HON. SECRETARY OF THE "GERMAN TEACHER'S ASSOCIATION" (VEREIN
DEUTSCHER LEHRER IN ENGLAND);
As the Ornaments of Language form so considerable an element in every tongue, and so much uncertainty still exists as to their classification and use, I have undertaken to present them, systematically arranged, in an easy and perspicuous form.
It has been particularly my endeavour to make the definitions throughout as plain as possible, and to illustrate them by a large number of examples from a great variety of sources.
A series of exercises has been added; these will not only constitute a test as to whether the subject has been thoroughly understood, but are also calculated to make the study of it more interesting.
London, January 1885.
