thing you did was listen to the world around you. You recognized voices; you were startled by noises; you
were soothed by music. Then you began to imitate the sounds you heard and you experimented by creating
your own sounds. You learned that crying brought attention, words identiﬁed things, and that linking words

This edition of the book is in its scope and method the same as the first; the material and its
arrangement remain basically unchanged. But there were in the first edition some omissions
in the treatment of adverbs and links (conjunctions) which have been made good. Also a
large part of the section on reported speech has been rewritten with additional examples and
exercises in order to make the approach to this aspect of English grammar both more
extensive and more flexible.
The present text-book is a new-modeling and rewriting of Swinton's _Word-Analysis_, first published in 1871. It has grown out of a large amount of testimony to the effect that the older book, while valuable as a manual of methods, in the hands of teachers, is deficient in practice-work for pupils.

Idioms are a style or form of (often artistic) expression, characteristic of a particular language, group, subculture, school of thought, generation, or medium (for example, movies and television). Idioms can convey that the current situation being described has a resemblance with past history, and in that sense they may be similar to analogies or metaphors.

particular cohort of students and has specific objectives appropriate to these, but all share an emphasis
on the development of language skills, from the basic literacy of reading and writing to the critical
literacy required for analysing and interpreting texts....

substitutable in a context for another word or phrase. People who study
language professionally agree that there is no such thing as an ideal
synonym, for it is virtually impossible to find two words or phrases that
are identical in denotation (meaning), connotation, frequency,
familiarity, and appropriateness. Indeed, linguists have long noted the
economy of language, which suggests that no language permits a perfect
