A new introduction to learning; or, a sure guide to the English pronunciation and orthography : in plain prose for the ease, and familiar verse for the pleasure, as well as profit, of the learner. Containing much more on those Subjects than any other Book, in a Method never before attempted; and by which All who can Read may learn, without a Teacher, to Speak and Write English as Correctly as they that have had a Liberal Education. Contriv'd so as to amuse and exercise the Ingenious, improve and delight the Less-Knowing, clearly instruct the Ignorant, and allure Youth to a Love of Learning; tho' chiefly design'd for such Grown Persons as have had but a slender Education, and are desirous of further Improvement. To make it of General Use are added, I. An alphabetical Collection and clear Distinction of above a Thousand Words nearly alike in Sound, but different in Sense and Spelling. II. A large Table of Words, with their Meaning, made different in Signification by adding E Final III. An Explanation of Abbreviations, Notes of Reference, and other Marks which often occur in Books and Writing. By Samuel Hammond, Schoolmaster in Nottingham; Author of the Complete and Comprehensive Spelling-Dictionary.
