Excerpt from Our Language: It's Use and Structure Taught by Practice and Example
The arrangement of this book in two parts has made it possible to give under one cover both instruction and exercises for practice in nearly all kinds of elementary language work.
Part I... is not an introduction to Part II, but is designed to provide for children such training in the ready use of good English as they can never get by the study of grammar alone. The pre eminent importance of this training is recognized by placing the material for it first, instead of relegating it to a few meagre pages at the end, as if it were to give a finishing touch to a long course of study. It ought rather to be used from the outset, whether the structure of language is taught at the same time or not. The man ner in which Part I may be used is set forth in the Introduction.
