Էջ xix - How lov'd, how honour'd once, avails thee not, To whom related, or by whom begot ; A heap of dust alone remains of thee, 'Tis all thou art, and all the proud shall be ! Poets themselves must fall, like those they sung, Deaf the prais'd ear, and mute the tuneful tongue.
Էջ xviii - A certain number of syllables connected, form a foot. They are called feet, because it is by their aid that the voice, as it were, steps along through the verse, in a measured pace ; and it is necessary that the syllables which mark this regular movement of the voice, should, in some manner, be distinguished from the others. This distinction was made among the ancient Romans, by dividing their syllables into long and short, and ascertaining their quantity, by an exact proportion of time in sounding...
Էջ xix - In the days of old Fables plainly told. 3. The third species consists of three trochees : as, When our hearts are mourning : or of three trochees, with an additional long syllable : as, Restless mortals toil for nought ; Bliss in vain from earth is sought ; Bliss, a native of the sky, Never wanders.

Էջ 235 - Tout le monde se plaint de sa mémoire, et personne ne se plaint de son jugement.
Էջ xviii - English, syllables are divided into accented and unaccented ; and the accented syllables being as strongly distinguished from the unaccented, by the peculiar stress of the voice upon them, are equally capable of marking the movement, and pointing out the regular paces of the voice, as the long syllables were by their quantity, among the Romans.
Էջ xxv - D, at the beginning of a word, is sounded nearly as in English, but is pronounced with the tip of the tongue against the upper teeth, while in pronouncing the English d, the tongue is made to touch the roof of the mouth. At the end of a syllable, or between two vowels, d, in Spanish, sounds like the English th in this, but is somewhat softer.
