ADDRESS. IN an age when fuccefsful efforts have been made towards the improvement of the art of Think ing, and when Analyst has been discovered the univerlal, and Cole good method to improve all fcierces, and receive mfruilion in t'em, it may be a itiatter of atlonifhment that it has not been yet generally embraced, and rendered the familiar method of learning. The extraordinary rife and progress of Chytnillry, within a very few yevs, are entirely due t# analysis j but there is an art on which it ihould have fir it darted its beneficial rays, I allu ;e to the Teaching of Languages la f?<si, Na ture, this excellent analylt, was before onr eyes guiding children in learning the langmgs of their mother, and no ahild ever failed in acquiting it, profiting furprilmgly by her unerring IcfTons— 1 Fully convinced by rea'on and experience, thic the tame method flie pursues fbould be followed as neatly as pofiible, I adopted, in thr courfs ot my inflruilioiii, such he ellablifhed .• n principles that Lad deviated from her simple didlates. I foori perceived that the method acquired from thefeaids was hut,a very irregular and imperfect Analysis —l, therfore, rtfolved though with a very small confidence in my slender abilities, but animated with zeal or the improvement of thofc who may wilh to learn French from me, to undertake the la' orious and ar >im;> talk ofwritinga worh,groun ded or. Analytical principle*, which might com prehend what.iswifhedfar by thofeapplying them felvei to the ftvirfy of the living languiges, and am happy to fay, I have now nearly concluded it. It confifls of three parts The first, is a chosen Vocabulary of words most fraquently used infpeech, conuir.ining i.fco —the m >st natural acceptation of each is determined by a phrsfe prefixed to it. The second, contains the French verbs, both re gular and irregular, from a new fjstem in which V the principal difficulties attending eonjugation are first explained, and observations given on the ule cf each sense, illustrated by proper examples, so as to enable the learner to exprels himfelf with precifiiß. TJhe third, is a complete list of those words fcf* vant de her. ou de complement de fens entre let autres partite Jit Jif r ,i/ri : that 1' to fly —forming the link or comple tion of ftnfe hetiveen the other parts cf fpeecb t whole principal u.c is to establilfc in fpceeh that conneefti oii between v?r :s, which already exists in the mind brtween ideas. 1 haw also fully determined the fcpife and 1 acception of these impsrtant words (\vH hare divided into appropriate claiTes to fix them the e-Jier in the memory) by annexing to each examples in French and English. As Ido not intend topublilh the above,for fame t :;t , tud in ( lder, i ev^rih. ; lef-, that my pupils may reap thefame advantage without it, I hasten to inform ihofe who may he induced to put them selves under my e tc, th ' r hJI the time of school (the cth«r half devsted to other exercises) will be employed in exercising them in the fol lowing manner:— We first begin with the Vocabulary; each word of which will l« pronounced in Englilh then ia French, to h' rrwn d one or mme n( the Scho lars; atid a finiilar repetition of the phrases before mentioned will follow. It is worthy of observation, that in our infen cy, at .1 as v e advance in years, we learn the pro nourciation of our vernacular tongue, by pro nouncing word by word; and 4na'ogy accomfdifh e--.v':.i remains to b • done, in crder to acquire the neceffarv knowledge of it. The rules given by'Graivmarians to attain this olj-dl are almost u'clcis to ti'", and ii 1 more so to th° foreigners, struggling in vain to learn the true pronunciation of a language with the help of didtionaries and Grimni.'r alone, t rough I conceive my fcholart may attain in the above manner, the accurate pronoenciation of the French language, yet stri<£t attention is paid to their reading in approved au thors before we begin the foregoing exercises. 1 will pursue nearly thefam- method in impart ing to them the «ont«nts ol the two other divifi. n» ot mv work. I cannot conc'ude this addrefswith out thanking my Fellow-Citizens for the liberal encouragement I have experienced from them, , rhefs fix year-past, in my proleffional career,pre fumir.g that I may be permitted to fay, that 1 have □ot been altogether undeserving of it.
