Abstract: Presented paper is considered as the third and final part of a series dedicated to understanding of language in selected works of Francis Bacon and Johannes Amos Comenius. The first section is of a comparative nature followed by the second section on Swift's idea of an academy for the reform/correction of English language reflecting at least indirect influence of Bacon's idea of learned society. Final section is dedicated to a new observation about similarity of late Comenius' ideas of Latin college with the ones of Dr Thomas Sheridan, the 18th century Irish schoolmaster, philosopher and linguist from Dublin, entitled "the second Solomon" by Jonathan Swift.
