Context of An easy and complete introduction to reading. : Containing a copious alphabet, tables of words from one to six and seven syllables, collections of verses from Scripture select fables, stories, moral sentences, and pieces of poetry, with tables of scripture proper names, and others; properly and methodically digested: wherein the words of more than one syllable, both in the tables and exercises, (the last exercise excepted) are divided, and in such a manner as the pronunciation requires, without regard to the common and mechanical rules, which very often lead to a vicious pronunciation; the gradual progress from easy to more hard lessons, throughout the whole, carefully attended to; and the monosyllables, dissyllables, and such of the trissyllables as have any difficulty or peculiarity in their pronunciation, arranged accordng to their several classes, in the most accurate and advantageous manner, (in such a one as hath never before been attempted); so that children, with the utmost facility, and the greatest possible ease to the teacher, may thereby gain a sufficient practical acquaintance with the principles of English pronunciation, while they are yet incapable of attaining a theoretic knowledge thereof. To which is added, an appendix designed for children who have made some progress in reading; containing a brief summary of every thing necessary to a thorough understanding of English pronunciation.
