This grammar is intended for students who have already received instruction in the rudiments. Still, every such textbook must begin at the beginning. Part One, therefore, which occupies pp. 1-24, gives a succinct treatment of the Parts of Speech in theS entence and of their substitutes, the Phrase and the Clause, concluding with aS ummary of Definitions. Thus it clears the way for what follows, and may be utilized as a review, if the student needs to refresh his memory. Part Two deals specifically and fully with Inflections andS yntax (pp. 25-182). It includes also a chapter on the use of subordinate clauses as nouns, adjectives, and adverbs (pp. 157- 162), as well as a chapter in which such clauses are logically classified in accordance with their particular offices in the expression of thought (pp. 163-182). Part Three (pp. 183-226) develops the subject of Analysis in its natural order, first explaining how sentences are put together, and then illustmting the process by which they may be resolved into their constituent parts. Modifiers and Complements are classified, and the so-called Independent Elements are discussed. There is added a special chapter on Combinar tions of Clauses, in which the grammatical and logical relations of coordination and subordination are set forth, and their functions in the effective use of language are considered. This portion of the book, it is hoped, will be especially useful to students of English composition. The Appendix furnishes lists of verbs, tables of conjuga tion, rules for capitals and marks of punctuation, a summary; of important rules of syntax, and a brief history of theE nglish lajiguage.
