IT was hoped that this abridgement of Dean Payne would have appeared together with or earlier than the last part of that work. I deeply regret the long delay, due chiefly to my father's death in 1895, and to the consequent necessity of laying aside my own papers, in order to labour, in conjunction with D. S. Margoliouth, at the completion of the greater work. It is a pleasure to offer grateful acknowledgement to various kind helpers; to my yalued old friend, Dr. N eubauer, for encouragement from the beginning; to M. Bubens Duval and to Dean Maclean for their extreme patience and kindness in reading all the proofs. Those of the first part were also revised by my father, and most of the latter portions by my husband. I wish to thank the Delegates of the Press also, and Mr. Doble in particular, for unfailing consideration, and Mr. Pembrey for unstinted pains and many suggestions. As this abridgement is meant chiefly for beginners I thought alphabetical rather than scientific order to be preferred, all the more because ideas of scientific arrangement vary. Participial adjectives are placed with pa.ssive participles under the Peal conjuga.tion because of the difficulty of distinguishing one from the other, also because the verbal, adjectival, and substantival uses of these forms slide into each other. When the same English translation is given to more than one cougation of a verb, it will be understood that the Pael meaning is intensive.
