A new guide to the English tongue: in five parts.
|Secondary Title||Containing, I. Words, both common and proper, from one to six syllables: the several sorts of monosyllables in the common words being distinguished by tables, into words of two, three, and four letters, &c. with six-short lessons at the end of each table, not exceeding the order of syllables in the foregoing tables. The several sorts of polysyllabics also being ranged in proper tables, have their syllables divided, and directions placed at the head of each table for the accent, to prevent false pronunciation; together with the like number of lessons on the ... tables, placed at the end of each table, as far as to words of four syllables, for the faster and more speedy way of teaching children to read. II. A large and useful table of words, that are the same in sound, but different in signification; very necessary to prevent the writing one word for another of the same sound. III. A short, but comprehensive grammar of the English tongue, delivered in the most familiar and instructive method of question and answer; necessary for all such persons as have the advantage, only of an English education. IV. An useful collection of sentences in prose and verse, divine, moral, and historical; together with a select number of tables, adorn'd with proper sculptures, for the better improvement of the young beginners. And V. Forms of prayer for children, on several occasions. The whole, being recommended by several clergymen and eminent schoolmasters, as the most useful performance for the instruction of youth, is designed for the use of schools, in Great Britain, Ireland, and in the several English colonies and plantations abroad. The thirty-eighth-edition. By Thomas Dilworth. Author of the schoolmasters assistant; young book-keepers assistant, &c. &c. and schoolmaster in Wapping.|
