S. Austin Allibone, comp.  Prose Quotations from Socrates to Macaulay.  1880.
 
Sir John Stoddart
 
  The applied science of language, if confined to the speech of a single country or district, forms the particular grammar of the language there spoken; but if it embrace many languages, testing their formation, construction, and powers by the common standard of universal grammar, it is termed by different authors comparative grammar, comparative philology,… glottology, or glossology.
Sir John Stoddart.

  The elementary qualities of … speech are tone, time, and force. But of these the principal modifications are commonly called by grammarians accent, quantity, and emphasis.
Sir John Stoddart.

  I admit that where a foreign word is more euphonious than a native word of the very same signification, its adoption may add to the pleasure of sound, which is by no means to be disregarded in language.
Sir John Stoddart.
