Excerpt from The Principles of Language: Exemplified in Practical English Grammar With Copious Exercises; Designed as an Introduction to the Study of Languages Generally for the Use of Schools, and Self-Instruction
The faculty of speech has developed itself in lan guage and, ... to extend the communication of thought, originally limited to the range within which the voice could be heard, men have invented signs, serving to convey to the mind, through the medium of the eye, the same ideas that would be conveyed by the ear, could the sounds which these signs represent be heard; and we have thus a spoken language and a written language.
Grammar, as a science, treats of the principles of language generally; when practically applied, as an art, to any particular language, its Object is to teach how to speak and write that language correctly.
