Excerpt from The English Language Its Grammatical and Logical Principles

In the following pages an attempt has been made to discuss the principles grammatical and logical, of the English Language.

In Part I., the discussions are confined to Forms of Expression. There are in our language certain generic forms which are here classified under the heads of Word-forms, Phrase-forms, and Clause-forms, in some one of which as a fixed organic structure of language, thought is always embodied. These generic forms, or moulds of thought, are moreover the same, substantially, in organic form and character, in all languages. Hence, in these organic verbal structures, all written thought, whether ancient or modern, finds its constant expression. While, therefore, a knowledge of these forms is indispensable to a clear understanding of the syntactical structure of the English, and to the philosophy of verbal combination generally in our tongue, such knowledge becomes of immense value, the moment the pupil enters upon the study of the syntax of a foreign language; for the leading grammatical principles, here discussed, are the same in all tongues.
