Excerpt from The Orthoëpist: A Pronouncing Manual Containing About Three Thousand Five Hundred Words; Including a Considerable Number of the Names of Foreign Authors, Etc; That Are Often Mispronounced
This edition of this book is as comprehensive and as trustworthy as I have been able to make it. A cursory glance will convince any one at all acquainted with the subject that I have taken pains in preparing it.
The words I have added - about one thousand in number - I have slowly collected during the last twelve years; and I believe there are few words often mispronounced that will not here be found.
I am much indebted to Mr. Francis A. Teall, the accomplished English scholar, for his kindly assistance in making the changes and emendations necessary to have the book conform to the latest and most approved usage.
