الصفحة 49 - Nor is it less pleased with its first successful endeavours to walk, or rather to run (which precedes walking), although entirely ignorant of the importance of the attainment to its future life, and even without applying it to any present purpose. A child is delighted with speaking, without having anything to say ; and with walking, without knowing where to go. And prior to both these, I am disposed to believe that the -waking hours of infancy are agreeably taken up with the exercise of vision, or...
الصفحة 49 - The young of all animals appear to me to receive pleasure simply from the exercise of their limbs and bodily faculties, without reference to any end to be attained, or any use to be answered by the exertion. A child without knowing anything of the use of language, is in a high degree delighted with being able to speak.
الصفحة 2 - CLERK'S OFFIcE. BE it remembered, that on the eleventh day of November, AD 1830, in the fiftyfifth year of the Independence of the United States of America, Gray & Bowen, of the said district, have deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof they claim...
الصفحة 52 - Speech being merely a collection of arbitrary sounds, used as signs of thought or feeling, it is indispensable to intelligible communication, that there be a general agreement about the signification assigned to given sounds; as otherwise there could be no common language. It is equally important that there be a common consent and established custom, to regulate and fix the sounds used in speech, that these may have a definite character and signification, and become the* current expression of thought....

It is unnecessary here to enlarge on the intellectual injuries arising from the want of early discipline in this department of education ; or to speak of the habits of inattention and inaccuracy, which are thus cherished, and by which the English language is degraded from its native force and dignity of utterance, to a low and slovenly negligence of style, by which it is rendered unfit for the best offices of speech.
الصفحة 43 - COMMON ERRORS EXEMPLIFIED IN PHRASES. The importance of exemplifying current errors in phrases or sentences, arises from the fact, with which teachers are familiar, that a word placed separately, on a column or a list, becomes necessarily so conspicuous as to be more attentively observed and correctly pronounced ; while the same word, merged in the body of a phrase, is apt to escape the attention, and to be pronounced incorrectly. I saw (sawr)* a man who told me all things that ever I did.
الصفحة 62 - The, before a word beginning with a vowel, snould be pronounced with the same sound of e as in Relate : before a word beginning with a consonant, it should have the obscure sound, as in the second syllable of eternal ; but never the sound of broad a. By, in colloquial or very familiar language, may be pronounced short, with a sound of y corresponding to that of i in the word it, and not as sometimes heard, like the e of me.
الصفحة 65 - Third, an energetic, deliberate, and exact execution, in the functions of the tongue and the lips. It is from the combination of all these qualities of articulation, that the ear receives the true and perfect sound of every letter and syllable, and the mind, the exact form and meaning of every word; while a failure in any of these points is attended by a weak and inefficient voice, or a defective and indiscinct utterance.
الصفحة 55 - A in unaccented initial syllables, is mispronounced in the same way ; thus abate for abate: — so is a final, as in Cuba for Cuba: and, generally, a unaccented in the following and similar syllables: honorary, obduracy, peaceably, for honorary, obduracy, peaceably. RULE. The letter a, constituting an unaccented syllable, or occurring at the end of an unaccented syllable, has the sound of a in that, as in the words, Atone, lunacy, habitual, algebra, &,c., which must not be pronounced ^/tone, lunacy,...
