TABLE LXI. : In cia, cio, tio, &c. In spelling the following words, the learner should be taught to give

cand 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 must give them the power of s, and to in he must give the power of y; thus, p-r-e-c pres, 2-0-0-8 yus, precious ; l-4-8-c lus, 2-0-U-s yus, luscious ; v-l-t ris, 2-0-0-8 yus, vitious ; n-a-t nas, ion yun, nas'yun, a-l al, national ; 9-a-t ras', 2-0-n yun, ras'yun, a-l al, rational; a-m ano, 6-2-t bis, ambis, 2-0-ne

yun, ambition ; m-u mu, s-i-c sis, muzis, ian yun, musician, &c. N. B. Ce, ci, se, si, and ti, coming before another vowel, and being

pronounced rapidly, will unavoidably run into the simple sound esh ; Thus, precious, ocean, nauseous, mission, nation, national, rational, association, pronunciation, propitiation, dictionary, are pronounced presh'us, o'shun, naw'shus, mish'un, na'shun, nash'unal, rash'unal, assosha'shun, pronunsha'shun, propisha'shung dic'shunery.
