To tie Lovers of the French Language.
.IN an age when fuccefsful efforts have been
made towards the improvemeut of lit art of Think
an J wh;'n Analyjii has been discovered the
umverla!, and iolc good method to improve all
fcieiice»/,«nd revive iiutrudion in them, it may
be a matter of atiomfhment that it has not been
yet generally , mbraced,and rendered the familiar
method of learning. The extraordinary rife and
progrefsof Chymillry, within a very few years,
are entirely due t« analysis; but there is an art on
which it lhould have firft darted its beneficial rays,
1 allude to the 'Teaching of I.angvages. la fa&, Na
ture, this excellent analyfl, wa. before our «ye»
guiding children in learning the language of their i
mother, and .110 ahild ever failed in acquiring it,
profiting furprifiMgly by her unerring lessons
Fully convinced by tea'oh and experience, thit
the lame method she pursues fhonld he followed as
neaily as poOihle, I adopted, in (;hc courts of my
inflru&ions, such books ellaMiHicd on principles
that lead deviate 1 from her simple di&ates. I soon
perceived that the method acquired from thefeaid*
was but a very inegular and imperfeft Analysis
—l,therforc, rcfolved though with a very small
confidence in my (lender abilities, but an Hunted
with zeal lor the improvement of these who may
wish tr> learn' French from me, to undertake the
laborious and arduous talk of writing a work,groun
ded or Analytical principle, which miflit com
prehendwhat is wifhedf»r by thofeapplying them
selves to the study of . the living languages, end
am happy to fay, I have now nearly concluded it.
It confittt.qf three parts
The first, 19 acholen Votabulary of words most
frsquently «fed infpeech, containining I,soo—the
most natural acceptation of each is determined by
a phrase prefixed to it.
The second, contains the French verbs, both re
gular and irregular, from a new fjstem in which
the principal difficulties attending conjugation arc
first explained, and observations giv?n on the use
of each fenfe,-illustrated by proper examples, fa
as to enable the learner to exprel* himfelt with
The third, is a complete list of those words fir
•vant delicti ou de complement defens entre let autres parclct
du dfcours: that is to fay—/irraiof the link or comple
tion of sense between the other parts of fpeecb, whole
principal use is to eitablilti in I'peech that connedti
,on between words, which already exists in the
mifid between ideas. 1 haw also fully determined
' the sense and acception of these important words
(which are divided into appropriate claftes to fix
them the easier in the memory) by annexing to
each examples in French and English.
Aa Ido not intend to publish the above,for some
time, and in order, nevertheless, that my pupils
may reap the fame advantage without it, I hasten
to inform those who may be induced to put them
selves under my care, that half the time ofi'chool
(the hall being devoted to other exercises)
will be employed m exercising them in the fol
lowing manner:—
We firit btjjiu with the Vocabulary; each word
of which will be pronounted in Englilh then ia
French, to be repeated by one or more of the fcho •
lars; and a similar.repetition of the phrases before
mentioned will follow.
It is worthy of obfe-vation, that in our infan
cy, and as we advance in years, We learn the 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 ndceffaty knowledge of it. The rules given
by Grammarians to attain this objeA are ainost
useless to us, and still more so to the foreigners,
struggling in vain to learn the true pronunciation
of a iauguage with the help of diitionaries and
Grammar alone. Though I conceive my scholars
may attain in the above manner, the accurate
pronouncia'ion of the French language, yet striil
attention is paid to their reading in approved au
thors before we begin the foregoing excrcifcs.
I will pursue nearly the sam .' method in impart
ing to them the «ont»nts of the two other divisions
of my work. I cannot conclude this address with
out thanking my Fellow-Citizen* for the liberal
encouragement I have experienced from them,
thefs (ix years past, in my profeffional career,pre
fumir.g that I may be permitted to fay, that I have
not been altogether undeserving of it.
