This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

P r e f a 



This book is intended for the nse of Englishmen desi- 
. rous of acquiring n knowledge of the German language by 
an easj and sound method, and ii adapted particalarly to 
the nse of those who as yet have not extended tlieir study 
beyond the pronunciation of words , the declension of arti- 
cles ) conjugation of the regular verbs and the translation 
of a few phrases. Schiller's Te 1 1 has been chosen for our 
purpose, because that play is written in a simple style, 
adapted to every age, and highly moral in its principles. 
There is no classic work Ju the whole German literature 
that answers in so high a degree the purposes of the Gran^ 
marian and the monilist. 

The method we have adopted is founded on the Hamil- 
tonian system, and the intelligent reader will easily liUscover 
the motive which has induced us to insist more on rules of 
Grammar than is generally done in works of this kind. En- 
glishmen are not accustomed, by their own language, to 
pay so great an attention to the different cases of declen- 
sion required by verbs and prepositions, as it is necessary 
to do in German ; and as, al tlie same time, the Declen- 
sion of nouns, pronouns and adjectives is one of the gratost 
difficulties in the Utter, we have taken particular care, 



.(jnGoo^Ic 



etpet^ally in tlio first act of the ptay, to give tlte icholar bj 
degrees a tlioroiigli knowledge of them. 

Experience Iiai proved the sure and rapid sacceM to be 
obtained by our method, and after having perused the fol- 
lowing pages , every English reader will find himself able to 
get through every German book without (liSiculty. 



nVTHODVCTIOBr. 



The system of Declensions given here is built on many 
years' experience and on the authority of the best modern 
Grammarians, and will give the reader a facile introduction 
to a part of German Grammar which requires the utmost 
attention and exercice. 



A. DKCLENSION OF SUBSTANTIVES. 

There are two Declensions, the latter of whicb 
four Classes of eiceptions, or Subdivisions.

UmUut. V 

The vowels a, t/ n, an, are often changed in iL,i,&, 
&a , in the plural number of substantives. (So, in English, 
foot has ia the plural number feet; mouse, mice). These 
vowels 3,5,4, flu, are called UmlflUte (changed vowels); 
d is the Umlaut of a; d is the Umlaut of o, etc. 
General rules of Declension, 

1. Feminine nouns ore never changed in the Singular 
number 1 so that the Gen,, Dat. and Ace. cases are like the 
Nominative. 

(Examples. — Decl. 1 : J>ie grou (woman) , bet ^rail, 
ber Jrau, bie ^vant, plur. biegrauen, bergrauen, bengiauen, 
bie granen. Decl. II: t)it 9uft (air), ber Suft, ber iuft, bit 
Swft; plur. bit Hftt, ber ?fifte, ben Sftften, bie SAfte). — 

2. Feminine nqnos belong only to the first and second 
regular Declensions ; except SWiUtcr, ££o<f)ter, which belong 
to Class B. 

n,gN..(JNGOO»^IC 



3> The Aocntative case of neuter gender it niw»js tike 
the Konunative. 

4. The Dative plural termmates alwaj' io «t or tt. 

6. Compound sabstantEvct are, {witli a few exeeptions], 
to be declined, and thtj are generallj of the same gender, 
M the latter part of the composition, (Ai for ex.: £rr 
Korf, coat, II D., Umlaut; ber JgxinSrorf, idem). 

6. No sabsUntJve of Decl. I, CI. C and CI. D, has the 
Umlftut, 

7. The Unttaut can be given onlj' to the last syU - 
lable; or to the penultima, when t n the vowel of the last 
(jrllaWe. (tier Bflttr, plor. tie SSatfr). 

8. There are a good deal of nouns belonging to a cer- 
tain Declension or Subdivision , th»t are as well -declined 
according to another Declension or Subdivision, when bearing 
other terminations in the Nom. case. So trt Qtiafl/ tassel, 
belongs to Decl. II. (beg Sluaftti , plor. bie OuAfle); bie 
Quafle belongs to Decl. I. £er %tli, rock, belongs to 
Decl. I, ber ^elfen to Class B. ^ai ieii, grief, belongs 
to Class C, 'lai itittn to Class B; biT OueO, source, 
fountain, belongt to Class C, blf QurOe to Decl. I.

In the ume way we decline the adjectives preceded by ((in,

nouns. In the plural, Mr and the poss. pron. bearing the 
strong terminations, the adjectives following have the weak.

General Observntions. — 1, Adjectives, when onployed 
as substantives, are to be declined as other adjectives. — 
2, Adjectives, when eonstmed with the verbs fein, to be; 
DMfiini, to become; erfdjeinen, to appear, and others, are 
indeclinable. (For inst. : er ifl g(&d(Ed)). — 3. Adjectives, 
when they ore placed after their substantives , without nn 
article preceding those adjectives, are indeclinable. (For 
inst.! Hi war ein SiaiQ gro^ ttnb mdd|tf f), there was a 
kidg great and mighty]. 



ADVERBS. 

Every adjective may be employed as an adverb. The 
Adverbs are iudecllnabie in German, as iu every language. 



EXPLANATION 

of the signs employed in tbe interlineary translation, 
1. Those words which, being in tbe German text, are 
to be sujtpressed in the English translatioo, are enclosed in 
crotchets. Those words which, not being in the German 
text, must be inserted in the English translation, in order 
to give the true meaning of the phrase, are printed in ita- 
lic letters. 

i. As often as the litteral version does not explain to 
English readers the right meaning of the German phrase, 
we have inserted, in a line between the teit and the ver- 
sion, a free English Irausktion, prihted in italic letters; 
and sometinies we haved added it in particular notes.

llis composition are gettcnilly separated in Uie preient and

The two parb of thitfe sepurable verbs are marked by 
two strokes ttnder tbein> (So for imtnnoc: jc^ flflft unttr,

4. A« it is most etseatiul that tlie Englnk reader 
should pay the greatest attention to the different cBSet of 
Declension, as well as -to the wordi upon which they depend, 
we have carefully eonsidereil that point in the first act of 
our play. V/hereever you find a word governing some ge- 
nitive, dative or accusative case, It is marked with a 
numeral; and ihat word over which you find tbe same 
numeral, with the addition of the syllable Gen., Dat., or
