I’ve always to make a good study into proper pronunciation and grammar, but never started. I found the above at an antique shop in Franklin, NC when we first arrived in March. Just pulled it out of storage/packing today.
Learned something on the first lesson. I have always mispronounced err. Instead of like the urr in purr, I’ve always pronounced it it as err in error.
The book predates the second world war (early thirties) so it should be free of modernisms mostly.
As always you have to, if you want to remain unstained, avoid the falling of civilization’s curtain in the late sixties.
