To tie Lovers of the French Language.
IN an age when fuccefsful efforts have been
made towards the improvemeut of the art of Think
wg, and when Analyfu has been the
umverfal, and sole good method to improve all
luences, and receive inftruvSion in t'em, it may
be a matter of altomfhment that it has not been
yet generally embraced, and rendered the fam.liar
method of learning. The extraordinary rife and
progrefsof Chymillry, within a very few years
are entirely due te analysis; but there is an art on
which it should have firtt darted its beneficial ray,,
[allude: to tbe Teaching of Lavage. ! n f a<a Na _
tare this excellent analyst, was before our eyes
guiding children in learning the language of their
mother, and no shild ever failed in acquiring it
profiting surprisingly by her unerring lcffon®
Fully convinced by realon and experienci, that
the fame method ftie pursues ihsuld be followed as
neailyas possible, I adopted, in the course of my
.naruaions, such. books elUblifhed on principles
that least deviated from her simple didate.. I loon
perceived that the method acquired from thefeaids
was but* very irregular and imperfed Anatyfis
I, rherlore, refulved though with a very small
confidence in my slender abilities, but animated
with zeal lor the improvement of choft who may
wish to learn French from me, to undertake the!
laborious and arduous tafcofwritinga work,groun
ded on Analytical principle, which m.Jht com
prehend what 11i wished f.r l,y thofeapplying them
selves to the fiudy of the living language, anct
am happy to fay, I have cow nearly concluded it,
It conufts of three part*.
The first is a chosen Vocabulary of words most
frequently used infpe#ch, coutaininiiir I,soc—the
most natural acceptatioa of each is determined by
a pnrale prefixed to it.
The fecond,contains the French verbs, both re
gular and irregular, from a new system in which
the principal difficulties attending eonjugation are
first explained, and observations gi»en on the use
of each sense, illustrated by proper examples, so
as to enable the learner to expreis himfelf with
The third, is a complete list of those words ser
vant de lien ou de complement defen, entre les autre, tarda
du difcours : that is to fay—forming the lint or comple
tion of sense bet-wee* the other farts of fpeeoh, whose
principal use is to establifa i n speech that connecti
on between words, which already exi.it in the
mind between ideas. I ha w also fully determined
the fehfe and acception of theie important words
(which are divided into appropriate clafles to fix.
them the easier in the memory) by annexing to
each examples in French and Engliflr.
As Ido not intend to publish the above,for feme
time, and in order, Reverthelefs, that my pupils
may reap the fame advantage without it, I hasten
to inform those who may be induced to put them
fe'.ves under my care, that half the time of school
(the othsr half being devoted to other exercises)
will be employed in exercising them in the fol
lowing manner
We first begin with the Vocabulary; each wor4
of which will be pronounced in Englilh then is
French, to be repeated by one or msre of the fcho -
lars; and a similar repetition of the phrases betore
mentioned will follow.
It is worthy of observation, that in onr infan
cy, and as we advance in years, we lears thd pro
nounciation of our vernacular tongue, by pro
nouncing word by word ; and Analogy accomplic
es what remains to be done, in order to acquire
the necessary knowledge of it. The rules give*
by Grammarians to attain this obje<sl are almost
ufeleft to us, and still mere so to the foreigners,
struggling in vain to learn the true pronunciation
of a lauguage with the help of dicftionaries and
Grammar alone. Though I conceive my scholars
may attain in the above manner, the accurate
pronunciation of the French language, yet stri&
attention is paid to their reading in approved aa
thors before we begin the foregoing excrcifes.
1 will pursue nearly tbefame method in impart
ing to them the «ont«nts of the two other divisions
ot my work. I cannot conclude this address with
out thanking my Fellow-Citizens for the liberal
encouragement i hav« experienced from them,
thefs f.x years past, in my profeflional career,pre
fumir.g that I may be permitted to fay, that I have
not been altogether undeserving of it.
