Stages of life, contrasted with the present, convey an ide»,

. These verbs ore always joined la this manner eitliei' to the 
iHfimttne or participle; and although this would be a simpler 
way of parsing the verb than the common, yet in compliment 
pwhaps to the Greek and Latin, grammarians in general con- 
sider the auxiliary and the following verb in the infinitiTe o» 
participle as one vtrb, nid pante and construe it accordingly 
» Several of the auxiliaries in the Potential mood refe? to 
present, past, and ^<ur«^me. This needs not excite sui 
pnsej for even tlte Present Indicative can be made V» ox 
press /»/tire time as well as th^ Future itself. Thnik^" He 
teavtn i<mu to- mnrrow." '; ■- 7^ 

^««M< time is expressM in the foUowing sentence: "1 
wish be wuld or would oome just now." 

Past time is expressed with the similar anxiUaries: aa 
•It was ray desire that he should or would come yester 
lay. " Though he was ill, he m^ht recover." 

Air«r.T..~I am anxious tiiat he should or would come to 
morrow. If he oome, I may speak to him. If he would 
dehiyliw journey a few days, I m^Ai, eouUL wouUL or 
thould accompany him. "^ »' 

Although such examples astnese are oomdionly adduced 
•8 proofs tlat these auxiliaries refer to jww«n<, »«<, and 
future time, yet J think it is pretty evident that m^H could, 
would, and .«uii^ with mt^^d eon, merely exp^Sss libei^ 
ibihtp, will, aud<ft«y,without any reference to time atall. ana 
that the precue time is genenOly detmuined by the drift or 
soope of the B*ijtence, or rather by the adterb er participle 
that is subjoined or understood, and not by theee aiixiHaries 

Must and ot^hi, tor instance, merely imply tueeasitu, and 
ohltgahcn, withoM any necessary relation to tim; for when 
I say, "Imust do it," mw* merely denotes tiie fucunty I 
am undeiv ai^ <fe (Ae present time, which might easUy be 
mttdeyii<Mr«, by saying, " I musl do it next week;" here fti. 

I say, "I^nst hav^ done iti" here mtM< merely expresset 
**T*^' as before, and I have done, the past time. "These 
ntffM ye to do :' here ought merely denotes obUgation. and 
do the present time. ♦* These ought ye to have done ;" her* 
•UifAt nereiy expresses duty or obUgaHon, as beforei but

ing himself, when he knows that his conduct 
was so very improper. He was very much

vet learned he obedience by the thmgs which 
he suffered. If he is al6ne tell him the n^ws ; • 
but if there is any body i^h him, do not tell

Neither in this world, neither in the world to

1: When and is understoodf the verb must be 
plural ; as/ Wisdonl, happiness, (and) virtae, dwell 
with the golden mediocrity. 

Some thinty thftt when two singular nouns, 
coupled with af^d. axe nearly the same in meaning, 
the .verb may be singalar ; as, Tranooillity and "" 
peace c%e/2« there. Ignorance and ne^igence h<u 
produced this effect. This, however, is improper; 
for tranquillity and peace are tioo noons or names 
and two make tk plural; dierefore the verb should 
be plural. 

2. Two or more singular nouns coupled with a/ndf 
require a Verb in the singular number, when they 
denote only one person or thing; as. That able 
-scholar and critic luu been eminentl|r useful. 

3. Many writers use a plurai noun after the 
2d "of two numerical adjectives; thus. The first 
fiid second paget are torn. This I think improper ; 
it should rather be, The first and second page, i.'e. 
the first page and the second page are torn : — are, 
perhaps ; because independentiy of oAdy they are ^ 

boA in a tojrti state. GeTierationf hour, and 

«oani are singular in Ezodiis xx^6, Matt. xz. 5, Ac4

^^ e. Whea a wn^Wor noun has a clause joined lo 
It by «^, It IS often difficult to deteimine whether 
the verb should be singular or plural, espeeially as 
,our most reputable authors use sometimes the one

•y, My unole, with his son, wu ia town yesterday. 
Others would say, ICy unele, with his ion, teerc jb

A.Z^ w.!?.P^'^/''*.^"',**»« ^°»' that the nouft 
be^emihiBexdunvely the real subject, then the 
verb should he jinffular; thus, Christ, wHh his 
three^ ch(^n disciples, was transfigured on the 
mount Here the verb is singular, because we 
5pow that none but Christ wa« tnmsfiguied ; the 
disciples were notjbtni associates with him: thev

Mr. Murray, howeyer, thinks that the verb 
should be nngyiar in the < following and simikr 
sentences. << Prosperi^, with humility, renden iti 
possessors truly amiable." '<' The side 'A, wi^ 
the sides B and Of^vompo$» the triangle." In 
my opinion, on the oontiwy, the verb should be 
Murai, For, in the first sentence, it is not asserted 
that prosperity aione readers its possessor truly 
Mniable, ,Dut prosperity and' humility unUed^ and 
co-operatuig to produce an efftct in their jfo»n< 8tat0, 
which they were incapable of aohioTing in their iii- 
dividual capacity. 
If true, as Mr. Murray si^ that " the A^s V 

^hk the second sentMMse, is the trtie nominatiye to 
the verb, then it feUowSy'of couraej that the t|ro 
sides, B and 0, have no agency or share in forming 

-the triangle, and consequently that the side A alone 
eomppses the triangle. It is obyious, however, that 
me side cannc)^ form a triangle or three-idded figure, 

, «nd that the sides B and C are as much conceriil^ 
ill formkg the tiiangle as the ode A, aAd therefore 
the vwb should be j»liira^. 

U^ the whole, we may venture to give tiie two 
ibllowing general Irnles. 

1. That whoever the nou9 <^ piftnoun a/ier 
With euJsUB, aotfli, at mSen Joimdy with the sia- 
4^1ar nominative he/ore it, the verb should be ptm- 
Jtml; as, "She with^her sisteia are well." "His 
l^nrse, with its contettts, loere aMiacted firom his 
l^et" ** The general witb his inen were tahei 

lus^ the w(^ q/W pa lure as much the

^ •"'?'•* ™« ^'^^ M weU as she; the contei?,, as 

« L^ *»»« P«ree, were abstracted; and the men, 

as well as the general, were taken prisoners. If. 

' ^LlnL *"* f^P^ we say,-,^ well, then the 

meaning will be, she is well when in company with 

. win be entirely excluded. * - * 

2. When the noun after mU is a mere involun- 
tory or mai^mate instrument, the verb should be 
^uk^rj as. The Captain with his. men catches 
poor Africans and sells them for slaves. The Squire 
With his hoUhds kills a fox. Here the verb TsiZ 
ffular, because the men and hounds are not Joint- 
agents with the Captain and Squiw; they aro as 

. muoh the mere instruments in their hands as the 
ffun undpen m the hands of He and She in the fol-

, Of the Ariielea with Several Adjectives, 

\J^? ^ is Fefixed only to the first of several 
Jdjeotives aualffvmg one noun; as, A meek and 
holy man: W the article should be repeated, be- 
fL^!^ a^JMtive, when each adjective relat^ to 
• geneno word applicable to every one of the ad- 
i«ofcives. For example, "The black and white 
cows were sold yesterday) the red will be sold to- 

f o r wa n t of t he befa ^ wh ii i, W. ilre ied^a^ 
poee that the black and white cows mean only oS 

wuL^lt ^,f?««^^^ ^»*h «P0tfl of black and 
White, and if this is our meaning, the sentence 

'' * ■ ■"■ ■:. .. , ' ■ •■' -r ■■■;: 



■**" Pt'"^^^"^ 


ENaLiBH axisrtAX. 

(B rigbt; but if we m^^o different sorts, tbe 
one all black, and the otber all wHite, yre^ should 
insert. the trtiole before both; and say, 7%« blaok 
and the white cows, t.i^ IShmmik^iWB and the 
white cows were sold. , > > ' * 

^ Some think this distinction of little importance; 
tfnd it is really seldom attended to even by good 
writers; but in some oases it is neoessaiy; al- 
though in others there cannot, &om the nature of 
the thing, be any mistake. In the following sen- 
tenoes, for instance, the repetition oif t/^ before 
homed is not uecftaaiy, aIthoi%b it would be 
proper. "The fto^ and Aome^oows wer» sold 
last week.'' Here there cao be i^o mistake, two 
sorts were sold; for # cow caaiii^ be bald and 
horned too. i> \ >.. ^ 

The same remark may be made redpeotin^ the 
Demorutrativm^TonoupB mat has been tna4e i:^pect-

Rule IX. . .g ■' 

Any remarkable expression resembling a quota- 
lion or a command, is preceded by a comma; as, 
I'here is much truth in the proverb, Without pains 
M gains. I, say unto all, Watch. 

Rule X. 

Relatit pronouns admit of a comma before them 
»n some o<iSes, and in some not. 

When several words come between the relative 
and its antt^cedent,* a comma is inserted ; but not 
m other casus; as, There is no charm in the female 
sex, which uan supply the place of virtue. It is 
4abour only, which gives the relish to pi^ure. The 
first beatify of style is propriety, without which ail 
ornament us puerile and superfluous. It is barba* 
rous to injure those, from whom we have received a 

Rule XI. 

A comma is often inserted where a verb is under- 
stood, ana particularly before no^, but, and though, 
in such cases as the following : John has acquired 
much knowledge; his brother, (has acquired) little. 
A map ought to obey reason, not appetite. He was 
a grea't poet, but a bad man. The sun is up, though 
he b not visible. - :t0: , 

A comma is sometimes inf^rted between the two

It baa been stated, in Rule VI., tbat explanatory 
jrords and phrases, such as per/eca^^, indeed, doubt 
tessf formerly, in fine, &c., should be separated froift 
the context by a comma. 

^ Many.adverbs, however, and even phrases, when 
thej are considered of little importance, should 
TMt be separated from the rest of the sentence 
by commas; as. Be ye tlwrefiyre perfect. P«r- 
adventure teif shall be found there. AU thing* 
indeed are pure. Doubtless thoufart our fether. 
They were fwrnerly very studious. He was or 
latt convinced of his error. Be not ye therefiyn 
partakers witb them. Nevertheless the ^r man'» 
irisdom is despised. Anger is in ct manner like- 
madness. At length some pity wanned the mas- 
ter's breast. • f- - ► 

These twelve rules reqiectrnff the position of the comma, 
UMilude eyerything, it is presumed^ to be found in the more- 
Bumerona rales of larger yolnmes. But it is inposdble 
to make them perfect. For, "In many instances, the 
employment or omis|4()a of a comma, depends upon thr 
length or the shortness of a clause; the presence or ab- 
sence of a(\juncts; the importance or non-importance of 
the senflment. Indeed, with respect to pnnetoation, the^ 
praoded.of the best writers is extremely arbitrary ; manj 
omittiiig some of the usual commas, when no error in. 
sense, or in construction, i» lilely to arise from the omis- 
sion. Good sense and attenliye obsenration are more 
likely to regulate this subject than any mechanical «: 
rootionr. ., 

V The best general rule is, to pdint in sueh a manner tmU' 
make the sense eyident

The semiooloQ is uled to separate two memben 
of a sentence less dependent on eaoh other fclmi^ 
those separated by the comma. 

Sometimes the two members Iiaive a mutual de- 
pendence on one another, both in senseijiand syntax; 
sometim«i the preceding member makes complete 
lense of itself, and only the following one is de- 
pendent; and sonetlkes both seem to be inde- 
pendent , . 

As coals are to bamin».^)oals, and wood to fire;

over the poor people. Mercy and truth preserve 
the king; and his; throne is upheld by mercy. 
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man; 
he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich. 
Philosophy asserts, that Nature Is unlimited in her

The semicolon id sometimes employed to sepa^ 
fate simple members in which even no commas 
occur: thus, The pride of wealth is ooitemptible ; 
the pride of learning is pitiable; the pride of dig-'

true pranwneiation of words ; comprising Accent, 
Quantify, Emphasis, Pause, and Tone, and the 

•: mee^ure of v^ses. / 

; Accent is the laying of a greater force on one syl- 
«ble of a word than on another; as, Surmount: 

The quantity of a syllabie is that time which is 
occupied in pronouncing it. Quantity ip eiljier long 
or short; as OSnsOm^e. 

Emphasis is a remarkable stress laid upon cer- 
tain words in a sentence, to distinguish them from 
the rest, by making the meaning more apparent, 
as. Apply yourself more to ac£%«gfe knowleto than 
to shew ifc* ^ 

A P(^u^ is either a total (jessation or a short

Protopopmiaf or Personification, is that figure of 
■peeob by whiph we attribute life and action to iu- 
uiimate objects; as, The sea saw it and fled. 

A simile expresses tbe resemManoe that one ob- 
ject bears to another : as, Be shaU be like a free 
pla/mted by the riven oftoixiw. 

A metomhor is a simile without the sign (Kke, 
or as, Ac} ^f comparison j as, Me shall be a tree 
planted 2y, dfc. 

An allegory is a continuation of seyeoal meta- 
phors, so connected in sense as to form a kind of 
parable or fable; thus, the people of Israel toe 
represented under the image of a vine'; Thou hast 
brought a vine out if Egypt, ^., Ps^'lzzx. 8> to 17. 

An hy-pii^-b^U is a %are that represents things 
as greater or less, bettor or worse, than they really 
are; as, when David says of Saul and Jonathan, 
They were swifter tham eagles, they were stronger 
than lions. 

Irony is a figure by which we mean quite the 
oootwary of what we say; as, when Elijah said to 
the worshipperfiFof Baa!, Ory ahttd, for he is a god. 
<!«,.. . '■ ^- V . 

A metonymy is a figure by whio^ we put the 
cause for the effiiot, or the efieot for die cause; as, 
when we say, he reads Miltg^; we mean Milton's 
Works. Grey hairs should be respected, %,e.old 

Synicdochih the putting of a part for the wh^h, 
or the* whole for aj^urt, a definite number for an 
indefinite, &o. ; as, The waves for the sea, the head 
for the oeraon, and ten ^wusand for any great nt»»»* 
ber. This figure is nearly allied to metonymy.

♦ C7/»maa: is tl^e heightening of alhthe ciroum- 
•♦lanoes of an object or action, which we wish to

P^>*^ 'Vfordf AToy, <fec— See also Eom. viii

emotion of our mind, and enliven our disoourse bv - 
proposing Questions ; thus, Sdth the Lard said itl

Tuf preceding Orammar, owing to the uncommon precision and 
brevity of the Definitions, Rules, and Notes, is not only better adapted 
to the capacity of children than the generality of those styled Intro- 
ductory Orammars, but it is so extensively provided with exercises of 
9"^ery sort, that it will entirely supersede tlie use of Mr.'Mun-ay's 
Larger Orammar and Exerciset; for it is a mere outline, like bis 
Abridgement, which contains only about seven pages of exercises on 
bdd Qramfliar. This contains mdre than sixty. This contains a com' 
plete course of Orammar, and supersedes the use of any other book of 
the kind. 

In short,' by abridging every subject of minor importance ; by omitting / 
disotission on the numberless points about which grammarians differ 
by rendering the rules and definitions more perspicuous, and at th; 
same time abridging them more than one-half^ by selecting short 
sentences on 4:>ad gramntar ; by leaving few broken lines, and printing 
them close together— a< many exercises un^er each rrde of syntax are 
compressed into this epitome as there are in Mr. Murray^svolumeof ^ 
cises; so that the use of his Abridgement, his larger Grammar, ^nd 
that of his lilxereises, are completely superseded by this littw voljtime 
at Is. 6d.; while at the same time, the learner ^111 acquire as much 
knowledge of grammar with this in six months, as with all those 
volumes in twelve. . 

. The truth of this, as ynH as the unspeakable advantage of itaving 
^e- Grammar' and Bixen^ises i|} one volume, teachers will porudve at 
a glance: but Mparems may not so quickly perceive the superior 
brevity and accuraaiy of the rules, it may not be improper tc assist 
them a llttie, by comparing a few of the rtlles in this with those of Mr. 
Murray's: thus, 

Mr. Murray's Rules. 

Rule n. — Two or more nouns, 
&c., in the singular number, joined 
together by a* copulative con- 
junction expressed or understood, 
must have verbs, nouns, and pro- 
nouns agreeing with them in the 
plural number; as, ** Socrates and 
Plato were wise; tfiey were the 
most eminent p}|ilosophcrs of 
Greece." "The Min that rolls 
. tver our heads, ihe food tliat 
we receive, the vekt that we en- 
joy, daily admonish us of a suiie- 
rior and superintending power." — 
p. 148. 

Correspondent Rules in this. > 

Rule IV. — Two or more singu- 
lar nouns, coupled witli aniX, re- 
quire a „verb and pronotirr in tlio 
plural "iiumber; as, J^uich and 
John &?•« good boys, for Ihr.y art. 
busy.— p. 83. y 

*This rule is not only vague, but incorrect; for a meansj any one 
now any copulative conjunction will not combine the u^ncylof two oi 
more into one ; none but ^nd will do that. — Mr. M.^ Mtifd rule Ir 
eqnMly vague.
