Bound with : A key to the classical pronunciation of Greek, Latin, and scripture proper names; in which the words are accented and divided into syllables, exactly as they ought ot be pronounced, according to rules drawn from analogy and the best usage. To which are added, terminational vocabularies of Hebrew, Greek, & Latin proper names, in which the words are arranged according to their final syllables, adn classed according to their accents, by which the general analogy of pronunciation may be seen at one view, and the accentuation of each word more easily remembered. Concluding with observations on the Greek and Latin accent and quantity; with some probable conjectures on the method of freeing them from the obscurity and confusion in which they are involved, both by the ancients and moderns.
