The object of this little book is to put into the Teacher's hand a Graduated Series of Exercises, intended to accompany his daily instructions in English Grammar and Analysis. They are especially adapted for home tasks, and so divided that each number may generally furnish one good evening's lesson. As I have recommended in the Grammar, that the study of the Analysis of Sentences should begin simultaneously with that of the Parts of Speech, so I should recommend here, that the Exercises in Part I. and Part III. should be commenced together and performed alternately.
The Exercises on the Structure of Words I have put at the end, as they form an entirely separate department of study. I have also appended a pretty full vocabulary of Latin, Greek, and Saxon Roots, to which the scholar can refer in seeking derivations.
The Exercises printed within brackets are somewhat more difficult than the rest, and can be omitted if thought desirable, particularly by the younger scholars.
