  or  inasmuch as they are used in a different sense from
     the  usual  meaning  of  the primitive, or especially in one of the
     significations   of   the  latter;  as,  unaccountable,  unalloyed,
     unbelieving, unpretending, unreserved, and the like; or inasmuch as
     they  are  so  frequently  and familiarly used that they are hardly
     felt to be of negative origin; as, uncertain, uneven, and the like.
     3.  Those  which  are  anomalous,  provincial,  or,  for some other
     reason,  not desirable to be used, and are so indicated; as, unpure
     for  impure,  unsatisfaction for dissatisfaction, unexpressible for
     inexpressible,  and  the  like.  II.  Un-  is  prefixed to nouns to
     express  the  absence  of,  or the contrary of, that which the noun
     signifies;  as,  unbelief,  unfaith, unhealth, unrest, untruth, and
     the like. NOTE: &hand; C ompounds o f t his last class are given in
     full in their proper order in the Vocabulary.

     There  is a spirit in man; and the inspiration of the Almighty them
     understanding. Job xxxii. 8.

     The  power  of  perception is that which we call the understanding.
     Perception, which we make the act of the understanding, is of three
     sorts: 1. The perception of ideas in our mind; 2. The perception of
     the  signification of signs; 3. The perception of the connection or
     repugnancy, agreement or disagreement, that there is between any of
     our  ideas.  All  these  are  attributed  to  the understanding, or
     perceptive  power, though it be the two latter only that use allows
     us to say we understand. Locke.

     In  its  wider  acceptation,  understanding  is the entire power of
     perceiving  an  conceiving, exclusive of the sensibility: the power
     of  dealing  with the impressions of sense, and composing them into
     wholes,  according to a law of unity; and in its most comprehensive
     meaning it includes even simple apprehension. Coleridge.

   4. Specifically, the discursive faculty; the faculty of knowing by the
   medium or use of general conceptions or relations. In this sense it is
   contrasted with, and distinguished from, the reason.

     I use the term understanding, not for the noetic faculty, intellect
     proper, or place of principles, but for the dianoetic or discursive
     faculty  in  its widest signification, for the faculty of relations
     or  comparisons; and thus in the meaning in which "verstand" is now
     employed by the Germans. Sir W. Hamilton.

   Syn. -- Sense; intelligence; perception. See Sense.

   Un"du*la*to*ry (?; 277), a. [Cf. F. ondulatoire.] Moving in the manner
   of  undulations,  or  waves;  resembling  the  motion  of waves, which
   successively  rise  or  swell  rise or swell and fall; pertaining to a
   propagated  alternating  motion,  similar to that of waves. Undulatory
   theory,  OR  Wave  theory (of light) (Opt.), that theory which regards
   its  various  phenomena  as  due to undulations in an ethereal medium,
   propagated  from the radiant with immense, but measurable, velocities,
   and  producing  different impressions on the retina according to their
   amplitude  and frequency, the sensation of brightness depending on the
   former,  that  of color on the latter. The undulations are supposed to
   take  place,  not in the direction of propagation, as in the air waves
   constituting  sound,  but  transversely,  and the various phenomena of
   refraction,  polarization, interference, etc., are attributable to the
   different  affections  of these undulations in different circumstances
   of  propagation.  It is computed that the frequency of the undulations
   corresponding  to  the  several colors of the spectrum ranges from 458
   millions  of  millions  per  second  for  the  extreme red ray, to 727
   millions of millions for the extreme violet, and their lengths for the
   same  colors, from the thirty-eight thousandth to the sixty thousandth
   part  of an inch. The theory of ethereal undulations is applicable not
   only  to  the  phenomena of light, but also to those of heat. <-- this
   theory  as  stated  is essentially accepted, but elaborated by quantum
   theory. Mention of Maxwell's equations would be appropriate. -->

   quantity  of  heat  adopted  as a unit of measure; a thermal unit (see
   under  Thermal).  Water  is the substance generally employed, the unit
   being  one  gram or one pound, and the temperature interval one degree
   of  the  Centigrade or Fahrenheit scale. When referred to the gram, it
   is  called the gram degree. The British unit of heat, or thermal unit,
   used by engineers in England and in the United States, is the quantity
   of  heat  necessary  to  raise one pound of pure water at and near its
   temperature  of  greatest  density (39.1 Fahr.) through one degree of

   of  the same kind, in assigning to them numerical values, as 1 foot, 1
   yard,  1  mile,  1 square foot, 1 square yard, 1 cubic foot, 1 peck, 1
   bushel, 1 gallon, 1 cent, 1 ounce, 1 pound, 1 hour, and the like; more
   specifically,  the  fundamental unit adopted in any system of weights,
   measures,  or money, by which its several denominations are regulated,
   and  which  is itself defined by comparison with some known magnitude,
   either  natural or empirical, as, in the United States, the dollar for
   money,  the  pound  avoirdupois  for  weight, the yard for length, the
   gallon of 8.3389 pounds avoirdupois of water at 39.8 Fahr. (about 231
   cubic  inches)  for  liquid measure, etc.; in Great Britain, the pound
   sterling,  the  pound  troy,  the  yard,  or  part  of the length of a
   second's pendulum at London, the gallon of 277.274 cubic inches, etc.;
   in  the metric system, the meter, the liter, the gram, etc. -- Unit of
   power.  (Mach.)  See  Horse  power. -- Unit of resistance. (Elec.) See
   Resistance,  n.,  4, and Ohm. -- Unit of work (Physics), the amount of
   work  done  by  a  unit  force  acting through a unit distance, or the
   amount  required to lift a unit weight through a unit distance against
   gravitation. See Erg, Foot Pound, Kilogrammeter. -- Unit stress (Mech.
   Physics),  stress  per  unit  of  area;  intensity  of  stress.  It is
   expressed in ounces, pounds, tons, etc., per square inch, square foot,
   or  square  yard,  etc.,  or  in  atmospheres, or inches of mercury or
   water, or the like.

     easement in the land of another, buys the servient estate.

     theology. A. Smith.

     NOTE: &hand; Fr om th e Roman words universitas, collegium, corpus,
     are  derived  the  terms  university,  college, and corporation, of
     modern  languages;  and  though  these words have obtained modified
     significations  in  modern times, so as to indifferently applicable
     to  the  same  things,  they all agree in retaining the fundamental
     signification  of  the terms, whatever may have been added to them.
     There is now no university, college, or corporation, which is not a
     juristical person in the sense above explained [see def. 2, above];
     wherever  these words are applied to any association of persons not
     stamped with this mark, it is an abuse of terms. Eng. Cyc.

     NOTE: &hand; Up on co nveys a  more distinct notion that on carries
     with  it  of  something  that  literally or metaphorically bears or
     supports. It is less employed than it used to be, on having for the
     most  part  taken its place. Some expressions formed with it belong
     only  to old style; as, upon pity they were taken away; that is, in
     consequence  of  pity:  upon  the rate of thirty thousand; that is,
     amounting  to  the rate: to die upon the hand; that is, by means of
     the hand: he had a garment upon; that is, upon himself: the time is
     coming  fast  upon; that is, upon the present time. By the omission
     of its object, upon acquires an adverbial sense, as in the last two
     examples.

     (katabolism)  of  proteid matter in the body, and is excreted daily
     to  the  amount  of  about  500  grains by a man of average weight.
     Chemically  it  is carbamide, CO(NH2)2, and when heated with strong
     acids  or alkalies is decomposed into carbonic acid and ammonia. It
     unites  with acids to form salts, as nitrate of urea, and it can be

     isomeric.

   Urea  ferment,  a  soluble  ferment formed by certain bacteria, which,
   however,  yield  the  ferment  from the body of their cells only after
   they  have been killed by alcohol. It causes urea to take up water and
   decompose  into  carbonic  acid  and  ammonia. Many different bacteria
   possess  this  property,  especially Bacterium ure\'91 and Micrococcus
   ure\'91,  which  are  found  abundantly  in urines undergoing alkaline

                                     Uric

   U"ric  (?),  a.  [Gr.  urique.  See  Urine.]  (Physiol.  Chem.)  Of or
   pertaining  to urine; obtained from urine; as, uric acid. Uric acid, a
   crystalline  body,  present  in small quantity in the urine of man and
   most  mammals.  Combined  in  the  form of urate of ammonia, it is the
   chief  constituent  of  the  urine  of birds and reptiles, forming the
   white  part.  Traces of it are also found in the various organs of the
   body.  It is likewise a common constituent, either as the free acid or
   as  a  urate,  of  urinary or renal calculi and of the so-called gouty
   concretions.  From  acid urines, uric acid is frequently deposited, on
   standing  in  a  cool place, in the form of a reddish yellow sediment,
   nearly  always  crystalline.  Chemically,  it  is  composed of carbon,
   hydrogen,  nitrogen, and oxygen, C5H4N4O3, and by decomposition yields
   urea,  among  other  products. It can be made synthetically by heating
   together  urea and glycocoll. It was formerly called also lithic acid,
   in allusion to its occurrence in stone, or calculus.

                                     Urim

   U"rim  (?),  n.  [Heb. , pl. of , fire light.] A part or decoration of
   the  breastplate  of  the high priest among the ancient Jews, by which
   Jehovah  revealed  his  will on certain occasions. Its nature has been
   the subject of conflicting conjectures.

     Thou  shall  put  in  the  breastplate of judgment the Urim and the
     Thummim. Ex. xxviii. 30.

     And  when  Saul  inquired  of  the Lord, the Lord answered him not,
     neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets. 1 Sam. xxviii. 6.

     NOTE: &hand; Pr ofessor Pl umptre su pposes the Urim to have been a
     clear and colorless stone set in the breastplate of the high priest
     as  a  symbol  of  light,  answering  to  the  mystic scarab in the
     pectoral  plate  of  the  ancient  Egyptian  priests,  and that the
     Thummim  was  an  image  corresponding to that worn by the priestly
     judges  of  Egypt  as  a  symbol  of truth and purity of motive. By
     gazing  steadfastly  on  these,  he  may  have  been  thrown into a
     mysterious,  half  ecstatic  state,  akin to hypnotism, in which he
     lost   all   personal   consciousness,  and  received  a  spiritual
     illumination and insight.

     aqueous  solution  of  urea, salt (sodium chloride), and uric acid,
     together  with some hippuric acid and peculiar pigments. It usually
     has  an  acid reaction, owing to the presence of acid phosphates of

                                    Usable

   Us"a*ble (?), a. Capable of being used.

                                     Usage

   Us"age (?), n. [F. usage, LL. usaticum. See Use.]

   1.  The  act  of  using; mode of using or treating; treatment; conduct
   with  respect  to a person or a thing; as, good usage; ill usage; hard
   usage.

     My  brother  Is prisoner to the bishop here, at whose hands He hath
     good usage and great liberty. Shak.

   2. Manners; conduct; behavior. [Obs.]

     A  gentle  nymph was found, Hight Astery, excelling all the crew In
     courteous usage. Spenser.

   3.  Long-continued  practice;  customary  mode  of  procedure; custom;
   habitual use; method. Chaucer.

     It has now been, during many years, the grave and decorous usage of
     Parliaments  to  hear,  in  respectful  silence,  all  expressions,
     acceptable  or  unacceptable,  which  are  uttered from the throne.
     Macaulay.

   4. Customary use or employment, as of a word or phrase in a particular
   sense or signification.

   5. Experience. [Obs.]

     In eld [old age] is both wisdom and usage. Chaucer.

   Syn.  --  Custom;  use;  habit. -- Usage, Custom. These words, as here
   compared,  agree  in  expressing  the idea of habitual practice; but a
   custom  is not necessarily a usage. A custom may belong to many, or to
   a  single  individual. A usage properly belongs to the great body of a
   people.  Hence,  we  speak  of  usage,  not  of  custom, as the law of
   language.  Again,  a  custom  is  merely  that  which  has  been often
   repeated, so as to have become, in a good degree, established. A usage
   must be both often repeated and of long standing. Hence, we speak of a
   "hew  custom,"  but  not of a "new usage." Thus, also, the "customs of
   society"  is  not  so strong an expression as the "usages of society."
   "Custom,  a  greater  power  than  nature,  seldom  fails to make them
   worship."  Locke.  "Of things once received and confirmed by use, long
   usage is a law sufficient." Hooker. In law, the words usage and custom
   are  often  used  interchangeably,  but  the  word  custom  also has a
   technical and restricted sense. See Custom, n., 3.

   usen, F. user to use, use up, wear out, LL. usare to use, from L. uti,
   p.  p.  usus,  to  use,  OL.  oeti,  oesus;  of  uncertain origin. Cf.

   Use, Employ. We use a thing, or make use of it, when we derive from it
   some enjoyment or service. We employ it when we turn that service into
   a  particular channel. We use words to express our general meaning; we
   employ  certain  technical  terms  in reference to a given subject. To
   make use of, implies passivity in the thing; as, to make use of a pen;
   and  hence  there is often a material difference between the two words
   when applied to persons. To speak of "making use of another" generally
   implies  a  degrading  idea,  as  if  we had used him as a tool; while
   employ  has  no  such  sense.  A  confidential  friend  is employed to
   negotiate; an inferior agent is made use of on an intrigue.

     They  use  to  place  him  that  shall be their captain on a stone.
     Spenser.

     Fears use to be represented in an imaginary. Bacon.

     Not  to  sit  idle  with  so  great  a  gift  Useless,  and  thence
     ridiculous. Milton.

   Syn. -- Fruitless; ineffectual. -- Useless, Fruitless, Ineffectual. We
   speak  of an attempt, effort, etc., as being useless when there are in
   it  inherent  difficulties  which  forbid  the  hope  of  success,  as
   fruitless when it fails, not from any such difficulties, but from some
   unexpected  hindrance  arising  to  frustrate  it;  as, the design was
   rendered  fruitless  by the death of its projector. Ineffectual nearly
   resembles  fruitless,  but  implies  a  failure  of  a  less  hopeless
   character; as, after several ineffectual efforts, I at last succeeded.

     Useless  are  all  words Till you have writ "performance" with your
     swords. The other is for waiving. Beau. & Fl.

   3.  (Law) Interest in excess of a legal rate charged to a borrower for
   the use of money.

     NOTE: &hand; Th e pr actice of requiring in repayment of money lent
     anything  more  than  the amount lent, was formerly thought to be a
     great  moral  wrong, and the greater, the more was taken. Now it is
     not deemed more wrong to take pay for the use of money than for the
     use  of  a  house,  or  a  horse,  or  any  other property. But the
     lingering  influence  of the former opinion, together with the fact
     that  the nature of money makes it easier for the lender to oppress
     the borrower, has caused nearly all Christian nations to fix by law
     the  rate  of  compensation  for  the  use of money. Of late years,
     however,  the  opinion that money should be borrowed and repaid, or
     bought  and  sold, upon whatever terms the parties should agree to,
     like any other property, has gained ground everywhere.

   2.  (Polit.  Econ.)  Adaptation  to  satisfy  the  desires  or  wants;
   intrinsic value. See Note under Value, 2.

     Value in use is utility, and nothing else, and in political economy
     should be called by that name and no other. F. A. Walker.

   3. Happiness; the greatest good, or happiness, of the greatest number,
   --  the  foundation of utilitarianism. J. S. Mill. Syn. -- Usefulness;
   advantageous; benefit; profit; avail; service. -- Utility, Usefulness.
   Usefulness  has an Anglo-Saxon prefix, utility is Latin; and hence the
   former  is used chiefly of things in the concrete, while the latter is
   employed  more  in a general and abstract sense. Thus, we speak of the
   utility  of an invention, and the usefulness of the thing invented; of
   the utility of an institution, and the usefulness of an individual. So
   beauty  and  utility  (not  usefulness)  are  brought into comparison.
   Still, the words are often used interchangeably.
