Excerpt from Oral English: Directions and Exercises for Planning and Delivering the Common Kinds of Talks, Together With Guidance for Debating and Parliamentary Practice

Oral English is taking its place in schools and colleges as a subject Independent both of literature and of written composition. Moreover, the study itself is changing, passing from practice in imitation of lofty masterpieces, with the elocutionary style, to direct, effective speaking without unnecessary adornment. Many authors still make oral work subsidiary to written composition, whereas speaking should be primary. Others plan to drill stu dents chiefly in vocal exercises, giving most of the time to prepa ration for talking and little to the talking itself. Many emphasize reproduction and neglect production. Some ground their exercises on the theory of general discipline, and neglect considerations of immediate utility and vocational needs. Few give the students the point of view of the modern, active man or woman of the world, who must talk a great deal and wishes to do it with businesslike simplicity and brevity.
