When I first conceived the idea of combining the older Classical Philology, in all its applications, with the new science of comparative grammar, I felt that the novelty and importance of the design would excuse many faults in the execution: and though I might have known that, in entering upon investigations of a more extensive character than had been previously attempted by any Scholar, I had engaged in an undertaking, in which no one writer could hope to accomplish every thing by a single effort, I had yet reason to feel all confidence in the soundness of the linguistic principles maintained in this book, and was convinced that I had succeeded in explaining many phenomena of inflected language in general, and had contributed some important additions to the various departments of Greek scholarship in particular. But while these considerations encouraged the first publication of this book, as the original work of a young author, they do not diminish the responsibilities connected with its revision at a more mature age :and as I no longer enjoy the happy leisure which enabled me to compose the following pages in the first instance, I have thought it my duty to postpone the second edition until I had completed that general review of the whole subject which its importance seemed to demand.
