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

JAto^«n^lm,«K. General rule: All nasal vowels, followed by a eMsooaBt which begins 
another S3rllable, are loi^ : Jamie, mentor ^ bombe, cramdrej etc. 

But when them m* n is doublea, there is no nasal sound ; and the vowel is short : 
wtej^pettowntf etc* 

An exact standard for this nasal sound is not to be found in the English prraunaatioiL 
However something like it is heard in the wmd hang. But it must be seizea immediately 
preceding the articulation of the g. With r^^ard to this and other iiasal sounds, as on, im, 1 
must observe what Mr. Walker very prop^ly remarks with r^^ard to the sound of en in en- 
coQe. " If^ in pronouncing these sounds^ the tongue should once touch the roof of the mouth 
(as it happens in pronoimcing manf men, «m, sen, mm,) the French nasal sound would be 

The FVench standard for this is tn in out. 

Aime^ the <Mily word that has this termination is short. 

Aine is kmgoiil^ in hattne, chatne, M(ne,tratne, and in their derivatives. 

Air is doumful m the singular, ana h>ng in the'phnvl : Mair, Main, etc 

Aire, aia, aix, aue, aisse, are always long : jMnre, nalcta, etc 

Ait, eaU, are lon^ only in plalU, na/U, re]^,/aite, fyo^) 

Aitre, b always kuds : maure, etc. 

Ale is hng only mnme, pale, un male, rale, and in their derivatives : holer, jpakmr, etc 

AUe is always short : malle, etc. . 

Am, anj em, dk This nasal vowel has four sounds : it is always haig when sprit with an 
n, except in comptant {ready money.) 

When it is spelt with ej it is 1st long in the b^piiming and in the midcBe of wofds, and at 
the end of acgeetives, as in prudent, eneenUfie, exempt, etc. 

Sdly. GcHDerally diort at the eikl of substantives and adveriw, as in vent, mgement, etc 

3dly. Short and sloider in nden. Hen. eien, biem, lien, rien, etc 

4tluy. Long and slender in the plural of these woros, in mmtor, and some other wor^ 
nberem it has the sound of<«n in vin. 

The first sound is heard in the two syllables of enfant, and in the first of eneore, which the 
Ei^lish have adopted with its nasal sound. 

Tne second has for standard en m vent. Those who can pronounce en m enure, may 
easily obtain its short sound by dwdling less upon it. SomeUiing like it is he^ffd in the wmrd 

Tlw tfaircL heard in the last syllable of Hen. has something like it in the word tend. 

The fourth, beard in wuntor, has the sound of tn in vtn. See under Aim what is said of 
the nasd sounds. 

In the following Dictionary the three first sounds of that nasal vowel are always tfptSi en, 
Mcept after the hard ^ and ir, where tfaea is better calculated to preserve the hard artirala. 
tion of these two consonants. 

Ame b fong only in ante, in fame, N6me. it se pAme, un brame ; in the preterits, ds a imA m es, 
demand in^fiamme althoogn the m be douoled. 

Ane, Anne, are long only in crAne, 6ne, manes, la nunrne, une manne, damne, and con* 

Ape, Appe,axe long only in rape, and in the veib rojwr. 

Apre is always loi^. 

A^pie is kmg only m PAmes, Jacques. 

Ar is always short N. jB. Many except char and proper names, as C^sar, OibraHar, etc. 
which arepronounced long, at least, at the end of a seitfence. 

Arbe, General rule : In all s>'llables ending with an r, and folbwed by another eensonant 
whidi be»^ns another syllable, the vowel is snort ; barbe, bereeau, etc 

Ard, M, are doubtlul. But when an e mute folfows the c{ or I, the a is short See Arbe^ 
vafard, eafarde. 

Are is always lo^g. but becomcs^short before a masculine syllable i il ]^are, U para, etc 

Arre. General rule : All vowels before rr, which form a single articulation, are long; 
as arret, barre, etc. 

Exceptions to this rule will be found m their respective places. 

Art is longonty m hourrari. 

As is genorally fong, as in tas, bas, as, Pallas, etc 

Ase. General rule : s or Zy betvi'eeu two vowels, the last of which is an e mute, lenetheni 
and opens the penultima : base, pese, etc but tins penoltima often becomes short bcnore a 
masculine syllable, as in peser, appmser, etc. 

Aspe. (xeneral rule : An s arUcuIated afW a vowel,.and foUowed by another consonant, 
always renders the vowel i^rl : Jaspe, masque, lustre, etc 

Asse is kmi^ in the substantives basse, chasse, (shrine^) dasse, 4chasse, passe, masse, (stakey* 
and tasse: m the adjectives basse, grasse, las^; in the verbs casse. anuuse, enchasse, 
eompasse, sasse ; and in their masculine terminations, casser, etc. in words derived fimn, or 
composed of these verbs ; also in Uiese terminations of the subjunctive mood, aimasse, panaa 
ses chantassent, etc. it is sl)ort in all other words. 


6 RULES woa. 

At is ouiy long in bdtf m3tf degat, and in the third person singular of the fMreterit of the 
subjunctive: qi^il, aimatf etc. 

Ale, Ales, are long onl^' in pdte, hdle, il appaUf gate, ntate, dhmte ; and in the preterit 
tenses, chAntateSf etc. 

Aire, Atlre, is only short in quatrt ; battrtf and its derivatives. 

Ah, (a false diphtnong) hasthe>three sounds of the French o^(Sce O.) 

It is generally long ana (^n before a feminine termination ; or a c<ui9onant at the wad of a 
«^'ord ; in the plural number, and under the circumflex accent ; as in auge, diaud, mauXf etc. 

It is short in Pauf, and before two consonants, as in auefnenta; etc. 

It is long and broad before re, as in resUxure, etc. in allother cases it is generally doubtful ; 
as in axtdactf^jKaderyjoyau, etc. 

Ai'e is short in ixuxj cave, etc. oAener long, as in grave f enirare, etc. and doubtful in btxme 
and Bcdave, 

Am is iUwa^'s long ; cadavref etc. 

AXf aa»j are always short ; thorax ^ fxxraUaxej etc. 


The French Academy distinguishes three sounds of4his letter : the chstj the open, and the 

But the open may be more or less so. It is a little open in/ermef and entirely so in procea. 
When it is a little open, the Acactemy calls it open acute, and assig^ for its standiurd ^e 
first e in trofnpeUe, Dumarsais, and otners, call it the common or middle e : when it is en* 
tirely open, it is called open grave.. Therefore we must distingubh three masculine isj viz. 
the dosej the open acuUf and the open grave.* 

These are termed masculine, in opposition to the mute «, which is the «ign of the feminine 
gender in most adjectives, and all past participles. 

The close ^ is so called iix>m its oeing pronbuncefl with the mouth almost Closed, and from 
IS slender sound. 

It may be deemed short, if compared with its ieminine termination, wherein the e, mute, 
obliges us to dwell somewnat more upon it, as is obvious in ots^, ais^e ; but it is long, if com* 
pared wiUi the open acute, which is shorter, though it frequently bears tne same accent. 
This is obser\*able in cr^S, wherein the first ^ is somewhat more open than the last, and evi- 
dently shorter, according to the general rule which is to be found after the terminalimi £i.

The natural standard for this ^ is tiie primitive sound by which it is known in the French 
alphabet, as in boni^, and answers to the first letter in the En^ish alphsJti^, as in fate. 

The c^n acute ^ is so named from being somewhat m<H^ open than the close ^, ai^ from 
the acute accent which it frequently bears. It is fouiid in the first ^ of cr^, or irompette, and 
is the same as in the English words, met, ebh ; it is always short 

The open grave ^ is so called from rcciuiring a greater opening of the mouth, and firom the 
grave or circumflex aceent which generally attenas it, as in apn^s and the. It is similar in 
sound to Uie English e in Ihvre. 

*' The mute e is a mere emission of the voice, which is hardly heard ; it is so imperceptible^ 
that a man born blind could not find the least cliflerencc in hearing froCf or froqiUf arfy, or 
eripe." D'Olivet 

Dumarsais thinks that the articulation of tlic consonant by whidi it is preceded, is sufiiaent 
to express it, as in mner, and dmender, the explanatory spellinff of m^ener and cfemamjer. 
However, in monosyllables, and in the first s^^lubles of oth^ words, the hnperfect sound ol 
this letter is more perceptible, and may be termed gidhtroL 

At the end of polysyllables, where it is entirely mute, it is like the second e in there, and 
generally serves to lengthen <Nr <H>en the Drcccdingvowel : when it is more perceptible it is 
like Uie e in battery, or orer ; ana even then the French suppress it as oflen as they can. 
especially when the preceding or following syllable has a foil sound. 

P. Catmeau,the last grammarian who has written on this subject, gives the following exam- 
ple, which is very correct : ** Qmnd vous serez ie mime, voua me trouoerez le mime. This 
sentence contains thirteen syllables in prose, quand-nx>u9-se^rex4e-mSme-vouS'nie-trou-W'rez- 
U-rnhne. In poetry tnime would have two syllables. However, in familiar reading and 
conversation, it is pronounced in eight syllables only, qtiand<xm^^8rel-mime-voum-troui>-rd' 
mSme." The suppression of that e is precisely the reason why foreigners suppose the French 
speak so very quick. 

This imperfect sound is never suflered in two syllables together at the end of a word. To 
avoid this dissonance, it is changed into an <^n ^, in the penultima of verbs, when their last 

S liable becomes mute, as mener, m^ ; some words double their ccmsonant, (which (»t>duGes 
e same cfiect,) as tenir, que tu tiennes ; others change that e into the diphthong oi, as devoir, 

Whea the pronoun ,/« comes after i^ verb, it produces the same eflfect, so that /e chanfe,Je 
mhie, become chante-je ? men^-je ? And in this case the guttural e rf mener that had become 
open acute in mhte, becomes again guttural iu men^-Je ?

£. when under the acute accent, is eenerallv close at the end of words, as bont^, aiti : fUBy, 
m aoveitts derived from ac|{ectives ending in ^ as auiment : 3dly. before the feminine termi- 
nation of acyectives where it is somewhat longer, as in ai$ie: in any other place it is almost 
always open acute.* It is close likewise inline termination ex aoM er, when the r is ^bent ) 
and open aciite in any other place where it is not open grave, or doubtful. ' 

It is generally open grave under the circumflex, and grave accent, sometimes doubtful, as 
will be seen hereafter. 

N. B. The following rules relate to the open acute h, and to the opengrcax, when the 
word dote Is not mentioned.

Ege is always Imig ; college, etc. M. Peraud makes it short. The pre/ailinr custom teems 
to be for iHxmoundng it long at the end of a sentence, and short in any other place. 

&pfe is always dioHrt ; regie, seigU, eic, 

&ne is doubUiU ; r^ne, douegne^ etc.

etc And whenever the m orn is articulated, the e is open acute. 

Erne is shovt only in seme. It is doubtful in crhne ; and kuig in any other word. How- 
ever, the terminatKMns in iane are frequently heard sh<H:t before another word. 

Ene b Icmg only mchte, chine, seine,gene, aikne,rine,frhke, arine, pine, and in all proper 
names. Enne is always short, ^ireanie, etc. 

£pe is always kn:^ ; ctipe, etc. 

^pre is short cmly in lepre^ etc. 

^fe, £n^, are always smut ; ipr4cepu, scqatre. etc.

m all nouns and verbs, as otmer, berger, etc. when the r is wAeok : but when the r is julicu- 
lated, as it must be, especially in veros, before a wont beginning with a vowel, the e is open 
acute, and short. 

Erbe, Erce, Erse, Erehe, Erde. Erde,Erdre, are all short See Arbe. 

Erd, Ert, are doubtfol ; U nerd, tUsert, etc. 

Ere is doabilfu\,Jrire, chimere, etc. but it is uniformly loiig in the third person plural of 
veirbs; il»etph^enL.parlhtnt,^e, 

Erge, Ergue, Erie, Erme, Erne, Erpe, Erie, Ertre, Esque, Ette, Estre, are all short. 
See Jrfe. 

Erre is always kmr, even before a masculine syllable ; guerre, verrone, etc. ; but it is short 
when the^two rr are heard separately, as in erreur, etc. 

Esse b kms only in abesse, pro/esse, confesse, presse, compresse, cesse, lease, expresse, il e^em- prcffesse, 

Et IS kmg only in orrH, b4nHyforH,genH, prit, oxrrH, acquit, intSrit, tit,protH, il est.

Eu ; this diphthong has three dtflerent sounds : it is IcHDg and dose mje&ne, (fasting ;) short 
in>tme. (young:) fong and opeji in Aeurre. 

The first lias no standard in English ; but it may be obtained by pressing the lips a little 
forward, in such a manner as to leave the breath a narrower passage than for the e of oeer, 
and by dweDii^ longer open it. 

The second is sooMwfaat more open than the e of over, and can hardly be distinguiAed 
from it. 

The third may be obtained by opening the Hps somewhat wider, and in a mora circular 
form, than for tneeof otxr, and by protnSiing the aQnnd.t 

* Mhos been thought proper to adhere lo the ancient custom of uniting this second ewith the 
meuts accent, to axoid the double mistake frequently occasioned by those who of late haxe 
toritten U with the grace accent, m some terminations, as hce, 6de, etc. Those who are un- 
SKquaSnted with Mr, lyOlicel^s rules, being misled by the granoe accent,, gioe to that ^ the 
sound of the open grace h, whffst. on tJie other hand, they are induced to f^ound with the

This letter haatvpo sounds; it is lonr in ^cse, awl short ia Aaf. 

There is no standard for these sounds in English. To form the first, observe the situatS uu 
of the tongue when you pronounce the Enslish letter a. It widens itself into the cheeks, so 
that it toudies the first grinders. When me tougue is in this situation, advance both fips a 
lilde forwards, ■^"^iiy them at the same time ia such a manner as to leave a narrow oval 
passage for the breath. This movement will li^^htly press the tongue between the gri n de c , 
cmd hs ^ agwnat the ibre^eeth of the inferior jaw, and thus let the breath pass which is 
necessary to emit the sound of the French ti. Jts short sound is formed by dwelling less upon it. 

€khe IS long only in bache, embvehe, d^buche, 

Ue is always kmg: vm^ioriue, etc. 

(Jjpe is douMfiri : i^ftttv, J^ge, etc 

i^ is long only in mU. and in all the tenses nfbr^Uer, 

Um, MM. See Ai$i^ Tlus nasal vowel has no standard ia Eaglish. Its sound is formed 
by lowering the inferior part of the mouth somewhat mwe than for the pronunciation of tt^ 
okking at the same thne the openinr of the lips more circular, and tnrowing the bmta 
against the interior part of the roof, whilst the tongue touches iighdy the grinders in remov 
ing a little fimn the fove-teeth of the inferior jaw. 

CAiies is long only in preterit tenses: paHpjWp repAwey, etc

N. B. Few or th^ rules are without some excepUons. These exceptions, together with

Sd. General Rule.— All final consonajits that are articDkUed wlien a word ftaadf alone, 
or before the consonant of another wmti, preserve the same articulation bdbre a vowd, ub- 
less otherwise mentioned in the following observations. 

B is articulated only in radoui^t and proper names, even before a oonaooant. 

C. When the final c is articulated, it has the articu]ati<Mi of it. 

It is always silent in accrocy arsemCf broCf etdignat:, mare, {weiM orgrtmnda,) eatomae,lacs, 
{Iwe knoU;) in the last syllable ofniccvnctf and of porc-^pic, and aAer the naoal soundsy as 
tone, eonocane, etc. 

However, it is articulated in done at the beginnii^ of a sentence and before a vowel ; also 
\nfnme'eMcen8ffrancHdUUf du Hone au ndr, 

I). When tJie final d is heard before a vowel or h mute, it has the articulation of a L 

It is always silent in sourdf nidf in the terminations in ana, r<md, etc* and after an r, as in 
Jvwxrd^ accord, etc. 

In other w<Mtb it is frequently suppressed in cfmversation. 

It should never be suppressed, 1st. in de/ond en eomhk ; 2d. after quand, before U, ilt, tux, 
tt,t8, on,en, a, au, aux ; 3d. after adjectives followed by their sub^antives : jTtma hommt, 
grand arbrt, etc. 4th. after the third perscm of verbs, when thev are foUowed^by their (hpo- 
oDun personal, or the preposition h ; r^pond-U ? U eiUmd h dam, etc 

F. The final /'is seiuNrally articulated even before a censonanl. 

It is silent, even before a vowel ; 1st. in baillif, ckf, eerf; but is always heard in come de 
etrf: 2d. in chef and nerf when used in the followiug expressicms. chef-d^ceuarefnerf dk 
boeufs, although it must oe articulated ui any other place ; 3d. in pluHU nouns, as bceufa, 
etuhj &e. except di«/&, wherein it is ah^rays articulatea. 

G.^ The finally when it is not silent, has the articulation c^a it. 

It^ is articulated, 1st, in aang and rae^ before an adjective, eang idwuM, rang devi, &c. 
2d, in these or similar sentences, mer $at^ et eau, de rang en rang, &.G. Sd, always in bourg. 

According to M. F6raud it is also heara in lor^ beffure a substantive : Itmg iU, &c. whica 
he n>ells hn-kiti. The word long befbre a vowel is generally avoided, or the ^ suppressed 
in the pronunciation. 

In ioug some jntMiounce it as jf in bag, even befbre a consonant ; others siq^press it even 
befcNre a vowel. 

H. /f is seldom^ and oaght never to be final in French. It has no articulation. 

When it b deemed aspurate, '' it only communicMes to the vowel the properties of a conso* 
naiit ; that is to say : if the precedbg word end with a vowel, that voweX is never supfM-essed ; 
if it end with a consonant, that consonant is never connected with the vowel whicn follows 
To this is confined all the effect of the asph^ted H." WOUed: 
^ This pretended aspiration, so difierent from that of the English, is noUiing else than the 
hiatus occasioned by the meeting of two vowels, as in go on, go again. 

N. B. Hie h is preserved in the similar spelling only in words before which no vowel* is 
supfHiessed, and witti which no consonant is connected. 

It is proper to notice here some irr^^larities of this l^ter. 

In ccmversation or prose h is mute in Henri ; it may be upirated in poetry. 

According to the Academy it is better to a^irate it in kukux. The contrary custom stiii 

It is aspirated in Hollande and Hongrie, but mute in toile or fromage d^HoUande, Rdne or 
point (PHcngrie. 

It is mute in httU and its derivatives ; however, we spell and pronounce k hot, le huiUhie, 
la hmiaine, as if it were aspirated. 

Ome and its derivatives, and oui used substantively, iMtxhice the efiects of the aspn*ated h. 
No vowel is supprrased before these words, nor any consmiant connected with them, lee onze, 
lee onzihnes, Slc. le otd et le non. Urns vos out, &c. although we spell and pronounce Je croU 
qu'out^ instead of /e crois que out, 

L. The final / ls never pronounced in barril, cheml, ftteil, gentil,gril, outil. nombril, penH, 
soul, sourcil, pouts, Jils, cul. &it gentil in gentUMnomme, ana gril in verse, take the li<pud ar- 
ticulation oigl in seragKo, 

In conversation, some people, whom Richelet calls refiners, suppress it in qudque, quelqut- 
' fois, ouelqu^un, though they pronounce it m quel and quelconque. They suppress it likewise 
after the pronouns il. Us : and instead of* pronouncing il dU^ us ont dit, parle-i-U encore ? as if 
spelt il d%, il'zon-di, parl4i4en-kor 7 pronounce i'di, i-zondi, parl-tiren-Jw ? 

M. Chambaud ohsenes, with reg^ard to this last point, that the / cannot be silent in read- 
ing ; and that it D^xnild be bettef to pronounce it always^ to avoid double meaning. Since 
this supi^ession d* the / may occasion ambiguity, it cannot be too carefully avoid^. 

Al. The final m is never articulated when it makes a nasal sound. U is always artkn- 
lated in hem! item, and in foreign names, Amsterdoan, &c. However m is silent in Adam 
and Absalom, which have a nasal sound. 

N. ^ The final n, when it makes a nasal soimd, is articulated before a vowel only in the 
folfowiug^ cases : 

1st. Adjectives before their substantives, and mon, ton, son, rien, un, and bien (adveib.) 
lose their nasal sound in connecting their n with a following vowel ; certain auteur, diem 

lion, when tJie^'st vwrd determines, qualifies, or modifies the sound; as the article be/ore 
its noun; die adjective or pronoun be/ore Us substayUive; the sub^antive be/ore Us adjective', 
the noun or pronoun be/ore its verb ; the verb be/ore its pronoun, adverb, 'object, or end ; the 
adverb be/ore an ad^ecHrx or participle

«d. ^B^ and malin ought not to be placed before a sabstanlive, except matm etnnt,

P. The final p of coup, beaucoup, and trop, and of the words that have it articuiated befora 
a consonant, are the onlj^ ones heard before a vowel. 

Q. When the final q is not silent, it has the articulation of a A. It is always heard in ekn 
wbeaalone, and before a vowel ; also in C00. but never in cognfikcfe. 

R. The final r is ^enerallv articulated before vowels, at least in readinir.

L Wlien a verb is found to govern an ac- 
cusative in reeard to the thing, whether this 
be expressed by a noun or by a {^irase, the 
person (or what is used instead of the per- 
son,) governed by the same verb, is geoeraJIy 
to be considered as if affected by to ^ said to 
be the sign of the dative case,] let the manner 
in which it is presented be with or without any 
preposition : £//e dit la mime chMS it men 
jrire, she tells the same thing to my brother, 
or (by transposing the person governed be- 
fore the thing govamed, which transposiOom 
allows the suppression of the preposUien in 
EfigUsh,\ she tells my brother the same 
thing ; eliepromit h monfrhrt qtielk viendndt 
demain, she promised my brother that she 
would come to-morrow ; noits primes h Pmm 
mi vne quantild imtnenu de procisionSj we 
took from the enemy an immense quantity ol 

t is from the same cause that an injmtice 
affected Inf any part of faire, ialsser, voir, 
oulr. or enlenare {oontidered each a» em 
asLxtHary verb,) if that infmtirt govern 
an accuscdive in regard to the thing, ms per» 
son {or Mat is used instead of Uie person,} 
considered as governed by the auxiliary 
mrb, is often rendered as if affected by to 
(I) though the English prepositton commrilly 
used in these circumstances be by. when^the 
second^ verb is intnfduced nauwdy : Cesai 
fit promettre k Augustin oe venir le voir a» 
ch&teau, Cctsar made Augustine promise to 
come and see him at the castle; c'est iia 
grand talent que de savoir faire aimer la verta 
aux m^haas, to knoto how to make the wicked 
love virtue (or virtue loved by thewkked) is a 
great talent* 

IL The French preposition ^ is praflxed 
to an infinitive when the eimressioB which 
governs it would require h (to) before the 
name of the thing lor which the infiaitiva 
then stands, on account of a tendency towardb 
the object, «to. hence, U sera condamni d 
rendre Vargad, he will be condemnadto 
return d* money (because we say coeuummtr 
une personme h une chose, to condemn a per- 
son io a thi9^.) Or, when this infiniUve nam 
a passive meaning, though presented hi its 
aruve form, in which circumstance it mighl 
govern in the aocusativa a preceding 

18 A ABA 

b&r, bll, b&se : th^re, ibb, ovir : Md, {\g : r6be, rdb, Idrd : ni6od, gdod. 

(or pronoun) which is already in one case : 
La question eH diffwUe a riscudrtf the aues- 
tion is difficult to solve or to be solved (herCy 
la quesUon might be made the acauoHve of 
iwudre ; /or, we migfU «ay, U ett difficUe de 
tttomdre la quesUon.) J'ai deux ou troi* 
kttrtM h icrire, I have two or three letters to 
write (to be written, which must be written, 
which I must write,) or, I am to write, (1 
mnst write) two or three letters. 
IlL As the French preposition hf prefixed 

luu to announce 0' 

lo a noun, is often foui 

low far 

a qualification or modification extends, ex- 
tended (NT may extend, so, when prefixed to 
an infinitive, it may be found to announce the 
tame: line veste h manchee. a waistcoat 
with deeves to it, or that has sleeves ; il aime 
i la/otUf he loves to distraction ; elle iaffHgt 
h la mortf she grieves herself to death ; a^est 
mn homme h tout fairej he is a man who will 
do any thing or fit for any thing ; voilh %ti^ 
Tproc^e h ixu» ntinerf that is a law-suit which 
n likely to ruin ^rou : hence also, nn maltre k 
danser. a danctng-master, or a master who 
teaches' dancing, 

IV. The French preposition h is often 
found to denote {hittjf part, or business, and 
eveutum: C*est ii moi h rous jirouxer, it is 
my duty (part or business) to prove to you, 
or I am to prove to you (with an emphasis 
upon my or /;) rest h vous h porter, it is 
vour turn to speak, or now you are to ^[>cak 
(with an emphasis upon your or you.) 

V, The same preposition h serves to de- 
note that possession or appertenancc which, 
after a tense of to 6e in the sense oi to belong 
to. causes the English possessor to be present- 
ecl with V (as if a termmation) and the English 
ofwhxmt to become whose, when transp<»ed : 
A qui est cette maison-ci 7 whose house is this ? 
Eue est h Monsieur Bernard, it b Monsieur 
Bernard's. This 's being erroneously said to 
be the sign of the possessive case, see Salm- 
on^s^rst Principles qftiie Englisk Graptmar, 
where the nature of '« is traced to its origin. 

VI, As de, when used instead of depuis 
and rendered in En^^lish by /rom,^ serves to 
announce the principle of action, or point 
from which one starts, has Parted, or is to 
start, so h (U>) senses to announce the end t^ 
action, (NT potnt whereat an action ceases, lias 
teasea, or is to cease ; hence, nous irons de 
Rochester h Douvres, we idiall go from Ro- 
diester to Dover^ V, En, 

BIT', Here it u proper to add, that if, for 
0»e principle of actum, we use depuis instead 
of de. we snould. for the end of action, use 
iasqu% {as far as) instead ofk : fience, depuis 
le matin jusqu' Iru soir, or du matin au soir, 
from morning to nield ; de Londres ^ Pari^, 
or depuis Londres Jusqu'ci Paris, from JLon- 
ionto Paris. 

VII, The French preposition h often dis- 
appears in making the French phrases Eng- 
mii; for 'nstance, when the principle of 
action happens to be placed after the end of 
action : A trois jours de Ih, three da^ after ; 
h vingt Heues drici, twenty leagues on (hence 
or from this spot.) Besides, the English lan- 
*guajge abounds with compound words, the 
uiitial of which particularizes the next; and, 
to form these, a transposition takes place. 
ii^iereby the preposiuon which wo\ild be usea 

before the particularizing noun, if to be ex- 
pressed after the noun particularized, become! 
suppressed : hence imp<4h Peau, a water-pot ; 
un moulin h ventj a wind-mill ; tene chmse a 
bras, an arm-chan* ; une botte hfusUj a tinder 
box: de la sauce aux ognons, onion-sauce; 
une bouteille ^ Plwile, an oil-bottle ; le marchi 
au foin, the hay-market; une femme aux 
Imitres, an oyster-woman, etc, iSee, howecer, 
de, Observ, 1. as 'also the examples of Obser- 
ration I. here. Again, au, a la, aux, used to 
alarm or call assistance, disappear in English : 
aufeu, fire ! au voleur, thief! 

VIII, The preposition for principle of ac- 
tion {de) is often left understood ; and in thi* 
circumstance instead of from and to (accord- 
ing to Obs. VI, {Uu English may use about, 
tlien or ; or between, then and : lis ^taienl 
nmfh dix mille, they were about nine or ten 
thousand, or. they were between nine and ten 
thousand ; for, tncy were from nine to ten 

IX, Sometintes the French preposition it 
is found rendered by a in English, where it 
presents a sort df compound word : A bord^ 
aboaurd for on board ; au lit, a-bed ybr on bed 
or in b ed. 

(nr 77tts English particle a is sometnnes 
found before a jKoiictple present : he is eone 
a fishing, *il est aU4 pScher, or U est cUIea la 
pSche : she is a \«'riting, elle est h 4crire or die

ly which of the precedii^ English prepom- 
tmis rixNild bensed in p r e f eren ce, (me ourht 
to ooBsider what sense dt b used m, and to 
koovr the real value of each English prepo- 
shion. However as thane is no word in the 
FVench language, that puzzles xosx^ an En- 
glish person than this word c£f, the folk>wing 
ramarVs may be of service to the student. 

h When two nouns come together, one of 
which serves to particularize the other, the 
pwticulaiizinff <»• will generally come in 
FVeach with St and in En^i^ whh q/*, ex. 
Lt r9yauM« dfAn^hAtrrt^ the kingdom of 
E n g l a nd. ^ £^npniicecb(«ai^,aprinceofUie 
blood. I/7I ApinnKcfem^riCe, amanof merit. 
Now as the particalarizii^ noun is the equi- 

valent of an adjective, it often happens that the 
Eaiglish.chi^^ge the French particulariziaff 
noun into an adjective, ex. Unt femmt & 
rerte,a virtuous woman. Vn homme delnen^ 
a good man, a worthy man. Un carroue de 
^JMte^e, a hired coach, etc. 

Tie Eng^i^, for the sake of deapaldi, often 
place the particularizii^ noun before the par- 
ticularized one, which constniction enatblcs 
them to suppress the preposition {or an equi- 
valent) which otherwise must be expressed. 
That construction can take place especially 
when the particulariziiM^ noun denotes Matter, 
me, qual&u, etc. ex. Ifyte montre d^or, a gola 
watdi. (Am mme d^argent, a silver mine. 
Une chandeUedecirtf a wax candle, tie. Ob- 
serve, that A bottle of wine^ it in Prendi, 
unebouteille de vin ; ^ A wine bottle ir une 
bouleiUc k vin — the first English cmistructioa 
means the qiumtity of wine a bottle containa, 
\h» secm^ tht $oH of bottk Jk to f>ut wine in. 
See also ^, Obaerv. VII. 

The French efe, placed between two sub- 
stai^ves, say Grammarians and Lexieogra* 
phers,comnionly causes in English theseccMid 
lo be in the possessive case ; as la nudum de 
man fhtj my father's house ; leJiU d^Akxan^ 
dre, Alexand^s scm ; le Uvrt de Pierre. 
Petor'sbodK; but they ought to have warneo 
the student that such a ecmstruction can talu 
place onlv when the second French noun if 
actually tne owmar or possessor of what tht 
firat noun means: for the construcUon now 
alluded to could not be used in the cireum* 
stances whidi have been noticed before ; and 
besides, that pretended possessive case, traced 
to its origin, is not what is comimMily suppo» 
ed. See Sabiunt^tjirst Principles of English

when be is aware of those circumstanees 
whidi have been noticed at ^,Obs.i. These

for a Frenchman to know when his de shouMl

///. The French de tsosed ibrthe English 
of to aanouttoe ou whom falls raillery ^ ntock- 
try, mwnmring or any other affection of the 
Boulf such as astomshfnentf etc. or to announce 
what occasions raUlery, etc. and consequently 
It may present itself at th&head of the cause 
which makes one bliuhf reperUf refoice, smile f 
etc. II se moque de son p^re, he laughs at 
his father. Powquoi riez reus de ce que je 
dis 7 why do you laugh at what I say 1 Asde 
ce que means sometimes because f see the next 

JV, The French de is used to announce al- 
to that cauK which in English comes MiVn/or 
(the real meaning of which /or is ellipticallv 
euttsef) CMT with Jmm (the meaning or whicb 
it then ellipticaJly original causej) or with 
wUh (the meaning of which b then be, let it 
be. with cause understood ; that is to say, the 
full meaning of which is then and the cause, 
of this is, was or unit be.) Hence it is that 
the French say, il mourra de chagrin, he will 
<fie for sorrow, with sorrow ; when the En- 
glirfi say, he will die for sorrowy they give to 
of the meaning of consequence elliptically for 
OM the consequence of ; that is to say. fie una die 
of sorrow is equal to this, he will aie, and this 
(his death) wul be Uie consequence of sor- 
row. Hence it is that as expre»ions which 
denote some affection of the soul generally 
have de aAer them to introduce the cause of 
the affection, we often find de ce que when 
'the cause is to be brought in with a verb, 
though generally introduced, in English, with 
tfiatf elliptically equal to for this, that; or be- 
cause ; or the cause is t/in, that, Je sms sur- 
pris de ce que vous iles venu, I am surprised 
at your being come, I am surprised that you 
Kre C(Mne, I am suiprised because you are 

V. The c(e which is generally used after 
a passive expression, before what would be 
the agent of the verb if used actively, is in 
English generally by, sometimes of {bni by is 
always rurht.) Now as the English bt/ is nu>st 
times reaaered into French by par, it is pro- 
per to dMerve here that de may be used 
when no part of the body is necetrarily to 
move, or when, after verbs, which suppose a 
motion of the body, this motion has <miy pro- 
dueed a pasnve condition or situation ; iience 
par afler a passive verb should hardly be used 
m French except before an active agent, I 
maen befiMPe an agent that has smne design 
or particular views in what is done by him, 
ex. Resteatimi de toutle nwnde, he isesteem- 
•d by every body (instead of tout U monde Pes- 
Umef every body esteems him.) EUe ^Urit 
a tfwiitfe de geuM incommodes, tuie was sor- 
roonded by treoUesome people. Now elle 
itoit entourie par de$ gens incommodes, wouM 
bo rendtt'ed oy common translators in this 
suue manner, she was narroimdtd by trouble- 
tomepeoi^,ynkereaB the true translation ought 
to be, me was mmrounded by duiffning trou- 
blesome people, or something eqiuvalent to it. 
However, wlien the passive verb, besides its 
natural government, is to be followed by de, 
w« must use par bemre the agent, ex. xbur 
work has been praised in a very oeNcate man- 
ner by a great acadtmiieian, votre oovrage a 

6l^ lou6 dHine maniCre fort delicate par on 
grand acad6roicien. 

VL The French du, m. de la f. (or de P 
before a vowel or h mute) and des pkiral. all 
of which generally become cfe when an adjec- 
tive is to be placed before a norjn taken in a 
partitive sense, may be rendered into En^^ 
by «oin« (or any, according to circumstanceB,) 
when only a small porticm or a small nun^Mer 
is meant, especially with an emphasis : bat 
when there is no emphasis to be laid upon the 
portion or number whether small or great, 
those partitive articles may be suppressed in 
English. Hence it is that we find uadu vin, 
expressed by he has some wine, and simply by 
he has wipe ; and Ua de ban vin by m has 
some good wine, and simply by he has good 

Whenever a noun osed in the partitive 
sense is affected by an expression which of it- 
self requires de before what it falls upon, then, 
for the sake of euphony, the Epelish some for 
its equivalent any) vritnout empnasis may oe 
suppressed, and ae alone be used; but as 
some (or any) with emphasis may be rendered 
by quelque, quelques, un peu, un pen de, e^. 
so of some {of any) etc. with emphasis, may 
be de queloue, de quelques, d'un peu, d'un 
pai de. Hence it is that the fVench say : 
tl nous a danni du vin, for he gave tis %oine or 
he gave us some wine, without emphasis as to 
the small quantity ; and il nous a domti un 
pen de vin, for he gave us some wine in the 
sense of he gave us a Uttle wine ; U nous • 
€Umnd un verre de vin, for he gave us a ghss . 
of wine (wherein Uie quantity is determioed 
by verre, glass ;) iX nous a montri du vkt, 
for he showed us wine, or some wine ; U nam 
a parU de vm. for he spoke to us of wim in 
the sense of he spoke to us of seme wine or 
he spoke to us of wine (indeterminately as to 
the quantity or sort.) 


After some English expressions of quaality 
number susceptible of beii^ used acQec- 

tively, tlie French particle de is suppi 
when the things or persons qioken or are lb 
be introduced m an indefinite sense, but if the 
things or persons spoken of have a definite 
signification, the French particle de cannot 
be suppressed. Hence, il a becatcotm d^esprit, 
he has mudi wit ; il a beaucotm de Pesprit 
dont vous parlex, he has miich of the wit of 
which you roeak ; i^aAeaifcottp<r«mi»,behas 
many friencu ; U a beaucoun des amis qui vcms 
monoteatf, he has many of those fHends whom 
you have not. 

Vn, The French de may be commonly 
used to express mbefbre any word which im- 
plies matmer. Hence, de & mamire dont U 
se eomporte, in the manner in which he be- 
haves; osez-vous me parier de cetts mam^, 
or de la sorte? dare you speak to me m that 
lor this) manner 1 Veis often expressed by 
m when it comes in the sense of d&nSf pm^ 
dont, durant. Hence, de notre temps, in ear 
time ; de jour, in the day-time ; demnd me- 
fm, early in the momin|^. In spewing of di- 
mensions, as in trois meds de long or itftt 
pieds de longueur, if the adiective of dimtn- 
sion be used in English, de cusappears ; if the 
noun of dimension DO lued, de is rendered ligr 
in: hence the English, three Jeet long or 
three feet in la^[lh. After a toperiative ex 



\iAae, bfti : i^Aae, taiaU, hham : tnAxA, e^nt, filn.* vm : moA.* bnui. 

,de,inihe seote of Auu, is generally 
to be m; in the sense of (Centre, it may bte 
amung o€ of,ex. Elie est la plos belle femme 
de la pwvinee, the is the handsomest woman 
m the country ; elle est la phis belle des fern- 
mes, Ae is the handsomest of or among wo- 
men. We find thai de may stand ibr on in 
yeaking of sides, as in «ie man c6tif on my 
SMle w on my part ; de pari el d^antre at des 
dmx cdteSf on both sides ; du cdti de Ptfrient, 
on the easi.or the east side, <m the east parts. 
<fc. We lud also that de b generally usea 
for the English <m before an instrument of mu« 
sick, when the verb jouer (to play) or some 
equivalent, comes along with it, as in Jouer de 
III harpCy an violoHf etc. to play on the harp, 
on the violin, de. 

VIII. Sometimes d^ is not expressed in 
English. Some cirmmstances have already 
been made obvioas, not only in the precedii^ 
observations on <fe^ bat auo in the 8th cb- 
servation on an, which see : the followkur may 
gaade^ the student in rqg^ard to those |wrases 
whadk may be similar to ihem. J%, befiMrean 
aiQective beloni^i^ to a nnmb» of individu- 
als expressed juM oefore, majr stand for qui 
estf qui soif, etc. and thc» it b often found 
suppresied in English though it might be ren- 
dered by wAo or toMlcfc is, etc. Danseeeom- 
batilyeut 3000 hoasmes de tues {qtd/urent 
tmeSf) in that action there wi«ie 3000 men 
killed. Incesotd^qffieier, and similar phra- 
ses, if the noun be made an En^ish adjec- 
tive, de will disappear ; if the n<mn be ex- 
prened by an Ei^li^ noun, de will be ren- 
dered bv of a or o/* an for the suunilar, and 
of for the plural : hmce, that footiA officer 
mid that fool of an qficer. The reason is now 
obWoos why mon coquin de vaud ma v be my 
raseaUa servant. In il n*a mangi at tout te 
jouTf une reviendra de dix anSf etc. de may 
disappear or be rendered by ybf\ hence AeAa« 
eden nothing this day cr he has eaten 
notdng for this whole day, and he wUl not 
come back these ten years or he will not come 
back for these ten years. Sometimes de is 
prefijQBd to a noun without an adjective, aAer 
a tmse of Hre^ because this noun is scwiewhat 
equal to an adjective, as m ilestde voire in- 
ta4t de hd jdmre {U est uOiressant pour vous 
debdplaire) it is your inta-est to please him. 
S om etimes a noon which has^ thus pre- 
fixed is attended with an adjectivOj and then 
both are somewhat equal to an adjective af- 
fected by an adverb: c^est de ul dernih^ 
fotiCf it IS the greatest folly, equal to, it is ex- 
tremely fo<rfish. 

IX. ^ is to be used before an infinitive 
in several circumstances which I shall cota- 
prise in three articles ; and in the fourth I 
shall mention thcMe v<»bt which may be fol- 
lowed by all infinitive without de, contrary io> 
the general rule. 

Ist. Whenever an infinitive is hntroduced 
instead <^ a noun of things which ought to 
take de before it on account of the preceding 
expression, this infinitive should also take de. 
Hence an infinitive governed by a preceding 
expression is generally to have de, not only 
wheu the preMding e:q>ression reouires o/'in 
En^ish before the thin? it may fall upon, but 
in tnoee chrcumstances (wherein it is to be in- 
Irodnced instead of a noun) which I have 

ticedinObs.2,3,4: ex. I haxe had the 1^ 
nour of sp^pkins to Aun, j'ai eu I'honnear «Ib 
hiipaner; we forewarn you to take your meet- 
sures, nous vous avertissons de prnidre ves 
mesures ; I do not hinder himjrom comity 
herefje ne Temp^he pas de venir ici ; Ilau^ 
at seeing him run in that manner, je ris deie 
voir courir de cette mani^re (the seeing of 
hyn run in that manner is the cause of my 
Isuighing). I am glad to fnd you here,\e suit 
bien aise de vous trouver ici (the findii^ <^ 
you here is the cause of my being glad.) 

tdly. Whenever an infinitive is made to 
stand where a noun of things govoned in the 
accusative should stand, that infinitive is ge- 
nerally to have de before it, though the noon 
oufffat not to take de, since the accusative ui 
a thing or person is to present itself without 
any preposition. Hence, though we say. to 
forget a thing, onbHer une chose, yti intaoe 
forgotten to bring my books, dioara be ren- 
dered by fai oublii d'apporter mes livres (i 
have for gotten what 7 to bring my books is 
theanswer, therefore to bring my books stands 
here for the thing which I have forgotten, 
that is io say to bring my books stands in- 
stead of the accusative of 1 have forgotten.) 
Ha« I must observe that a few veiiis wfaidi 
govern the accusative of the thing, will how- 
ever re(piire h befinv the infimtive which 
they are made to jgovem in order to express 
a tendency towanu doing or acquiring, etc. 
what the infinitive means : and though we say, 
aimer une ctune, apprendre une chose, mon- 
trer une chose, ^^ler une chose, diercner une 
cAose. etc. we must say, aimer a faire. ap- 
prenare h faire, montrer h fare, ritudier h 
faire, chercher A faire, etc. See also hereaf- 
ter. ai4lhlu. 

odly. Whenever an infinitive, which ouriit 
naturally to be the nominative of another 
verb, is placed after this other verb, because 
t/orcehasbeehgivcmto it as a boirdwed no- 
minative; it seems that this infimtive, thrust 
■out of its place, is introduced as a sort of ac- 
cusative case ; and th»refi»« it should take 
de accordinff to iftliat has been observed at 
the article 2a^y. And yet if the same infini- 
tive were actually men as the nominative <^ 
the other verb, it ought to present itself with- 
out any preposition. Hence it is that, it is use- 
less to speak to me about it, it in€Wnch, il est 
inutile<fem'enparier; tnsteuilo/'m'en-parier 
est inutile, the equivalent of to speak to me 
about it is useless. The first construction is 
that which suits best the Frenchgenius, whiA 
Ukes to make every thing tivpto'' in a sortqf 
accusatUxform. See A, Obs. II. 

4tJilif. Certain French verbs which goven 
the thmff in the aocosalive, will have the in- 
finitive mey govern (instead of that accusa- 
tive) in^esent itself barely without any pr»o- 
sition : such are, ajfinner, aimer mieux, aiier, 
assurer, avouer, compter, confesser, croire, 
daigner, dklarer, deposerj wisirer, devoir, 
dire, entendre, encoyer, faxre, faUoir, t^imof 
giner, laisser, mener, nter, osar, osOr, parot" 
tre, pouooir, pritendre. ptbHer. rapporter, re- 
coma4tre,sacoir, sembler, souhaiter, soutenir, 
valoir mieux, venir, voir : il affirme Tavoir 
vu, he affirms to have seen it, or he affirms 
that he has seen it, etc. Some of these will 
however be sometiBiet foUowed by ds amf
