This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

The number of English nionosjllables is about 3200, and 
as many of these are not primitives, but have a prefix, a 
sufEs, or both, it is evident that the affixes must be concerned 
in the formation of the greatest part of the vast vocabulary 
of English words; and that an accurate knowledge of these 
is to be acquired through a distinct appreciation of the modes 
used to vary them in form and meaning, according to the exi- 
gencies of thought and speech. 

Some languages, as Greek and Welsh, have their etymolo- 
gio material within themselves, and moat of their words may 
he analysed independently of other languages; but if this is 
attempted with a composite language like English, the result- 
ing knowledge will be imperfect, as in supposing aque to 
mean water in the word aqueduct, where e js th*" t,enitn o 
case sign of iQvi water, aqvae of water, the a h ii ing been 
lost in aqueduct. (See § 7.) If therefoio we iguoie Latiu 
forms in words derived from Latin, our aiialjsis will be unie- 
liable, and the force of the derivatives may be obscured rather 
than elucidated. 

Unless we know, not only the affixes as they appear in 
English, but their etymology also, it will not be apparent that 
the c of the suffix -cy may be due to an i, a (, an t, or an 
original c (cay;) and we may mistake one foira for another, 
as -y for -ly after -1, as in oil-y, and idly, or un- in un-loose 
for the negative un- in un-fix. For such lea^ons it was de- 
termined that this volume should be strictly etymologic, and 
that collateral forma should be cited where they might be 
useful, as in determining whether the supinal to m 'to lue' 
is the ordinary preposition to. Languages not akin to Engli&h

whilst in tbe London edition of 1716 the line stands— 

In like manner, a spurious edition of Young has the word 
'sprightly' towards the end of Night 1, which, in "A New 
Edition Corrected by the Author." 1776, is thus given in a 
more etymologic form — 

Except in the Introduction, illustrative extracts from au- 
thors as late as the year 1800, are printed in old style type, 
to distinguish earlier writers from those of the present cen- 
tury, even when a modem edition like Wright's Chaucer, is 
quoted. A few estracte have been taken from the dictionary 
of Richardson, an author who is not always consistent, since 
he occasionally gives tlie same passage differently, as in quo- 
ting Beattie under dedentition and feeie, — "for falling 

teeth." "for falling the teeth, &c." Under aloes and

As the etymology of a woid is independent of tte modes 
of spelling it, it tas not been deemed pioper to follow the 
practice of those who give urthographii, rules m treatises on 
the subject What la commonly called etymologic spelling 
would require the rejection of English w, th, gh, y, i-h, and 
in many cahes of th , it would require •itahle as a noun to be 
spelt stabul, and as an adjective stabil, the letter I to 
have i, place in writing ao, to he rejected from tould, and 
doubled in idolatty and traiiqaU , n. to be placed m •mill aa it 
is in 7dhh; the e to be retained in line hut not vapine; and 
g removed from mvereign to be placed in noble. 

An etymologic orthography would reqnire an indication of 
long and short o in words from the Greek. Anliphoni/ would 
have to be given up for antvphony, because the former would 
mean ' an avenging of (jpovif) murder,' and the latter ' a reply- 
ing,' from ipiay^ voice. By shortening the i of liturgy we 
virtually refer it to htopj-ioi, ' to speak with malice,' instead 
of ^eirapj-^oi, ' to perform public service;' and Calliope {Kak- 
iX6r.yi) 'she who has a fine voice,' with o lengthened would 
mean 'she who has a fine eye.' 

As etymologic orthography is assumed to be the spelling 
of words as their cognates or cognate parts are spelt in other 
languages, examples would appear in bwgcllyedr for huchler, 
cllyedheamhor for claymore,' o^ax (Russian ll,apii) for tsar,

16 The parsing of a word in its syntactic relations is very 
different from its analysis with a view to ascertain its origin, 
the value of its coniponeat parts, and the history of ite 
meanings. Thus better is the grammatic but not the 
etymologic comparative of good. Whiter is both a gram- 
matio and an etymologic comparative. A false orthography 
(like that which places 'gh' in the derivative 'might' which 
is not represented in its primitive 'may,') and a word formed 
on false principles (like 'spaamodic' instead of spastic^ ate 
offenses a^nst etymology, but not against grammar. 

17 A book of this kind has been a desideratum in the 
Anal^iis of Words, and as an Introchclton to English Lexi- 
cograpki/, definitional and etymologic — the meagre outlines 
given in dictionaries and graanmara presenting nothing ap- 
proaching to completeness.* 

18 We are of the opinion that there are not 300 roots in 
any language, and if this view is correct, a knowledge of the 
affixes which give form and meaning to 100,000 English 
words must be of extreme value, greatly diminishing the

time devoted to the dictionary, and giving the inquirer the 
means of conaulting it understandingly. 

19 Most of the Jiew! loords which figure in the successive 
editions of English Dictionaries, are old forms with the com- 
moner affixes, aa un-, in-, -Ij, and -ness, in un-forgetable

semieiroular-Iy Btdwer 1841 ; branched-neaa Jioyle 1675. 
Webster is said to have added 12,000 words to Todd's 
Johnson ; Ogilvie added perhaps 20,000 more in his Im- 
perial Dictionary, Glasgow 1850, and Supplement of 1855 ; 
and Worcester* claims about 104,000 for his quarto of 1860. 
Set, a portion of the memoranda of words met with in our 
own reading furnishes under the prefix; un-, the following 
one hundred omitted words from as many authorities, each

the end of the Suffliaa. 

24 rSs eollal^-alform. of tte preflyee are often given to show tliat they 
are widely diffused; bnt whilst it is not naeessary to lesru, for esampla 
that un- is aqually un- in HindoosUneo, and aa- in Welsh and Irish, it 
ia of importanoe to know that langnagea so disaimiiar may have featuroa 
in oommon, derived from a oommon anoestry in remote antiqnity, 

35 ConMniionoi Latin is often pcononnoed in a mode which leaaens its 
ntility for etymologio purposes, because etymology, besides showing the 
msmJicmcf between words, ezhibits the degree of variation to which they 
have been aubjeoted. Henoe if Latin Cay in Ioer or (keen, bold,) 
ia pronounced like « in a "Latin" reoitation, it should, in an etymoiogic 
recitWion, have its Latm power, or its darin-ative e^er wUl be an older

baggage {or iojase,) bnt identic with the Polish bagid. 

26 As tie anelent ia beginning to replaoe the empiric pronunaiation of 
Latin in our colleges, it is the more neceaaary that the pupils should be 
Oflqnaintad with it, whether they use it or not. Although na a Zaiia

of the oognato word in other langnagea -.—Ihin must remain thm, althoueh 
it is d U n n in ftorman aud tek&is in Latin. 

27 As the Greek affiles are given in Roman typography, and as they 
are not numerous, a knowledge of the Groek lettera is not essential; 
neverthelaaa, as an etymologic dictionary oannot bo used without them^ 
and as they are much used in matbematios and astronomy, the Greek 
alphabet should be aoqnired. This can be done in two or three Jeaaona 
or by using the alphabet as a key to Isarn the Greek words as they occur' 

23 The alphabetio arrangement made it neoeaaarj to indicate affinities 
by refercncea from one head to another, and when this is to later portions 
of the book, the pupil need not be requu-ad to follow the reference ■ nor 
need he search for the valne of -io, should heflnd a word like ohimer-lc-al 
nnder the head -*l, until he passes through the book the second time.

twenty letters— A BCDEF&HILMN0PQU8T

namely, BDFHNPQTX. 

C and G- (named my and gay hy the Eomans) were always 
pure, as in car, celt, sceptic, scheme, get, give-, and never cor- 
rupt, as in cent, gem: 

I when a vowel, aa in field; when a consonant, aa iu 
collier, or y in year, but the latter is diatiagnisted in most 
modern books by having the base of the character turned to 
the left 'J.'

preceding vowel, as in its derivatives in the Portuguese bom, 
(good) or French now, (name.)

33 Latin, like Italian, has oonsonanta doubled, mm in 
CONNECTO being pronounced as in one ■aame, U in ALLloo- 
■rIX as in aU-loving, mm in immoetalIs as in some man, 
di"am-major, and other English compounds. 

34 The vowels have eaoh a long (") a atort (-) or a eoin- 
mon (" long or short) quantity, the last being often left un- 
marked. A long vowel (or syllable) is twice the length of a 
short one, and has the same quality, as in English o, which 
is long in nien, oh, and short in oath, ohey, without falling 
into the vowel of moth, object. A syllable is commonly 
" long by position" when a vowel is followed by two con- 
sonants. We often mark such a vowel with a dot, A vowel 
before another is commonlj short. Diphthongs are long. 

35 The power and name of the Latin vowels are ds in 
the following English words — 

A ia hng in arm, ehorf in Srt, never as in at 

E " they, " Sight, " ebb 

I " field, " deceit, " it

first letter (as A m AE or M, .ind in OK or (E) has its 

ordinary Latin power, whilst the 'leoond must have such a 

modification as to -Jlow the combtnition to form a single

43 Conjugatwn is the inflexion of verba. Most Latin 
verbs end in -o (Greek -m) in the first person singular num- 
ber of the indicative mood present tense, as Xmo / love, of 
which the root is Am. The infinitive mood to love adds -Rl 
to the stem AMA, forming the infinitive iM5BE to Jove. The 
infinitive sign of the 1st conjugation is -5-, of the 2d -E-, of 
the 3d -E-, and of the 4th -!-. 

44 The Latin dictionaries ^ve tbe present tense, as iMO 
I love (often loosely defined by to love,) and with it, either 
the infinitive, or a numeral, 1, 2, 3, or 4, to indicate the con- 
jugation to which the verb belongs. To these are added the 
perfect tense, as amavi 1 have loved, and the verbial noun 
called the first supine, as aMATUM to love (in order to love.) 
Other inflexions must be looked for in the grammar, as the 
second supine Smatu to be loved; the participles, present 
Smans loving, future amXttoCs about to he loving; amatus 
loved; Xmandits to be loved; gerund (a kind of noun) 
XmXndum loving, iMiNDl of loving, as — ctjpIdCs amandi

case ME, and ego I cannot be used as in English, where / is 
considered a nominative case to the verb love. The English 
sentence contains the assertion I love (which may not be 
true,) from which the Latin is free.

can love," (German, ieh kann lieh-en; Danish, jeg kan

is a supine. In the following examples (commencing with 
an interrogative adverb,) "can blind lead blind," both forms 
of "blind" (bhnd-person) are in the singular number, and

§ 48 The posaeaaive oorreaponds with the Latin genitive, 
and the objective with the acoisative. Latin has also a da- 
tive case, as SKRMOnT (to a speech;) and an ablative, aa ser- 
mSnS (with a speech,) the nominative being slaMO a speech, 
and the accusative sermone"", 

\ie case, as dSuincs a lord^ dQuitib 

49 The cases which differ from the nominative are called 
oblique oaaes. The English sermon may be called an oblique 
case of SERMO, because it is not derived from the Latin nomi- 
native, nor from any single oblique case. 

50 Aa the Latin cases vary considerably, they are divided 
into five declensions, distinguished by the termination of the 
genitive case siagular number, as follows — 

51 In English derivations from Latin nouns (adjectives, 
participles,) it is often necessirj to know the 'ciude torm," 
which is generally present in an oblique cate, and the dic- 

tionary j

52 As most English nouns borrowed from Latin happened 
to be of the second and third declensions, the i of their geni- 

Hcssdb, Google 


tive case has become the connecting vowel with. nouDs of the 
first declension, as in penuiform (not peanaefoi-jn) from 
PlNM-A, -AH (a feather.) Primigenous (first born) is formed 
from the adjective PRiM-tts, -I (first,) and primogeniture from 
the adverb PhImo (at first.) 

53 0, a common connective in words of Greek origin, 
may be due to the crude form, or to the noun and adjective 
termination -oq of the nominative case, with t; dropped, as ia 
philo-eophy, auto-bio-graphy. of a genitive case is present 
ia phraseo-Iogy {fpda-t';, -swq,') cynos-ure (xOiov dog, gen. 
iov-dc,) aer-o-naut, aer-o-Iite, from dijp (air) genitive dipoq; 
but aer-ial is from the Latin form aer, gen, AiSnIs. 

54 Phos-phorus preserves the g of the nominative poi; 
(light,) whilst the genitive tpwTiq is used in photo-phorus, 

55 Other connecting vowels appear in strata-gem, penta- 
gon, arehi-tect, lexi-con, patri-arch, pan-e-gyric from i^Sv (all) 
ayupd (assembly;) where Trai^ is the neuter of iraj, as in paa- 
i-graphy, genitive xd^roq, as in panto-graphy. 

56 The t in ego-t-ism and n in tobacco-n-ist are connect- 
ives, and ff has slipped iuto poly-g-archy, for poly-arehy (rule 
of many) by the induction or influence of olig-archy, the rule 
of (dXiyoq) few, 

57 A connecting element may be no part either of the 
base-word or the affix, as ( in ego-t-ism and i in penn-i-form- 
— it may belong to the base-word, as in gan-d-er (B^" -m,) 
asthma-t-ic; to the affix, as a of -ary in milit-ary, because 
(§ 51) MiL-ES, gen. mIlit-is has no «;— or to both base-word 
and affix, as in mating formul-a-ry from formula and -ary; 
but as then of formui-a was originally short, and that of -ary 
long, the sufiix has the better claim to the a of formulary 
subterr-anean, and others. 

58 The connecting element is often added to the suffix, as 
a in -ATe, -ATi5a, where the etymology, and forms like 
SBLEC-TiJS show that the participial portion is not -at, but 

Hcssdb, Google 


-T, whieii may be preceded by any of the Latin vowels, the a 
of -AT being due to the fii-st conjugation (§ 46) as in adv5- 
caeS (to advocate,) advoc-atSs. Nevertheless, as -atus 
occurs in words underived from verbs, aa hSm-Atub (hamate, 
hooked,) the heading -Aie is given. Similarly, -ax, -ex, &c. 
might have been placed under -x j -ant, -ent, under -ht, &c. 
59 In Greek there are three declensions and five cases, 
which bear some resemblauoe to the Latin cases. In the 
Latin lag aud Greek ydXa (milk,) little resemblance is appa- 
rent until we take an oblique case, as the genitive ydAAKToq, 
LACTlS. Compare—

60 Mfiectimial elements are such as are used in grammatic 
inflexions, ag the participial t in tons. Mutational elements 
are such as interchange, as d, t, in spelledf, speli. Deden- 
^anal elements occur in declensions, as n in sermon, which is 
the crude form (g 51) of seeMO a speech. Formative ele- 
ments aroused in mikmgfoims of words, as ^ in forming the 
noun ras-p from the verb raze. 

61 The characteristic part of a derivative word is often to 
be looked for in the inflexions of the verb. Thus the Greek 
^pd-Zio, in the Doric dialect 0pdSS/o (I speak) gives phrase, 
and the perfect tense ni^paKa (I have spoken) is akin to the 
Latin PRECOB (to pray,) German fragen (to ask,) and Eng- 
lish prec-atory, pray. 

62 Latin inflexions are much used in the law, as man da- 
mns we command; capias you may take; affidavit he 
(she) baa made faith to; sci-licSt to wit, that is to say, 
(SCI-RE to know, LIOEI it ia lawful;) vide-licSt to wit, 
namely, (viDEaE to see, — it is easy to see, — it may be seen;)

63 Gender. Many English forms depend upon the varia- 
tions in the originals indicative of gender. The name Maxi- 
muB {greatest, primarily an adjective,) indicates a male, of 
which the feminine would be Masi-ma, and the neuter maxi- 
mum. But there arc exceptions to such indications of gen- 
der, la Greek, canon is masculine, chaos and drama are 
neuter, and exodus is feminine; and in Latin, QVKRCtis (an 
oak) is feminine, and GENiJa yivo'; neuter.

64 The Islaudie adjectives of the three genders have the 
following forms — 






65 Affixes are additions to roots stems and words, serving 
to modify their meaning ind use. They are of two kinds, 
prefixes, those at the heginnmg, and swffi,xes, those at the end 
of the word-hases to which they are affixed. Several affixes 
occur in long words like m com pi e-hojt-s-ih-il4t-i/, which has 
three prefixes and five suffixes. 

Hcssdb, Google 

§ 66 A root is' a word or part of a word without affix, some- 
times having and sometimes wanting a distinctive meaning. 
A (in arm,) is the root of a-ir and a-sthnia; it has not the 
definite meaning of a noun or yerh, but signifies hhto in a 
general way, without being a part of speech. 

G7 Eat- is, and cd is not a word, but both are stents in eat- 
able or ed-jble, and derived from the root AD,— but roots and 
stems cannot be distinguished in all cases. Sia is the root of 
sta-nd, sta-tion, and its cognate sii is the stem of con-sti-t^ut-ion. 

68 Irk, the stem of vi-ork and irksome, is disguised in 
07^-an, lit-wy-y, cu-erg-y, su-rtz-ery; and work is disguised 
under wrigh-t. Beauty (from helle) is equally the stem of 
beaitti-ful and heaute-ous, for Etymology pertains to language 
and not to orthography. 

69 Etymology lakes oogDisanoe of the relation of proof, prove (proor,) 
and requires tie latter to have final c, whioh, with final i, j, and doubla 
P, 3, e, k, Bxe forbiadon by English apalling. The English luid Germans 
oall iouse (bana) by the earoe name, so that each has font elements and 
closes witb a consonant. SimilEirly orb-s, pea-aa, oloth-ea, beau-jt, have 
the same plural element, and the last never had an etymulogic letter ex^ 
but in old PrenohyertioalBoript, the final's' with the tail thrown forward 

resembled 'j;,' whioh printers used for it In dialects of old English, the 

was pronounced with th in thin, and spelt with the Anglosaxon letter y, for 
whioh. 'y' was used by printers who wanted the type or mistook the letter, 
HJid this typographic error leads 3ome to fancy that the waa formerly pro- 
nounced witb English y. 

70 It cannot always be determined whether derivative 
words are compound, or formed with aii affis. This doubt 
appears in overreach, undersecretary, magnificent. 
The following are compound — astro-logy, atmo-sphere, 
eeno-taph, demo-crat, hemo-rrhage, hjdr-aulic, hy- 
dro-gen, leth-argy, lit-urgy, mel-ody, olig-aroh, 
mon-arch, cham-o-mjle, strat-agem, kal-eido-scope. 

71 The force of affixes being variable and often evanescent, 
care must be taken to accept the definitions of them in a, 
general sense; and when their force is known, it need not be 

Hcssdb, Google 

1-eoalled in analysing a word, except where it eeems to 
strictly appiteablc. On account of their occasional indefini 
urn, some of the affixes are left undefined, and in some t 
the definition of the examples does not quite correspond 
that first given. 

73 The prefix un- ia a variation of in- (not,) yet un. 
nificant me&m not stffnificani, md insignificant means 
trifling; pertinent is to tkepwrpose, impertinent imo~ 
lent; and not famms yiojAA be an inaccurate definition of 
infamous. Compare disposition and indisposition, 
delicate and indelicate. 

73 Although the Latin prefix sue (sue-, sua-, &e.) means 
under, it also means /j-om beneath, in, at, towards, somewhat. 
Thus Stjfi-VEHO means, I carry up; sug-gSeo I put under, 
bring, annex, supply, si>^gest; cedo I go, suc-cedo I go 
under, submit, ascend, belong to, follow after, prosper, smc- 
veed. PR^-TlNBO I stretch forward,, place before, prefix, 
exhibit, pretend: 

74 IN-Duco I lead in, clothe, exhibit, deceive (take in,) 
overlay, annul, put on (as shoes,) induce. 

75 IN-FOEMO I form, show, instruct, inform. de-f6kmo I 
form, describe, design, beautify, disfigure. In means in or 
on, and aisTO I place, whence im-sisto I step towards, come, 
etop, pursue,, press upon, (used figuratively in the English) 

76 The primary sense of 'ascribe' is iumte to, but it means 
to attribute, which is composed of to and give. The original 
sense of attribute is evident in tribute and contribu- 
tion, whilst in retribution it has a more figurative exten- 

77 Composed means placed together, decomposed 
means e^arated in regard to a previous union, and although 
undecomposed is a negative of decomposed, it is not 
quite equivalent to composed. 

iDVEEsOs turned towards, fronting, adverse, hostile.

78 In the course of time the force of some words with an 
affis has hecome identic with that of their simple form, as 
sever dissever, loose unloose, sport for disport, 
encounter rencounter, ornament adornment, to 
adorn to ornament. 

79 The Latin mendX (a fault) has produeed mend (to 
repair) by the loss of the prefixes (ab-, ex-,) of a-mend and 
e-mend, implying removal of the fault. 

80 In add and aid the prefix ad- is all that is left of 
Sd-do and 1d-jBvo; eul! is the prefix con- of col-lect; 
trance is the Latin TRANS-lriJS (a going beyond,) reduced 
to its prefix; enter is the prefix iuTER, intbS. deprived of 
the verbial termination observed in inteXre (to go in;) 

81 Eenoounter is composed of re-in- contra. Hipped 
is the prefix and suffix hyp— od of hypochondriaaised, 
with a dozen silent letters; in-super-able is composed of 
three affixes, dis-a(d)v-ant-age-ous-ly of six, and supr-

82 The prefis re- implies hack or again, but it is used in 
re-mark without re-gard to the first speaker, or to the re- 
plying one; and something is re-ferred (borne back) to a 
person who re-ceives it for the first time. A nation is re- 
duced (led back) to subjection which had previously been 
free, and a man is re-duoed to poverty who had never been

tion might be required (independently of its use before an 
objective caae,) in the locutions ai-lude to; i/e-lude with; 
di?-pend from, upon; rfe-sceud _/m>i, vp<m, info; re-, im-pose 
upon; su6-mit to; re-, ap-ply to; sup-ply mlk; o£-jeot to; 
eo»-fer on, with. 

92 The sign of the infinitive mood being identic with the 
preposition to, this double use of the same a ocable causes to 
to lose its force as a preposition and to be transferred to the 
condition of a prefix, as in several of the locutions folbwmg 
— tZisposed-to work, indisposed to-work ^Kcllned to do it m 
clined-to it; — which induce the forms — (ver'ie to such a 
c;ourse; d/sin clined-to it, (fiVinelined to-do it

93 Attempts are sometimes made to secure the conjoint 
action of prefix and preposition, by forms like — liisinolined 
from, ayerse fmm, — the use of which embarrasses the lan- 
guage by assigning to partloles a greater force than the cor-

94 JVo wii/orm nde is adopted in admitting foreign words 
into a language. Some words become naturalised, whilst 
others similarly formed, and equally good, or bad, are avoided, 
or if proposed, do not come into use. Thus English has from

§ 99 Care must he taken to determine how muoh of a word 
constitutes the stem and affix. The prefix aubter- ia sub- 
ter-fuge does not occur iu a ub torr aa ean, where the 
prefix ia sub- and the stom teer of tbrrX the earth; nor 
does sub- occur in subulate, from SuextlS an awl, and 
this from suo I sew. 

100 Trans- is the prefix and form the stem of trans- 
form; whilst in exude and transude, the stem ia suda^ 
(to sweat,) and the prefix ec'-, tran'-, with the first « absorbed 
by the second. If trInsItus a passing over, were impro- 
perly divided, it would mean (slTua) situated over. 

101 As re- means bach, and retro- hachoards, a re-trac- 
tion or drawing back, might be converted into retr-action 
an acHng! backwards; and abs-tain to hold from, might be 
taken for ab-s tain to sfaniZ from. 

102 The English word angelio and Anglish angelic 
are far removed from each other, the latter being an-ge-lic 
a-lihe; and in Danish, unytte is in-ut-ilitj, as if from Latin 
CTiia I me; but the prefix ia u- not, and the stem is cog- 
nate with the German natz projii. The Danish vandrende 
is both a loanderer and a water-pipe, in the former sense from 
vandre to wander, and in the latter from vand luafer and 
rende a channel, 

103 The Latin pisc-It-Ce and Welsh pyag-otwr (fisher- 
man) are from the cognates Pisc-Is, p jsg (fish,) and seem to 
correspond in all their parts ; but at in the Latin is partici- 
pial, and Welsh -ot is for the plural sign -nd of pysg-od 
(fiah-es,) and -wr is for gwr (man,) so that the Latin word 
means afish-er, and the Welsh a man (ai) fish-es. 

104 The Romans often omitted s after ex-, as in expecto 
for ESSPlcTO Jecpeci. Hence expSlio, to ^ofisA o/, scrape, 
(from polIo, to polish,) may staod for Ex-sporfo, from spS- 
ilo, to strip, spoil. If extinct, extirpate, exult, exile, had 
retMned an etymologic forni, they would have tho forms of 
exslinct, exstw'pate, exsult, exiile.

§ 105 In Greek, ampmi is a star, vd/iot law, and ovoiia name, 
HO that if aatro-nomy (the law or science of the stars) were 
divided into astr-onomy, it would mean star-naming. 

106 The position of an affi^ is seldom changed (as in mis- 
take, rewH«s) altho it may happen that a prefix in one language 
may be a suffix in another.* Gernian has ah-brennen, an- 
haJten, and Danish af-brtende, an-holde, where Englisii has 
hurn off, hold on. English has ful-fll and mirth-ful; an off- 
set and a set-off; an off-cut and a cut-off; to up-hold and 
hold up; to over-look and look over; an out-hreaking and a 
breaking out. 

107 If the iame affix were used both as a prefix and suffix, 
tlie listener eould not in many eases determine whether an 
affix between two words should belong as a sufiix to the first, 
or a prefix to the second, aa in —

there is no difficulty in detecting them, if the ldngu\(,e to

109 If the prefix es- (ecs) had berime extinct the r la

be determined, and were there two words spen 1 ind pend 
(nip snip, plash splash,) of the same signification, it mould be

Spenser uses treaohuur, pillonr, favour, mirrbonr, raooor, labor, bouor and 
honour, horror and honour, humor and humour, arbor and aibonr. 

Thoae who wish to use -our etymologiejy, must diatinguiah between 
words got from old Frenoh, and tbose talsen directly from Latm, before 
they can spoil words like splendor, ranoor, HC[uttlor, torpor, stupor, vigor, 
&a. Riobardsou uses -our, but he does iwt oile the old Frineh aatlontiea 
for bis etymologies, so that there is no ovidenoe that he is aoonrato in bis 
spellings of aplendoar, squalor, torpoar, stupor, vigour aud vigorous, 
rancour and ranooroua, honour and honourablo. He refore 'splendour' 
to 'spleudBur,' and the unlatin word 'muror' to the modern Frenoh 

duoing no etymologio authority for either 'splendour' or 'mirror.' 

The following old French forma show that there was no uniform ety- 
mologio basis in that language.
