This question already has an answer here:
I am a ESL learner, has been recently started doing some practice test of IESLTS. Here is a question I am confused about within a reading passage.
There had, of course, been dictionaries in the past, the first of these being a little book of some 120 pages, compiled by a certain Robert Cawdray, published in 1604 under the title A Table Alphabeticall 'of hard usuall English wordes'.
I am struggling with the words "certain" that author used here, I will be really grateful if someone help me figure out the question, or any of the ideas would give a lot of help.
