Jeg gad vide om jeg er den eneste som synes denne her American Spelling Book er sindssygt morsom:
IN the Englifh alphabet there are twenty five fingle characters that fthand as reprefentatives of certain founds.
A, b, c, d, e, f, g, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, f, t, u, v, w, x, y, z. H is not a mark of found, but it qualifies or gives form to a fucceding found.
In order to underftand thefe letters, or rather the founds they reprefent, it is neccefary to define the meaning of the words vowel, diphtong and confonant.
A vowel is a fimple articulate found. A fimple found is formed by opening the mouth in a certain manner, without any contact of the parts of it. Whenever a found can be begun and completed with the fame pofition of the organs, it is a fimple found.
