Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Nu este ilustrat. 1856 edition. Extras: ...to excuse an incorrect sentence. 985. A figure is the colour or form of speech. 986. One of these is called, "the bringing together of a part and the whole;" and it takes place when a part and the whole occur in the sentence, having between them a weak name, significative of praise or reproach, which is due to the whole and not to the part; as, gwr gwynn ei law; gwraig wenn ei throed; since the Haw (hand) is feminine, and gwynn (white) is masculine, the said white is not attributed to the hand, which is a part of the man, but to the man, who is the whole.

It takes place when the whole is singular, and the parts plural, with a weak name between them, indicative of praise or disparagement, which likewise ought to belong to the whole and not to the part; as, gwr du ei lygaid; gwraig wenn ei dwylaw. Such a form will excuse the existence of a singular and a plural in the same sentence. 988. The third form is called, "seeking." It occurs when there are several persons together in the sentence; as in the following Englyn;--Mi yw'r gwas gweddeiddglas glan, A fydd o fodd ei galon, Dwys gawdd bryd i ddisgwyl bryun O dawl is gwawl yn oes gwenn. The first or second person calls upon the third; but the third cannot call upon either of the others. This form excuses the existence of present and absent in the sentence. 989. The preceding are thus called forms. 990. These are...show more
