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.

The population of Rouen is supposed to be full one hundred thousand souls. In truth, there is no end to the succession of human beings. They swarm like bees, and like bees are busy in bringing home the produce of their industry. You have all the bustle and agitation of Cheapside and Cornhill; only that the ever-moving scene is carried on within limits one-half as broad.

This will remind you of Jervas’s celebrated piece of nonsensical flattery to himself—­when, on Pope’s complimenting that artist upon one of his portraits, he compassionately exclaimed “Poor little Tit!” Surely all these national prejudices are as unwise as they are disgusting. Of Gerard, I would wish to speak with respect; but an artist, who receives from fifteen to twenty thousand francs for the painting of a whole length portrait, stands upon an eminence which exposes him to the observation of every man. In the same degree, also, does his elevation provoke the criticism of every man.

This is a historical book. He anticipated the law of refraction, corresponded with Kepler, observed comets, and may have been the first to recognize that the straight line paths of comets might be segments of elongated ellipses. The lost ‘ephemera’ referred to in the text have since been found (since 1876) and a conference was held in 1970 at the University of Delaware on the current state of Hariot research, the proceedings of which have been published by the Oxford University Press, where one may find a fairly current view of the historical record.

Esta edição é de 1885, da Imprensa Nacional de Lisboa. Nela, define-se a ortografia portuguesa como o sistema de escrita ou grafia representante comum de todos os dialetos do português falado. A sua base é a história da linguagem portuguesa considerada como língua e como dialeto: Como língua, estuda-se a linguagem portuguesa no ponto de vista de língua fundamental ou língua mãe, que, por evolução própria, se derivaram outros modos de falar no tempo e no espaço, depois de assentada a evolução glotológica realizada em Portugal durante mais de um século desde D. Dinis, e principalmente durante os reinados de D. Pedro I, D. Fernando I e D. João I. Como dialeto, estuda-se a linguagem portuguesa como evolução glotológica neo-latina ou românica.

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.

上亲郊郊庙,册文皆曰‘恭荐岁事’。先景灵宫,谓之‘朝献’;次太庙,谓之‘朝飨’;末乃有事于南郊。予集《郊式》时,曾预讨论,常疑其次序,若先为尊,则效不应在庙后;若后为尊,则景灵宫不应在太庙之先。求共所从来,盖有所因。按唐故事,凡有事地上帝,则百神皆预遣使祭告,唯太清宫、太庙则皇帝亲行。其册祝皆曰‘取某月某日有事于某所,不敢不告。’宫、庙谓之‘奏告’,余皆谓之‘祭告’。唯有事于南郊,方为‘正祠’。至天宝九载,乃下诏曰:‘“告”者,上告下之词。今后太清宫宜称“朝献”,太庙称“朝飨”。’自此遂失‘奏告’之名,册文皆为‘正祠’。

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.

Wenn die Patrioten bisher über die Kluft der Stände, die Rohheit und Unempfänglichkeit Volkes in Niedersachsen mit Recht bittere Klage führten, oder im Großen Verbesserungspläne entwarfen, so stand ihnen die niedersächsische oder plattdeutsche Volkssprache nur sehr im Hintergrunde und kam weder im Guten, noch im Bösen so recht in Betracht. Ich glaube nachzuweisen, ja mit Händen greiflich zu machen, daß sie die Wurzel alles Übels, der Hemmschuh alles Bessern ist. Gehe hin, meine kleine Schrift, und spreche! Drei Dinge wünsche ich dir, Flügel, Feinde und Freunde. Die Flügel wünsche ich dir, damit du dich nach allen Seiten verbreitest, die Feinde und Freunde, damit du nach alten Seiten besprochen wirst.
