The Pronunciation. In this new spelling, every consonant used has its ordinary unvarying sound, no consonant being employed that has more than one sound. The same sounds are always represented by the same letters, no matter how varied their actual spelling in the language. No consonant used has any mark attached to it, with the one exception of th , which is printed in common letters when sounded as in thick , but in italics when sounded as in th en.
Unmarked vowels have always their short sounds, as in lad , led , lid , lot , but , book. The marked vowels are shown in the following line, which is printed at the top of each page:—. Where more than one pronunciation of a word is given, that which is placed first is more accepted. The Spelling. Unfortunately our modern spelling does not represent the English we actually speak, but rather the language of the 16th century, up to which period, generally speaking, English spelling was mainly phonetic, like the present German.
The fundamental principle of all rational spelling is no doubt the representation of every sound by an invariable symbol, but in modern English the usage of pronunciation has drifted far from the conventional forms established by a traditional orthography, with the result that the present spelling of our written speech is to a large extent a mere exercise of memory, full of confusing anomalies and imperfections, and involving an enormous and unnecessary strain on the faculties of learners. Spelling reform is indeed an imperative necessity, but it must proceed with a wise moderation, for, in the words of Mr Sweet, 'nothing can be done without unanimity, and until the majority of the community are convinced of the superiority of some one system unanimity is impossible.
But in cases like Clerk , Livery , Marshal , where the force of the word can be made much clearer by tracing its history, the original meaning is also given, and the successive variations of its usage defined. The Etymology. Where further information regarding a word is given elsewhere, it is so indicated by a reference. It must be noted under the etymology that whenever a word is printed thus, Ban , Base , the student is referred to it; also that here the sign—is always to be read as meaning 'derived from.
Such words are usually separated from the rest by a semicolon. For instance, when an English word is traced to its Anglo-Saxon form, and then a German word is given, no one should suppose that our English word is derived from the German. German and Anglo-Saxon are alike branches from a common Teutonic stem, and have seldom borrowed from each other.
Under each word the force of the prefix is usually given, though not the affix. For fuller explanation in such cases the student is referred to the list of Prefixes and Suffixes in the Appendix. Same as Sabianism. Sabbatum , gener. Sabbata —Gr.
