The Present Confusion in Reference to the Writing of Compound Words-These Terms to be Thoroughly and Systematically Treated in the Standard Dictionary–The System Universally Commended–The Definition of Calendar, with Table of Hebrew Months, etc.

Some time ago we issued a circular requesting the opinion of a large number of writers, educators, and others, in reference to the proper occasion for writing compound words, and their judgment concerning the use of the hyphen for connecting the parts of such words. We received many answers, one of which, from a school superintendent, 'was: I do not know anything about it, and I do not believe any one does.

It is strange, but true, that this frank acknowledgment represents in effect nearly all that was said in hundreds of letters, all from people who should kpow.

It is a much stranger fact that this feature of the English language is so confused in literature as to justify our correspondent's assertion.

The subject has been very closcly studied, however, by Mr. F. Horace Tea!), the editor in charge of that department of the Standard Dictionary, who is also author of “The Compounding of English Words.” This class of words should be thoroughly and systematically treated so as to secure the correct form in each case ; and the method pursued in this Dictionary is really systematic—the only systematic method ever attempted.. Mr. Teall's system has been approved (in many cases enthusiastically) by a large number of eminent authors, educators, and proofreaders, whose criticism we have invited. We know of do disapproval from any one who is competent to speak with any recognized authority.

The Definition of Calendar. The natural division of time into night and day, lunar months, seasons, and years, hus, of course, been noted from the earliest times, and by all peoples, however primitive, but no nation or people not considerably advanced in civilization and knowledge has devised a systematic method of so naming and ordering the days and months that any given number of them shali form a definite period, corresponding to the observed annual recurrence of the seasons. Since the beginning of history, many and varied systems have been employed, and our own nearly perfect method of enumerating time is of coinparatively recent origin. The most noteworthy methods of recording time of interest to the general public are those mentioned in the following desinition of calendar, which we find in the M8. being made ready for the Standard Dictionary.. Bible students who wish to know about the time of year to which reference is made in numerous passages of Scripture will be much pleased with its table of the Hebrew months.
