Excerpt from Words: Their Spelling, Pronunciation, Definition and Applicaton

Poor spelling has been justly termed the reproach of American schools, and the attention that spelling is now receiving from schools of all grades, including colleges and universities, shows the importance that is attached to this subject.

"Words" is the outgrowth of an urgent need of a speller adapted to the requirements of commercial schools, where much has to be thoroughly accomplished in a brief period of time. These lists have been greatly enlarged in the revised edition by the addition of Biz chapters.

"Words" was prepared by two teachers of long experience in commercial school lines, the lists of words having been drawn largely from experience in correcting transcripts of students.

Thoughtful educators are agreed that sight has quite as much, if not more, to do with learning spelling than anything else, and that,. therefore, the great advantage of this fact should be utilized in teaching. Another, and fully as important a consideration, is teaching the words in sentences. These two fundamental principles underlie the plan of "Words." They have been strengthened by a logical mechanical arrangement and the utilization of every psychological aid possible to secure the best results with the least effort.

"Words" possesses many distinctive advantages over other spelling texts. The following features embody important improvements which will, we are sure, appeal with special force to every discriminating and progressive teacher:

1. It presents the words in the first column as commonly seen in print, without diacritical marks or division in syllables, thus giving a correct first impression of the word.

2. The word is marked diacritically in the second column, in accordance with the method used in Websters International Dictionary, and divided properly into syllables for the purpose of affording the student a thorough drill in pronunciation and syllabication.

3. A clear, concise definition of the word is given in the third column.

4. On the opposite page sentences are given illustrating the practical application of the words. These sentences, for the most part, are quotations from well-known authors, and were selected for a double purpose to give a clear idea of the correct use of the words, and for their educational value. The sentences should be used as dictation exercises.

5. The arrangement of the book makes it possible to cover a comprehensive list of words, which have been selected because of their frequency and their liability to be misspelled.
