Samuel Johnson - A Grammar of the English Tongue artwork A Grammar of the English Tongue
Samuel Johnson
Genre: Foreign Languages

Seller: Public Domain

Samuel Johnson was a well-known literary figure in England. Johnson was an author, lexicographer, biographer and critic. Johnson has been quoted more than any other English author with the exception of Shakespeare. Much of Johnson's fame is attributed to the biography done by Boswell. The biography centers on the latter part of Johnson's life, thus Johnson has been seen more as a gruff society figure than as the struggling and poverty-stricken writer that he was for much of his life. Johnson states that grammar is the art of using language correctly.

Money is the medium by which we may acquire from others, who are willing to part with them, such things as we may desire. The price of an article is the value set upon it by the possessor, as represented by an expressed sum in money.

À. Cette préposition est souvent employée deux fois pour un même régime ou complément1, et c'est alors une faute. Boileau, si rigoureux observateur des regles de la langue françoise et du goût, a fait un solécisme dans le premier vers d'une de ses plus belles épîtres: C'est à vous, mon Esprit, à qui je veux parler.

Henry Jenner - A Handbook of the Cornish Language artwork A Handbook of the Cornish Language
Henry Jenner
Genre: Foreign Languages
Publish Date: 01 January 1934
Publisher: Public Domain
Seller: Public Domain

This book is principally intended for those persons of Cornish nationality who wish to acquire some knowledge of their ancient tongue, and to read, write, and perhaps even to speak it. Its aim is to represent in an intelligible form the Cornish of the later period, and since it is addressed to the general Cornish public rather than to the skilled philologist, much has been left unsaid that might have been of interest to the latter, old-fashioned phonological and grammatical terms have been used, a uniform system of spelling has been adopted, little notice has been taken of casual variations, and the arguments upon which the choice of forms has been based have not often been given.

Robert Seymour Bridges - A Practical Discourse on Some Principles of Hymn-Singing artwork A Practical Discourse on Some Principles of Hymn-Singing

Genre: Reference
Publish Date: 01 January 1930

What St. Augustin says of the emotion which he felt on hearing the music in the Portian basilica at Milan in the year 386 has always seemed to me a good illustration of the relativity of musical expression; I mean how much more its ethical significance depends on the musical experience of the hearer, than on any special accomplishment or intrinsic development of the art. Knowing of what kind that music must have been and how few resources of expression it can have had, being rudimental in form, without suggestion of harmony.

It is because I feel a deep and tender interest in your present and eternal welfare that I am willing thus publicly to address you. Some of you have loved me as a relative, and some have felt bound to me in Christian sympathy, and Gospel fellowship; and even when compelled by a strong sense of duty, to break those outward bonds of union which bound us together as members of the same community, and members of the same religious denomination, you were generous enough to give me credit, for sincerity as a Christian, though you believed I had been most strangely deceived. I thanked you then for your kindness, and I ask you now, for the sake of former confidence, and former friendship, to read the following pages in the spirit of calm investigation and fervent prayer. It is because you have known me, that I write thus unto you.
