The Labor-Saving Grammer, Designed for Schools, Families and Private Learners free pdf Excerpt from The Labor-Saving Grammer, Designed for Schools, Families and Private Learners Several years since, I published a work entitled "Grammar Simplified," which claimed the merit of being calculated to impart a knowledge of Grammar with more facility, and in a much shorter time, than any other system ever before published. Many of the first literary men of the day, (among whom were the Presidents and Professors of twenty of our principal Colleges, ) thought its claims were well founded, and recommended the work in a most flattering manner. It was drawn up on a plan entirely original, and so great were the advantages which it offered to beginners, that a competent knowledge of this important branch of education could be acquired from it in three weeks. It was then supposed impossible "to enter the temple of grammatical knowledge by a shorter, more easy, or a more beautiful inlet." But Experience, that best of schoolmasters, has enabled me to present to the public a new and much better system, which imparts as much knowledge in one week, as "Grammar Simplified" does in three. Hence its vast pre-eminence over all other works of the kind. For beginners, it is to all other grammars, what a Railroad Car is, in point of speed, to an Ox Cart! It is constructed upon a plan entirely different, in many respects, from its predecessor, and its method of instruction is much easier and more pleasing, both to teacher and learner. The rapidity and ease with which novices progress from it is so truly astonishing, that it appears almost miraculous. In fact, this hitherto intolerably long and irksome study, is now rendered so very short, interesting and agreeable, that it becomes a mere matter of pleasure and amusement, rather than labor. However incredible it may seem, actual and well-tried experiments have demonstrated that a respectable knowledge of Etymology and Syntax can be acquired from this treatise, with the greatest facility, in the short period of six days to which fact many literary gentlemen can testify. It has also been ascertained, that a hundred can he taught from it, in a class, as easily as a dozen- although ten or fifteen are as many as can profitably be taught at a time, from any other book of the kind - not even excepting "Grammar Simplified." Besides, should any one prefer teaching in the "good old way," it is so arranged that he can be accommodated- while at the same time the drudgery of his pupils will be greatly abridged. It is likewise calculated to be much more useful in families and to private learners, than other Grammars. Having a Key, by which specimens of all the common and critical errors in syntax can be corrected at a glance, it will go very far, even without the aid of a teacher, towards purifying our language from those corruptions and provincialisms, to which all living languages are liable. The "Labor-Saving Grammar" has been submitted to six of our principal Colleges, and all agree in the opinion that it is a great improvement upon "Grammar Simplified," and that it incomparably excels all other systems extant. But notwithstanding the usual method of instruction is exceedingly stupid, and notwithstanding the labor of months, and even years, is now reduced to a delightful study of a few days, yet far be it from me, to detract from the merits of others. I have not labored to subvert systems (many of which are written with great ability, ) but merely to simplify the subject, and to substitute a new and more expeditious mode of teaching. Not to introduce novelties and innovations, but merely to remove the impediments, and clear away the stumbling-blocks from the paths of Grammatical knowledge. Thus, to abridge toil and save cost, in acquiring the rudiments of English Grammar, was the sole object of this publication. In its construction, therefore, I have not found it necessary to indulge in idle theories or visionary speculations, but have adopted the general principles of our most app.
