A NEW 

PRONOUNCING 

AND 

EXPLANATORY VOCABULARY, 

UPON AN IMPROVED PLAN, 

IN TWO PARTS. 



Part 1. Contains a choice selection of words used by the best English Authors, 
alphabetically arranged, from Monosyllables to the longest words. 

Part II. Consists of an extensive collection of words pronounced exactly alike; 
of words liable to be mistaken one for another : of Equivocal words : 
Synonymous words : words which change the accent, and those that double 
the final consonant : Prefixes and affixes, Greek and Latin words : and the 

SCRIPTURE PROPER NAMES. 



The whole carefully selected and arranged for the use of Schooli 
and Private Families, in British America. 



BY GEORGE GOUINLOCK, 

Formerly a British Teacher of long experience and extensive practice. 

Author of an Arithmetic, and Key to ditto, 

A system of general Geography, fyc. 



.nteied according to Act of the Provincial Legislature, in the Year One 
.« ; td Eight Hundred and Fifty-one, by George Gouinlock, in the

PREFACE. 



THIS little work requires no lengthened introductory remarks. Parents and 
Teachers will, on a very cursory review, perceive its paramount importance. 
Learning has been styled, the rich man's ornament and the poor man's riches. 
The fundamental branches of education are the most extensively useful, the 
the higher departments the most ornamental. Some acquirements are, at once, 
alike useful and ornamental : and among these, correct- spelling, polite pronun- 
ciation, and an intimate acquaintance with the meaning of words, hold a high 
rank. For the simultaneous acquisition of these elementary accomplishments, 
the following pages have been compiled ; and their thus accompanying each 
other, will be found to lesson the teacher's labor and economise the pupil's time. 
A suitable class-book of this kind has hitherto been much wanted in British 
America, and the public must judge whether this publication will supply the 
desideratum. 

The orthoepy has been chiefly taken from the best edition of Mr. Walker's 
Critical Pronouncing Dictionary ; which for some time has been the acknow- 
ledged standard of polite usage in that department, in the same manner that Dr. 
Johnson's Dictionary '- or along period, been generally considered the stand- 
ard of orthography. 

When Demosthenes, the prince of Athenian orators, was asked what was the 
fir3t requisite in oratory, — he answered, pronunciation : what was the second ? 
pronunciation : what was the third ? the great Rhetorician still answered pro- 
nunciation.* This shows in what estimation he held elegant pronunciation : 
and shall it be held in lower estimation in this age of refinement, — in the 19th 
century ! than it was 300 years prior to the commencement of the Christian era 7 
surely not. Undoubtedly it is a pleasing and desirable accomplishment, and 
youth is the best season for its acquisition. Would teachers then take a little 
pains to make their pupils thoroughly acquainted with the different vowel sounds 
in the Key, and to mark the accented syllables with a smart percussion of the 
voice, they would find them go on afterwards in the most easy and satisfactory 
manner. 

The Scripture Proper Names are taken from a masterly performance by Mr. 
Walker, entitled " A Key to the classical pronunciation of Greek, Latin, and 
Scripture Proper Names." This long catalogue of names is not given for an 
exercise in spelling, but merely for the sake of pronunciation : as in all well- 
regulated schools the Bible is used, more or less, as a class-book. It would, 
however, be no unprofitable exercise, for teachers to make their advanced classes 
occasionally read these Names word by word in rotation, for the better infixing 
in their memory the true pronunciation. This department has been much ne- 
glected, for we frequently hear the Scripture Proper Names improperly accented 
or otherwise mispronounced, even sometimes from the pulpit. 

Words in all living languages are liable to change in orthography, pronuncia- 
tion, and even in meaning and use. What a number of words in our language 
are changed in spelling since Dr. Johnson's time : for instance, one class of 
words, by universal consent, now end with c, as almanac, arctic, ecliptic, critic, 
electric, fabric, mechanic, music, public, tonic, £c. These and all such words 
in his diciionary end in ck. Another class of words are spelled thus in Dr. 
Johnson's Dictionary, emperour, superiour, inferiour, errour, horrour, honour, 

* Under the term pronunciation, the Ancients included action, gesture t &c. 



IV 

favour, terrour, <J-c. These words are now spelled by the learned and polita 
in England and America without the letter u. Hut there are a number of words 
of the same class and derivation only in a state of trausi'ion towards this change 
in England, such as ardour, arbour, colour, flavour, humiiir, harbour, labour , 
neighbour, tegour, splendour, tremour, vigour, &c. The s ame change in 
spelling these and all such words, is adopted m thi< book : because the John, 
sonian mode is ' useless to the orthography, opposed to etymology, and contrary 
to analogy'. — Pope says, 

In words as fashions the same rule will hold, 

Alike fantastic if too new or old : 

Be not the first by whom the new are tried, 

Nor yet the last to lay the old aside. 
Another change in orthography, though not of frequent occurrence, is adopted 
in this vocabulary ; viz, — In derivative words the final consonant of the primitive 
is doubled only when under the accent, in conformity with one of the best estab- 
lished principles of the language. Dr. Louth pointed out this error long ago, 
but its impoitancc has not hitherto met with the attention it deserves. He says, 
• The error of doubling the final consonant when not under the accent, frequently 
takes place in the words icorshipping, counsellin<x. \c, wh'ch, having the ac- 
cent on the first syllable, ought to be written worshiping, counseling, &c\ An 
ignorance of this rule has led many to write bigotted for bigoted, and from this 
spelling has arisen a false pronunciation ; but no letter seems to be more fre. 
quently doubled improperly than /. Why we should write libelling, revelling, 
cancelling, and yet offering, suffering, reasoning, I nm at a h ss to determine. 
What would we say of a man who wrote audittor garde .ner, laborter ? 

Perhaps the pronunciation of not many common words has been changed 
since Mr. Walker's lime ; the last edition of his valuable Dictionary with ' con. 
siderable improvements and large additions' by himself, was published in 1806. 
Since his time we have no further authority or guide. In America Webster's 
Dictionary, and in England the Imperial Dictionary recently published, iboth of 
them great national and standard works in other respects, are deficient in the 
department of pronunciation. They contain many hundreds ol new words, 
chiefly scientific, technical, and derived from other language?, all jvhich enrich 
the English tongue and render it more copious, but in pronunciation they are 
jejune and unsatisfactory. For the orthooy of these new words we must there- 
fore have recourse to Walker's standard, — polite usage. 

In this age of wonderful inventions and discoveries, it has lately been found 
out in a certain quarter that a spelling-book is unnecessary, and the reason 
assigned is, that in learning other languages no such book is used. But the 
cases are quite different. It is also urged as a better plan, to teach children to 
spell from their reading lessons: this should not be omitted, but teachers of ex- 
perience know well that it requires both methods, and another als'i, (to write to 
dictation) to make their pupils proficient in orthography. Those who are said 
to have made this discovery have, however, strongly recommended "The 
Spelling book superseded," — itself being a real Spelling-book, and to be used as 
such. As we never saw " The Spelling-book," — whether the one Dr. Mavor 
studied at school, or the one used in St. Patrick's time is alluded to we cannot 
tell ! — Thus far we concede, — that a spelling-book which gives neither the mean- 
ing nor the pronunciation of the words in its li interminable columns" may bo 
deemed worthless, but we think such as have both these requisites, are really 
useful to children in learning the language, w lich, in future, they are to speak 
and write. And where can a book of this kind be more necessary than m 
Canada ? to assist in the acquis'tion of correct orthography and pure English 
orthoepy among a population of different languages and dialects ;. — in the spell- 



V 



ing and pronunciation of a language, too, probably destined to become the uni- 
versal language of the world. 

Mr. Sullivan of the Dublin Normal School, is the author of ' The Spelling-book 
superseded.' Lil;e many ot!ier books on education it contains some useful hints 
to teachers ; but wherein consists its superiority or practical utility for school 
purposes? In one part of it he gives along 'collection of the most difficult 
words in the language' without either meaning or pronunciation ; which the 
pupils are required to spell, pronounce, and give their own ideas of the meaning 
of the words. The following are a few of the words as they appear in his book, 
without even an accent. " Chicane parterre phaeton suasive archives catarrh 
asthma phantasm devoir falchion cuirass demesne glacis marquee turquois valise 
finesse abscind phthisic hautboy morone sombre cartouch sophism yacht eschew 
pseudo furlough paraphernalia pharmacy epigrammatic masacre pneumatics 
orchestre mucilaginous schismatic corypheus heterogeneous mausoleum pleni- 
potentiary vermicelli diaphragm centrifugal metaphysical scholium homologous 
escutcheon pursuivant," and hundreds of others such as these. By perseverance 
children may learn to spell these words, but what havoc they must make in the 
pronunciation ! and « hat ideas they can be expected to have of their meaning 
(if any at all would be difficult to conjecture ! ! 

Words in Mr. Sullivan's book accompanied with the meaning, are chiefly a 
few monosyllables. In another list of words without any meaning to them, 
occupying II pages, and styled words of (lisp i ted or difficult pronunciation, he 
professes to gi\e the pronunciation : it will be seen, however, to be partial, in- 
elegant, and erroneous, when placed in juxa-position with Mr. Walker's. We 
give a specimen.

The Irish National School-books are frequently faulty in the division of word* 
into syllables, which must be productive of an erroneous pronunciation ; it may 
be good Irish orthoepy, — it is bad English. 1st. Some words are divided into 
one syllable more than they have in right pronunciation, such as anx-i-ous for 
anxious, pa-ti-eiil for pa-tient, pre-ci.ousfm pre-cious, fil.i.al for fil-ial, fa-vtil. 
i.ar forfa-mil iar, ra.pa-':i-ous tor ra-pa-cious, un-con-sci-ous for un-con-scious. 
2nd, Others are divided into one syllable less, as o-be-dient for o-be-di-ent, 
righ-teous for righ. icons, in-con-ve-nient for in-con. ve-ni-eut, pccu-liar for pe- 
cu-li-ar, il- us.trious lor il-lus-tri-ous. 3rd. A great number of words are divid- 
ed so as to give a wronir sound to one important vowel in the word, as gene-ral 
for gen-er-al, sov-e-reign for sov-er-eign, in-nu-me-ra-ble for in.nu-nier-a-blc, 
ge-o-gra-phy for ge.og.ra-phy, des-pon.den.ci/ for de-spon-den-cy, hor-i-zon for 
ho-ri-zon, se.par-a.tion for sep.ar-a-tion, re. pre. sent for rep-re-stnt, me- an- 
cho-ly for mel-an-cho-ly, des-pise for de-=pise, ne-glect-ed for nes-lect-ed. es- 
cape for e-scape, fe-ro-ci-ty for fc-roc-i-ly. 4'h. The termination ed should 
have been made a separate syllable, only when it is pronounced as such. And 
it would have been of great advantage to the pupils if the accented syllables had 
been marked. Dut these Irish books give the pupils as little assistance as possi- 
ble, and consequently throw the greatest labor upon the teachers. 

The compiler of this Vocabulary has ready for the press and will be published 
as quickly as possible, a series of four reading books in the most simple and re- 
gular gradation from the alphabet to the most difficult departments of reading, 
including all the varieties of composition in prose and all the various measures of 
poetry, with m,any things that will assist both teachers and pupils.

The English language being derived from so many different sources, 
is singularly rich in synonymous words : hence the meanings of 
so many words are given merely in synonymes. But most of 
words styled synonymes are like different shades of the same 
color ; they agree in the general sense, but differ in the appli- 
cation ; as will be seen from the following words of this class, 
when the shade of difference is properly exemplified ; thus : — 



To Abdicate a crown. 
Renounce error.

Section V. Derivation of words, — Prefixes and affixes. 
(to be committed to memory.) 

Words are either primitive or derivative. 

A primitive word is not derived from any other word in the lan- 
guage, as man, good, leach, work. 

A derivative word is formed from some other word or words, as 
mankind, goodness, teacher, workmanship. 

The primitive word from which the derivatives are formed, is 
called the root. The letters and syllables which are placed before 
the root in the formation of derivatives, are called prefixes. The 
letters and syllables which are placed after the root, are called 
affixes.

Section VI. — Scripture proper names. 
Mr. Walkers Rules for their Pronunciation. 

1. Where the vowels end a syllable with the accent on it, they 
have their long open sound, as S\a-b:d, Je'-hu, Si'-rach, Go'-slien, 
Tu-bal. 

2. When a consonant ends the syllabic, the preceding vowel is 
short, as Sam'-u-el, Lem-u-cl, Sim'-e-on, Sol'-o-mon, Suc'-colJi, 
Syn'-a-gogue. 

3. Every final i forming a distinct syllable, though unaccented, 
has the long open sound, as A'-i, A-ris-a-i. 

4. Every unaccented i ending a syllable, not final, is pronounced 
like e, as A'-ri-el, Ab'-di-el.; pronounced A'-re-el, Ab'-de-el. 

5. Sometimes the vowels ai are pronounced as a diphthong in 



151 Pronouncing and Explanatory Vocabulary. 

one syllable, like om* English diphthong in the word daily, as Ben- 
ai'-ah, Hu'-shai, Hti-rai; and sometimes they arc pronounced in 
two syllables as Sham'-ma-i, Skask'-a-i, Ber-ai'-ah, Ber-a-i'-ah. 

(3. Ck is pronounced like k, as Che'-mosh, Che'-bar, E'-noch, \>ru- 
nounced Ke-mosh, Ke'-bar, E'-nolc. Cherubim, and Rachel, seem 
to b; perfectly anglicised, as the Ch in these words is always heard 
as in the E iglish worJs cheer, child, riches. The same may be ob- 
served of Cherub, signifying an order of angels ; but when it means 
a city of the Babylonish empire, it ought to be pronounced Ke'-rub. 

7. G Ins its hard sound before c and i in Hebrew proper names, 
a? Gs'-ra. Ger'-i-zim, Gid'-e-on, Me-gid'-do, Gil' -gal, Ig-e-ab'-a-rim, 
Sha'-ge. Pci-gi-el, <f-c, with the exception of those words, which, 
by passing through the Greek of the New Testament, have con- 
formed to the Greek pronunciation ; such as Ge-nes' -a-relh, Beth' - 
phn-ge, <f-c, pronounced Je-nes '-a-reth, Bcth'-fa-je, 8fC. C lias gen- 
erally its soft sound before e, i, and y. 

8. The unaccented termination ah so frequent in Hebrew proper 
naiucs. is pronounced like a in far; also when accented, in other 
situations, as Tah'-e-ra, Tah'-pe-nes, fyc, and the final h preserves 
the other vowels open, as Col-ho'-zeh, Shi'-loh ; pronounced Col-ho'- 
zee, Shi'-lo. 

9. The dipthong ci is always pronounced like ec, thus, Sa'-mci- 
us, is pronounced as if written Sa-mes'-us. 

10. Gentiles, as they are called, ending in ines and iles, as Philis- 
tines, Iiivit.es, Ilittites, fyc, being anglicised in the translation of 
the Bible, are pronounced like formations of our own, as Florentines, 
Whitfie.dUcs, Durhamites. 

Note I. — When a word is succeeded by a word p-inted in Italic?, this latter 
word is merely to spell the former as it ought to be pronounced. Thus As'cfa 
is the true pronunciation of the preceding word Ac'i-pha, and so of the rest. 

Note II. — Deeming' it unnecessary to give the whole of the Scripture Proper 
Names, we have selected all the most difficult ones, and trust uo inconvenience 
will tiric-n <"-^.~ .i-„ . — : — :~- r.c ,u. — ^ .i,„, „ vr > mmnarativelv easv.

Notices of Gouinlock's Geography. 

" This system of General Geography is adapted to the interrogative mode of 
tuition, embracing also the outlines of an elementary course. Scripture Geo- 
graphy, an introduction to Astronomy, and problems on maps and the globes. 
It also contains what has heretofore been a desideratum in all our geographies, 
about eight pages on British America, and appears altogether a very creditable 
publication, both to the authors and to the publishers." — Examiner. 

" The plan of this very useful work is admirably suitable to the purpose for 
which it is designed, and the execution appears highly satisfactory. We re. 
commend it to the attention of all engaged in the management of schools, in the 
full expectation to see it become one of the class books of Canada." — Niagara 
Chronicle. 

" Its plan i3 simple and well arranged, and the work is very comprehensive. 
As a general reference book it is valuable, as it gives the chief statistical fea- 
tures of every country on the globe." — Toronto Mirror. 

" A good compilation, with the addition of much Canadian matter. Tha 
Press throughout the province speaks in very laudatory terms regarding this 
useful publication. We wish it an extensive sale, which, indeed, its intrinsic 
merit deserves." — Hamilton Journal. 

" A compilation very well adapted for the use of our provincial schools. A 
few pages devoted to British America have been judiciously introduced into it." — 
Biitish Canadian. 

Extract of a Letter from the Rev. R. H. Thornton, Superintendent of Ed- 
ucation for the Township of Whitby, to Mr. Scobie ; 

" I have carefully examined G. & J. Gouinlock's Geography, lately pub- 
lished by you, and am happy to find it a valuable compendium of geography, 
both because of the information it contains and of its adaptation to the common 
schools of the province. The arrangement of the work is good, and such as, 
with the exercises, will almost of necessity lead a teacher, of even small expe- 
rience, to adopt a tolerably correct method of teaching its contents. 

" The mode adopted by the compilers, to give assistance towards a correct 
pronunciation of the proper names, is simple, and will be highly valued by 
many whose opportunities of acquiring accuracy in their pronunciation have 
been limited. 

" The value of the work, as a text book for schools, is, I conceive, greatly 
enhanced by the Outline of Scripture Geography. Something of the kind is 
essential wherever the Scriptures are employed as a reading book; and this 
work supplies what i have heard many wish to obtain, as an aid to their gen- 
eral perusal of the sacred volume." 

" This little work embraces a great deal of useful information for schools 
and we take the opportunity of recommending it to the notice of school com- 
missioners and teachers. — Kingston Chronicle §■ Gazette. 



Notices of Gouinlock's Arithmetic. 



" Formerly, our fellow subjects were wont to condemn works of this kind, 
either because they were too much adapted to the currency of the Mother 
Country, or that of the neighbouring Rebublic, but in the work before us such a 
happy union of both is maintained by the authors as to demand for it the best 
attention of the Canadian public." — London Inquirer. 

<« It is truly a practicle system, and we think very properly avoids mixing up 
the philosophy with the practice of arithmetic, which has been too much the 
custom since Sir John Lesslie published his celebrated work upon the subject. 
Speculations which we have heard the learned professor descant upon to his 
advanced classes at the University, we think he would have joined us in deem- 
ing unfit for beginners, and merely throwing impediments in their way. While 
Messrs. Gouinlock have confined themselves to the practice, their treatise is as 
comprehensive as any that we have seen, and well calculated to give the learn- 
er a thorough insight into the science in all its branches. We can confident- 
ly recommend it for the use of schools." — Conservative. 

" For the arrangement of the system, the gradation from the easy examples 
to the more difficult under each rule, and the simple and intelligible language 
in which the rules themselves are expressed, it deserves the highest praise — 
simplicity and perspicuity being the characteristic features of every page. In 
every respect we can honestly recommend it as a class book, which will not 
suffer by comparison with the best school arithmetics in Great Britain, and it 
has several advantages over them for Canadian schools." — British Colonist. 

" This is the best system of arithmetic that has ever emanated from the Ca- 
nadian press, and which every British teacher in this colony should hail as a 
grand desideratum. If twenty. seven years' experience as a public and private 
teacher should in any way, make me competent to judge, I pronounce it the 
best arithmetic in British North America, and think the authors have conferred 
a boon upon the Canadian public." — G. Sunley. 

" It contains much information of practicle utility, not to be met with in sim- 
ilar publications. The materials are well chosen and judiciously arranged. I 
consider it a work of much merit, and particularly well adapted to the instruc- 
tion of pupils designed for commercial pursuits in this province." — Wm. Jenkins. 

" From the number, variety, and selection of the sums, as well as the much 
needed introduction of the different kinds of current money, and the whole ar- 
rangement of the system, it is my opinion that the authors have conferred a sig- 
nal benefit upon the community, and merit the approbation and encouragement 
of teachers and pupils throughout the province." — Thos. Brown. 

" After a careful examination of G. & J. Gouinlock's Arithmetic, I have 
the satisfaction of saying that it has, in my view, been excecuted with ability and 
success. The definitions and rules are simple, perspicuous, and judicious ; and 
the exercises numerous, suitable, and of practicle utility. In treating the Rule 
of Proportion, great professional skill and discrimination are evinced, by the se- 
lection of the only method of stating the questions that is adapted to supersede 
the intricate Doctrine of Ratios ; to solve all exercises in that rule, whether direct 
or inverse, simple or compound ; and to present the anology or statement, with 
mathematical clearness and consistency. The difficult doctrine of Vulgar and 



Notices of Gouinlock's Geography. 

Extracts of a Letter from Mr. P. Thornton, Superintendent of Schools, 
Hamilton, to Mr. Scobie : 

" I have examined the Geography which you have just published, and have 
no hesitation in saying that, as a Canadian S:hool Geography, it is far supe- 
rior to any that lias hitherto been offered to the public. The Scripture Geogra- 
phy is a feature which greatly enhances it3 value in schools where the sacred 
scriptures are perused, and ought to be a strong recommendation in its favour." 
" This work, of which we highly approve, certainly contains a great quantity 
of topographical and statistical information, most useful to all who desire to 
make the science of geography an object of study. The details regarding the 
British Possessions on this continent, are very ample, and such as should be 
in the possession of every well-regulated school in the province. — Brockv'lle 
Stasesman. 

" This work is obviously the result of a great deal of patient labour and 
persevering attention ; its arrangement is simple, progressive, and compendious. 
We remark with pleasure that the imparting of the proper pronunciation of 
names is attended to ; and we cordially commend it to the attention of teachers, 
and this we do the more confidently, as we understand the authors are teach- 
ers of long experience and extensive practice themselves, and therefore may 
be presumed to be competent judges of what is required to facilitate the 
progress of learners in this or any particular branch of knowledge which may 
occupy their attention and engage their pens." — Montreal Gazette. 

" The good opinion formed from the title, is not disappointed on an examination 
of the work. So great an amount of useful information is not often presented in 
as small a compass, or more interesting shape. We shall keep it by us aa a 
useful book of reference." — St. Catharines Journal. 

" It is admirably adapted for the use of British American schools ; the design 
of the work is excellent, and most ably has the design been carried out by the 
authors, who deserve the thanks of the public of the British provinces." — 
Woodstock Herald. 

We have much pleasure in stating that Messrs. G. & J. Gouinlock, who 
were so very successful in the completion of one of the best arithmetics extant, 
are in this instance also entitled to the gratitude of the Canadian public, for 
such an excellent manual of geography as the one before us, which we consider 
to be a desideratum in our provincial schools." — Brantford Courier. 

We have been favored with a copy of this excellent work, by the pub- 
lisher, Mr Scobie of Toronto, which for its comprehensive information and 
judicious arrangement, is perhaps unequalled ; and shows an originality of de- 
sign not before attempted on this continent, but which the authors seem to have 
conceived with judgment and maturely and satisfactory accomplished." — 
London Times. 



Notices of the 1st Edition of Gouinlock's Arithmetic. 

" A work which we make no doubt will have an extensive circulation through- 
out the Colonies. It is a pleasing circumstance to see a work of such merit 
issuing from the press of Canada." — Hamilton Gazette. 



Notices of Gouinlock's Arithmetic. 



Decimal Fractions is explained in a masterly manner ; the subject of Exchang 
includes the currency of this country, and those of the United States ; the funda. 
mental and more useful rules of Mensuration are well illustrated and explained ; 
and the part on Book Keeping by Single Entry, contains a set of books of unu- 
sual simplicity, adapted to the retail business of this country, and extended 
through the period of a whole year. — James Thorn. 



O* A Key to this Arithmetic has been lately published by G. & J. Gouin- 
lock, in which they have keyed all the longest questions, to enable the teacher 
readily to detect errors in the pupils' operations : and all the most difficult ones, 
to assist the private student in their solution, which perhaps he could not other, 
wise solve without the aid of a master.
