Today's word is belittle. It was first used by Tomas Jaffson. The third president of United States. Many years ago, a french naturaist the CF wrote some books about natural history . The books were a great success eventhough some critics didn't like them. some critics said CF is more of a poet than a scientist. Tomas Jaffson did not like what the C* had said about the natural wonders of the new word. It seemd to Jaffson that the C* had gone out of theit way to the natural speaker in Amercian as if they were unimportant.

This troubled Tomas Jaffson. He too is a naturalist as well as a farmer inventor,historian,writer and politician. He had seen the natural wonders of Europe. To him , they were no more important than those of the new word.

In 1788, Tomas Jaffson worte about his homestate for junior. While writing ,he thought of the natural beauty and then of the words CF*. At that moment, Jaffson creat a new word belittle. He said the CF* believes belittle the productions on the side of the Atlantic.

******, the American word expert liked this word. He putted it in his English language dictionary in 1806. Belittle ,to make samll,unimportant. Americans had already accepted the Jaffson's word and started to use it.

In 1797, the independent crimicle newspaper used the word to described a politician the paper supported. He is an hornorable man ,the paper wrote.so let the opposition tried to be little him as much as they pleased.

In 1844, the republican seneter of Virginia worte this about the opposition party. The w* may attempt to belittle our canditates, this is a favourite game of theirs.

IN 1872, a famous American word expert desided that the time to kill this word,he said be little has no chance of the coming English,and that's more critical rights of America,like those of Britin feel no need of it, the sooner it is regarden the better, this expert failed to kill the word, today be little is used not only in the United States and England but in other countries called English language is spoken, it seems that efforts to belittle of the word didn't stop people from using it
