Ch, in some French words not yet assimilated, sounds like sh, as machine, chaise. Ti before a vowel has the sound of si, as salvation, except an s goes before, as question, excepting likewise derivatives from y, as mighty, mightier. Released during the early 18th century, the book contains Brightland's writings on the techniques of developing the English language through improvement of grammatical skills in the midth century. Some late innovators have ejected the u, without considering that the last syllable gives the sound neither of or nor ur, but a sound between them, if not compounded of both; besides that they are probably derived to us from the French nouns in eur, as honeur, faveur.

U is followed by e in virtue, but the e has no sound. H is a note of aspiration, and shows that the following vowel must be pronounced with a strong emission of the breath, at hat, horse. Ph is used for f in words derived from the Greek, as philosopher, philanthropy, Philip. Abstract names, as blackness, witchcraft, virtue, vice, beauty, ugliness, love, hatred, anger, goodnature, kindness. Did you see the green worm going towards the green glass glass?

In the time of Charles I. C is now mute. I consider the English alphabet only as it is English, and even in this narrow view I follow the example of former grammarians, perhaps with more reverence than judgment, because by writing in English I suppose my reader already acquainted with the English language; and because of sounds in general it may be observed, that words are unable to describe them. The archduchesses socks: are they dry?

A grammar of the French tongue book

But whensoever you have occasion to trouble their patience, or to come among them being troubled, it is better to stand upon your guard, than to trust to their gentleness. And, you guessed it, this is done with different verbs.

In treating on the letters, I shall not, like some other grammarians, enquire into the original of their form as an antiquarian; nor into their formation and prolation by the organs of speech, as a mechanick, anatomist, or physiologist; nor into the properties and gradation of sounds, or the elegance or harshness of particular combinations, as a writer of universal and transcendental grammar.

B has one unvaried sound, such as it obtains in other language. It is used before r, as draw, dross; and w, as dwell. This serves a two-fold purpose: first, I can sublimate my irrational anger towards the procurement of knowledge; second, by reading about wise people and their works that reflect their wisdom, I become humbled as I am reminded that I still have much to learn about the synthesis of perfect sentences.

So He giveth fodder for the cattle, and green herbs for the use of man; that is, for those beings that are cattle, and his use that is man.

At length Erasmus, that great injur'd name, The glory of the priesthood, and the shame, Stemm'd the wild torrent of a barb'rous age, And drove those holy Vandals off the stage.

In monosyllables a single vowel before a single consonant is short, as stag, frog. Th has two sounds; the one soft, as thus, whether; the other hard, as thing, think. It sounds like z before ion, if a vowel goes before, as intrusion; and like s, if it follows a consonant, as conversion.

Ch is sounded like k in words derived from the Greek, as chymist, scheme, choler. It introduces more than verbs, presented in order of importance. An is still used before the silent h, as an herb, an honest man: but otherwise a; as, A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.

But if to love disloyalty it be, Shall I then hate her, that from deathes door Me brought? Many of the books made use of the "Egalitarian" and "Utilitarian" method.
