Excerpt from The English Language: Its Grammar, History, and Literature; With Chapters on Composition, Versification, Paraphrasing, and Punctuation It is hoped that the book will also be useful in Ladies' Colleges and middle-class Schools, to candidates for Local Examinations, and to other classes of students. Only the most salient features Of the language have been described, and minor details have been left for the teacher to fill in. The utmost clearness and simplicity have been the aim of the writer, and he has been obliged to sacrifice many interesting details to this aim. The study of English Grammar is becoming every day more and more historical - and necessarily so. There are scores of inflections, usages, constructions, idioms, which cannot be truly or adequately explained without a. Reference to the past states of the language - to the time when it was a synthetic or inflected language, like German or Latin.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Excerpt from The English Language: Its Grammar, History and Literature It is hoped that the book will prove useful in high schools, academies, and seminaries, as well as to candidates for teachers' examinations and civil service examinations. The various topics have been prepared upon the assumption that the stu dent has already studied a part of the work in an elementary form. The most salient features of the language have been de scribed, and minor details have been left for the teacher to fill in as needed. The utmost clearness and simplicity have been the aim of the writer, and he has been obliged to sacrifice many interesting details to this aim. The study of English grammar is necessarily becoming more and more historical.
