Book Cover: The Principles of Grammar
Part of the English Grammars series:
Excerpt:

BEING A COMPENDIOUS TREATISE ON THE LANGUAGES, ENGLISH, LATIN, GREEK, GERMAN, SPANISH, AND FRENCH.  FOUNDED ON THE IMMUTABLE PRINCIPLE OF THE RELATION WHICH ONE WORD SUSTAINS TO ANOTHER.

WHEN we inform the student of language, that "one word belongs to another," we have told him all that pertains to language ; for a perfect knowledge of the English, Greek and Latin grammars consists entirely in the ability to give the words, in the respective languages, their proper relation to other words; and ascertain the part of speech, from that relation; therefore, we have, together with a table of relations, advanced a number of THESES, or PROPOSITIONS, which we maintain as fixed and immutable truths; taken entirely from the, Languages themselves, the perusal of which will advertise the scholar of the course pursued throughout the work. Further comment is needless.
