Description

Excerpt from English Exercises, Adapted to Murrays's English Grammar: Consisting of Exercises in Parsing; Instances of False Orthography; Violations of the Rules of Syntax; Defects in Punctuation; And Violations of the Rules Respecting Perspicuous and Accurate Writing This sentence 1s inaccurate. The words first and rise have here the same meaning and the word such 18 not pro perly applied. The word signifies of that kind: but the author doesnot refer to a kind or Species of barbarity. He means a degree of it: and therefore the word so, instead cf such, ought to have been used. The words cause and gave rise, are also tautological: one of them should, con sequently, be omitted. The sentence corrected would stand thus: This was the original cause of so barbarous a practice; or of a practice so barbarous.
