ENGLISH GRAMMAR.

(Three Hours allowed for this paper.) Every Candidate is required to write out the paraphrase.

He may select questions to answer at his discretion from all the sections, not however exceeding six in the whole, exclusively of the paraphrase.

Paraphrase the following passage. (You will be good enough to remember that you are not asked to expand the passage ; but to render the same sense in different, though equivalent, terms.)

The office of justices in eyre was instituted in the reign of Henry the Second, the king having divided the kingdom into six circuits, a little different from the present, and commissioned these new created judges to administer justice and try writs of assize in the several counties. These remedies are said to have been then first invented; before which, all causes were usually terminated in the county courts, according to the Saxon custom; or before the king's justiciaries in the Aula Regis, in pursuance of the Norman regulations. The latter of which tribunals travelling about with the king's person, occasioned intolerable expense and delay to the suitors; and the former, however proper to little debts and minute actions, where even injustice is better than procrastination, were now become liable to too much ignorance of the law, and too much partiality as to facts, to determine matters of considerable moment.

Section 1. Read as far as the first full stop. 1. “The king having divided.” How are these words connected with the rest of the sentence in point of construction? Do they belong to the subject or to the predicate of the sentence? State the reasons of your answer.

2. With what noun does “ different” agree? With what noun missioned”? With what other preceding word, besides its noun, must “commissioned ” be joined in order to parse it fully?

3. What parts of speech are "little” and “ Do you know this by their form or by their position ? Add a few remarks, such as you would address to children of a senior class upon these words, in explaining the use of inflexion.

Section 2. These remedies

regulations." 1. “These remedies are said to have been then first invented.” Pick out the auxiliary verbs from this sentence. What voices, moods, and tenses do they respectively help to constitute ?

2. “Before which,” “Before the king's justiciaries.” Explain the difference of meaning in the word “before” in these two clauses. Which is likely to have been the earlier of the two meanings? Why?

3. Name an adjectival form of each of the following words-remedy, invent, terminate, custom, regulate; marking off by hyphens the syllable which in each case gives the adjectival force to the word.

4. Name (singular and plural) the demonstrative pronouns. Show how they differ in sense from each other. Name the adverbs of time, and the adverbs of place, which correspond respectively to each demonstrative pro

5. “All causes were usually terminated in the county courts according to the Saxon custom, or before the king's justiciaries in the Aula Regis in pursuance of the Norman regulations.” Parse each word separately. What is meant by antithesis ? Illustrate your answer by means of this sentence.

Section 3. The latter of which tribunals." 1. Parse, (a) according to etymology, (b) according to syntax, the words latter--former-better- as they occur in the passage just given.
