Orthography, Etymology, Syntax, and Prosody.
In this division and order of the parts of grammar I follow the common
grammarians, without inquiring whether a fitter distribution might not
be found. Experience has long shown this method to be so distinct as to
obviate confusion, and so comprehensive as to prevent any inconvenient
omissions. I likewise use the terms already received, and already
understood, though perhaps others more proper might sometimes be
invented. Sylburgius, and other innovators, whose new terms have sunk
their learning into neglect, have left sufficient warning against the
trifling ambition of teaching arts in a new language.
