When e unaccented, comes before a, e, or u, it has generally the power of y, forming a diphthong with the fol. lowing vowel ; as in nausea, righteous, grandeur, (pronounced nausya, rightyus, grandyur.)

When a comes before the e, it has the power of s; as in ocean, (pronounced o'sgan)

When i unaccented, comes before another vowel, it has generally the power of y, forming a diphthong with the following vowel : thus the terminations iar, ier, ior, iour, ial, ien, ion, ium, ius, ious, iate, ia, ics, ian, iant, iance, ient, ience, iary, are sounded as if written yar, yur, yal. yen, yun, yum, yus, yate, ya, yiz, yan, yant, yance, yeni yence, yary ; as in fumiliar, soldier, senior, saviour, filial, alien, million, medium, genius, tedious, conciliate, India, In dies, Indian, val. iant, brilliance, convenient, convenience, auxiliary-pronounced as if written, familyar, soldyur se'nyur, sav'yur, filyal, d'lyen, millyun, me'dyum, genyus, te'dyus, concilyate, Indya, Indyiz, Ind. yan, valyant, brillyance, convenyent, convényence, augzilyery.

When ss, or a single s, preceded by a consonant, comes before the i, it has its sharp hissing sound; as in mission, conversion (pronounced missyun, conversyun.).

When a single s preceded by a vowel, comes before the i, it has the sound of %; as in osier, occasion, (pronounced oz'yur, occa'zyun.)

When e or comes before the i, it has the sound of sharp s; as in gracious, special, nation, militia, (pronounced gra'sgus, spesyal, na'syun, milisya ;) except when the t is preceded by s, or x, it retains its own sound; as in Christian, mixtion, (pronounced Christ'yun, mixt'yun ) Also in the word courtier, (pronounced courtyur.)

Exceptions : 1. When e and i are preceded by, ch, sb, or &, they become silent before another vowel, and the g has the sound of j; thus, puncheon, fashion, pigeon, religion, are pronounced punch'un, fash'un, pij'un, relij'un. 2. In plurals ending in ies, and comparatives in ier, the i has not the power of y but the sound of ;?; thus, beauties, mightier, must not be pronounced beautyiz, mightyer; but beautiz, migh.ti.cr.

TABLE LVI.

In ia, ie, io, eo, eu, &c. In spelling the following words, the learner should be taught to give

e and i their own proper names, when he speaks them separately ; but when he unites them with the other letters in the syllables to which they belong, he should give them the power of y; thus, 8-3-2-rod guard, i-a-n yan.guar tian; h-i-d hid.e-o--s yus, hideous,&c.

A single sa preceded by a vowel, and coming before ia, ie, io, or iu, bas

the sound of z. Read thus ; v.iós viz, i-0-n yun, vision ; por-o prog

v-i-s viz proviz, 2-0-n yun, provision, &c. N. B. A single s, coming before ia, ie, ic, or u and being pronounced

rapidly, will unavoidably run into the simple sound ezh; thus,vision occasion, are pronounced vizhun, occa' zhun.
