Grammar Part of a Course on Language free pdf Excerpt from Grammar Part of a Course on Language: Prepared for Instruction in the U. S, Corps of Cadets The present work results from no little observation of the deficiencies attendant upon ordinary grammatical Instruction. In the ordinary grammars, these deficiencies appear to be in the Method, the Classification, the Phraseology, the Multiplication of arbitrary Exceptions, and in the inutility for improvement in other studies. In seeking a remedy, the author has found that the last thing to be sought was innovation. In grammar, this is wholly out of place, for In that subject, over under men's thoughts, the oldest principles are best. These deficiencies are themselves the Innovations. The present work will be found to accord with the earliest and simplest views of grammar. 1. Method. - The material in our common grammars is not liable to censure. The substance of all good grammars must be nearly the same. But the arrangement of that material has been such, that what nature, and reason, and the bewildered pupil demanded first, has been put last. It has been made impossible for the learner to proceed from the known to the unknown. But so to proceed is the indispensable condition for ail human learning. The common method has been to begin with letters- to proceed to syllables- to parts of speech- to sentences- and to do this under the heads of Orthography, Etymology, and Syntax. This method must cause confusion. Under letters, for example, the use of capitals is to be taught. The rule is given that a capital letter is to begin the first word of an independent sentence- proper nouns- common nouns, when personified- and to be used for the pronoun, I, and the Interjection, 0. But the perplexed student has not yet been told of the sentence- nor of nouns, proper and common- nor of pronouns- nor of interjections. This is, certainly, not passing front the known to the unknown. Under nouns, cases arc to be explained. He is told that in the Nominative Case, noun is the subject or a finite verb- and in the Objective, the object of a transitive verb, participle, or preposition. But verbs have not been explained- nor feel, as the contrast to the Infinitive- nor transitive verbs, nor participles, nor prepositions. This, again, 13 not passing from the known to the unknown. The effect of this erroneous method is felt through the whole subject of Grammar. The remedy is a simple one. It is, to begin with the sentence, as the grammatical unit. This is the method adopted in the present work. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
