Excerpt from The Young Composer: A Guide to English Grammar and Composition

Tms work has been prepared on the principle that instruction in Grammar and Rhetoric, and also training in Composition should ever proceed from the thought. The study of the grammar of one's vernacular tongue, to be satisfactory in its results, must be synthetic, not analytic; and synthetic not in the sense of being merely cumulative of words, word-building or sen fence-building simply by piling up element upon ele ment of mere sentence-forms, but synthetic in the sense of embodying thought in its diverse forms in fit forms of language. Grammar should be studied not merely or predominantly that one may interpret well, but that he may speak well, and write well.

This is the method of nature and experience. We Speak that we may communicate thought: we have first the thought; then comes the form of expression. The thought is the vital, organic, germinant element of all rational discourse.
