PREFACE

In this revision of Harvey's "Practical Grammar" all the good features of the older edition have been retained, while much new matter has been added to meet the modern demands. Changes in method of presentation have been made wherever simplification seemed desirable. In the work as remodeled, the inductive and deductive principles are both applied, the advantages peculiar to each method being thereby secured.

Owing to the close interrelation of syntax and etymology, it is impossible to give a complete treatment of either, independent of the other. Hence, in this revision, a preliminary chapter has been added in which the elements of syntax and etymology are combined, as a preparation for the fuller treatment of both subjects later. are incorporated with the lessons in syntax. the pupil both in acquiring and in expressing a knowledge of syntactical relations.

They aid

A thorough topical review of the points of chief practical value is afforded by the "Rules" given in the chapter on syntax; a valuable exercise of logical power is provided in the lesson upon "Words variously Classified," and a thorough drill in correct usage is given in the exercises under "Cautions."
