Excerpt from A Table of the Aryan Languages: With Notes and Illustrations
That the science of comparative philology is still immature, and that, hence, such generalisations as our Table presents are of necessity imperfect, is no reason why the young student should be kept in ... the dark as to the relationship between his mother tongue and the kindred languages (greek, Latin, German, French, &c.) to which he devotes so large a portion of his time, or be allowed, erroneously, to regard those verbal likenesses he cannot fail to notice as simply the result of direct derivation.
By keeping before a class some of the general principles upon which the in¿ections of words and the construction of sentences depend, those repetitions of declensions and conjugations which usually exercise the ear and memory only, may be made instrumental to the development of the judgment.
