Reliable \Re*li"a*ble\ (r?-l?"?-b'l), a.

Note: Some authors take exception to this word, maintaining
that it is unnecessary, and irregular in formation. It
is, however, sanctioned by the practice of many careful

trustworthy, which is by preference applied to persons,
as reliable is to things, such as an account,
statement, or the like. The objection that adjectives
derived from neuter verbs do not admit of a passive
sense is met by the citation of laughable, worthy of
being laughed at, from the neuter verb to laugh;
available, fit or able to be availed of, from the
neuter verb to avail; dispensable, capable of being
dispensed with, from the neuter verb to dispense. Other
examples might be added.
