GRAMMAR.

Two hours and a HALF allowed for this Paper.

(No abbreviation of less than three letters to be used in

parsing or analysis).

SECTION I. Parse fully the words in italics in the following

passages :—[Syntax should not be neglected in the

parsing.]
Farewell! A word that must be and hath been,
A sound which makes us linger; yet-farewell !
Ye! who have traced the Pilgrim to the scene
Which is his last, if in your memories dwell
A thought, which once was his, if on ye swell
A single recollection, not in vain
He wore bis sandal-shoon and scallop-shell ;
Farewell! With him alone may rest the pain,
If such there were, with you the moral of his strain,

SECTION II.

Analyse the following sentence:
“ Governors are appointed for the good of the

people, and the Constitution, which appoints
them and invests them with their power,
follows that law of nature, which has determined
the end of government, and which admits this
form of government as the proper way of
arriving at it.”

SECTION III.

Write out the existing rules of grammar that forbid some of the usages employed in the following sentences :

“Between two girls which hath the merriest eye.
“ 'Tis not the many oaths that makes the truth.”
“You may deny that you were not the cause."
“ He pretends to be that he is not."
“ Is she as tall as me?”

Consider who the king, your father, sends.”
“I would not be thee.
" The maid is entered into Orleane."
“Plenty and peace breeds cowards.”

SECTION IV. (Only one of these questions is to be answered.)

(1.) What do you understand by "parsing”? What points must be fully stated in parsing the principal verb of a sentence, a relative pronoun, an adverbial conjunction ?

(2.) Show that more than one verb is required to complete the conjugations of the verbs to go, to be. Give some defective English verbs, and explain why “shall” and “will” do not take the suffix “s” in the third person singular.

(3.) What is meant by gender? Give some of the ways in which the genders are distinguished in English. Give examples from poetry which attribute gender to things without life.

SECTION V.

Give the force of the prefixes or suffixes in tho words italicised in the following passages, and state in each case the source from which they are derived:

It is impossible from the circumstances of mankind that the thoughtless should be benevolent.

Careless men, seized with the newness of such objects, become thoughtful, and willingly contemplate the incessant changes of the carth's surface.

The rulers of a kingdom are not bound to communicate such matters, but may extract and select.
