Excerpt from Primer of Elocution and Action XIX. This will, it is believed, aid in keeping each subject more completely apart from the others than if the ordinary method of numbering were followed. Little will be found here relating to emotional ex pression; such work belongs to a later period of mental development than was contemplated in pre paring this manual. The painful exhibition of preco cions, hot-house passion has no part in the author's scheme of education. Even those of more mature years who may find this manual useful are advised to thoroughly master its precepts before e saying higher flights. The great essential is a solid foundation of conversational delivery. Emotion that is, genuine will find its own outlet, if the channels of expression are free.

Excerpt from Elocution and Action I do not advocate memorizing the lessons. Theconstant necessity for applying the instructions to the practical work of expression will soon fix in the pupil's mind all that is of importance. Discuss thoroughly each chapter, multiplying the illustrations and trying to lead the pupil to work out for himself, if possible, the solution of the problems under consideration. Exercises relating to a particular subject are num bered consecutively throughout the book without re gard to other exercises that may intervene. For instance, under Breathing, Exercises 1, 2, and 3 will be found in Lesson IV, and 4, 5, 6, and 7 in Lesson XIX. This will, it is believed, aid in keeping each subject more completely apart from the others than if the ordinary method of numbering were followed.

Excerpt from Vocal and Action-Language, Culture and Expression Many of my pupils have repeatedly requested me to print for reference the matter on elocution as I have given it in class and private instruction. With this in view, and hoping to benefit professional speakers and others, I venture to make public the subject as it has been received from the best sources in this country, which I am assured, upon the most reliable evidence, affords opportunities superior to those of any other in the world. My aim has been simply to make a concise and practical handbook on elocution, adapted especially, to the needs of those who have had no adequate instruction or practice in an art which they must use as readers, speakers, or teachers. I lay no claim to original discovery, except in minor instances; but claim the advantage of having proven in teaching the value of the method and practice herein presented. If the analysis and arrangement are valuable, I shall have accomplished something; for no book, yet published, systematically presents the whole subject. The authorities for the facts contained in these pages are specialists in their departments. This will make the contents of standard value. I would gratefully acknowledge my obligation to my former teachers, prominent among whom were Prof. L. B. Monroe and Dr. Charles A. Guilmette (now deceased) and Dr. C. W. Emerson. I would here offer thanks to Dr. Martin, of Johns Hopkins University, for permission to use figures from his excellent work on "The Human Body," and to Messrs. Henry Holt & Co., publishers, for plates of the same. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Based on empirical data from five classical texts, this study investigates flexibility of parts of speech in Classical Chinese. The findings suggest that flexibility in a parts-of-speech system can only be fully understood by integrating a wide range of aspects. The components needed to account for it include constructions, semantics, metonymies, metaphors, pragmatic implicatures – and world knowledge as reflected within a given culture.

Excerpt from The Rise and Decline of the Free Trade Movement The story of the rise and decline of the Free Trade movement has a practical bearing which renders it a matter of general interest at the present time; but it has also a special attraction for students of political phenomena. The agitation may be said to have been unique, for it had its basis in a scientific doctrine. The history of all ages of the world has shewn the play of human aspirations and passions, of racial an tipathies and moral ideals; but it was left for the eighteenth century to make a great advance in formu lating the knowledge of human society and of the conditions of its prosperity. The Free Trade move ment as a political force owed its strength to the fact that it had a scientific character: this seems also to account for its limitations and defects.

Excerpt from Lessons in Elocution, or a Selection of Pieces in Prose and Verse, for the Improvement of Youth in Reading and Speaking The dificulty of describing action by Words, will be allowed by every one; and if we were never to give any instructions, but such as should completely answer our wishes, this difficulty would be a good reason for not at tempting to give any description of it. But there are many degrees between conveying a precise idea of a thing and no idea at all. Besides, in this part of deliv ery, instruction may be conveyed by the eye and this organ is a much more rapid vehicle of knowledge than the ear. This vehicle is addressed on the present occasion and plates, representing the attitudes which are described are annexed to the several descriptions, which it is not doubted, will greatly facilitate the reader's conception.

Excerpt from The Philosophy of Voice: Showing the Right and Wrong Action of Voice in Speech and Song; With Laws for Self-Culture A thrush perched at the top of an ash-tree in my garden begins pouring out its full ecstasy of song at daybreak, and, with slight intervals for refreshment, ends at sunset. This will go on for two months or so, without the slightest appearance of fatigue or the slightest sign of loss of tone in voice. This is the mode of voice-production that in the following treatise I have endeavoured to induce in human beings, and define its cause. A singular proof of the use of caverns as resonators multiplying sound is found in those birds whose voices are comparatively fixed, such as the common wild duck. There is no capacity of contraction or expansion as there is in us, for the space is bone, and hen birds have it not.
