Monosyllables endinffiny, /or J double the final letter; others do not. 

Examples: — #<//, log. 

Exceptions: — Clef, i/, of, sol, as, gas, has, ■was.yes, thus, is, his, 

Add, burr, buxs, htttt, egg, ebh, err,Jizz,fuzz, inn, odd. 

As a rule, monosyllables ending in c hard add i, jis lack. A few 
exceptions occur. 

A monosyllable or a word that has the accent on the last syllable, 
ending in a single consonant preceded by a single vowel doubles the 
final letter when adding a suffix beginning with a \ov,e\:_fit,_fitUd. X 
is never doubled. If the final consonant is not preceded by a single 
vowel or if the accent is not on the last syllable the final letter is not 
doubled; as,-^/rat,r/, traveler. 

When silent e ends a word, drop the e when a suffix beginning with 
a vowel is added; — have, having. Retain the e before ous, able and 
ably to preserve the soft sound of f and i' and in a few cases to prevent 
doubt as to the pronunciation; — peace, peaceable, hoeing. Do not drop 
the e before a suffix beginningwith a consonant. 'E^c.^Judgment , etc. 

The diphthong ei usually follows c ; ie usually after other conso- 
nants; — receive, belie/. AVhether to use ei or ie may be determined 
readily by the nearness of the first vowel to the preceding consonant 
in the alphabet. In receive the e is nearest to c in the alphabet so 
use it; in belie/ the i is nearest to / so use it. Seise and other ex- 
ceptions can readily be remembered. 

Final y following a consonant is usually changed to i before a 
suffix; — holy, holiness. Adding ing6xo^% the final e and changes i to 
y: — die, dying. Note the spelling, — try, trying. 

Compound words usually retain the spelling of the original parts. 
There are a number of exceptions to this rule; — always, -welcome, etc. 

To spell well train the eye as well as the ear. Write and rewrite 
in correct way words you commonly misspell till their form is fixed 
in your mind. 


Use a capital letter. 

1. For the first word of every sentence. 

2. For the first word after an introductory or set term as m the caso 
of laws and resolutions: Resolved.That — . Each line of a statement 
or bill of particulars may begin with a capital letter. 

3. For the first word of an answer to a question. 

4. Tobegiu proper names of persons, places, months, days, ships, 
etc. Also for titles of honor and distinction. 

g. For the pronoun I and the interjection O. 

6. For the first word of every line of poetry. 

7. For all the names by which God and Christ arc known. Words 
referrmg to the Deity should usually be capitalized. If a title is ex- 
pressed the pronoun referring to it in the same sentence need not have 
a capital. 

8. For all adjectives which are derived from proper names, names 
of races and nations; as, American, Cuban, Russian. 

9. For the first word of a quotation introduced after a colon. 

10. For common nouns when personified; ab. The Oak said to the 
Ash, etc. 

ir. To begin words and phrases that are used as names of particu- 
lar objects. 

12. For each important word in headings, subjects of papers, titles 
of books, heads of chapters, names of orUeri, and expressions of special 


In manuscript draw one line under words or parts that you want 

printed in itaHcs: two lines for small capitals; three lines for LARGE 

CAPITALS. You may also indicate in writing- any special type or 
characters you want used to bring out certain words or parts. 

Use italics to mark emphatic words, phrases and clauses. Degrees 
of emphasis may be indicated by the size of type used; as, ^ci, yes, 
YES! Words from foreign languages should be printed in italics. 
Special names of books, newspapers, magazines, and definite objects 
are frequently printed in italics or small capitals. The name of an 
author of a quotation or cited article is usually placed after the quo- 
tation and printed in italics. 

Do not crowd the page with capitals, punctuation marks and special 
characters. In these matters consult your printer. 


Marks of punctuation are used to separate words and groups of 
words in any composition for the purpose of making the meaning in- 
tended by the writer clear to the reader. Keep this in mind and it 
will help you in determining the marks to be used. 

The Period (.) indicates the greatest degree of separation and 
marks the completion of a thought. Use it at the end of all declara- 
tive and imperative sentences. A sentence is but a thought expressed 
in words and when that is stated the period is used. It is also used 
after all abbreviations (B. A., P. M., etc.) and as a mark between dollars 
and cents (f 100.41). 

The Colon (:) denotes the second greatest degree of separation 
and is used between the great, equal parts of a compound sentence, 
the members themselves being separated into parts by half degrees 
or semi-colons (;). The colon is also used before a long quotation or 
enumeration that is formally introduced and before a statement that 
sets forth in a sentence the same idea a second time. 

The Semicolon (;) is used when there is less break in the thought 
than the colon denotes. It is used before as, namely, to-wit, etc., 
when they introduce examples or illustrations; between the parts of 
sentences when the connectives are omitted or when the parts are long; 
between clauses that follow each other but have a common dependence, 
and wherever the use of a number of commas or the need of explanation 
requires a mark indicating greater separation in order to save from 
confusion and to plainly set forth the thought of the sentence. 

The Comma ( , ) denotes the least degree of separation. 1 1 is used 
before and after parenthetical expressions that are out of their natural 
order and connection; after each pair of words when used in pairs; 
between words or phrases when the connectives are omitted; after a 
clause that is itself a subject; after adjective, participial, appositive, 
independent and antithetical phrases; before and after a direct cjuota- 
tion or a quotation introduced by thai: after words that are repeated 
merely for emphasis ; separates contrasted words and phrases; takes 
the place of verbs to save repeating and is used in all cases where 
ambiguity would arise if it were not used. 

This series of four marks covers practically all cases that require 
division of the sentence for the purpose stated. A careful study of 
sentences involving the various points will well repay study and will 
enable a writer to effectively use these marks. 

The Interrogation Point (?) is used at the end of a sentence that 
asks a question. If the question is broken up into a number of parts 
or if there are several successive questions in the same sentence and 
yet all can be answered by one and the same statement, but one mark 
is used and that is placed at the end. A series of questions, however, 
that are on the same subject but disconnected even if related in sense, 
must each have its own mark. 

The Exclamation Point (!) is used after exclamatory expressions 
indicating emotion. In closely connected exclamatory expressions do 
not use it immediately after the interjection but at the end of the 

The Dash ( — ) is used to indicate a sudden break or turn in the 
thought; to take the place of omitted letters, figures and phrases, and 
sometimes before words repeated for emphasis. 

The Curves ( ) include expressions that have no necessary connec- 
tion with the sentence in which they are found and which can be 
omitted without destroj-ing the sentence. The matter within the 
curves is called (7 /arf«^/:(ri-:x or parenthetical expression. The curves 
are frequently used to inclose letters, figures or signs used for expla* 
nation, headings or divisions of matter. 

The punctuation of parenthetical expressions depends upon their 
use, position and relation to the sentence of which they are made 
a part. Use no marks before or after if none are needed in the sentence 
itself. When a comma is necessary it is better to place it after the last 
curve. If the parenthesis expresses emotion or is an inquiry, its own 
mark (? or ]) would be used within the curves and the comma would 
then be thrown before the curves, but as a rule no point should \^ used 
before the first curve if not required by the sentence without the 
parenthesis. Curves make composition look bad, so omit them when 
expressions are short and use commas instead. 

The Brackets [ ] are used to enclose words, expressions and char- 
acters that explain some preceding part or that have been inserted by 
authors or translators. 

The Apostrophe {') denotes an omission of a letter or letters. 

The Hyphen (-) connects the parts of compound words, divides 
words into syllables and is used at the end of aline where a part of the 
word runs over to the next line. 

Quotation Marks (" ") enclose words quoted by one author from 
the book of another or words spoken by persons in the narrative. 

The Index (Cj*) points to a passage to which attention is par- 
ticularly requested. 

The Brace (~.^— >) connects a number of items under one head. 

The Caret ( a ) shows that words that are omitted are to be inserted 
at point indicated. 

The Macron ( " ) indicates a long sound. 

The Breve ( ' ) indicates a short sound. 

The Dieresis ( " ) is placed over the second of two vowels and 
shows that they are to be pronounced separately. 

The Tilde (") over n adds to it the >■ sound; as.cutioii.iau-j/an.
