PREFACE 

In preparing this revision of the " New Era Word Book," 
the author has aimed to meet the requirements of teachers 
who insist that a speller should teach a child pronunciation 
as well as spelling. To this end the words in the " Self- 
Pronouncing Speller " have been diacritically marked and 
syllabicated, so that it will not be found necessary to con- 
sult the dictionary for the pronunciation of any word con- 
tained in it. The latest edition of Webster's Dictionary has 
been followed. The markings are also Webster's, simplified 
so as to be readily understood by the child. The device of 
re-spelling phonetically has not been used except in a few 
cases, the desire being to impress the pupil, as nearly as 
may be, with the form of the word as he will meet it in 
ordinary print. 

The book is divided into eight sections, each section 
adapted to the corresponding grade. It contains some 
eighty-seven hundred words, and, inasmuch as this number 
is not padded by the useless repetition of words combined 
with the various prefixes and suffixes, the speller will be 
found ample for all grammar school needs. 

The simpler words in the first two sections will be found 
especially helpful in fixing an early understanding of the 
diacritical marks. It is urged, therefore, that these two sec- 
tions be used for sight drill in ready pronunciation rather 
than for formal work in spelling. In each section the 



PREFACE 



words are presented alphabetically. It seemed that any 
other arrangement, however fanciful, would detract from 
the value of the book as a speller. This device also ena- 
bles the child readily to find any word, and thus drills him 
in the use of a dictionary. 

The plan in preparing the "Self-Pronouncing Speller" 
has been to present a list of words which are or should be 
in the child's vocabulary, but on the spelling and pronuncia- 
tion of which he should have special drill. It is not intended 
as a treatise on comparative philology, nor an introduction 
to the study of Latin and Greek, nor yet a grammar. It 
omits some material found in other books, much of which 
is useless and distracting with its endless and hopeless de- 
tail. An exception is the insertion of the more common 
rules of spelling, a rule usually following an exercise which 
has disclosed a practical illustration of it. In this respect 
alone does the speller encroach upon the language book. A 
very full list of homophones has been appended, as has also 
a useful table of prefixes and suffixes. The lists of abbre- 
viations found in the original edition have been retained. 
All this supplementary material may be used at the dis- 
cretion of the teacher. 

The wise teacher will give as important a place to 
spelling as to any other study in the curriculum ; the child 
should be kept at spelling until he is able to spell, — both 
orally and in writing. For the oral work a revival of the 
spelling bee cannot be too strongly urged. For the written 
work a substantial blank book is especially recommended, as 
no device will so spur on the child to painstaking care as a 
permanent record of his daily efforts.

a slight 


modification of the 



nary long vowel, occurring in an unaccented syllable. 

The circumflex A below a letter indicates its obscure, 
almost elided, short sound.

SIMPLE RULES OF SPELLING 

I. Words ending in e usually drop the e before a suffh 
beginning with a vowel: as move, moved; moving, movable. 

II. Words ending in ce or ge usually retain the e before th< 
suffixes able and ous : as peace, peaceable ; change, changeable ; out- 
rage, outrageous. 

III. Final e is sometimes retained to prevent a change of pro- 
nunciation, or to preserve the identity of a word : as hoe, hoeing , 
shoe, shoeing; dye, dyeing ; singe, singeing. 

IV. In monosyllables and words accented on the last syllable, 
a final consonant after a single vowel is doubled before a suffix 
beginning with a vowel: as plan, planned ; forgot, forgotten ; fat, 
fattest. 

V. Words accented on the first syllable, ending with a single 
consonant preceded by a single vowel, do not double the final 
consonant before a suffix : as rival, rivaled ; vigor, vigorous ; bene- 
fit, benefited. 

VI. Final y, after a consonant, usually becomes i before a 
suffix not beginning with i : as glory, glorious ; busy, busier ; dainty, 
daintily. 

VII. Final y, preceded by a vowel, is usually retained before 
a suffix : as decay, decaying ; delay, delaying ; employ, employed ; 
annoy, annoyance.

HOMOPHONES 



The following list of homophones consists of words whose use the pupil is quite 
likely to find confusing. They have not been diacritically marked, because most of 
them have already occurred in the body of the book and also because their group- 
ing affords a key to their pronunciation. The definitions are necessarily short, but 
it is believed they will be found perfectly clear. It is suggested that lessons be 
regularly assigned here, a column at a time, and that pupils be required to use 
the homophones in sentences of their own construction. This work, of course, is 
adapted only to the higher grades.
