Author of " The Critical Pronouncing Dictionary" 
Revised and Enlarged 





Printed by Cowan & Co., Limit**. 


JOHN WALKER, whose name is familiar to every student 
of the orthoepy of the English language, published his 
Miyming Dictionary in 1775, twenty years alter the pub- 
lication of Johnson's Dictionary of the EHL- 
guage, and sixteen before the appearance of his own 
Critical Pronouncing Dictionary. A second edition, 
however, was not required till 1806, and, as Walker had 
been an Actor before he became a Teacher of Elocution 
in London, he naturally dc his work to David 

Garrick, to whose pronunciation on the stage, and fre- 
quent advice in the prosecution of his inquiries, he 
gratefully acknowledges his obligations for no small 
measure of whatever merit his work might posses. \NV 
have not had an opportunity of ascertaining the dates 
of all the subsequent editions ; bt3 we believe the last 
was printed in 1851. 

Walker certainly had the merit of first producing a 
of this sort in the English language on such an 
extensive scale; for the work of Bysshe to which he 
refers, and of which the fourth edition was printed in 
1710, extends to only thirty-six pages, on each of which 
are four columns of words without accent or explana- 
tion, which amount to a number between six and seven 
thousand, whereas the present work may claim the title 
of a sufficient dictionary of the language. 

A Jihyming Dictionary, properly so called, ought to 
hrinrr together all those words that have the same ter- 
minal sound, although they may not end in the same 
letters ; but such a collocation would have complicated 
the difficulty of finding a particular word and excluded 
some of the other advantages which the present arrange- 
ment affords. Hence words that are brought toL r 
on account of the similarity of their spelling, such a 


bread and lead, refuse to rhyme with one another; whilst 
words that are closely connected both by rhyme and 
reason, as lamb and dam, are, on account of their final 
letters, put far asunder ; but, to compensate this slight 
inconvenience, an Appendix has been constructed, in 
which terminations similar in sound, although not in 
orthography, have been brought into one view, and 
numerous examples given of the practice of many of our 
classical poets. 

In superintending the present edition in its passage 
through the press, we have omitted the repetition of 
those words that, in our Author's day, were beginning 
to drop the final k when preceded by c ; we have altered 
the place of the accent in some words in conformity to 
present usage, but in others, concerning which there is 
a diversity of opinion, we have left the accent un- 
touched, as indicating Walker's decision ; and in many 
instances we have improved the definitions of words and 
increased the number of synonymous terms, as far as 
the limits of a line would allow. .After the lapse of so 
many years, it would readily occur to any one, that not 
a few words would require to be added, in order to keep 
pace with the progress of our language ; nearly eighteen 
hundred words have accordingly been incorporated with 
the work. It is interesting to note the progress of 
scientific pursuits in the additions that have been made 
under the termination ology ; while fhe fact that the 
number of words ending in u has been doubled shews 
the increase of our commercial intercourse with foreign 
lands. With regard to the ingenious Appendix, exhi- 
biting Perfect, nearly perfect, and allowable rhymes, had 
we been producing a new work instead of a new edition 
of a work of the former century, all that refers to allow- 
able rhymes would certainly have been cancelled, as no 
longer tolerable to a poetic ear ; and it is certainly some- 
what remarkable that our Author has taken no notice of 
the circumstance, that these imperfect rhymes generally 
result from the erroneous pronunciation which, in the 
Introduction to his Critical Dictionary, he had indicated 
as peculiar to Ireland, and that most of his examples of 
these allowable rhymes have accordingly \>een derived 
the poems of Parnell. 


In his Introduction, our Author has ingeniously 
pointed out the various uses to which this Dictionary 
might be applied ; the information, as to the structure 
of our language, that might be derived from the juxta- 
position of words of similar terminations, and the cor- 
rect pronunciation of one word as rhyming with another ; 
but singularly enough he appears to have been some- 
what ashamed of the use to which the very title of the 
work would naturally suggest its application. Whether 
the Rhyming Dictionary forms an indispensable part of 
the apparatus of the writing desk of the English poet, 
we have no means of ascertaining; but, if any good 
effect is produced by the composition of "nonsense 
verses " in our Latin seminaries, we are persuaded that 
no small benefit would result from the practice of com- 
posing sense verses in our English schools ; an ear for the 
pleasing rhythmus of the language would be cultivated, if 
not produced; the proper accentuation ef the words 
would be fixed in the memory ; the correct sound of the 
vowels in the rhymes would be learned ; the discern- 
ment of nearly synonymous words would be forced on 
the attention, and the pupil's vocabulary would neces- 
sarily be greatly increased from the obligation that the 
measure of the verse would lay upon him to try several 
words before he could find one that would suit its place ; 
not to speak of the due cultivation of the imagination, 
the elevation of the mind, and the refinement of the 

Under the impression that the present work is admir- 
ably calculated to afford assistance in promoting these 
important ends, we shall offer a few facts and obser- 
vations on verse, alliteration, assonance, and rhyme, pre- 
mising that the limits to which we are restricted prevent 
our doing justice to a very interesting investigation. 

The subject to which these remarks will be confined 
does not impose on us the necessity of attempting to 
define either genius or poetry. Both the Greek and 
Scottish designation of a poet implies the belief that he 
is a creator, in contradistinction to the man of science, 
who is e-n investigator, and to the historian, who is a 
recorder. Verse is the form or habit in which a poem 
is generally, although not necessarily, presented to the 


hearer or reader ; and it is to the peculiarities and orna- 
ments of this outward habit we would briefly invite 

A little consideration will lead to the conclusion, that 
verse, in most languages, di'^ers from prose in the return 
of a certain number of syllables that have a peculiar 
relation to one another as accented and unaccented, or as 
long and short. It is universally felt that a degree of 
pleasure arises from this definite arrangement, and the 
origin of that pleasure is to be traced back to the sense 
of time with which men are generally endowed. It is 
this principle that regulates the step of a man, or the 
stroke of an oar ; and hence the pleasure we experience 
in beholding the regular step of a company of soldiers 
in their march, and the simultaneous sweep of the oars 
of a well-manned boat. The time of music, apart from 
tune, is evidently related to the movement to which we 
have now referred, and can accordingly be regulated by 
the properly measured, though monotonous, sound of 
the drum. The tendency to beat time with the " light 
fantastic toe" in the " giddy dance," is universally felt, 
and is found to be irresistible, even in the mere spec- 
tators. The next process was to bring language into 
conformity with the music thus produced, and the result 
was verse a measured or metrical line. As these 
results, therefore, flow from innate principles of our 
constitution, so, in looking as far back along the history 
of man as our materials enable us, we find him accom- 
panied with music and verse ; for the rude cadence of 
his song or the movement of his dance is ever accom- 
panied by the tap of the drum. 

In the Bible, the most ancient of records, we find 
man, at a very early period, forming both wind and 
stringed instruments, modulating his speech into verse, 
and exhibiting in the very earliest instance on record 
that peculiar parallelism that characterised the Hebrew 
poetry of all subsequent ages. 

When we look to language, we shall find that the 
words suggestive of persons, animals, things, and actions? 
are the most important ; other words do little more than 
connect these principal words or point out their quali- 
ties and relations. These ^ords, therefore, especially ID 


public speaking, would either be pronounced with 
greater force, or lengthened in the pronunciation, that the 
meaning of the speaker might be the more clearly appre- 
hended, or understood at a greater distance. This natu- 
rally suggests the words in. a sentence on which the 
emphasis would be placed, and the obvious reason for 
employing such emphasis What was thus true of a 
sentence would in process of time become true of a single 
word; for the noun .would have modifying syllabled 
united to it, in order to shew its gender, number, and 
relation to other words; and the verb would have mo&i- 
fications made on it to indicate the persons acting tmd 
the time of the action; but it would naturally oc<ur, 
that the primary word on which these modification; 
been made, especially if a monosyllable, would be indi- 
cated by pronouncing it with greater force or length than 
the modifying syllables, and hence the natural origin and 
place of the accent of a word. In such a collocation of 
words as forms a sentence, it would rarely happen that 
the emphatical words or accented syllables would unin- 
tentionally succeed one another in such a regular order 
as would arrest the attention, and gratify the ear by the 
perception of uniformity in their recurrence. But, as 
already observed, it had been early discovered that there 
some, who, through a peculiarly keen perception of 
such measured sentences and the possession of a copious 
vocabulary from which to draw their materials, could 
produce those measured sentences more readily and 
pleasantly than others ; and such persons, partly from j 
the pleasure they afforded their hearers, and partly from 
lief that they had received this peculiar gift directly 
from a supernatural source, would be highly esteemed 
and distinguished among their fellow-men. 

Syllables thus resolve themselves into emphatical or 
strong, and nnemphatical or weak ; or long and short, 
as they have otherwise been named. Referring once 
more to marching, or beating time with the foot, we 
may suppose an important word to be uttered at the 
putting down of each foot ; hence two accented or long 
syllables for a measure; or the first syllable may be 
strong and the next weak, and so on alternately; or the 
first syllable may be weak and the second strong, and 


this order may be preserved thronghoat: bnt 
modifications may yet be made, by pronon 
feeblo syllables at one step and one emphatical s\ 
at the ne.\ o may pronounce an empl: 

syllable at the first step and this may be followed by 

- ; and hence the pleasure the ear d 
from snob a regularly-returning combination of syllables.

hand are the deep plaow of t 
The ttrenfth of the hills IB Hia atoo 


The tea U His, and He made it, 
And Hia handj formed the dry land." 

Here we cannot fail to see how " the depths of the earth*' 
are contrasted with " the height of the hills ;" an. : 
are represented as His possessions ; while " the sea" is 
contrasted with "the land," and both assigned to His 
creative power. The following example from the 
fourth chapter of Isaiah will also forcibly illustrate this 
peculiarity : 

" For I wfll poor rfcr upon him that is thiniy 
And /**. upon the *y ground; 

1 pour my tptrit upon thy t*d, 
And my Mtmimj upon thine 0/ipny." 

Here the parallelism between water and floods, thirtty 
>y, in the first distich, and spirit and olestvng, teed 
and offspring in the second, is at once apparent ; ai 
knowledge of this principle is not without its use in as- 
certaining the meaning of certain expressions, a.- 
.at the parallel words in the above quo' 
are also synonymous, and thus, when the Saviour is said 
to have poured His Wetting upon the infants that were 
brought to Him for that purpose, His action was tant- 
amount to pouring Hit spirit upon their souls. 

Some have endeavoured to shew that such metrical 
construction as we find in the poetry of the Greeks and 
Romans, may be detected also in that of the Hebrews ; 

iis has been strenuously cent: 

In passing, therefore, from the sacred to the profane, we 
not only enter a new field of thought, but we also per- 

a new mode of cultivation; and the Christian, 

he has derived the seeds of truth from the Jew, 
has chosen to cultivate them after the man: 
the ( ; e the necessity of our making a few 

remarks on the principle of the construction of Greek 
and Latin verse. Those who have treated this subject 
have been led to poi distinction between quantity 

Lad accent, affirming that the former regulated the versi- 

'U of ancient, and tbg latter that of modern ^ m ^l 
We humbly conceive that quantity and accent are found 
in the compositions of both periods ; but that the former 
were more distinguished by the quan tables, not 


neglecting the accent, and that the latter are more de- 
pendent on accent, not however, neglecting quantity. 
Syllables among the ancients were considered as either 
long or short, according to the length of time with which 
they were respectively pronounced ; among the moderns, 
as accented or unaccented, according to the force with 
which they are respectively pronounced. Two syllables, 
accordingly, in sequence, may either be both long or both 
short ; or the one may be long and the other short, or 
the one may be short and the other long ; or to express 
the same ideas by signs ; two syllables may be thus ar- 
ranged, , or spondee ; ^ ^, or dibrach ; ^, or 

trochee ; and ' ' , or iamb ; and all these arrangements 
occur in English poetry ; but we shall only represent the 
two arrangements of three syllables that occur in our 
verse, ^ ^ , or anapest, and ^ N ', or dactyl. 
Each of those arrangements is called a foot, metre, or 
measure, and the verse derives its peculiar name from 
the foot that most abounds in it. Among both the 
Greeks and the Romans the noblest combination of these 
metres is called the heroic, from its being generally em- 
ployed to celebrate the deeds of their gods and heroes, 
as in the celebrated works of Homer and Virgil. We 
shall briefly direct attention to this species'of verse, on 
account of the influence that it has so long exerted on 
the productions of subsequent bards. It consisted of six 
of these feet, and hence was called hexameter. Gene- 
rally speaking, the last foot must be a spondee, and the 
preceding a dactyl ; each of the other four might be in- 
discriminately either a dactyl or a spondee. Hence the 
number of syllables might vary from thirteen to seven- 
teen ; but much taste and ingenuity might be displayed 
in the choice of the optional or arbitrary feet in order to 
render the " sound an echo to the sense," as the spondee 
was suited to a slow and solemn movement, and the 
dactyl to a quick and lively one. In elegiac verse, an 
hexameter line alternated with a pentameter, and it is 
probably from this that we have derived an heroic verse 
which is pentameter, and, as the iamb is the prevailing 
foot, it is specifically termed iambic. As the verse is 
therefore pentameter a.nd iambic, it necessarily consists 
of ten syllables. Like the hexameter, its last foot is 


fixed, and must be a true iamb, but any of the other 
places may be occupied either with a spondee, dibrach, 
or trochee. 

For heroic, narrative, and didactic subjects, this verse 
has long been employed. It is allowed to be of native 
origin, and Chaucer, the father of English poetry, has 
generally been accorded the honour of its invention. 
In its loftiest forms, it is written as blank verse, as in 
Milton's Paradise Lost and Regained and Young's Night 
Thoughts ; or as rhyming couplets, as in the works of 
Chaucer, Dryden, Pope, Campbell, Crabbe, Mont- 
gomery, and many others. In Chaucer, it is compara- 
tively harsh to our ear; but it acquired strength in 
Denham, sweetness in Waller, a combination of these 
in Dryden, and, perhaps, perfection in Pope. 

Let us read the following example from the Canterbury 
Tales : 

" A. good man was ther of religioun, 
And was a pore Persoun of a toun ; 
But riche he was of holy thought and worfc 
He was also a lerned man, a clerk 
That Cristes gospel gladly wolde preche ; 
His parischena devoutly wolde he teche.- - 
Wyd was his parisch, and houses fer asondnr, 
But he ne lafte not for reyne ne tnondur, 
3n siknesse ne in meschief to visite 
The ferrest in his parissche, moche and lite, 
Uppon his feet, and in his bond a staf . 
This nohle ensample unto his scheep he gaf, 
But ferst he wroughte, and after that he taughte," Ac. 

Here will immediately be felt, the want of the stately 
march and harmonious roll of the heroic verse of the 
present day. On examining the passage, this will be 
found to arise from an apparent defect or superfluity oi 
syllables ; thus two syllables are apparently wanting in 
the fifth line, but by making "Christes" and "wolde" dis- 
syllables, we shall find the verse complete ; on the other 
hand, the twelfth line seems to have two superfluous 
syllables ; but by eliding the final e of " noble" and " en- 
sample," or making the termination of these words glide 
into the beginning of those that follow, we shall get rid of 
those redundant syllables, and reduce the line to its 
r\roper dimensions. Let it be remembered, howeve^- 


that Chancer was not so fastidious as his successors bo 
came, and Dry den had consequently reason to say : 
" It were an easy matter to produce some thousands of 
his verses, which are lame for want of half a foot, and 
sometimes a whole one, and which no pronunciation can 
make otherwise. We can only say that he lived in the 
infancy of our poetry, and that nothing is brought to 
perfection at first." It is difficult, from the very abun- 
dance, to select a passage that might prove the harmony 
and strength of this verse in modern times ; for the 
exact prosody and pure rhymes of the Pleasures oj 
Memory or of Hope, present such examples on every 
page. We shall submit the following : 

44 Unfading HOPB ! when life's last embers burn, 
Then soul to soul, and dust to dust return ! 
Heaven to thy charge resigns the awful hour ! 
Oh ! then, thy kingdom conies ! Immortal Power I 
What though each spark of earth-born rapture fly 
The quivering lip, pale cheek, and closing eye ! 
Bright to the soul thy seraph hands convey 
The morning dream of life's eternal day 
Then, then, the triumph and the trance begin, 
And all the phoenix spirit burns within." 

The noblest and most difficult species of this verse is 
th;it which has been called blank, on account of its want- 
ing rhyme. To elevate it, therefore, above prose, into 
which it is apt to run in unskilful or careless hands, 
great attention must be given to its rhythm and pauses, 
apart from the elevation of those sentiments of which it 
may be considered the appropriate vehicle. Marlowe, 
the greatest of Shakspeare's predecessors, found the 
drama shackled by rhyming couplets. Some were then 
beginning to throw off this restraint, but the sense as 
formerly still terminated with the line, which led Nash 
to characterise it as " the spacious volubility of a drum- 
ming decasyllabon." It was therefore reserved for the 
genius of Marlowe to break up this monotonous unifor- 
mity, and to introduce into his blank verse those various 
pauses that were afterwards to be managed with such 
consummate art in the harmonious and varied construc- 
tion of the great Epic of Milton, that will ever afford the 
proper school for the study of the perfection of the English 
heroic. A critic, in condemning the opinion that the pause 


may occur after any syllable in the line, asserts that thia 
is equivalent to saying that there is no place at all for the 
pause. Now, had he examined Milton's lines, he would 
have found instances of the pause after each syllable ; 
but he would have found that its occurrence after the 
first and ninth was rare, and that its place occurred 
more frequently and agreeably after the fourth, sixth, 
and eighth syllables the places which the ear had be- 
fore assigned to them in our lyric poems. When the 
pause occurs after the odd syllables, which are unac- 
cented, the effect is not unpleasant, but the close is 
deficient in power. In such passages as the following, 
we mark in the first line the pause near the beginning, 
then receding farther in the next, till the fall close is 
found at the end of the sixth lino. 

u To nourish, | and superfluous moist consumes ; 
Uut I will haste, | and from each bough and brake, 
Each plant and juciest gourd, | will pluck such choice 
To entertain our angel guest,! as ho 
Beholding shall confess, that here, on Earth, 
God hath dispensed his bounties at in Hea 

Other examples could be given in which the pause ia 
near the end of the first line, more remote in the next, 
and so on till it approaches the beginning and then be- 
gins again to retire farther into the line ; but our space 

The heroic verse is sometimes formed into a quatrain 
with alternate rhymes; which, from its employment, 
has been called the elegiac stanza. Drvden considered 
this the noblest species of versification that our language 
possesses, but few have been of his opinion. It affords 
r variety than the couplet, and has a more sonorous 
melody and stately gait. It was in this measure that, 
he wrote his Annus Miralilis ; Shenstone wrote many 
elegies in it that are scarcely remembered, and Gray 
has written one that will never be forgotten. We give 
the following specimen as embodying sentiments that 
the Christian sadly misses in the Country Churchyard : 


M One place alone had ceased to hold its prey ; 

A form had pressed it, and was there no move, 
The garments of the grave beside it lav, 

Whcro onco they wrf.ppea Him on the rocky floor. 


* Ho only with returning footsteps broke 

The eternal calm wherewith the tomb was bound ; 
Among the sleeping dead alone he woke, 

And bless'd with outstretch'd hands the host around 

" W 11 is it that such blessing hovers here 

To soothe each sad survivor of the throng, 
NY ho haunt the portals of the solemn sphere, 
And pour their woe the loaded air along. 

* They to the verge have follow'd what they love, 

And on the insuperable threshold stand ; 
>Vith cherish'd names its speechless calm reprove, 
And stretch in the abyss their ungrasped h 

It has been supposed that we are indebted for our line 
of twelve syllables, commonly called Alexandrine verse, 
to the French, as that is the measure of their heroic 
poetry. After the Restoration, this verse was used in 
dramatic compositions, to gratify the taste of the king, 
whose ear had become familiarised to it during his 
sojourn in France. Dry den also frequently concluded 
a triplet with an Alexandrine in his heroic verse ; but 
as this suggests that the poet was either unable to pack 
the idea it contains into the previous couplet,, or was 
unable to find another idea to occupy another line, it 
has thus, either as an indication of negligence or barren- 
ness, been generally rejected. The most considerable 
poem in English that has been composed in this measure 
is Drayton's Polyollion, of which the following lines 
will afford a specimen : 

ii from her burnished gate the iroodly glittering East 
(illds every mountain-top, which late the humourous night 
mpled had with pearl, to jilense the n.orning'* sight; 
which the mirthful quires, with their clear open throat*. 
Into the joyful morn so strain their warbling notes, 
hills and valleys rintr, and even the echoing air 
:ns all composed of songs about them every where." 

The verse of fourteen syllables has also been employed 
in no less considerable a work than Chapman's trans- 
lation of Homer a work into which he has happily 
transfused not a little of the spirit of the original 
After a long interval, the suitableness of this measure to 
express heroic actions has been justified by its adoption 
by Lord Macaulay, in his Lays of Ancient Rome, al- 
though he has occasionally contracted or expanded the 


line by a syllable. We illnstrato by a few lines from 


"Right graciously he smiled on us, as rolled from wins; to wing, 

Down all our line a deafening shout, ' God save our lord the King," 

1 And if my standard-bearer fall, as fall full well he may 

For never saw I promise yet of such a bloody fray 

Press where ye see my whito plume shine, amidst the ranks of war, 

And be your oriflamme to-day, the helmet of Navarre.' " 

This is the greatest length to which our lines have been 
carried, and, in this respect, they bear a close resem- 
blance to the hexameter of the ancients. As the pause 
is uniformly at the end of the eighth syllable, it became 
convenient in printing to break the line into portions, 
and this forms the well-known stanza of our psalms and 
hymns, familiarly known as common measure. After the 
verse had been thus divided, a farther improvement waa 
made upon it by considering each portion as a distinct 
line, and then making the four lines rhyme alternately. 
This form may be seen in the following stanza : 

" Hope, like the glimmering taper's light, 
Adorns and cheers the way ; 

still, as darker grows the night, 
Emits a bright i 

On this point, Montgomery baa thus expressed his 
opinion : "It is a great temptation t<> the indolence of 
hv inn-writers, that the . measures have been so 

often used by Dr. Watte without rhyme in the first and 
third lines. He himself confessed ihat this was a de- 
fect ; and, though some of the most beautiful hymns are 
upon this model, if tho tin; he not a fault, it is 

the cause of half the faults that may be found in in- 
ferior compositions, negligence, feebleness, and pros- 
ing." Notwithstanding the justice of this remark, we 
observe that most of the Hymns in the Dean of Canter- 
bury's Poetical Works are in thi measure, and, 
still worse, some of them exhibit both styles inter- 
mixr 1. 

Another form is produced by bringing tho two long 
and tbo two short lines together ; thus : 

i- o'er the glowing west..rn main 
Uia wistful brow was upward niis'd, 
Where like an un. 

The burniah'd wal r blne'd." 


Another modification in this quatrain was formed by 
making all the verses octo-syllabic, which form is known 
nslong measure; thus : 

" Thy precious things whate'er they be, 

That haunt and vex thee, heart, and brain, 
Look to the Cross, and thou shalt see 
Eow thou mayst turn them all to gain." 

Another form of this stanza makes the four lines 
rhyme in couplets ; thus : 

" Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without thee I cannot live ; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die." 

Again, an alternate rhyming quatrain may be con- 
joined to one rhyming in couplets, when a stanza of tha 
following form is produced : 

" Thus in the dew of youth she shone, 

Thus in the morn of beauty fell ; 
Even while we gazed, the form was gone, 

The life became invisible ; 
The last best birth, with her last breath. 
Came in the dark disguise of death ; 
Grief fill'd hr-r parent's home of love, 
But joy her Father's house above." 

When the first and fourth, and second and third 
rhyme together, that form of verse is produced which 
Tennyson has rendered so familiar in his affecting It) 
Memoriam : 

" Sphere all your lights around, above ; 

p, gentle heavens, before the prow ; 
>. gentle winds as he sleeps now ; 
My friend, the brother of my love ; 

** My Arthur, whom I shall not soe 
Till all my widowed race be run ; 
Dear as the mother to the son, 
More than my brothers are to me." 

There is another form of stanza produced by doubling 
^LQ first and third lines ; thus : 

" When sorrow all our heart would ask, 
We need not shun our daily task, 

And hide ourselves for calm ; 
The herbs we seek to heal our woe 
Familiar by our pathway grow, 

Our common, ur is ba'm." 


Or by trebling them : 

" \V 11 nii^ht you guess what vision bright 
Was present to his raptur'd sight, 
Even us reflected streams of light 
Their solar source betray. 

The glory -which our GOD surrounds. 
The son of Man, th' atoning wounds- 
He sees them all ; and earth's dull bouada 
Are melting fast away." 

Wben the common measure stanza has the first line 
diminished by two syllables, it is then called s/iort ww*. 
ture ; thus : 

"The fountain in its source 

No draught of summer fears ; 
Thf> farther it pursues its comae, 
The nobler it appears." 

Another form of stanza is produced by adding a 
rhyming couplet to this < natr;i 

" Night is the time to pray ; 

Our Saviour oft with 
To desert mountains far away ; 

So will his followers do, 
Steal from the throng to haunts untioi, 
And commune there alone with God." 

Or thus : 

" But like a white swan down a troubled stream, 

Whose ruffling pinion hath the power to fling 
Aside the turbid drops which darkly gleam, 

And mar the freshness oi _:. 

So thou, with queenly grace and ger 
Along the world's dark waves in purity dost gl 

We find also, in the search for variety, that a mci 
of jive syllables has not been rejected : 

* Go not, happy day, 

From th; shining fields, 
Go not, happy day, 
Till tho maid. 

Rosy is the West, 

Rosy is the South, 
Roses are her cheeks 
And a rose her mouth." 

The descent from five toy -les, or two Iambic 

i-ings us to the shortest measaiv >otry. 


One could scarcely believe that eo ranch could bo packed 
into such narrow bounds as he will find in the following 

lines : 

" But I'll come in 
Before my 1< >ss 
Me farther toss, 
As sure to win 
Under Bis cross. 

"Sin, Death, and 11-11, 
His glorious name 
Quite overcame ; 
Yet I rebel, 
And slight the same.** 

We seem to have borrowed the tercet or triplet from 
the Italians, but in a less artificial style, as each tercet 
is independent of the other instead of having the rhymes 
of the adjoining stanzas interwoven. Milton seems to 
have imitated this measure in his rendering of the vii. 

M Let th' enemy pursue my soul, 
And overtake it, let him tread 
My life down to the earth, and roll 

41 In the dust my glory dead, 
In the dust and there outspread. 
Lodge it with dishonour foul." 

James Montgomery has written an account of a 
Voyage round the world in triplets, which he thus pa- 

" I have seen them one by one, 

t y shore beneath the sun, 

And my voyage now is done. 

" While I bid them all be bleat, 
Britain is my home, my rest; 

own land! I love thee best" 

But the most considerable poem in this stanza IR the 
remarkable Two Voices of the Poet Laureate, of which 
the concluding stanzas may be given as a specimen : 

And forth into the fields I went, 
And Nature's living motion lent 
The pulse of hope to discontent. 

" I wondered at the beauteous hours, 
The slow result of winter showers ; 
You scarce could see the grass for flowers. 


I wondered while I paced alon^ : 
The woods weie fill'd BO full of I 
There seem'd no room for sense of wrong. 

" So variously seem'd all things wrought, 
I marvell'd how the mind was brought, 
To anchor by one gloomy thought ; 

M And wherefore rather I made choice, 
To commune with that barren voice ; 
Than him that said, " Rejoic< : 

The Sonnet, as its name indicates, is also of Italian 
origin. It is composed in ten-syllable verse, and is con- 
fined to fourteen lines The first eight lines ha\ 
two rhymes, which, with the exception of the fir 
eighth, rhyme in pairs; the last six have likewise but 
two rhymes, bi. iiyme alternately. This d 

tion will be better understood by the following example, 
in which Hilton has strictly adhered to the Italian 
1 : 


" V. vur, 


<> do ::.". r.i!I. J !.:, which as from life doth sever. 

y works and alms, and all thy good endeavour 
Stay'd not behind, nor in the grave were trod ; 
But as faith pointed with her golden rod, 
Follow'd thee up to joy and bliss for ever. 

" Love led them on, and faith who 1 best 

Thy handmaids, clad them oYr with purple buuus 
And azure wings, that up they flew so drest , 
"And spake the truth of thee in glorious themes 

Before the Judge, who thenceforth bade thee rost 
And drink thy fill of pure immortal streams." 

i>v>wles revived the sonnet in modern times ; Words- 
Mill farther rendered it familiar, and no incon- 
siderable portion of the recently published volume of 
Alford consists of sonnets. All these, however, 
have deviated considerably from the model we have pre- 
scMited, in the arrangement of the rhymes. Perhaps 
the greatest departure consists in arranging the first 
twelve lines in three independent stanzas, in each of 
which the lines rhyme alternately, and concluding the 
whole by the last two lines in the> form of a rhyming 


couplet, in which a farther liberty has been taken, bm 
rarely, in making the last line an Alexandrine. The fol- 
lowing example is taken from the volume to which we 
have last alluded : 


" Welcome, stern Winter, though thy brows are bound 
With no fresh flowers, and ditties none thou hast 
But the wild music of the sweeping blast ; 
Welcome this chilly wind, that snatches round 
The brown leaves in quaint eddies ; we have long 
Panted in wearying heat ; skies always bright, 
And dull return of never-clouded light, 
S'.rt not with hearts that gather food for song, 
Kather, dear Winter, I would forth with thee, 
Watching thee disattire the earth ; and roam 
On th) Mi -;ik heaths stretch about my home, 
Till round the flat horizon I can 
The purple frost-belt ; then to fireside-chair, 
And sweetest labour of poetic < 

The Ottava rima, or, as it is called, in our prosody 
Spenserean stanza, is also of Italian growth, only modi- 
fied by Spenser's concluding it with an Alexandrine 
line, which gives it a broader basis, or a more majestic 
sweep. It is in this stanza that the bewitching Faeri* 

is described; Beattie revived it in his p< 
rd; Thomson employed it in his Castle of Indol- 
ence; Southey in his Tale of Paraguay; Campbell in 
his Gertrude of Wyoming ; Small in his Highlands; and 
its full powers were exhibited in the wanderings of the 
sublime and bitter Childe Harold. 

This stanza in its structure bears a close resemblance 
to the sonnet. It consists, however, of only nine lines; 
the first four rhyme alternately, the fifth uniformly takes 
up the rhyme of the fourth, and the concluding line 
rhymes with the preceding. An extract from ti. 
of these works will illustrate the structure of this noble 
stanza : 

" The sky is changed ! and such a change ! O ni^ht, 
And storm, and darkness, ye are wondrous strong, 
Y. t lovt-ly in your strength, as is the light 
Of a dark eye in woman ! Far along, 
From peak to peak, the rattling crags among 
Leaps the live thunder ! Not from one lone cloud, 
But every mountain now hath found a tongue, 
And Jura answers, through her misty shroud, 
Back to the joyous Alps, who call to her aloud 1 H 


The true Ottava rima, however, as used by Ariosto, 
presents six lines rhyming alternately, and two of the 
sumo length rhyming together at the close. 

The following stanza, from Rose's translation, exhibits 
this structure : 

" Let him make haste bis feet to disengage. 

Nor lime his wings whom love hath, made a prjzeV 

For love, in fine, is nought but frenzied r. i 
By universal suffrage of the wise r 

And albeit some may shew themselves more &a$pr 
Than Roland, they but sin in other guise. 

.Kor what proves folly more than on this &}. 

Thus for another to destroy one's B< . 

Octosyllabic verse, in which the lines rhyme in coup- 
lets, has been much used in narrative poetry from tin- 
time of Chaucer, who composed in it his House of Fame, 
which Pope, in heroic verse, has rendered so famous as 
the Temple of Fame. It requires great attention to 
counteract its " fatal facility " of leading to diffusion and 
ness. Much of the narrative portions of Sir Walter 
Scott's poetical romances is written in this style : 

"At length the freshening western blast 

>hroud of battle cast ; 
And, tir-t, tin.- ridge of mingled spears 
A!*- ^htening cloud appears ; 

And in the smoke the pennons flew, 
a the storm the white sea-mew, 
Then marked they, dashing broad and far, 
The broken billows of the war, 
And plumed crests of chieftains brave 
Floating like foam upon the v 

These may be considered the ]' . they are by no 

means all the forms, in which tho ingenuity of our poets 
has presented what may be considered our lyric 
lie quatrain. 

shall now briefly illustrate our other kinds of ver- 
sification. As the Iamb consists of a short and a long 
syllable, so the Trochee consists of a long and a short. 
Verses characterised by this foot are commonly of the 
lyric kind, and the accent on the first syllable gives the 

8 an abrupt and rapid manner. 

Locksley Hall is a pocin of considerable length in the 
trochaic measure : 


44 Not in vain the distance beacon* Forward, forward, lot ns 

Let the great world spin for ever down the ringing grooves of 


Through the shadow of the globe we sweep into the younger day ; 
Better fifty years in Europe than a cycle in Cathay." 

Poe's remarkable poem, Tlie Raven, is also composed in 
this measure, and in its structure shews a wonderful 
command of language regulated by a delicate sense of 
harmony : 
" Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and 


In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore. 
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped 01 

stayed he ; 

But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door 
IVrched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door 
Perched, and sat, and nothing more." 

Neither has it been considered unworthy of a place 
in our hymnology : 

" Pilgrim, burthen'd with thy sin, 
Come the wuy to Zion's gate, 
There, till mercy let thoo in, 

Knock and weep, and watch nrid wait 
" Knock ! He knows the sinner's cry : 

\V, rp ! He loves the mourner's tears : 
Watch ! for saving grace is nigh : 
\V ait! till heavenly light appears." 

Montgomery's Wanderer of Switzerland is also corn- 
posed in this measure : 

" Long before thy sun descend, 

May thy woes and wanderings cease ; 
Late and lovely be thine end ; 

Hope and triumph, joy and peace ! 
" As our lakes, at day's decline, 

Brighten thro' the gathering gloom, 
May thy latest moments shine 
Thro* the nightfall of the tomb." 

Various combinations of this verse, with the addition 
of two or more lines occur ; but it is unnecessary to 
multiply examples ; let the following suffice : 
'* Onward, onward may we press 

Through the path of duty ; 
Virtue is true happiness, 

Excellence, true beauty. 
Minds are of celestial birth ; 
Make we then a heaven of earth.' 


This verse is not unfrequently employed in those 
lyrical poems, called Anacreontic : 

Little inmate, full of mirth, 
Chirping on my kitchen he:irth, 

soe'er be thine abode, 
Always harbinger of good, 
Pay me for thy warm retreat 
With a song more soft and sweet; 
In return thou shall receive 
Such a strain as I can g 

Let 118 now close this form of line with a feminine 
syllable, or double ending ; that is, let the last word have 
the accent on the pennlt syllable, and we produce the 
measure in which Longfellow composed his Song of 
Hiawatha : 

" She was thinking of a hunter, 
From another tribe and country, 
Y<TOng~aml tall, and v ry hun.lsome, 

.o one morning, in the Spring-time 
Came to buy her lather's arrows, 

md rested in the wigwam, 
Lingered long about the door-way, 
Looking back as he departed." 

This verso may be compared to the seventh note in 
iQusic, which has been characteristically called the seek- 
ing note, as if the ear sought another note on which to 
rest, as a more satisfactory close. It has accordingly 
been alternated with a line ending in a male syllable, 
and thus is formed a quatrain which is frequently em- 
ployed in the minor poems of the German poets, as in 
Schiller's Pilgrim, Longing, Ac. ; and in which Longfel- 
low composed his sweet, but defective Psalm of Life : 

* Lives of great men all remind us 

We can make our lives sublime ; 
And, departing, leave behind us 

Footprints on the sands of time ; 
Footprints, that perhaps another , 

Sailing o'er life's solemn main, 
A forlorn and shipwreck'd broth IT, 

Seeing, shall Uko heart ag.uu." 

Tnere yet remains to be considered onr Anapesttc 
verse, in which the characteristic feet are composed of 
two short syllables and one long. One of the short 
syllables may be a wanting, in which case the line becrins 


n'ith an lamb, The lines are not confined to a certain 
number of feet, but lines either of three or four feet are 
the most common. From its general use, we might 
infer that it is best calculated for the expression of pen- 
sive subjects, as in Shenstone's Pastoral Ballad : 

" I have fou'nd) out a gift') for my fa'ir ; 

I have fou'nd | where the wo'od|-pigeons bre'cd; 
But let me the plunder forbear ; 
She will say 'twas a barbarous deed." 

Or in Beattie's Hermit : 

" At the clo'se| of the da'y,| when the ha'mjlet is still, 
And mo'r|tals the swee'tsj of forge'tj fulness pro've,| 
TVhrre nought but the torrent is heard on the hill, 
And nought but the nightingale's song in the grove." 

And yet, as if to shew the versatility of our metres, 
this very verse, in couplets, has been employed by Gold- 
smith in his Retaliation, by Anstey in his New 

, and by numerous imitators, in light satirical and 
humorous compositions : 

" If our la'nd|lord supplies | us with be'ef | and with fi'sh, | 
Let each guest bring himself, and ho brings the best dibh." 


Frequent attempts have been made to introduce 
some of the classical metres into English poetry, but the 
popular ear seems incapable of relishing them. To 
some of these attempts we shall briefly advert. The 
hexameter, which has been considered the noblest of the 
Greek and Roman measures, and which has been intro- 
duced into German versification, has been attempted by 
Southey, Longfellow, Alford, &c. When this verse is 
purely dactylic, with the necessary exception of the last 
foot, it has too much of the cadence of a horse at the 
canter, as in the hackneyed illustration 

" Quadrupedante putrem sonitu quatit nngula camptim; n 

This is the measure in which Longfellow has com- 
posed, and, as some think, spoiled his tales of Evange- 
line and the Courtship of Miles Standish; from the lattei 
we give the following illustration : 

THE EDI,. . .ACE. XX \T. 

" Dimly the | shadowy | form "of the | May-Flower | riding at \ 

Hocked on the rising tide, and ready to sail on the morrow ; 

i the voices of men through the mist, the rattle of cordage 
Thrown on the deck, the shouts of the mate, and the sailors' ' Ay, 

ay, Sir!' 

Clear and distinct, but not loud, in the dripping air of the twilight. 
Still for moment he stood, and listened and stared at the 
vessel," fcc. 

When a greater variety of feet is introduced and the 
peculiar dactylic cadence is lost, the verse seems so 
closely to resemble English prose, that the poetical 
rhythm is scarcely perceived, as in the following 
lines : 

. one cannot believe that, if North and South were to sever, 
Shivery could endure ten years in its present condi; 

Were these lines written without break, one would 
not readily perceive that they were intended to be 
al ; for they could be easily matched by quotations 
from the prose translation of the psalms ; thus : 

Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing P 

God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a 

Several excellent specimens of hexameters, with an 
ional slight alteration, might be found in Lord 
ulay's Essay on Dryden : 

" Who in a sea fight 
Thought of the price of tho china which beut out the brains of a 

sailor P" 

Dr Watts imitated the well-known Sapphic verse; 
out, as it nearly agrees with the rhythm of some of our 
ir songs, this association is certainly not calculated 
to tit it for serious poetry : 

" When the | fierce north | wind with his | Uxy^ forces', 
Rears up the Baltic to a foaming fury ; 
And the red lightning, with a storm of hail comet 

Rushing ajm&in down ; 

How the poor sailors stand umaz'd and tremble, 
While the hoarse thunder, like a bloody trumj 
Roars a loud onset to the t<aping waters, 

Quick to devour them." 


The rhythm of these verses will readily suffgp^t to 
the reader The Widow of Southey, and the Needy E 
Grinder of Canning. 

Tennyson, in his recent volume, has given a few 
specimens of " experiments" in other classical metres. 
The first, called Boadicea, is in Trochaic Tetrameter, 
which properly consists of eight trochees, but consider- 
able variations are admitted, of which our Laureate has 
availed himself, by frequently introducing- a dactyl in 
the sixth foot, and occasionally closing his line with a 
catalectic syllable : 

" Roar'd as | when the [ rolling | breakers | boom and | blanch on 

the | proci | pi 

Yell'd as when the winds of winter tear an oak on a promontory, 
80 the silent colony hearing her tumultuous adversaries." 

The second of his experiments is entitled Milton, and 
is composed in Horatian verse. The first two lines are 
r Alcaic ; the third line is Archilochian, and the 
fourth, less Alcaic. The nature of the feet will be per- 
ceived by the scansion su'iis which we have placed over 
one of the stanzas : 

" O Might|y-mouthM | in|ventor of | harmonies, 
O skill'd to sing of Time or Eternity, 

God-gift|ed origan-voice | of Eng|lon3, 

Milton, a | name to re|sound for | ages." 
The last of these "experiments" is in Phdlcecian, or 
casyllabic verse, forming a line of eleven syllables, 
disposed in the following feet, chiefly trochaic, although 
Catullus, to whom the Laureate refers, took certain 
liberties with the first and second : 

u Look, I | come to the | test, a | tiny | poem, 
All composed in a metre of Catullus." 

As the anapest consists of two short and one long 
syllable, so the dactyl consists of one long and two short. 
Of Dactylic Tetrameter or Alcmanian verse, the follow- 
ing specimen is from Southey's Soldier's Wife : 

'* We'ary way!-wand'erer,|lan'guid and | sick' at heart, 
Travelling painfully over the rugged road, 
Wild-visagcd YrVudcror, ah, for thy heavy chance! 


" Sorely thy little one drags by thee bare-footed, 
Cold is the baby that hangs by th/ bending back, 
Meagre and livid and screaming its wretchedness." 

These stanzas, even from the pen of Southey, prove 
the difficulty of writing in English dactyls ; for of these 
six lines, only two end with trne dactyls ; besides, as 
Robert Hall said on substituting pierce for penetrate, "no 
man who considered the force of the English language 
would use a word of three syllables" at the close of a 
sentence, " but from absolute necessity." This must 
have been felt by the ancients, who concluded the true 
dactylic tetrameter with a spondee and not a dactyl, and 
the following may therefore be considered a better illus- 
tration : 

" Whu't though you | toll me each | ga'y little | rover 
Shrinks from the breath of the first autumn day ; 
Surely 'tis better, when summer is over, 
To die when all fair things are fading away." 

Some prosodians, however, have considerered our ana- 
pestic verse as strictly a dactylic measure ; but we dis- 
sent from this deci 

Upon the publication of Coleridge's Chrislabel, he 
1 that it had been constructed upon a new prin- 
ciple ; that the number of syllables was not to be re- 
garded, but those syllables on which the emphasis fell. 
As these were four, so the number of syllables in a line 
might be but four ; but as two or three feeble syllables 
might be added to each of them, the number of syllables 
might extend to twelve, and yet the melody of the verse 
be preserved. It was astonishing that Coleridge should 
called such a principle as this new, seeing that, to 
a considerable extent, it was the very principle on which 
the classical hexameter had been constructed, of which 
he himself had given a description ami illustration, and 
that which is so conspicuous in our ancient ballads. 
This rhythmical, as opposed to numerous verse, has 
been extensively employed by many of our poets, as im- 
posing upon them less restraint than a more correct 
prosody would have required. 

Next to the harmonious arrangement of syllables in 


we may consider alliteration as a species of \ 
cal ornament. It is produced by a succession of words 
beginning with the same letter. It must have been intro- 
duced at a very early period, as we find it characterising 
no fewer than twelve poems in the Holy Scriptures. The 
number of the Hebrew letters, which is twenty-two, de- 
termined the length of these alliterative poems, of which 
each stanza begins with each letter in its alphabetical 
order. It is not necessary that we should describe the 
metrical structure of all these poems; and, as the alli- 

ve composition of the cxix. Psalm must be familiar 
to all. from the names of the letters being prefixed to 
each division of eight verses, we shall advert to the 
peculiarities that occur in the structure of the third 
chapter of the book of Lamentations. This poem con- 
B ists of twenty-two stanzas ; each stanza contains three 
lines, and the initial letter of every stanza is also the 
initial letter of each line of that stanza. Any one who 
consults & Paragrafih Hillc will readily perceive not only 
that the lines resemble one another in length, and, pro- 

. if we could read the original aright, in the num- 
ber of syllables; but also that each stanza exhibits a 
!o congruity In sense as well as in structure. 
The follow :us will illustrate all these statements, 

with the exception of the alliteration : 

" Mi: -ore, like a bird without cause. 

y have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cat a stone upon 
Waters flowed over my head ; then I said, ' I am cut off! ' 

" I rsillnl upon thy name, O Lord, out of the low dungeon. 

i my voice ; hide not thy face at my breathing, 
my cry. 

Thou drcwcst near in the day that I called upon thee ; thou 

To what extent this alliterative ornament prevailed in 
the poetry of the Greeks and Romans, it is not easy to 
determine, as poems constructed by them on such a 
principle may not have come down to us ; or there may 
! the case for a time in the Welsh poetry, a 
subfile all. in those that we possess, that has not 

i discovered. 
When, however, the more palpable alliteration of 


several adjacent words occurred, it is evident that the 
lid not avoid it, if he did not court such a succes- 
sion of similar letters. As the Latin exercised a far 
greater influence in modifying our language than the 
Greek, we shall draw our illustrations only from the 
former. No sooner do we open the works of Virgil 
than we meet with numerous illustrations of the prin- 
ciple that regulated the construction of the Anglo- 
Saxon poetry, in the very first Eclogue. We shall only 
quote a few of them : 

" Tifyrc, tu pafulaa rccubans pub tegmine fagi 
Silvesfrem tenui Musam mediteria a vena. 

tunate senex, hie inter /lumina nota 
Kt /bntes sacros/rigus captabis opacum. 

" Ckrmina nulla <ranam ; non. me pascento, rap^llffl, 
Florentem eytisum et salices earpetis amaras." 

If we take but a cursory look through the Odes of 
Horace, we shall meet with abundant illustrations: 

" S' : . quos ourifulo pulverem Olympimm 
Cbllegisse juvat. 

" J'estemqne a popvlo et principe Cassaro in 

i is non Latino sanguine pinguior 
Campus sepulcris im/na prselia. 

" Quo graves JRarsae melius porirent, 
t pugnjis vitio /mrentum. 

" /'inns aut impxilsa cu/n^essus Euro, 
>cidit late posuitquo collum in 

7'ulv n- T.-ii' : 

Tlie following lines are too remarkable to be omitted, 
and, although there is no alliterative word in the second 

line, yet pojcdt ccurs in the line immediately preced- 
ing : 

" Allida Mora sequo pulsat pede pauperum tabernas 
Regumque turree." 

As Lucretius is at hand, we shall allow him to fur- 
of evidence on this point, and so dismiss 

our L:it in witnesses : 

" Inde ferae jpecudes porsultant pabula lta, 

it amrv is. 


" Suave, mari wagno turbantibus aaquora ventis, 
E terra magnum alterius spectare laborem. 

u Fixa ^edum pono pressis vestigia signis, 
Non ita certandi cupidus, quam propter amorcm. 

" Et nemora ac monteis gemitu, sylvasque replcbat, 
Fit'a tidens vivo sepeliri viscera busto. 

" Aut ubi suspensam vestem, chartasve volanteis 
Ferberibus venti t'ersant, planguntque per auras. 

Seeing that alliteration prevailed so extensively, more 
especially in the poetic compositions of the Celtic and 
Gothic dialects, the assertion of Barry, in his Description 
of Wales, in the twelfth century, will be the more 
readily received. Both the English and Welsh, accord- 
ing to him, were so fond of this figure of speech, which 
he calls Annomination, that they considered no composi- 
tion elegant, but rather rude and barbarous, in which 
alliteration was not plentifully employed. They would 
miss what they had been accustomed to account a poeti- 
cal elegance, and conclude that the poem had been care- 
lessly composed or that the poet had but a paucity of 

A few specimens may be extracted from one or two of 
our ancient poets, in order to show to what an extent 
composition of this kind could be carried. 

The following specimen is from the Prolong e to the 
Eighth Book of Douglas's Virgil, which consists of four- 
teen similar stanzas : 

' Quhat wikkitness, quhat wunthryf't now in warid walkisl 
Bale has banist blythnes, boist grete brag blawia,

Moutgomerie in his Olierry arid Ike Sloe, thus expresses 


" The cushat crouds, the corhie cries,

Poems continued to be written in English, the VOFFC 
of which was merely alliterative, down to the commence- 
ment of the sixteenth century, and in Scottish, to a still 
later period. 

To such an extent had alliteration taken hold of the 
popular ear that we find it in the jingling titles of books, 
as Scot of Scotstarvifs Staggering State of Scots St'if,*- 
men; in many of onr proverbs, as " fnr fowls have fair 
f outliers," and even in sermons, especially it the propn.-i- 
tions that constituted the several "heads" of dis- 

It is remarkable, however, that the taste that intro- 
duced rhyme began to reject alliteration; for we find 
the critics, and even some of the poets themselves, con- 
demning this principle that had been so generally prac- 
tised and greatly admired, so early as the time of 
Chaucer, who, although there are many graceful in- 
stances scattered through his works, yet rejected it in 
the amplitude which it had acquired, and may be con- 
sidered as indirectly condemning it in the introduction 
to the Parson's Tale, who represents himself as a 
" southren man," in accordance with the prevailing idea 
that the minstrel or harper was specially of the " north 
countrie," and, therefore, acknowledges his ignorance of 
alliteration, which had been considered essential to 
poetry : 

" I can uot geste, rum, ruf, ruf, by letter 
Ne, [truly], rym hold I but litel better. 
And, therefore, if you lust, I wol not ploae, 
1 wol you tello a mery tide in prose," &o. 


So intimately, however, had it been interwoven with 
the texture of the poetical fabric, that, in 1575, when 
Gascoigne published his Notes concerning the making of 
Verse or Rhyme in English he exhorts the student to 
avoid it. Shakspeare, in 1598, had still occasion to 
ridicule the practice ; although his ridicule could have 
been pointed only at the excessive use of this ornament, 
as his own works exhibit many striking specimens of 
alliteration. The pedantic schoolmaster, Holofernes, 
having obtained permission to read "an extemporal 
epitaph on the death of the deer," which, to humour 
the ignorant, he had called a pricket, Pays, " I will some- 
thing effect the letter ; for it argues ft ility," and yhen 
read the epitaph beginning 

" The praiseful princess piorc'd and m-ick'd 
A pretty pleasing pricket ; 

ae say a sore ; but not a sore, 
Till now made sore by shooting," &c. 

" We have," in the comedy which we have quoted, it 
has been said, " many of the forms in which cleverness 
is exhibited as opposed to wisdom, and false refinement 
as opposed to simplicity." 

This ornament appears in the most complicated form in 
the poetical compositions of the nations that inhabited the 
northern districts of Europe, and hence the extent to 
which we iind it prevailing in the poetry of the Anglo- 
Saxons, and even pervading the works of our modern 
poets. Without describing and illustrating all the refine- 
ments in alliteration that the ingenuity of the bards of 
many generations had produced, we shall advert to that 
only which was most obvious and common. This con^ 
in making either all the principal words in a verse of 
some length begin with the same letter; or, in lines of 
less extent, making at least two of the principal words 
in one line and one word in the next line, begin with 
the same letter. Thus the fathers of our literature, to 
adopt the contemptuous language of Milton, put the 
jingling of like sounds at the beginnings, instead of the 
endings of words. A more refined species of allitera- 
tion has been pointed out in the Cymbric poetry, which 
placed corresponding vowel or diphthongal sounds in 
the middle of the words of the adjacent lines, and a 


similar arrangement may frequently be perceived in the 
verses of Anacreon. The following specimen of the 
celebrated poem of Caedmon, which was composed before 
680, the year of his death, will illustrate these prin- 
ciples : 

" Wera wuldor freder, 

swa he wundra ge-hwzsu, . 

ece dryhten, 

oord onsteakle. 

He aerest ge-sceop 

ylda bearnum 

heofon to hrofe 

halig scyppend ! 

firum foldan, 

frea Almihtig ! " 

This style has been very successfully imitated by 
Kingsley in his tale of Hereward, the last of the Ei 
As his vessel, the Offer, sailed southwards from Kirk- 
wall, he cheerily sung to his men : 

;htly the long-snake 
Leaps after tempests, 
Gaily the son-gleam 
Glows after rain. 
In labour and daring 

luck for all mortals, 
d winds and foul witch- wives 
Fray women alone." 

As it is not our intention to give an historical sketch 
of the progress of the English language, but only a few 
illustrations of the peculiarities of its poetry ; so we now 
proceed to give a specimen of a work of the fourteenth 
century, of considerable length and no small merit, 
which was carefully constructed on the alliterative prin- 
ciple. We allude to Langland's Piers Ploughman. The 
following description of the Pardoner will remind the 
reader of Lindsay's description of the same character iii 
his day : 

" There preached a pardoner, 

As he a priest were ; 

Brought forth a bull 

V bishops' seals, 

And said that himself might 
hem Jill, 

Of falsehede of fasting, 

Of avowes y-broken. 


Lewcd men loved it well 

And liked his words ; 

C/omen up kneeling 

To kissen his bulls : 

He bouched them with his brevet. 

And bleared hir ey 

And raught with his ragman 

Kinges and brooches." 

There can be little doubt, that the affectation displayed 
in crowding every line with alliteration, by which inap- 
propriate words must often have been employed, and the 
sense not unfrequently obscured, at last offended a more 
refined taste and led to its disuse. That there is some- 
thing, however, in alliteration that is gratifying to the 
reader, and ornamental to poetic diction, is evident from 
the practice of poets down to the present day. Upon a 
careful inspection of their poems, however, it will appear 
that it is so sparingly and unobtrusively introduced, 
that we believe many readers of poetry, while they aro 
gratified through this graceful use of alliteration, are not 
aware to what their gratification is owing, just as when 
one is enjoying " the cheering but not inebriating" cup, 
he does not pause to think of the due proportion in which 
the several ingredients have been combined. That the 
English language is not essentially or extensively alli- 
terative, may be proved by the facts, that, when it is 
spoken or written naturally or unaffectedly, the attention 
of the hearer or reader is not arrested by the alliterative 
nature of the sentences, and that it requires, therefore, 
no inconsiderable effort, or even a gift that was considered 
peculiar to the poet, in order to render his sentences 
Doth comparatively natural and alliterative ; and that, 
when a speaker expresses himself happily even by an 
alliterative antithesis, the sentence not unfrequently ex- 
cites such applause as would be commanded by a suc- 
cessful witticism. This observation is farther confirmed 
by the large amount of poetry that we now possess 
which is not alliterative, or in which the alliteration is 
eo sparingly and naturally introduced that it may elude 
the observation even of those that are familiar with this 
figure, and that it requires a special search to detect it 
in its lurking places. Alliteration, however, may arise 
from a principle involved iu the very constitution of onr 


language, and may not be regarded as the mere result of 
a ready selection of words from a copious vocabulary, be- 
cause these words must be pertinent to the subject; 
unless, as Chaucer's Parson has expressed it, the com- 
position is a piece of mere rum, raff, ruff, for the purpose 
of amusing the ear with the jingle of alliteration, with- 
out regard to sense, and it is probable that there were 
compositions nearly approaching to this character, by 
which alliteration was brought into contempt. When, 
however, a subject is proposed for discussion or descrip- 
tion, it is surely somewhat remarkable, that so many of 
the words, appropriate to the subject, should begin with 
the same letter. It is this consideration that probably 
would lead down to the roots of our language, and might 
discover the cause, why it is so difficult altogether to 
eradicate alliteration from our speech. Thus were we 
to take gold for an illustration, we should find that, 
under some aspects, it glows, and in others, gleams ; all 
grasp at it, and many groan under it, when they have 
received it in gowpens ; it gilds the saloon, it glitters on 
tho brow of beauty, and excites the gaze of the multi- 
tude ; it has been used as a gag to the loquacious ; a 
goad to the indolent, a guerdon to the poet, and, rarely, 
to the meritorious. This subject, however, belongs 
rather to the profound philologist than to the mere 
describer of the externals of our English poetry. 

Those who are familiar with the contempt in which 
Milton held the tinklings of final syllables, or rhyme, 
will, perhaps, be surprised to find, on a close inspection, 
how much he imitated the Anglo-Saxons in the jinglings 
of initial consonants, which, on the same principle, may 
be held, and by some were held, in equal contempt. 
The prevailing principle of the Saxon alliteration 
that at least two important words that is, generally 
substantives and verbs, to the exclusion of adverbs or 
prepositions, should begin with the same letter, and one 
such word in the next line. Now, in addition to many 
pairs of alliterative adjectives and nouns throughout the 
Paradise Lost, such as " dark destruction," " hazard 
huge," " fixed fate," " silent stream," " warring winds," 
" vast vacuity," " dark descent," " wearied wings," 
"nocturnal note," "fresh fountain," "fishy fume." 


" craggy cliff," &c. ; and many instances of alliterative 
words not in immediate conjunction, but yet occurring 
in the same line, as " to make them mirth used all his 
might," " to taste that only tree," " which declares his 
dignity while they keep watch or nightly rounding 
walk," " the bars of hell an errand bad no doubt," 
"there sitting where thou durst not soar," "single 
against thee wicked and thence weak," " for in his look 
defiance lours," " the fiend thus answered, frowning 
stern," " argues no leader but a liar traced," " leaning 
half raised with looks of cordial love ; " we find such 
instances of a still more complicated alliteration so fre- 
quently occurring in the course of this greatest of epics 
as to leave no reasonable doubt of the influence that the 
structure of the Anglo-Saxon poetry had exercised on 
the mind of Milton, and that, however much he may 
have contemned the like endings of rhyme, he did not 
reject the frequent use of the similar beginnings of 
alliteration. Thus it will generally, we do not say 
universally, be found, that, when two important words 
occur in any line of the Paradise Lost, beginning with 
the same letter, at least one important word or a syllable 
in such word, will be found either in the preceding of 
in the following line, beginning with the same letter, 
according to the very practice of him who first sung of 
Paradise Lost, and whose highest praise is, that the 

r of his poem is reminded of his great successor. 
This assertion is illustrated by the very first two lines 
of the work : 

" Of Man's /irst disobedience, and the /rait 
Of that/orbidden tree, &c." 

To quote the many instances in which this practice 
occurs would be to quote a large portion of the poem. 
We shall, therefore, present only a few, and leave the 
reader to discover others, which he will do in the course 
ry score of lines, as he peruses any portion of thij 
immortal work : 

" Beguiled by /air idolatresses /ell 
To idols /oul. 

' The Syrian Damsels to lament his f \te 
In amourous rfitties all a summer's rfay, 


u Tears swch as Angels weep, burst forth ; at last 
/Fords interwove with sighs found out their tony. 

* Precedence, none, whose .portion is so small 
Of present pain." 

" Intermit no tratch 
linst a wakeful foe, while I abroad 
Through all the coasts of rfurk "Vstruction seek 

liverance for us all : this enterprise 
None shall partake with me. Thus saying rose 
The Monarch and prevented all reply." 

" Or in the emptier waste, resembling iiir, 
/Feighs his spread wings. 

44 To stoop with irearied wings and willing Let 
On the bare out ide of this world. 

*' fall circumvented thus by /raud, though join'd 
With his own folly. 

" And dying rise, and rising with him raise 
His brethren ransomed. 

" His fack was turn'd, but not his Arightnesa liid 
Of foaming sunny rays." 

'c how the terminating words in neatly each of the 
following lines are all alliterative : 

" Yet not rejoicing in his speed though fold 

irless, nor v 

.Begins his dire attempt, which nii^h the //iith 
Now rolling foils in his tumult'; 
And like a devilish engine tack m 

But, obliged to omit passages equally pertinent in 
every page, we shall quote almost the last lines, as prov- 
ing that this peculiarity of style which this inimitable 
poem exhibited at the beginning characterised it to the 
close : 

" Waved over by that /laming brand, the gate 
With dreadful /aces thronged and fiery arms. 

" They hand in hand, with wandering atops and *low 
Through Eden took their solitary way." 

Our space precludes us from giving specimens of alli- 

on from other poets; otherwise we should have 

found examples in every page of Rogers and Crabbe. 

We therefore omit all these, and content ourselves by 

stating that it wafe not despised by Byron, as a few 

from numerous examples, taken from Childe Harold 
will amply prove : 

' My mind may lose its/orce, my blood ita/ire 
And my/rame perish even in conquering pain. 

" But here where murder Areath'd her Woody stoam j 
And here where buzzing nations choked the ways* 

" The Jend 

Of stirring branches, and the ud which brings 
r fhe swiftest thought of beauty. 

" The/ield of/reedom, /action, /ame and blood: 
Here a .proud people's passions were exhaled. 

* And I have loved thee, Ocean ! and my joy 
Of youthful sports was on thy breast to be 
J?orne, like thy ftubftles, onward : from a toy 
I wunton'd with thy ireul 

We shall conclude these illustrations of alliteration 
with a few examples from the last production of our 
Poet Laureate, whose tuneful ear and careful study of 
<rt have detected the graceful use of this Saxon 
ornament in the practice of his great Master in harmo- 
nious verse " the mighty-mouthed inventor of harmo- 
nies" : 

" .Faint as a/igure seen in early dawn 
Down at the /ar end of an avenue. 

" Beheld the rfead flame of the fallen <iay 
Pass from the Danish barrow overhead. 

" Scarce-rocking her /ull-busted /igure-head 
Stared o'er the ripple /Gathering from her bowst 
Then /olio wed culms. 

" The horse he rfrove, the boat he sold, the chill 
November rfawns and rfewy- glooming do 

" A Jater but a loftier Annie Zee, 

Fnir-hair'd and tall, and from her lifted hand 
Dangled a length of ribbon and a ring." 

" .Beating it in upon his weary irain, 
As tho' it were the iurthen of a song." 

Alliteration also abounds in the Voyage : 

** Warm broke the ireeze against the 6row, 

Dry ang the tackle, *ang the sail ; 
The lady's head upon the prow, 

Caught the shrill *alt and aheer'd the gale.** 


In the Idylls of the King, we meet with frequent ex- 
amples, and some of them afford instances of that alter- 
nate alliteration that occurs BO often in the Faerie Queen; 
thus . 

M .Death like ayricnd'jj voice from a c/istant/Ield." 


As an intermediate ornament between alliteration 
and perfect rhyme, a few remarks may be made on 
assonance. This can scarcely be regarded as a charac- 
teristic of English poetry in past times, and is certainly 
not to be considered as such in the present day ; but as 
it may be regarded as the principle on which those 
rhymes that Walker has called "allowable," but which 
in modern poetry would be called " intolerable," were 
introduced, it seems here to claim a passing notice. 
Assonance, therefore, is apeculiarcorrespondence insound 
in the termination of verses, less complete than that 
of rhyme. We think it may be detected in the poetry 
of Greece ; but it has been most carefully cultivated in 
the romantic and dramatic compositions of Spain. In 
assonance, while the vowels of the last accented syllable, 
and in all subsequent syllables are the same, the con- 
sonants must all be different, otherwise consonance or 
rhyme would be produced. " Thus bdrbaro, which has 
the accent on the antepenultimate, is an assonant 
with cdlamo and platano. Br2scas, which is accented 
on the penultima, is an assonant with curan and sitya. 
So in English, hardy, manly, and carry would be asson- 
ants." Assonants, are not, however, exhibited in pairs, 
but are continued throughout the whole poem, without 
any other change than that of blank verse with the as- 
sonants. Assonants are always used by the classical 
dramatists of Spain, but in the lyric poetry of that 
country rhyme is more frequently tdopted. T This prin- 
ciple, we conceive, may account for what would now be 
accounted imperfect rhymes in our ballad poetry, and 
thus may have familiarised its use in poems of higher 
pretensions. This imperfection would be less perceived 
in the song or the ballad, been use, as these poems were 
produced rather to be sung than read, and as the voice

of the singer would dwell on the vowel sounds, it fol- 

, if these were perfect, the terminating con- 

sonants would glide off without producing an unpleasant 

on the ear of the listener. It is unnecessary to 
ri\v examples of a practice so well known, especially 
as it is not now tolerated in poetical composition ; we 
shall merely note that, in glancing over some produc- 
tions of ancient minstrelsy, we find the following words 

ih-d with one another in the place of rhymes; 
stand with man ; black with hat ; sat with clap ; town 
with round; ask with blast; past with glass; mark 
with hat; heels with fields; leek with sweet, <fec., and 
une principle may be seen in the following stanza 
of " the grand old ballad " of Sir Patrick Spenco: 

" forty miles off Aberdeen, 

It's fifty fathom deep, 
And there lies good Sir Patrick Spcnce, 
\Vi the Scots Lord at his foot." 


We have seen at what an early period the po< 
began a certain number of lines or bt 
with the same letter; it was, therefore, but a m 
this fashion to terminate certain poetical lines with the 
same letters or sounds, which constituted what ha> 
nsonance or rhyme. It is perhaps imp t 
ce this ornamental fringe, this purple band on the 
princely toga of the poet, to its origin ; but, although it 
appears to have been despised by the Greeks and their 
followers, the Romans, yet there is ground of belief, that 
it was early exhibited and admired in the East. We 
have found that it was unknown to the Anglo-Saxon 
poet, whose distinguishing ornament, like a fillet on his 
priestly brow, was alliteration ; and, as fashion in poetry 
as well as in other matters, has its times, so it may be 
safely presumed, that, as alliteration began to ebb, so 
rhyme began to flow ; and, as in the case of two tides 
that run in opposite directions, there will be a middle 
space in which the direction of the current is doubtful, 
so we shall find a period in our literature when poems 
exhibited the double decoration of both alliteration and 

i'hyme. Tbo first of these, in the order of time, was a 
translation by Layamon of Waco's Le Brutd'Anyleterte; 
and, as the poem which he translated was in rhyme, it 
is probable that this circumstance suggested to him the 
propriety of endeavouring to imitate his copy in this 
respect. His work is supposed to belong to the latter 
part of the t \vulfth century. The following is a brief 
specimen : 

" Tha, at than veorthe die, 

The King gon to spekene, 

And agaf his gode cnihten 

All hBore rihten ; 

Ho gef seolver, ho gf gold, 

He gef hors, he gef lond, 

1 1 is inonnen he iquende." 

Such is a specimen of early rhyme, which henceforth 
began to hold divided sway with . .11 tho 

time of Chaucer, when rhyme began to prevail, which 
henceforth maintained its sway, although, as we have 
on has by no means been banished from 
the fields of poesy. A few early specimens of the mix- 
ture of these poetical ornaments may not be una 
able. Our first extract is from the King of Tar 
composition of which has been referred to tho beginning 
of tho fourteenth century : 

" I 'he Soudan sat at his dess, 
Y-8erved of the first mett ; 

Their t: i '*&, 

And on their knoi-> 

"And said : ' Siiv, the King of Tars 
Of wicked words is not scarce, 

Heathen hound ho doth theo < 
And, ere his daughter hi till, 

Thine heart-blood he will spill, 

And thy barons all.' " 

As there were some that early despised alliteration, so 
we find t! o were those who equally duspiaed 

rhyme. Ben Jonson spoke of it as 

' Wresting words from their true calling , 
Propping verso iurf<-ir of falling 
To the ground ; 


'' Jointing syllables, drowning letters. 
Fastening vowels, as with ft : 

They were bound." 

Marvel, in addressing Milton, says : 

" Their fancies like our bushy-points appear. 
The poets tag them, we for fashion wear/" 

And even Dryden, himself so great a master of rhymo 
suys : 

" Till barbarous nations, and more barbarous times, 
Debased the majesty of verse to rhymes ; 
These rude at first, a kind of tinkling prose, 
That limped along and hobbled at the close." 

Milton likewise despised these terminal jinglings or 
tags ; yet his consistency is not very apparent in his fre- 
quent use of alliteration. Whilst rhyme may be dis- 
pensed with in the epic, which may be supposed to be 
sustained by the dignity of the subject and the grandeui 
of its style, yet, in spite of all that has been said against 
both alliteration and rhyme, it has been felt that the 
lower species of poetry require the adventitious aid oi 
these ornaments, which, when the one is judiciously 
used, and the other employed in its purity, are so far 
from jarring on the ear that they afford it no inconsider- 
able pleasure. But when alliteration is crowded and 
rhymes are either impure, or occasion the inversion of 
the line, then the art of the rhymer, or rather his inabi- 
lity to manage his materials, becomes so palpable as to 
be offensive. 

Rhyme is not, strictly speaking, " the correspondence 
of sounds in the terminating words or syllables of two 
verses ;" for in true or pure rhymes there must be a 
dissimilarity connected with this correspondence of 
sounds ; and that dissimilarity will be found in the con- 
sonants immediately preceding the terminal sounds. 
Thus the two words rain and reign, differing both in 
their orthography and meaning, have an exact " corres- 
pondence of sound," but yet they would not therefore 
form correct rhymes; and we find the reason in the 
sameness of the initial consonants : let us therefore 
change one of the consonants, and we shall immediately 
have words that constitute perfect rhymes ; thus : 
" The school we name a world, for vice and p tin, 
Fraud and contention, there begin to reign ; " 


Or prefix another consonant that will coalesce with r t 
and we shall have another word, brain, and a perfect 
rhyme ; thus : 

" But still, my friend, that ancient spirit reigns, 
His powers support the credit of his iraina ' 

Should the rhyming syllables, however, both have the 
same consonant, a syllable prefixed to one of the words 
will not fit the words for rhyming together. Thus, in 
the following example, the rhyming syllable in both 
lines is the same, although one of them is preceded 
by anotkar syllable, and, therefore, the rhyme is im- 
proper : 

" What wonder I was all unwise 

To shape the song for your delight, 
Like long-tail'd hirds of Paradise, 

That float thro' heaven and cannot light" 

The rhymes in the following couplet, for a similar 
reason, are equally faulty : 

" And then, that instant, there appeared the maid, 
By his sad looks in her approach dismay'd." 

In the case of a female syllable, or double ending, ;ho 
rhyme is in the accented syllables, and, therefore the 
differing consonants must precede them : 
" Faint she grew and ever fainter, 
As she murmur'd * Oh, that he 
Were once more that village painter, 
Which did win my heart from me.' " 

It may be farther remarked, regarding double end- 
ings, that words ending in tion and ing, perhaps from 
the facility of finding them, are avoided by our best 
poets; neither is it correct to say that double ending 
are peculiar to ludicrous composition, as is suffic 
evinced by the poem from which the preceding extract 
has been taken. No doubt double endings and com- 
pound words are used in ludicrous composition, but they 
are not essentially ludicrous. 

Rhyme does not appear to have been admitted into 
the poetry of the Romans as a uniform ornament ; but 
we frequently find the semifeet of the pentameter con- 
stituting rhymes, which we can scarcely suppose oc- 
curred per incuriam ; thus : 

" Dnm licet, in liquida nat tibi linter aqua." 

.v)B*8 PREFACE. 

Ovid's poem, called Fasti, is wholly written in El 

. and atlbrds innumerable examples of this prac- 
tice ; but, instead of giving a number of unconnected 
\ve shall rather present a brief passage, iu which 
the frequency of rhyme in the pentameter lines will be 
tcadily perceived: 

" Quid tibi cum gladio P dubiam rege, navita, pinum, 

. sunt htec digits arma tenoiula tin's. 
Ille metu pavidus, Mortem non doprecor, inquit : 

Scd liccat sumpte pauca rcfcrre lyi </. 
Dant veniam, ridentque moram. Capit ille coronam, 

Quae possit crines, Phoebo, decero tuos. 
In- . :o bis tinctam murice pallara : 

Reddidit iota sue* pollice chorda sono* : 
1'rotinus in medias ornatus dcsilit undns ; 
r iinpulsa caDrula puppis a<; 
majus tcrgo di-lj')iina rrcurvo 
Se memorant oneri supposuisae novo. 

st-dens citharamque tenet, j)retiumque vehendi 
Cantat, et a-quort-rt* carmine mulct: t aquo." 

Our own j)oets, in their minor productions, have 
apparently imitated this practice in such lines as do not 
rhyme with their corresponding lines, as in 
verses of the poem ; thus Campbell, iu Lurd I 


" But still at wilder blew the wind, 

A nd as the night grew di 
A down the glrw rode armed n 
Their trampling sounded nearer." 

riyson has uniformly adopted this construction in 
the tilth line of the stanza of Lady Clara Vere de Fere: - 

ve'er it b#, it seems to me, 
Tis only noble to be good. 
Kind hearts are more than coronets, 
And simple faith than Norman blood." 

As our remarks and examples, however, have far ex- 
1 the bounds prescribed to us, we must now con- 
wit h the hope that they may both ii:

AMONG the various attempts to facilitate the orthography 
and pronunciation of the English language, it is not a little 
surprising that the method here adopted should have been 
either totally overlooked or neglected. A Rhyming Dic- 
tionary in a living language, lor the purposes of poetry, 
seems no very unnatural or useless production, and imper- 
fect sketches of such a work have already been given us 
by Poole and Bysshe ; but no one has hitherto thought of 
making a dictionary of terminations subservient to the art 
of spelling and pronouncing. The more obvious use of a 
work of this land was perhaps an obstacle to the comple- 
tion of it, and its latent, though more useful qualities, were 
by this means unobserved. A mere rhyming dictionary 
was looked on either as a bauble for school boys, or a re- 
source for poetasters ; and the nobler ends of pointing 
ont the analogy of orthography and pronunciation, like 
many other advantages, were overlooked in the insigni- 
ficancy and puerility of the means. 

Johnson's Dictionary is scarcely more valuable for so 
nicely tracing the various and almost vanishing shades of 
the same word, than for furnishing us with so copious a 
collection of nearly similar words of a different form. 
Those who understand the harmony of prose, pay a 
cheerful tribute to Dr. Johnson on this account, as he 
admits them to a more easy and extensive view of the 
powers of the language, than can possibly be suggested 
by t^ft memory alone * and by thig mf^my assists trbftfr 
delicacy of choice, on which the precision and harmony 
[iression so essentially depend. This advantage, 
which perhaps was not foreseen by Dr. Johnson himself, 
was no more than a necessary, though not an obvious, 
consequence of so copious and perfect a distribution of 
the language into its constituent parts ; and without the 
vanity of pretending to a parallel, it may naturally be 
presumed, that an arrangement, which is perfectly new, 

may possibly produce advantages which were entirely 
v this ai ra: ; ^oment was actually drawn 
out ; for experience furnishes us with a variety of in- 
stances of unexpected improvements arising from new, 
and perhaps fortuituous combinations, which were never 

i -ted by theorists, until a discovery had been made. 
The English Language, it may be said, has hitherto 

seen through but one end of the perspective ; and 
though terminations form the distinguishing character 
and specific difference of every language in the world, we 
have never till now had a prospect of our own, in this 
point of view. Dr. Wallis has, with great penetration 
and sagacity, shown the general import of initial con- 
sonants ; and with more appearance of truth than could 
have been conceived, has evinced, that words of a simi- 
lar signification, which aro radically English, com- 
mence with nearly the same radical articulations. Mr. 
Elplnnston too has given us a very good idea of the 

-il import of terminations, by strictures on tho 
\ ;irt of them ; but none have yet thought it 
worth their while to give us a complete and alphabetical 
enumeration of the whole, by which alone we can have 
an adequate idea of every part. In this arrangement of 
the language, we easily discover its idiomatic structure, 
and find its several parts fall into their proper classes, 
and almost every word as much distinguished by its 
termination as its sense. We at one glance perceive 
the peculiar vegetation of our own language, and the 
alteration foreign words undergo, by being transplanted 
into English soil. And thus by an acquaintance with the 
specific character of eveiy termination, we are the more 
readily led to assimilate foreign terms, by stamping them 
with the current impression of our own.

Bat an analogical insight into the recesses of formation 
is not every advantage arising from this new and complete 
prospect of it. Our orthography is not only an insuper- 
able difficulty to foreigners, but an [endless] source of 
dispute and perplexity to ourselves ; and, though it would 


be in vain to think of removing every intricacy that is 
constantly arising from indolence and caprice, yet that 
a considerable nnmber may be remedied by a view of 
the general laws of formation, will be readily conceived 
by those who enqnire into the origin of the difficulties 
complained of. By an affectation of approximating to 
the orthography of the learned languages, we have rooted 
ont many nsefnl letters that sprang np naturally with 
exotic words, and have been led to exclude all letters in 
our compounds which are not actually pronounced, 
though their existence in these words is often no less 
necessary to prevent ambiguity than in the simples 

Thus the useful servile e is hardly ever suffered to 
have a place in composition, though, from a feeling of its 
importance, we are almost intuitively tempted to let it 
remain in the branches, whenever we recollect it in the 
root. The omission or insertion of this letter occasions 
a numerous catalogue of rules and exceptions. The other 
serviles, I, s, &c. are no less absurdly omitted in com- 
position, though their power remains, and by this means 
both orthography and pronunciation are confounded. 
The duplication of consonants, when an additional ter- 
mination is assumed, forms another difficulty in our 
terminational orthography, as it may be called, which 
has embarrassed the most correct and accurate w i 
Now the only clew to extricate ns from this labyrinth 
seems the method here adopted. An immediate view of 
the similar formation of similar parts of speech, gives us 
a competent idea of the laws of terminational ortho- 
graphy, and enables ns to detect the least violation of 
them. Thus when in our best dictionaries I find saleable, 
tameable, and a few other words of the same form, retain 
the silent e, I conclude these are either slips of the pen, 
or errors of the press ; for that the whole current of 
similar endings, as blamable, adorable, definable, &c. omit 
the e, and that no reason appears for retaining it in the 
former, and not in the latter wo 

But in order to detect the orthographical irregularities 
of our language, it will be necessary first to lay down 
such general maxims in spelling as have almost universally 
taken place. By these we may judge of the impropriety 


of those deviations, which are owing perhaps to a want 
of seeing the laws of formation as here exhibited, and 
knowing how far the irregularity extends. 



Monosyllables ending with/, I, or s, preceded by a sin- 
gle vowel, double the final consonant; as staff, mill, pass, 
Ac. of, if, as, is, gas, has, was, yes, us, thus, are the only 
exceptions ; and add, "butt, ebb, egg, odd, err, buzz, are the 
only words where other consonants are doubled in the same 


Words ending with y, preceded by a consonant, form 
the plural of nouns, the persons of verbs, verbal nouns, 
past participles, comparatives, and superlatives, by 
changing y into i; as spy, spies, I carry, thou cam 

th, or carries, carrier, carried, happy, happier, hap- 
piest ; but the present participle in ing retains the y, 
that t may not be doubled, as carrying ; y preceded by 
a vowel is never thus changed, as boy, boys, I cloy, he 
cloys, &c. 


By this rule we may perceive the impropriety of 
writing flyer for flier, and defyer for defier, and the still 
greater impropriety of writing fatner, oftner, and softner, 
for fatt&ner, oftener, softener ; though we meet with them 
in our best dictionaries ; for the common terminations 
of verbs, verbal nouns, participles, &c. never occasion 
any contraction in the radical word; entrance and re- 
membrance pretend kindred with the French entrant 
and remembrer, and are therefore incorrigible ; but won- 
drous ought to be written with the e, as well as slander- 
ous; and if we write dexterous, why should we see 
sinistrous ? 


Words ending with the hissing consonants, cli, s, sh, 
x, z, form the plural of nouns by adding es, and the per- 
sons of verbs by est, eth, or es, as church, churches, 1 
march, thou marchest, he marcheth, or marches. Geni- 

lives of words ending in these consonants are formed by 
adding * with an apostrophe ; as 8t* James's church t the 
church's ceremonies. 


Words ending with any consonant and silent e, form 
their plural by adding s only, as a place, places, and per- 
sons of verbs, by adding st, th, or *, as 7 place, thou 
placest, he placeth, or places. Genitives of words ending 
with these letters are formed by adding s with an apos- 
trophe, as the place's pleasantness. Material adjectives 
in y, and comparatives in ish, are formed from substan- 
tives of this termination by omitting the silent e, and 
annexing y or ish to the consonant, as ropy, winy, slavish, 
swinish, &c. from rope, wine, slave, swine, &c. The past 
participles, verbal nouns, and comparatives and super- 
latives, add d, r, and st, to the simple, as placed, a placer, 
wise, wiser, wisest ; but the present participle cute off the 
e, and annexes ing, as placing. However, where the 
silent e is preceded by the soft g, the e must be pre- 
served, if the sense of the word would otherwise be am- 
biguous ; for we have no other means of distinguishing 
singeing, the participle of to singe, from sieging, the par- 
ticiple of to sing ; swingeing, from swinging, &c. As to 
cringing, twinging, &c. from cringe, twinge, &c., we trust 
to the common power of the letters, as we have no verbs 
to cring, twing, &c., to occasion any mistake ; for with 
respect to participles and verbal nouns, a previous know- 
ledge of the theme is supposed to bo indispensably 
necessary. See Aphorism x. 


Words ending with a single consonant, preceded by a 
single vowel, and with the accent on the last syllable, 
upon assuming an additional syllable, beginning with a 
vowel or y, double the consonant, as to abet, an abettor; 
to begin, a beginning; a fen, fenny ; thin, thinnish, &c. 
but if a diphthong precede, or the accent be on the pre- 
ceding syllable, the consonant remains single, as to toil, 
toiling; to offer, an offering, &c. 


By this rule, which is founded on an intention of a* 
cortainiug the quantity of the accented vowel by doub- 
ling the consonant, and which would be infinitely use- 
ful and agreeable to the analogy of the language, if ex- 
tended universally, we perceive the impropriety of spell- 
in'_T Mi-- adventitious syllables of terminations with 
(loiibU- Ic-tUTs, when the accent is not really upon them. 
Bishop Lowth has justly remarked, that this error fre- 
quently takes place in the words, worslii^, 
&c., which, luiving the accent on the first syllable, ought 
to be written wor- , &c. An ignor- 

of this rule has led many to write Ugotted for 
bigoted ; and from this spelling has frequently arisen a 
false pronunciation; [or rather the mis-spelling has 
arisen from a former mode of pronunciation, in which the 
t was placed on the penult, as is occasionally 
done in Scotland to the present day ; ] but no letter 
to be more frequently doubled improperly than I. 
Why we should write . /<T'//M</, rwMng, and

the letter T, : >r an expulsion. [Since Wai- 

time the superfluous t has been rejected from 
'1; but the I in the other words still improperly 
retains its duplicity.] 


W- >rds ending with y, preceded by a consonant, upon 
assuming an additional syllable beginning witli a con- 
sonant, change y into t, as happy, happily, happiness; 
but y preceded by a vowel is never thus changed, as 
coy, coyly, gay, gayly, &c. [but gaily is of daily occur- 


By attending to this rule, we detect a number ol 
typographical errors, from which even our best diction- 
ary is not free ; such as shyly, dryly, dry ness, instead of 

Warlmrton, in his edition of 
every where adheres to this analogy.

JSaaay on Grit. 

Though in the first edition of this Essay, published 
by Pope himself, we find this word written dryly. Why 
should be thus converted into t is not easily con- 
1, unless it was feared we should confound words 
of our own language with those derived from the Greek ; 
for, with respect to the distinction of the plural number 
from the genitive case, as this does not prevent the 
similitude when a vowel precedes, why should we fear 
a mistake between flys &nd fly's any more than between 
boys and boy's? It proltublo that the origin of 

this insignificant and embarrassing change of the y into 
t, arose from the taste and sagacity of English printers, 
who considered the y as bearing too little proportion to 
the number of the other letters, and made this weighty 
reason the foundation of the alteration. But to this al- 
on once allowed by custom, even a Baskcrvillo 
must submit; and certainty being more the object of 
language than perfect propriety, it would be the last ab- 
surdity, to deprive a rule, which has nothing else to 
recommend it, of its only merit uniformity. 


Words ending ^Tith any double letter but I, and ti 
ness, less, ly, orful, after them, preserve the letter double; 
rmlessness, carelessness, carelessly, stiffness, stiffly, SU-G- 
cessfulj distressful, &c. ; but those words ending with 
double I, and taking ness, less, ly, orful, after them, omit 
one I, QS fulness, skilless, fully. 


Why one I should be omitted when less or ly is as- 
sumed, may be easily conceived to arise from the uncouth 
appearance three letters of the same kind would have 
wl len meeting together ; but why the analogy bet 
these simples and compounds should be destroyed when 
ness orful is assumed, is not easy to comprehend ; why 
vhonld we not write dullness, fuV 


is well as stiffness, gruffness, crossly, and crossness ? Nay, 
the propriety of this orthography makes it almost impos- 
sible to root it out entirely, and we find these four 
words, illness, fellness, shrillness, and stillness, left in our 
best dictionary with the double I, but a greater number 
of words of the same form having the single Z, as smal- 
ness, ialness, chilness, dulness, fulness, and the long cata- 
logue of words of this termination, as wilfulness, blissful' 
ness, &c., sufficiently show to which orthography custom 
has the greatest partiality ; and indeed as the rage for 
curtailing our language of double letters seems incurable, 
the disease will at least be more tolerable if we deter- 
mine its progress to some uniformity, and since there is 
no hope of restoring the lost I to

unless we are determined to have no rule for our ortho- 
graphy, good or bad ? This rule likewise serves to cor- 
rect several typographical errors in our best dictionary, 
as carelesly, needlesly, &c., for carelessly, needlessly, <fec.* 


Ness, less, ly, and ful, added to words ending with 
silent e, do not cut it off, as paleness, guileless, closely, 
i/WZ, &c., except e is preceded by a vowel, and then 
it is omitted, as duly, truly, from due, and true. 

But what shall we say then to bhiely, blueness, rueful, 
Ac., which, strange as it may seem, would be more agree- 
ably to the general current of orthography, written bluly, 
bluness, mjul, &c. The reasons seem to be these : wher- 
ever the general laws of pronunciation in compounds 
supply the place of serviles in simple words, there the 
serviles are omitted ; but bluly, bluness, ruful, <fcc., ao- 

* These observations are not now applicable, as smalln&s, tall 
naa, chillnets, dullness, fullness, &c. t are written with a double /. 


cording to the common rule of pronouncing, would be 
as justly sounded as bluely, blueness, rueful, &c., and at 
the same time would preclude the possible mistake 
which might arise if the simples blue and rue were not 
understood to be the root of the words in question ; for 
in this case blueness and rueful might be pronounced as 
if divided into blu-e-ness and ru-e-ful ; but as it is neces- 
sary the spelling should convey the sound of the com- 
pound, without supposing a previous knowledge of the 
simples, and without being liable to a double pronuncia- 
tion, the omission of e in bluly and bluness, as well as in 
duly and truly, seems most analogical. See Aphorism x.

Ment added to the words ending with silent e, pre-

This exception is founded on the necessity of showing 
that the preceding c and g in these words are soft, which 
might possibly be mistaken, and pronounced hard, if 
written changable, peacable, <kc. Another exception 
seems to take place in the compounds of move &ndprove, 
which are generally written moveable, proveable, &c.,

The uncertainty of our orthography in this cln- 
words may be presumed to arise from a confused idea of 
the necessity of ascertaining the sound of the simple by 
IILT the silent e, and the general custom of omit t in-_r 
this letter when words are compounded with these 
minations : and it will require some attention to dis 
cover to which of these modes of spelling we ought to 
give the j o; however, till better reasons are 

offered for a decision, let us suppose the following : 

The first object of spelling compound words seems to 
be merely a conveyance of the sound, without n 
supposing a knowledge of the simples ; that the elements 
of which the compound is formed, may be sufficient of 
->>st their sound. The next object of 
spelling compounds seems to be an omission of all ser- 
imples which were not actually sounded, 
and whose use may be supposed to be superseded in the 
compounds by the general laws of ^nirlish pronuncia- 
tion, which, contrary to those of the learned langii 
suppose every accented vowel to be long and open, which 
is followed but by a single consonant Thus the e in 
desirable is omitted, because the common rules of pro- 
nunciation indicate that the accent upon r, followed by 
a consonant succeeded by a vowel, with the accent upon 
it, has necessarily the same sound as in desire. But when 
the radicfil letters have not their ordinary sound in the 


gimples, the first law of orthography takes place, and 
inserts the servile e to suggest the sound of the simple, 
when blended with the compound ; for though we are 
frugal of our letters to a fault, yet when the sound of 
any of the radical letters might be endangered by such 
an omission, we then find the e preserved. Nor is a 
previous knowledge of the simple supposed to be a suffi- 
cient security, as in cliangeable, peaceable, &c. From 
hence we may gather that every compound word is sup- 
posed to convey its own sound agreeably to the common 
sound of the letters, without the necessity of having re- 
course to a knowledge of the eimples from which it is 
formed, and therefore' as the sound of o in move, prove, 
&c.j is not the general sound of that letter, and conse- 
quently if the e were not preserved to suggest the simple, 
it might be liable to the sound of o in rove, grove, love, or 
shove, we find it perfectly agreeable to the first gi- 
law of English orthography to retain the letter by which 
alone the sound of the radical part of the word can be 
ascertained ; and therefore as we very justly write move- 
able, proveable, <fcc., so we ought to write removeable, tw- 
proveable, Ac., moving, proving, <kc., being affections of 
the verbs move and prove, necessarily suggest their 
.si in pies, and make the insertion of unnecessary. Set 
Aphorism iv. 

With respect to reconcilcable, unreconcileable, and re- 
ableness, which we find in Johnson with the e, 
though irreconcilable, irreconcilably, and irreconcilableness, 
are without it, we must class these with saleable, tame- 
able, wishakeable, untameable, and sizeable; for as these 
to only words of this form in the whole language 
where the silent e is preserved, it is reasonable to sup- 
pose that its insertion here was owing to the inadvert* 
ence either of the author or printer ; for as the preser- 
vation of e in these words is founded on such reasons as 
would oblige us to preserve the silent e in all compounds 
where it is now omitted, and consequently entirely alter 
the current orthography, the omission of it, wherever 
the preceding vowel or consonant retains its general 
sound, is certainly the most analogical ; as there is no 
more reason for retaining the silent e in saleable, tame- 
able, <fcc. than in blamable, tunable, consumable, &c. 

able has a proper claim to the e, to show that th has its 
flat or obtuse sound. 


The verbs to lay, pay, and say, by an unaccountable 
caprice, form their preterites and participles passive, by 
changing y into i, and omitting e in the assumed ter- 
mination ed ; and instead of layed, payed, sayed, we 
always see laid, paid, said, which orthography is pre- 
served in their compounds, as unlaid, unsaid, repaid. 
This is an exception to Aphorism ii. 


Words taken into composition often drop those letters 
which were superfluous in their simples, as Christmas, 
dunghtt, handful, &c. 


The uncertainty of our orthography in this article 
calls loudly for reformation, and nothing can better 
show the danger of indulging this excision, than a 
display of the diversity that reigns in Johnson's Dic-

The origin of this ridiculous irregularity which has 
prevailed within these few years, is not hard to guess. 
Some shallow writers, or perhaps printers, have heard 
that good authors have complained that our language is 
clogged by clusters of consonants. This was sufficient 
to set these smatterers at work on so easy a business as 
that of unloading the language of its useless letters; 
and we find, under the notion of useless letters, and 
clusters of consonants, we are near being deprived of 


the most useful letters we have. But words are evi- 
dently mistaken for things. Clusters of consonants to 
the ear are very different from assemblages of conson- 
ants to the eye ; these are often no more than double 
consonants of the same kind, and are sounded as easily 
as single ones ; but those knots of discordant consonantn 
to the ear, however disgustful, are not to be removed 
without entirely altering the language. The clusters of 
consonants of which Mr. Addisen complains, are those 
that arise from sinking the intervening vowels in pro- 
nunciation, as drown'd j walk'd, arrived, for drowned, 
walked, arrived. The double letters at the end of words, 
which are ridiculously confounded with what is termed 
clusters of consonants, as to install, windfall, hanJj'idl, 
Ac., are often so essentially necessary to preserve the 
true sound from being mistaken, that, if we deprive 
words of one of these double letters, they are in danger 
of degenerating into a different sound ; for what secu- 
rity have we but a previous knowledge of the simples, 
which is contrary to the first principles of our ortho- 
graphy, that the last syllable of waterfal is not to rhyme 
with the first of shallow, and the last of handful with the 
monosyllable dull ? 

In short, as Mr. Elphinston very justly, as well as 
pleasantly, observes, " Every reader, both young and 
old, must now be so sagacious an analyst, as to discern 
at once, not only what are compounds, and what their 
simples, but that al i n composition is equal to all out of 
it; or, in other words, that it is, both what it is, and 
what it is not." Prin. Eny. Lan. vol. i. p. 60. 

Thus have I ventured, with a trembling hand, to 
point out a few of the most glaring inconsistencies 
under which the orthography of our language labours, 
without daring to make the least step to a reformation 
myself; for if ever this be done to any good purpose, it 
must certainly be by the joint labour of both our uni- 
versities ; till when, no individual can do better service 
to the orthography of his country, than to let it remain 
as it stands at present in that monument of English

philology erected by Johnson. Those who see beyond 
the surface, regret the many deviations from that only 

: nl of our language by the Greeklings and 1- 
itasters of this smattering age ; and it is certainly to be 
feared, that, if this pruning of our words of all the 
superfluous letters, as they are called, should be much 
further indulged, we shall quickly antiquate our most 
respectable authors and irreparably maim our language. 


As the inverted order of arrangement gives us a con- 
sistent idea of the structure of language, so a division of 
words into syllables directs us in their sound; for tho 
division here adopted is not founded on any rules drawn 
from etymology, or the practice of 1;. ssi-ntialiy 

dilK-rent from our own, but on such principles as are tho 
ivsult of the language itself, and arise naturally 
the very nature and practice of pronunciation. This 
part of language, which has been left to chance or 
of all others the most important and delicate. 
} lardly anything like a system has been chalked out, or 
have any rules been gm-n that h.ive produced the least 
uniformity, or answered any valuable purposes of pro- 
nunciation. Till Dr. Kenrick's Rhetorical Dictionary, 
we have scarcely seen anythir^ like an attempt to divido 
words as they are pronounced ; but the Latin and Greek 
syllabication implicitly adopted, to the evident disad- 
vantage of children, and embarrassment of foreigners ; 
and for the very same reasons that Ramus contends we 
ouirht to divide doctus and Atlas into do-ctus and A-tlas, 
Mr Ward insists we must separate magnet, poplar, lustre, 
and reptile into ma-<jn> /, lu^stre, and re-pi 

Now if the end of s . on may be supposed to 

be the most likely method of directing us to the means^ 
we shall find nothing can be more ibsurd than such a 
division. For the object of parcelling out a word into 
distinct portions, seems to be to instruct us either in itf 
etymology or pronunciation. *i in the division of word* 
into syllables we have only etymology in view, we must 
undoubtedly resolve compounds into their simples, with* 
out paying the least attention to the sound of thest 
; either as united, or in a state of separation. 


But though this method of syllabicating be very proper 
when wo would investigate Hie origin of a word ami 
show its derivation, yet, when a distinctness of sound is 
the only object of such a division, as is ever the en 
the pronunciation of language, it would be the highest 
absurdity to clog the instruction with etymological divi- 
sions, as these are frequently opposite to actual pronun- 
ciation. Here then, sound alone should be the criterion 
of syllabication, and we ought to reduce a compound 
word to its simple impulses of the voice, as we would 
a bar of music to its simple notes ; for etymologists may 
surely content themselves with their own divisions 
where sound is not in question, without disturbing 
those whose principal object is the conveying of sound, 
and who consider etymology as entirely independent 
on it. 

Easy, however, as such a division may appear at first 
view, an attempt to extend it to every word in the lan- 
guage will soon convince us that the ear in a thor 

cos will prove but a very uncertain guide, without 
s knowledge of those principles by which the ear itself 
is insensibly directed, and which, having their origin in 
ihe nature of language, operate with steadiness and re- 
gularity in the iuiL>b of the ficklest affectation and 
caprice. It can scarcely be supposed that the most ex- 
iced speaker has heard every word in the language 
and the whole circle of sciences pronounced exactly ;;L 
o be; and if this be the case, he must some- 
liave recourse to the principles of pronunciation, 
when his e >er uninformed or unfaithfi,. These 

principles are those general laws of articulation, which 
determine the character, and fix the boundaries of 
every language ; as in every system of speaking, how 
ever irregular, the organs must necessarily fall into some 
common mode of enunciation, or the purpose of Provi- 
dence in the gift of speech would be absolutely defeated. 
These laws, like every other object of philosophical in- 
quiry, are only to be traced by an attentive observation 
and enumeration of particulars, and when these parti- 
culars are sufficiently numerous to form a general rule, 
an axiom in pronunciation is acquired. By an accumu- 
lation of these axioms, and an analogical comparison of 


them with each other, we discover the deviations ol 
language where custom has varied, and the only clew to 
guide us where custom is either indeterminate or ob- 

Thus, by a view of the words ending in ity or > 
find the accent invariably placed on the preceding sylla- 
ble, as in diver' sity, congru'ity, <fec. On a clos 
tion I find every vowel in this antepenultimate syllable, 
when no consonant intervenes, pronounced long, as 
. ptety, &c.j a nearer observation shows me that if 
a consonant intervene, every vowel in this syllable but t* 
contracts itself, and is pronounced short, as sei 
cwriosfity, inij>u'nity, &c. I find too, that even u con- 
tracts itself before two consonants, as cur'-vit>/, taciturnity 
etc., and that scarcity and rarity* (for whose irregularity 
good reasons may be given), are the only exceptions to 
this rule throughout the language. And thus we have 
a series of near seven hundred words, the accentuation 
of which, as well as the quantity of the accented vowel, 
is reduced to two or three simple rules. 

The same uniformity of accentuation and quantity, 
may be observed in the first syllable of those words 
which have the accent on the third, as dem-on-stra'tionj 
dim-i-nu'tion, lu-cu-bra'tion, <fcc., where we evidently per- 
ceive a stress on the first syllable shortening every 
vowel butw, and this in every word throughout the lan- 
guage, except where two consonants follow the w, as in 
-Jin-ear, or where two vowels follow the consonant 
that succeeds any other vowel in the first syllable, as 
-n'tion; or lastly, where the word is evidently of 
our own composition, as re-con-vey' : but as u in the first 
syllable of a word, having the accent on the third has 
the same tendency to length and openness as was ob- 
servable when it preceded the termination ity ; I find it 
necessary to separate it from the consonant in bu-ty- 
raceous, which I have never heard pronounced, as well as 
in lucubration, which I have, and this from no pretended 
agreement with the quantity of the Latin words these are 
derived from, for in the former word the u is doubtral ; 
but from the general system of quantity I see adopted 
in English pronunciation. This only will direct an 

Some orthcepists do not now account rarity an exception. 

English ear with certainty ; for though we may some- 
place the accent on words we borrow from the 
Greek or Latin on the same syllable as in those 1: 

as acu'men, elegi'ac, &c. ; nay, though we sometimes 
mlopt the accent of the original with every word of the 
same termination we derive from it, as assiduity, viduity, 

yet the quantity of the accented vowel is so 
contrary to that of the Latin and Greek, that scarcely 
the shadow of a rule can be drawn, in this point, from 
these languages to ours. Thus, in the letter in question, 
in the Latin accumulo, dubious, tumour, &c., the first u 
is every where short ; but in the English words ac> 
late, dubius, tumor, every where long, .ftfoptiofc, mur- 
mur, turbulentus, <fcc. where then in the first syllable in 
Latin is long, we as constantly pronounce it short in 
nuptial, murmur, turbulent, <fcc. Nor indeed can we 
wonder that a different economy of quantity is observ- 
able in the ancient and modern languages, as in the 
former, two consonants almost always lengthen the pre- 
ceding vowel, and in the latter as constantly short m it. 
Thus, without arguing in a vicious circle, we find that 
as a division of the generality of words as they are 
actually pronounced, gives us the general laws of sylla- 
bication, so these laws, once understood, direct us in the 
division of such words as we have never heard actually 
pronounced, and consequently to the true pronunciation 
of them. For these operations, like cause and effect, re- 
flect mutually a light on each other, and prove that, by 
nicely observing the path which custom in language has 
once taken, we can more than guess at the line she 
must keep in a similar case, where her footsteps ai 
quite so discernible. So true is the observation of 
Scaliger, Ita omnibus in rebus certissim* ration* *ibi ipsa 
respondet natura. De causis Ling. Lat. 


Syllabication having sound for its object, and the asso- 
ciation of similar terminations contributing so largely to 
facilitate syllabication, it is evident that the most obvious 
advantage of this inverted prospect of oar language is the 
assistance it affords to pronunciation. In other dictiona- 
ries, words of a totally different form promiscuously sue- 


ceed each other, while in this we find the words sorted 
by their species as well as letters. It is recommr 
by Mr. Sheridan, in his Lectures on Elocution, to select 
those words which we find difficult to pronounce, and to 
repeat them frequently till a habit is acquired. This rule 
is founded on good senk'o imd experience, and ought to 
be carefully attended to by foreigners and provincials ; 
but if the difficulty of pronouncing lies in the latter 
syllables, as is most frequently thu case, what immense 
labour mnet it be to oeiect these from a common dic- 
tionary ? But in this, how readily are we introduced to 
the whole species of any termination at once, and by 
seeing the whole class, gain an intimate acquaintance 
with its specific orthography and pronunciation ; for by 
this means, not only a more precise idea of the spelling 
of words is obtained, and an opportunity of habituat- 
ing the organs to every difficult termination, but the 
dependence of accent on termination is at large dis- 
1, a nd a habit induced of associating the stress 
with its correspondent ultimate syllable. This view of 
accent will show us that our language is much less irre- 
gular than is generally imagined, and we soon discover 
termination to be, as it were, a rudder to accent, a key 
that opens to us an unexpected scene of uniformity 
proves, as Mr. Elphinston admirably presses it, " that 
speech, the peculiar glory of ration u intercourse, is 
neither given nor guided by an arbitrary power, but that 
use in language, as in all nature, is no other than the 
constant agency of harmony and of reason." Prin. Eng. 
Lan. vol. i. p. 3. 

There are few but must observe with what difficulty 
children, and even youth, acquire a secure pronunciation 
of the technical terms in the learned professions, and 
how frequently they are at a loss for the sound of an 
1 in^lish word they have not been accustomed to even at 
the time they are making great advances in the learned 
languages. This observation will naturally lead us to 
presume that the present work, of all others, must be the 
most useful for such schools as are not entirely negligent 
of their mother tongue. Here the words of any difficulty 
are selected in a moment, and by being repeated 
times over in the order they lie, will imbue the ear with 


such an accontuav rhythmus, if I may call it so, as will 
infallibly regulate the pronunciation ever after. 

The division and accentuation of words, according to 
the length or shortness of the vowels, is an advantage 
to pronunciation which must strike the most cursory 
inspector. The utility of such a method, if just and 
agreeable to the analogy of the language, will be readily 
acknowledged by those who are so frequently disap- 
pointed in the inspection of other dictionaries. It is not 
a little surprising that a method of accentuation, so pecu- 
liarly useful, should till lately have been almost entirely 
neglected. This defect in the generality of our dictiona- 
ries did not escape the judicious Mr. Sheridan, who in- 
sists largely on the utility of placing the accent on the 
consonant, when the preceding vowel is short, and on the 
vowel, when the vowel itself is long ; and though this 
does not specify the kind of vowel, with respect to sounc^ 
which is the subject of accentuation, it at least deter- 
mines its quantity, and is so far infinitely superior to 
the common method of placing the accent on the vowel, 
whether it be long or short. 

Another and almost exclusive advantage of the pre- 
sent work is, that every monosyllable which swerves 
from the general rule of pronunciation, is rhymed with 
such a word as cannot possibly be pronounced othi 
than it is written ; or if this cannot be done, it is spelled 
in such a manner as to take away all ambiguity. Thus 
as the more general sound of the diphthong ea is like e 
long and open in here, mere, &c., wherever it deviates 
from this sound, a rhyme is inserted to ascertain its pro- 
nunciation ; head therefore is rhymed with bed, that it 
may not be liable to the Scotch pronunciation of this 
word, as if spelled heed ; and great is rhymed with bate, 
that it may be distinguished from the sound the Irish are 
apt to give it, as if spelled greet. A bow (to shoot with) 
is rhymed with go, and bow (an act of reverence) with 
cow ; and prove, dove, <fec., are determined in their pro- 
nunciation by the uni vocal orthography proove, duvv, &c. ; 
by this means the stamina of our language, as monosyl- 
lables may be called, are freed from ambiguity of sound, 
and compounds rendered easier by fixing the pronuncia- 
tion of their simples. 


The last, though perhaps the least, advantage of the 
following work, is the complete collection of all the 
rhymes in the language. However insignificant it may 
seem in this respect, it is at least new. For though 
B\he has given ns a Dictionary of Rhymes, at the end 
of his Art of Poetry, his Dictionary, if it may be called 
so, does not contain six thousand words, when Johnson's 
Dictionary, to which this approaches nearer than any 
other, has very few short of forty thousand.* Here, then, 
as in the French Didionnaire des Rimes of Richelet, the 
whole language is arranged according to its similar end- 
ings, and the English are no longer unfurnished with an 
ance to versification, which Abbe du Bos tells ns 
the French poets Quuiqu'ihen discntils ont tons ce livre 
</<//'x leur arriere cabinet. But had the author seen no 
farther advantage in this work, than barely furnishing 
similar sounds for the purposes of poetry, he should 
have thought his labour ill bestowed. It is by no means 
his intention to vindicate the cause of rhyme to the least 
prejudice of a nobler verse, which is the peculiar glory of 
the English as a living language ; nor will he insist on 
the proofs, both from nature and experience, that rhyme 
may be sometimes admitted to advantage, while Waller, 
Dryden, and Pope are in everybody's hands.f It will 
only be necessary to observe, that, for fear those who 
have been accustomed to the common dictionary of 
rhymes annexed to Bysshe, should find a difficulty in 
discovering words by this new arrangement, an index 
of Rhymes, much more copious and correct than any 
hitherto published, is added, in which the old method of 
classing the words is continued, and a new and nume- 
rous class of allowable rhymes pointed out, with autho* 
rities for their usage from our best poets ; but for a more 
satisfactory account of this part of the work, see the 
Preface to the Index, at the end of this Dictionary. 

Into this edition nearly 1800 additional words have been in- 

t See the subject of rhyme judiciously discussed by Mr. Bice 
in his Art of Heading. 




Among other uses of the Rhyming Dictionary, and 
one that will most commend it to commercial men, is 
the assistance it affords in deciphering errors in tele- 
grams. All merchants having business relations with 
America or the Far East use Telegraph Codes, so 
arranged that each word in their Telegrams represents 
a whole sentence Frequently, however, these words 
are so mutilated in transmission as to be almost unre- 
cognizable. As a rule there is not much difficulty in 
finding the proper word if the ciphers (or symbolical 
words) in the code are alphabetically arranged, unless 
the first letters in it have been altered or lost. It is 
especially in the latter case that this work will be found 
useful, and every merchant who receives Telegrams of 
importance should obtain a copy, and insert in their 
places such proper names or unusual wordr as he may 
be likely to receive in his Telegrams, if he does not find 
them already printed. 

An instance of not uncommon word-mutilation may 
be added to show the value of the book for the purpose 
above-mentioned. In a Telegram received, a word 
appears as " Sterturn." The merchant goes through 
the usual course of looking through his Code for any 
word like this, which will make sense in connection 
with the remainder of the message, and after wasting 
an hour or more in trying to decipher the true meaning, 
is compelled to return the Telegram to the Telegraph 
Company for repetition. 


Probably in the course of the following day he 
receives the amended message, showing that the word 
originally despatched was " Overturn," meaning " Sell- 
to-arrive 1,000 bales Tinnwelly Cotton at 5$ pence per 
pound" By this time, however, the London price has 
declined to 5d. per pound, so that he must either run 
the risk of holding the cotton in a falling market, or 
submit to an immediate loss of 300 on the previous 
day's quotation. Now had this merchant referred to 
this book under the letter N for words ending "erturn," 
he would at once have found the word " Overturn," and 
saved some hundreds of pounds. 

We may explain that such an error as the above is 
not unfrequently caused by incorrect reading of the 
"Morse" alphabet; the letters St being expressed in 

"Morse" by --- and the letter F by , the 

initial " O " was either lost or very likely attached to 
the end of the previous word. 

Thousands of instances of errors and consequent 
heavy losses might be given, but no Merchant or 
Banker requires to be told of them, as they are of 
almost daily occurrence. 

As a further assistance in deciphering badly trans- 
mitted messages, we append the Morse Alphabet, as 
used on almost every Telegraph wire throughout the 
world, and a list of the more common errors occurring 
in Telegrams.

As in other Dictionaries words follow each other in an alphabetical 
order according to the letters they begin with, in this they follow 
each other according to the letters they end with. All words th. i - 
fore that end with a are placed first in this Dictionary, as all those 
that bey in with a are placed first in other Dictionaries ; those that 
end with b are placed next, and so of the rest. The directing let- 
ters at the top of each page, are likewise in the same order ; that 
is, they are the last letters of words instead of the first. 


In looking for a word, the last letter is to be sought first, thr 
last but one next, and so on from the last to the first letters of a 
word in an order exactly contrary to that of other Dictionaries. 
Thus, if I want to find tho won! Idta, I must first look for , 
among those words which end with a ; these I find in the page 
opposite to this. Tho next letter I want is e, I therefore look 
among those words that end with a, for a word whose last letter 
but one is e, and find it in the word PatM&a, the twenty-fourth 
word from the top ; the next leiter d, 1 look for among those word^ 
that end with ea, and find it in the third word after Panacea, which 
is the word I sought. So that ior the last letter of a word, I look 
among those words ending with the same letter ; for the last letter 
but one of a word, I look among tho last letters but one of these 
words, and so of the rest. 

It must be particularly noted, that the directing letters on the 
top of each page, are to be looked for in the same order, that is, 
from the right hund to th- 

The bt >t w.iy to avoid confusion, will be to look for the letters 
one by one, and to begin \vith the first word of every class, and so 
proceed downwards till the word is found. Thus, if I want to find 
the word Alphabet, I keep the last letter t in my mind, and turn 
to that part of the Dictionary wh re the words ending with t arb 
classed, which is near the end. The first word of this class I find 
to be at; the next letter 1 want is e; I therefore run my eye down 
the last letter but one of this class till f come to bet, the next letter 
I want is o, which leads uie to fix my eye upon the fourth letter 
from the last, which brings me to abtt, and so of the rest. 

As this arrangemei.c is perfectly simple, two or three trials will 
render it as intelligible as the common order, especially if the word 
we look for be first written down, and carried along wiih the eyt 
in its search.

With the maid he had woo'd by the Loch's flowry marytltt.
