At the same time, we are fully convinced that the cause of these obstructions does not exist so much in the subject of Grammar itself, as in the manner in which the subject has been treated. Although we have examined upwards of thirty differ ent English Grammars, we have not seen one adapted to the capacity of children: they are all decidedly too technical, evenin their very first lessons, and consequently too abstruse for the use of children. They demand an amount of knowledge in children of seven or eight years, which is rarely possessed by youths of twelve or fourteen.* It is very important that children should commence their grammatical studies early. Vulgaris ms and other improprieties of speech, as well as imperfections in Orthography and Syntax, when once acquired, are very tenacious, and can never be thoroughly eradicated.
It is, therefore, highly desirable that an elementary book on English Grammar, at once easy and interesting, should be placed in the hands of our younger pupils: such a book is an important desideratum. It is confidently hoped that this desideratum will be adequately supplied by the present publication.
