CONSONANTS.-It has been thought that consonants cannot be sounded without the help of a vowel; but it is not so. The names of the consonants cannot; but their elements can, though imperfectly. The student will find it a good exercise to sound them separately, and then in combination with the vowels.

EXAMPLES TO SHOW IN READING HOW SOME VOWEL SOUNDS ARE CHANGED -ALSO HOW LETTERS ARE LIABLE TO BE SUNK, OR VITIATED IN SOUND.
WHEN any of the pronouns, prepositions, or conjunctions are softened down to a different sound in reading this lesson, their orthography is changed to show it. The article a is always short, and is marked with a breve. The article the, before a consonant sound is short and marked with a breve; before a vowel it is long and unmarked. When e or o before n, or e before d should be silent, the vowel's place has an apostrophe. The letters liable to be improperly sunk, or perverted in sound are put in italics.
The fear uv the Lord | is the beginning uv knowledge; but fools despise wisdom and instruction. |
Not The fear of the Lård | is the beginning of knåwledge; but fools despåise wisdom and 'nstruction. My son, hear the instruction uv thy father, and forsake not the law uv thy mother: for they shall be an ornament uv grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.
Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets; she crieth in the chief place uv concourse; in the opening uv the gates; in the city she uttereth her words, saying, how long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity, and fools hate knowledge? Mi son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide! mi commandments with thee; so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice fur understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as fur hid treasure; then shalt thou understand the fear uv God.
He that hath no rule over his own spirit, is like ǎ city that is broken down, and without walls.
Boast not thyself uv to-morrow; for thou knowest not what ǎ day may bring forth.
He that, being oft'n reprov'd, hardneth his neck | shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy. When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people
Remove far from me with food convenient for me;
vanity und lies; feed me lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, who is the Lord? or lest I be poor | and steal, und take the name uv my God
