Excerpt from A Grammar of Late Modern English, Vol. 1: The Sentence; First Half, the Elements of the Sentence
The object of this book, the first section of which has just left the press, is to give a survey of the most striking features of Late Modern English, as it presents ... itself to Continental, especially Dutch, students. Although the work professes to be concerned with the English of the last two hundred years, it is especially the literature of this and the previous generation that has been subjected to closer investigation. Occasional glimpses have been given of older stages of the language, chie¿y for the purpose of accounting for otherwise unintelligible idioms, or showing prototypes of the many archaisms affected by writers of the present day. Also in illustrating usages that from an early date have subsisted to the present day, examples have often been taken from shakespeare and the authorized version.
