Not illustrated. 1897 edition. Excerpt: ...where-ever welcome with-reference-to with-respec t-to comm on wealth. 14 Every where-else it-is-worth-while is-it-worth-while on-one side that-is-only this-one-thing when-they-were. 15 Whereby-you-may as-well-as worse-and-worse with-one working-classes works-of-God. EXPLANATORY. W is expressed b3r a small initial hook when it occurs before L, Bay, M or N (see L 3). The student will observe that the W expressed by this small hook is pronounced before the stem to which it it attached. In this respect it differs from the R and L hooks. The sounds of R and L are uttered always after the stems to which their hooks are attached. The H tick is sometimes prefixed to the W hook, as in Wharpage, Whale, (L 4). WHITING EXERCISE.
