  Wonder \Won"der\, n. [OE. wonder, wunder, AS. wundor; akin to D.
     wonder, OS. wundar, OHG. wuntar, G. wunder, Icel. undr, Sw. &
     Dan. under, and perhaps to Gr. ? to gaze at.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. That emotion which is excited by novelty, or the
        presentation to the sight or mind of something new,
        unusual, strange, great, extraordinary, or not well
        understood; surprise; astonishment; admiration; amazement.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              They were filled with wonder and amazement at that

                                                    10.

              Wonder is the effect of novelty upon ignorance.

        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Wonder expresses less than astonishment, and much less
           than amazement. It differs from admiration, as now
           used, in not being necessarily accompanied with love,
           esteem, or approbation.
           [1913 Webster]
