PREFACE.

This manual, called forth by the demands of the author's classes in the State Normal School, and Teachers' Institutes, and by the appeals of numerous correspondents for aid in the solution of difficult questions in grammatical analysis, has been prepared with sole reference to what has thus seemed to be an existing want among those pursuing that study, and making use of the excellent treatises of Prof. Clark,

It presents, in an available form, some of the results of over twelve years' experience in teaching English Grammar on the basis of a logical, or, more exactly, a functional analysis, most of which have been successfully tested in the class-room, and have elicited the hearty approval of earnest and thoughtful students elsewhere.

While primarily restricted to the consideration of the diagrams, it will be seen that its discussions and illustrations, and especially the outlines of classification, and the examples for practice in Part III., involve, to a marked extent, the system and the philosophy of grammatical analysis itself. This has been rendered unavoidable by the facts, that the proper construction of a diagram is always expository of the proper analysis, and that, in no way, short of a complete treatise on grammatical

analysis itself, to which this work is really preparatory, could the required aid in practice be so completely furnished.

With this last object in view, the author has spared no pains in the endeavor to make Part III., as an outline of classification, and a collection of examples for practice, as complete and exact as possible. And, without intending any disparagement of the works of others, least of all, of those of the author of the system herein advocated, it is believed that this portion of the work will be found to be the most systematic and complete Exercise Book extant. As such, it is also believed, that it can not but be of eminent service to all who are pursuing the study of English Grammar, not even excepting those who are only familiar with the current text-books on the old system.

However all this may be, the book is now committed to those for whom it has been prepared, in the earnest hope that it will both add to their knowledge of the English sentence, and deepen their interest in the systematic study of its scientific analysis.
