PREFACE.

This work, as its title indicates, is intended for the use of Advanced Classes, for scholars who are, to some extent, familiar with the principles of pronunciation and syllabication. It is not intended to supersede the ordinary Spelling Book, but rather to follow it, as a practical application of the pupil's knowledge, not only in spelling, but in dividing and pronouncing the more difficult words in common use.

It is believed that, for Advanced Classes, the plan adopted in this book, of presenting the words without indicating the pronunciation or syllabication, will be found to possess some decided advantages; for the pupil, as in the study of Arithmetic and the Languages, is thereby thrown upon his own resources. This method will certainly test his knowledge, while the dictionary will always be available to supply deficiencies.

The words have been arranged in lessons of thirty each, and numbered for convenience of reference. All classification has been carefully avoided, so that the initial letter, the terminational syllable, or the silent letters shall not be indicated by the preceding word.

It is suggested that, in written lessons, the words be arranged in lines, instead of columns, in order to afford the scholar an occasional exercise in practical syllabication.
