'They are funny fellows, these nine Parts-of-Speech. You will find out by-and-by which you like best amongst them all. There is rich Mr Noun, and his useful friend Pronoun; little ragged Article, talkative Adjective; busy Dr. Verb and Adverb; perky Preposition, convenient Conjunction, and that irksome Interjection, the oddest of them all.' Since it was first published in the 1870s this delightful little book has been teaching children (and adults in need of a refresher) the basic rules of English grammar through its allegorical story set in the fictional world of Grammar-land. The nine parts of speech that inhabit this land - including Mr Noun, the Adjective, Dr Verb and the Preposition - are brought to trial by Judge Grammar to settle disputes over the rules of language. Each part of speech is called in turn to take the stand where they are questioned by Dr Syntax and Sgt Parsing, and in so doing the reader learns, almost without realising, the rules of grammar. This appealing facsimile edition, containing black and white illustrations, once again brings the characters of English grammar to life, for the entertainment and edification of adults and children alike.
