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 marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

FEW subjects have of* late yeai^ more employed the pens of ererv class of crltjcks, 
than the impFovement of the English Language. The greatest abifjties in tiie nation 
have been ^lefted in cultivating and reforming it ; nor have a thousand minor crit- 
*cks been wantinr to add their mite of amendment to their native toneue. Jolinson, 
4rbo5te l^ge mind and lust taste made him capable of enriching and adorning the 
LanguagWj^th original composition, has condescended to the cjrudg^ery ol disentaiig* 
linffy ezplaimng, and arranging it, and left a lasting monument of his abilityi labour, 
and patience ; and Dr. Lowth, the politest scholar of the age, has veiled his superiori- 
tj in his short Introduction to Enelish Grammar. The ponderous folio has vindica- 
led the rights of analogy ; and the nght ephemeral sheet or news has corrected ei rours 
in Grammar, as well as in politicks, by slyly marking them in Italicks. 

Nor has the improvement stopped here. While Johnson and Lowth have been \tu 
sensibly operating on the orthography^ and construction of our Language, its pronun* 
dation has not been neglected. The importance of a consistent and regular pronua 
dation was too obvious to be overlooked ; and the want of this consistency and regu 
iarit^ has induced several ingenious men to endeavour at a reformation ; who, bv ex- 
hibiting the regularities of pronunciation, aiid pointing out its analogies, have reclaim- 
ed some words thai were not irrecoverably fixed in a wrong sound, and prevented otb' 
ert from being perverted t»y ignorance or caprice. 

Amone those writers who deserve the first praise on this subject, is Mr. Elphinston ; 
who, iu His principles of the English Language, has reduced the chaos to a system * 
and, by a deep investigation of the analogic of our tongue, has laid the foundation 
of a just and regular pronunciation. 

After him. Dr. Kenrick contributed a portion of^mprov«>ment by his Rhetorical 
Diaionary ; in which the words are divided into syllables as they are pronounced, ana 
figures placed over the vowels, to indicate the different sounds. But this gentleman 
has rendered his Dictionary extremely imperfect, by entirely omitting a great num- 
ber of words of doubtful and difficult pronunciation — those Very words lor which a 
Dictionary of this kind would be most consulted. 

To him succeeded Mr. Sheridan, who not only divided the words uito syllables, ana 

g laced figures over the vowels, as Dr. Kenrick nad done, but, by spelling the^e sjrlla- 
ies as they are pronounced, seemed to complete the idea of a Pronouncing Diction- 
ary, and to leave but little expectation of future improvement. It must, indeed, be 
confessed, that Mr. Sheridan^s Dictionary is greatly superiour to ever^ other that pre- 
ceded it ; and his method of conveying the sound of words, by spelhng them as tfiey 
are pionounced, is highly rational and useful. — But here sincerity obliges me to stop 
Numerous instances of impropriety, inconsistency, and want of acquaintance with the 
analosies of the Language, sufficiently show that his Dictionary is apon the whole 
impeirect, and that ample room was.left for attempting another, which might better 
answer the purpose of a Guide to Pronunciation. 

The last writer on this subject is Mr. Nares, who, in his Elements of OrthOen^, has 
shown a clearness of method and an extent of observation which deserve the highest 
encomiums. His Preface alcne proves hiui an elegant writer, as well as a philosophi- 
cal observer of Language ; and his Alphabetical Index, referring near five thouMuid 
words to the rules for pronouncing them, is a new and useful method of treating the 
sabject ; b«it he seems on many occasions, to have mistaken the best usage, and to 
have paid too little attention to the first principles of pronunciation. 

Thus I have ventured^to pre my opinion of my rivals and competitors* and I hope 
without envy or self-C4^ceit. Perhaps it would have been policy in me to have been 
silent on this head, for fear of putting the public i'l mind that oth*'V8 have written on 
the sabject as well as n^vself : but this is a narrow policy, whichtjnder the colour of

tenderness to others, is calculated to raise ourselves at tbciv expense. A writer who 
is conscious he deserves the attention of the public, (and unless he is thus conscioaa he 
ought not to wnte) must not only wish to be compared with those who have gone be 
fore him, but will promote the comparison, by iivforming his readers what others have 
done, and on what he founds his pretensions to a preference ; and if this be done with 
fairness and without acrimony, it can be no more mcousistent with modesty, than it is 
with honesty and plain dealing. 

The work 1 liuve offered on the subject has, I hope, added something to the public 
stock : as 1 have endeavoured to unite the science of Mr. Elphinston, the method of 
Mr. Nares, and the general utility of Mr. Sheridan. ' 

as he must have omitted merely by mistake, as Predilectionj Respectabl€f Descriptive 
S**lkyf Inimical J l/Uerfereficej And mkny others, are neither in Mr. Sheridan*s, Dr. Keu- 
rick's, nor several other Dictionaries. /

this word should be pronounced in four

the second ; or in three, as if divided 
into an-ti'PodeSf with the accent on the

abodes. To solve the difficulty, it must 
be observed that the word is pure Latin; 
and that when we adopt such words into 
our own language, we seldom alter the 
accent. The sin^gular of this word is not
