Missing punctuationhas been supplied silently, but all other errors have been left uncorrected.To let the reader distinguish such problems from any inadvertenttranscription errors that remain, I have inserted notes to flag items thatappear errors by Brown's own standard. Spellings that are simply differentfrom current practice, e.g., 'Shakspeare' are not noted. Special characters:vowels with macrons are rendered with an equals sign (=) before the vowel.Vowels with breve marks are rendered with tildes (~) before thevowels.--KTH.

BERRIAN, A. M.PREFACEThe present performance is, so far as the end could be reached, thefulfillment of a design, formed about twenty-seven years ago, of one daypresenting to the world, if I might, something like a complete grammar of the English language;--not a mere work of criticism, nor yet a work tootame, indecisive, and uncritical; for, in books of either of these sorts, ourlibraries already abound;--not a mere philosophical investigation of what isgeneral or universal in grammar, nor yet a minute detail of what forms onlya part of our own philology; for either of these plans falls very far short of such a purpose;--not a mere grammatical compend, abstract, orcompilation, sorting with other works already before the public; for, in theproduction of school grammars, the author had early performed his part;and, of small treatises on this subject, we have long had a superabundancerather than a lack.After about fifteen years devoted chiefly to grammatical studies andexercises, during most of which time I had been alternately instructing
