Excerpt from Independent Fifth Reader: Containing a Simple, Practical, and Complete Treatise on Elocution, Illustrated With Diagrams; Select and Classified Readings and Recitations, With Copious Notes, and a Complete Supplementary Index The Treatise on Elocution is simple, comprehensive, and eminently practical, presenting the subject both as a science and an art. The orthoepical division contains instruction in articulation, including phonetic analysis and readings, and sections on syllabication and accent, thus making ample pro visions for the acquisition of all the elements of pronunciation. Expression, the second general division, embraces all the elements that enter into the delivery of entire sentences and extended discourse. The principles and rules are stated in language so succinct and perspicuous that the necessity of exceptions is wholly avoided. Several of the examples for illustration under each section are left unmarked, thus afford ing students opportunities to exercise their judgment, taste, and discrimination.
