A third writer recommends transposition of the
initial consonants, and prescribes reading-exercises
in which these consonants have actually been sub-
joined to the words preceding. The following exer-
cise is typical:


The distant Trojans never injur'd me.1
Thed istantTr ojansn ever injur'dm e.

In youth and beauty wisdom is but rare.
Iny outh andb eautyw isdom isb utr are.

For too much rest itself becomes a pain.
Fort oom uchr est itselfb ecomes ap ain.

Praise undeserv'd is scandal in disguise.
Praise undeserv'd issc andal ind isguise.

Worth makes the man, and want of it the fellow.
Worthm akesth em an, andw ant of itth ef ellow.

Bare the mean heart that lurks behind a star.
Bareth em eanh eartth atl urksb ehind ast ar.

Who dares think one thing, and another tell,
My heart detests him as the gates of hell.
Whod aresth ink oneth ing, and anothert ell,
Myh eartd etestsh im asth eg ates ofh ell.
