A NEW EDITION,
WITH EXERCISES IN ANALYSIS AND PARSING,

BY HENRY KIDDLE, A. M.,

SUPERINTENDENT OF COMMON SCHOOLS, NEW YORK CITI.

NEW YORK:
WILLIAM WOOD & 00., 27 GREAT JONES ST.

THE excellence of Brown's GRAMMARS, both as treatises and school books, is very generally acknowledged. The repeated demands, however for a more extended treatment of the “Analysis of Sentences " than wa thought necessary by the author, has induced the publishers to issue a new edition, containing a full ande progressive exposition of this department of grammar, and an entirely new series of exercises and examples, both for analysis and parsing, with observations and references to make them correspond with the body of the work. The exercises in Analysis, and the definitions necessary to explain them, have not been confined to the department of Syntax, as in most other grammatical text-books, but made to commence at a point where the intelligent progress of the pupil seems to demand such aid. In the present edition numerous corrections and alterations have been made, including new lists of Irregular and Redundant Verbs. There has also been added a chapter of Oral Exercises (Appendix V.) intended as an introduction to the study of Grammar, which it is believed will be found serviceable to many teachers. No attempt has been made to change the system of grammar therein explained; because, while no change could possibly accommodate it to the views of all, the intelligent teacher can find no difficulty in varying it, in a few minor particulars, so as to make it correspond with his own views. With these alterations, the publishers hope that these works will be found more useful to the public, and a more valuable aid to teachers in imparting instruction in this important branch of education AUGUST, 1872.
