SPEECH-EXERCISES

One of the simplest speech-exercises consists in
counting. We give below, an exercise that forms a
conspicuous feature in the "curriculum" of an Eng-
lish stammering-school:

"THE /LONG COUNT'

"Two hundred and twenty-two million, two hundred and
twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty.

"Two hundred and twenty-two million, two hundred and
twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-one.

" Two hundred and twenty-two million, two hundred and
twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-two.

twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-three.

"Two hundred and twenty-two million, two hundred and
twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-four.

"Two hundred and twenty-two million, two hundred and
twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-five.

" Two hundred and twenty-two million, two hundred and

hundred and thirty." After " thirty-nine " is reached, the exercise
proceeds: "Four hundred and forty-four million," etc.
