I. PARTS OF SPEECH
1. THE NOUN, ADJECTIVE, ARTICLE,
ADVERB, PREPOSITION, CONJUNCTION,
INTERJECTION, PRONOUN, VERB, AND
PARTICIPPLE [SIC], OR PARTICIPIAL-VERB.
2. Of these, the verb is the most im-
portant, and a knowledge of its va-
rious forms and inflections is indispen-
sable to a correct understanding of the
language. The other parts of speech
are simple in their construction, and
for the most part unvaried.
II. OF NOUNS.
3. No change is made in the termina-
tion of nouns to indicate their case
or number: unless we except the oc-
casional change of the final vowel of
some nouns, when addressed, making
a vocative case.
