This book contains the Ul'I'I"ERSAL

REMARK NUMBER TWO
Whe n the defiuite nrtiole the comes
before II word beginn ing with A VOWEL,
it should be spelled, \VI'itten and pl'inted witil the sixth vowel E; thus:
liE ail', hE aim, liE ice, hE ape, In: auvil, li E apple, lIE egg, l iE ed ge, lu: owner,
h E odo, h E idea, h E nwfnl, hE haul', h E
earth, Bu t when it. comes before a
word beginning with A CONSOXANT, it
should be spelled, written and printed
with the ~'OURTEENTn "Ow};L,- the HALFvOwEL,- the OBSCURB "OWEL,- t he BALFSOUNDBD vowBL, t h us:- HlI boy, Jill g irl,
lill mnu, lw day, 1m pay, 1m dime, lm
dollnl', 1m gold,lm si lvCl', 1m sun, i-w
moon, Jm foe, 1m iaw, lm book,hu Bible.
No otber reason need be given for this
r emark than to stnte the well-known
fact that in spoken language the people
nearly a ll rRO~'OUNm; tbe word in that
way. Let us spell and write and print
as we pronouuce,
REMARK NUMBER THREl<:;
The wOl'd too, tneaning " a lso," nnd
the adverb too, as iu too long, t oo s hort,
and the numeral and numbel' two,
should a lways b(l spclled, wriLt(ln lind
printed tro, with Lh c twelfth vowe l ro,
because they are PRO~'OUNCED thnt way;
but when the "to" means" toward," 0 1'
when it is a part of t he verb, and the
other part of the verb BEGINS WITl! A
CO:\"SOXANT, it should be spelled, writteu and printed with the FQURTEENTl!
"OWEI.,- t he HALF VOWEL,-the OBSCURE
VOWBL, - the INDEFINITE VOWEL, - t he
HALF-SQU:-I OED VOWEL, t hus: - tn be, ttl

word, or t he othel' part of the verb,
BEGINS WITII A "OW}:L, the word " to"

ADVICE TO STUDENT
Every s tudent who hus spelled these
1,170 WORDS OF TIlE FOURTH CLASS, using
the good old rule of our fathers and ·
mothers,-Rule First - is now earnestly
advised to READ RULE SECOND vcry carefully and then spell a ll of the sume 1,170
words of the FOURTH OLASS in accordance wit h that Rule Second,
After this has been done, the student
is advised to READ RULE TIIlRD, very
carefull y, and then s pell aU of the very
same 1,170 words in accordance wit h
tbat Rule Third a lso.
After this bas been faithfully done,
tbe s tudent s hould carefully READ RULE
FOURTU -LIMITED, and go ·pn with t he
spelling:- beginning wit h t he little
three-letter WORDS OF THE FIFTH OLASS,
t rBe sure to use RULE roURTH-LI:lI·
ITED, in all cases, hereafter, where it is
possible to do so, in connection with
any of the otber rules, because Rule
Fourth - Limited, ALWAYS HAS THE
"mOliT OF WAY, "~
RULE SECOND FOR SPELLI NG
B LEND A CO~SONANT AKD A VOWEL
If there is only OXE consonan t stnnding belore the vowel, then this is the
rule:
t3r Any consonant standing before
aoy vowel, in t he same syllable, or the
same short word, may be BLE!'DE D with
the vowel by SOUNDING the consonant
and NAMING the vowel in the sarno
breath, as if t be TWO let ters were but
ONE; then NAM E each of the remaining
letters, one, two, or three; and t ben
PRONOUNOE the syllable, or tbe short
word, ~
If there are two or three consonan ts
standing before the vowel, t hen t h is is
the rule:
!2ir NAME each of the consonants,
except tbe LAST on e, that may be stand ·
ing before the vowel; t hen BLEND that
LAST ooe with the vowel, by SOUNDING
t he con sona nt and NAMING the vowel
io t.he same breath, as if the TWO letters
were hut ONE: tben NA~I E eucb o f the
remaining letters - if any - a nd then
PRO"'OUNOE the syllabIc 01' t he short

'.rhi s ru le nlDY be considered as an
amendment to or an im provement

abd dgment, or condens..'ltion of Rule
First.
It simplifies t he hard work of spelling
in HUN DREDSOF'I'HOUSANDS O ~' SYLLABLES
and many HUNDREDS OF SHORT WORDS, or
words of one syllable.
T bis method of putting two letters
together aod SOUNDING the.m as if t h e

very IMPORTANT step in the direction

Tbero al'e a few consonant combina·
tions in Ollr own h\.llguage, H.nd a few
consonant combinations in fillny othel'
languages, wh ich, in order t o make the
spelling plain, easy, distinct and rapid,
seem to require the BLEKDINO OF TWO
CO:-.'SO:-.'ANTS,to be expr'essed or SOUNDED
as if t ho TWO wcre but ONk:,
In our language t hese close-fitting
combinations al'e most fl'equently met

sf " sphere, sphinx, sph eride,
After careful searoh t h rough many
languagos, it was found that tho fo llowing UN IVERSAL RULE would t h row ligbt
into all tho dark pluces and remove a ll
difficulties:
RULE: FOURTH-LIM ITED

in the sa mc syllable, or in the same

as if tho TWO letters were but ONE; tben
name eoch of the remaining let.ters,
if any -"; and then PRONOONCE t ho

This rule begins to work with words
of the fiFTH CLASS, that are spelled on
,MODEL NUMBER FIVE, as indicated in t he
'rable of .M odels or'l'able of Putterlls
(XXO); lind tbe r ule may be applied
easily nnd rapidly in spelling many
words and a multitude of syllables, in
ut.~arly 011 of the remaining closses,
down to Ilnd including words of the
sixteenth class.
'l'bis blending of TWO CONSONANTS may
be done BEFORE tbe vowel or A",I:m the
vowel; and sometimes both BEFORE
AXD An-Ell the vowel.

done, anywhere and everywhe,'e, and

ADVICE TO THE STUDENT
The student is now informed that
more than half of the hard work is
done, More t han half of the entire
Science of Spelling is mastered,
If t he student has spelled aU of t he
FIRST TE:i CLASSES of ShOI·t wOl'ds,spelled on the FIRST TEN lIODELS,- and
has practiced,- as heretofore advised
to practice,- nsing Rule Second for
Spelling, Ru le 'fhird for Spelling, and
Rule Fourth Limited for SpolH ng,lind has a lso PRAOTIOED SPELLINO SYLLABLES, upon the Table of Models, us heretofore ad vised,-he is now prepared
to begin using Ru le Fourth Unlimited
for Spelling. Later he will use H.ule
Fifth, and last of all Rule Sixth.
But rig h t here and now, before trying
t o spell ally more words, t he student is
advised to READ VERY OAREFULLY, so as
to explaiu to other students, ALL TOE
RULES GOl'ERNING TilE UNl\'E RSAL ALFABET AND THE son:!,\CE OF SPELLING; and
especia lly the rules fOl' PRODUCING,
SOUNDINO AND NAMING all of the letters
in the aUnbet, and for TABULATING the
same, iu accordance with the LAWS OF
NATURE.
A few of the pages that immediately
follow, will make all of these things
plain,
AND SCIEXCg OF SPELLI NG

RULES GOVERNING THE UNIVERSAL ALFABET
AND THE SCIENCE OF SPELLING
'J.'hese rules nre p lain, easy Hnd uni·
versui.
'1'hey point out an unerring method
of constructing and tabulating the UNI·
V!; RSAL 1\ LFABET; the NAMING OF ALL Ol'
ITS LETTERS; and ALL OF TIlE RULES AND
OIR!;CT(ONS t hat are I·equired for spell.
ing ALL OF TIl E WORDS TllAT ARE SPOKEN
BY MAN.
Any student, in any country, follow-
ing tbese rules, will bave very little
difficulty in learning to spell the WORUS
OF HIS OWN L,\NO UAGE, 01' the words of
any other language, that may distinctly
FA.L L UPON HIS EAR.
Tbere nre TWO very good rules for
PRODUCING or SOUNDING all of the sim·
p ie vowels - nnd a lso for PRODUOING OR
SOUNDING rul of the compound vowels.
The first rule is for producing or
sounding the first seven vowels.
FIRST SEVEN VOWELS
FmST RULE: !:'ir While your lips remain in a natural or normal condition,
-that is to say, not protruded, not
pushed [ol'ward, not pouted, not puc k.
cred, nor d epressed. "Open your mouth
fairly wide, until t ho opening is nearly
round, and t hcn SOUND TilE FIRST VOW.
I::L; same as in tho vowol sound that is
heard in . rod, sad, bod, God, was, wad,
all, uot, got, pond, fu l', cal', pa, ma; now
close tbe lips anci mouth just [l little
bit, and SOU:\D Tm: SECO:"m '{IOWI::L;
same as tbe vowel sound that is heard
in had, bad, mad, mun, can, bam, dare,
fair , chair, fat,cat, ut, add , air, am; now
close t he lips and mouth just a Iittlo
bit more and SOUND THE THIRD VOWE['; as
beu l·d in but,nut,tub,bud,lllud,I'un,r um,
dumb, come, done, onc, us, must, l'USt,
lind so on, closing the li ps and mouth
just a littlo bit m ore each time, and
SOUND TllE FOURTH, FIFTII, SIXTli AND
SEVENTH VOWELS." ~
FOURTH vowel as in made, fade, raid,
dale, [ail , aim, wait, eigbt, aid, dame,
rain, gale, blaze, ways.
l<"'IFTH vowel, us in men, d en , fed, led,
dell, fell, bet, net, head, wed, yes, guess,
bern, end.
SIXTIl vowol as in me, he, we, she, see,
need, feed, meul, peal, seem, eat, h eat,
seize, east.
SEVENTH \,owe1, as in did, bid, lid,di m,
him, sin, sing, ring, if, it, is, will, fiU, ill,
fist, iu.
By tbis timo the student will find
tbat his lips !Ind mouth will not be en·
tirely closod, but VERY NEARLY Cr,QSED;
and t h e FIRST SE I'EN \,OWI::[,5, numbered
1, 2, 3,4, 5,6,7, will havo been PRODUCED,
OR SOtlNDED, in tbei.r N~TtlR~L ORDER.
SECOND SEVEN VOWELS
SECOND RULE: ratr"Openyourmouth
fairly wide, nutil tbe open ing is n early
round,- the saDie as beforel [or tho first
soven vowels;- but now, thiS time, pusb
tbe lips a littlo forward; protrude them,
distend t hem, or pout tbem, or pucker
tbem just a littlo; and while the mouth
and lips are in tbis shnpe, SOUNJ) 1'H[;
EIGHTH VOWEL, same as the vowel souud
that is heard in law, saw, laud, awe, oIl,
call, bougbt, taught, fought, dawn, lawn,
thawed, gone; now close the moutb and
lips just a little bit, and SOUND XllE
NINTH VOWEL; same as t h e vowel sound
that is heard iu oh, owe, own , tone,
mode, load, boat, rode, goes, foes, oats,
cant, bomo; ond so on, the sa me as
before, closing the moutb and lips just
a little bit more each time nnd SOUND
THE TENTH, ELEVENTH, TWELFTIl, THIR·
TEENTll AND FOUllTEENTli VOWELS."~
'l'ENTH vowel, sarna as tb o vowel
sound t bat is bea rd in fur, her, sir,
myrrh , word, heard, b ird, aud in uc.
cented syllables before r, as WORry,
abSURD, MURder. In our language this

By t he t ime the student bas sounded
the 8th, 9th, 10tb, 11th, 12th {lnd 13th
\'owels and has reached tho 14th , his
month nnd lips will be \'ERY NEARLY

DUOE
RUL ES FOR NAM ING VOWELS
There is on ly one rule for NA:ilIINO ull
of the \'owel sYlu bols, 0 1" vowol lett ers :
~ '1'ho SOU!'D of uny vowel is the
N.HI E o f that vowol. Also the SOUl\D of
nllY compound vowel is t bo l\A~[ 1:: of
that compound vowel. ~
In most cases t he compound vowels
are considered , handled, s poken of, and
reforTed to us VOWI::LS - just plain vow(l Is -that stand fOI' AUDIB LE AND COMPLETE SOUl\DS.
SCIE NTI FIC TAB ULA T I ON OF TH E ALFABET
A complete nlfabet for a ll tbe world

ALF ABET OF T HE SC I ENCE OF SPELLI NG
Each letter is numbered, and its
number never changes; so that ench

EAln'll.
Letters not absolutely needed in t he
English lunguage, wben t be same is
properly nnd correctly spoken, are
TAKEN OUT of tbese tables and dashes
or blanks left in their places. Thus it
will be seen thut t here are twenty-one
dashes or blanks in these tables, represClltillgtwen ty-olle letLel's USE D IN OTHER
LANGUAGES, but not necessfU'ilyrequir'ed
in our own. Each nation tukes out of
the tabl es tlrose letterS which it does
not n eed. Later on it will be found
very convenient to fill some of these
blank spaces with the letters which
belong in them for convenience in
q noting and pl"in tillg strange words
often heard a mong our own people.
F ew nations use more thIn) 40 to 48
sounds in their d aily conversation.

DISCO VERIES
'l'here are FOURT EEN s imple vowel
sounds in tho speech of human beings;
and t hero can not, by any possibility,
be any more than fourteen.
T WELVE of t he s imple vowel sounds
possess the quality of being HARD, nonelastic, nud brittle, are produced in
straight lines and brenk off abruptly,
'rhe other TWO sim ple vowel soundsllmnber 6 an d number 12-possess the
quality of being SOFT, flexible and pliable, so t bat either one of t h e two SOFT
AND PLAST IC vowels can be p lastered 0 1'
molded onto the L.4.ST' END m' THE HARD
vowels, where they will ADHERE ,
A compound vowel sound is a HARD
and brittle vowel Round abru ptly bro·
ken off , wit h a SOFT and plastic vowel
sound molded upon it, so that t he TWO
sonnds seem to be but ONE sound,
The t wo soft and plastic vowels can
be molded upon each other so that the
TWO soft sounds will seem t o be but
O:-;'E,
'J'here ore TWELVE compound vowel
sounds ending with vowel nnmbel' SIX;
t hat is t o say, have t heil' ending in "e,"
flS in me, he, we, be, she, see, k ey; and
t here can be no more than twelve,
There are TWELVE com pound vowel
sounds emling in vowel number TWELVE;
t hat is t o say, they have their ending
in "00," as in too, boo, who, boot, boom,
loot, mood, pool, woo; a nd t h ere can be
no more t ban twelve.
It is uLtedy impossible for human
beings t o sound auy kind or variety
of compound vowels otber than the
12 + 12 = 24 just above named .
'l'he old letter Y, with its name
cbanged to Y(l, stands fOl' t he SOFT and
p lastic vowel number SIX, when it is
plasterod, 01' coned , upon the fIRST eud
of any hard and brittle vowel.
Th e old letter W, with its name
changed to we, s tands for tbe SOFT and
plastic vowel nnmher TII'.:LVE, wb en it
is combined with t h e FIRST end of a ny
bard and brit.tle vowel.
'rho old lett(ll"s Y a11d W have gen·
emily been consid ered CONSON,\ NTS and
they will still be use4 and bandied as
OO:-;'SONANTS, although in point of actua l
~'ACT they a re t ho represen tatives of
THOSE SAME TWO SOFT AND ·PLASTIO VOwELS t hat bave d eceived and ba tHed lin-
guists a nd ph ilologists during all the
ages t.hat a re gone.
ALL of these compound vowel sonnds
are in ACTUAL USE at tbe preseo t t ime
by millions of people,among the several
nations and tribes in many and "arions
parts of the ea r t h,
No ONE L ANGUAOE 0:-;' THE EARTH requil'es the nse of ALL of the 21 compou nd vowel sounds ; bu t some of t h e
la nguages require the use of only THREE
OR FOUR of t he m, oth ers only SIX OR
SEVEN of them, and OUI' own A.ngloSa xon bmgue requires the use of only
1'I"E of t hem,
In tabulating the twelve compouud
vowels ending in "e," as in me, he, be,
she, see, key, we, and p lacing them a ll
in theil' proper positions, t his rule is
used ;
~ On tbe second line, and immediately undel' the table of fourteen
s imple vowels, plnce each compound
vowel DIREOT LY U~DER the si mple vowel which forms the ~'IRST lIAU' of the
compound. ~
I n tabulating t he twelve compound
vowels ending in "00," as in too, boo,
who, boot, boom, loot, mood, poo l, 11'00,
a nd placing them in their proper positions, this rule is u sed :
~ On t h e third line, under t h e table
of fourteen simple vowels, p lace each
compound vowel DIRECTLY UNDE R t he
simple vowel which forms the FIRST
HALl' of the compound,
Since t h ere are 24 compouud vowels
for ALL THE WORLD, a nd s ince Out· language requ ires only FJVE of them, it
follows t hat t.here are 24-5=19 at
them used in othel' languages but NOT
REQUIRED I N OUR OWN; a nd therefore we
may leave NINETEEX .BLANK SPAQES in

ADVICE TO THE ST UDENT
Tbe student is advised to use the
TABLE OF 1I0DELS frequently for spelling SYLLABU;S liS well as short words,
'I' his '.ruble o f Models ranks n ext in
vu luo t o the Uni versal Alfabet itself,
is t he net result of t wenty-t wo separate
und independent discoveries und inventions, and furn ishes t he F,\ 'M'ERN on
l iODEL fal' s pelling E\'ERY WORD OF O:"<E
SY LLABLE Rnd EVERY S\" LLABLE TH AT
HUlIAN BEINGS ARE OAPABLE O ~' PRONOUNQING.
r3r The student may select long
words of t wo, three, or foul' syllables,
divide t hem in the most natural and
easy way, t ben spell oach SYLLABLE,
just the same us if it were a. SHOHT
WORO : and t hen pl'onOUllce ALL O~' TH E
SYLLABLES forming t he WHOLE WORD, ~
After a few hours PJ1ACTICE in this
wny, with t ho Tablo of Models IN FULL
VIEW, the spelling of lQ,llg words will
become NATURAL AND EASY, and the
student will be able t o s pell EVERY
WOR D TB,\T HE OAN DISTINO'l'LY UEAII
AND ACOIlRATELY PR(lNOU~ O E wit hout
consulting any book. The Fonetic
Primer, or the F onetic Churls, arc the
only" spelling books " t h e student will
over n eed,
It is t aken for granted t ha t the stud en t, by th is time, is familiar with the
FIRST TEN MODELS and is able to hand le
with case the fil'st four ru les for spell~
ing: n a mely, Rule First, Rule Second,
Rule Third, and Rule Fourth Limitoo,
lIud is a ble to explain them to ot hel'
stndents,
With this understanding we now prescnt
RULE FOURTH U NLIMITED, FOR SPELLI NG
~ When any consona nt stands befOI'e any other consona nt, in t he same
syllable 01' in the sam e s Lort word , the
fi rst consonant may bo ,blended with
th e next one by SOUND I ~O T IlE FIRS'!'
tlnd ~ AM! ~G T HE NEXT ONE in the same
breath , as if tbe TWO consonants were
but 01"£; then NA)1E OR BLE~D the remaining letters, and tben pronounce
the sy llable or the short wOI'd. ~
Remembor that R ulo li'il'st is NOT
supersed ed nor a bolis hed, It is STI LL
USED AND APPLIED in t hose parts of t he
word whore BLEND ING IS NOT AI'PLIED,
'fhi s blending of TWO CONSO~ANTS
may be done DEFORE the vowel or APTER
th e vowel, und sometimes both BEFORE
A~D AFTER TilE VOWEL,
It very frequent ly happens t hat l~ul e
F ourth Unlimited a nd R ule Second
can both be used and applied in t he
S.-\ME SYLLABLE or the SAME snORT WORD,
It a lso ver y fl'equent ly happens that
Ru le Four th Unlimited and Rule 'I'bird
CRn both be used and applied in the
SAllE SY LLABLE or t be SAI\IE SHORT WORD.
'l 'bis Unlimited Rule Fourt h g ives to
the studen t a WIDE FIELD OF LI BERTY in
spelling and adds a high pe rcen t..'lge
to his SPEED in word build ing, It is
nL-,o a very easy und ver y natural step
leading up to that g l'elt achievemen t,
CORREOT READ ING,
T his Rule Fourth Unlimited can be
used t o good ad\'antag(> in words ot

that in all cases ONE of t he three coni·

If there is 1\ consonant, o r consonflnts,
standing before the three letters which
you wis h to combine, t hen this is the
rule: ~ N ,un: each of the consonants
one or two -thllt are stunding BEFOHE
the combiued three, t ben SOUND the
comb ined threo as if the three letters
were but ONE letter, then NA3IE each of
t he remaining letters - if auy - lIud

Examples iu words of the 7th class:t-rot, k.iok, f·l'oct, t-rnp, trl'OX, b·roq,
k.rax, h-rnx, s. lab, q .lllill, s-lUll , t-rnd,
trr(lU. If the t hree lettel's whic h yon

ing a short wot'd of O:SE SYLLABLE, T he
work is the same.
Now, since t hore are TIIIlICE letters t o
be combined und one of them MUST bo
a vowel or a compound vowel, it fol·
lows as a mathematica l necessity t hat
the combinntion MUST take one of the

and II consonant, after model nUlllber
four = XOX.
SECO:-.'D FonM = two consonants and a
\'owol, after modelllumber, ~·l\' E=XXO.

I NTER-LINGUAL AND UN I VERSAL TYPE CASES
Having invented an alfabet for tho
use of tbe whole wodd, containing a.
table of 47 letters, and in a certa in
qualified sense a t;.'!.ble of 66 l etters, to
be used herenfter in the place of the
old Romuuic AJ fabot of 26 letters, nnd
a ll of t be otbor so-called ulfabets, it
became a t OIlCO necessary to provide
NEW TVPF.-C\SES, for the nse of the
PRINTERS of t he whole world, because
the NEW TYPES could not be la id in t he
OLD OASES and because the KEW OASES
must be so mnde as to be used by the
PliiNTERS OF ALL !,\ATJO!'\S: tbat is to say,
that tb e type-cases of the English and
American langunge must also be at the
sam e tim 0 tho type-cases foL' the
German, t be French, the Span ish, the
Russian and all other languages, all
over the earth,
After qnite a n extensive and very
carefu l exa minntion of the type-cHses
in many printing plnnts, the author of
t his book bu ilt the n ecessary typecases to hold the types for printing
the USIVEIlSAL ALFAl\ET, wh ich meaus

words of aU the Innguagesspoken upon

applied for a. paten t upon them, 'I'hey
81'e made in "standard sizes" and will
fit into Ilny of the slides in any composing room in any printing p la nt in
America,
Those n i n e tee n compound vowel
types t hat are VERY RARELY USED in the
English and American language (and
NE"ER used except wben needed to
spell some FOREIGN" wOI'd, or to spell
some BROOUE, or some 111SPROSOUNOl::D
word in Ollr own language), are now laid
away in t he UARE CASE, fOl' occasional
use, 'I 'm, RARE CASE contains SIX EXTR A
small boxes, so t hat the Englisb and
American printers - if they wish to do
so - can take out letter unmber 11 used only in one word - and the two
DEFEOTl\'E ASPIRATES - number 40 and
number 42 - and placo them iu the
RARE-GASE, out of the way, letlving them!j>eh'es 44 letters for cveryduy use,
'l'be printers of other nntions call do
the same thing, take ont those let ters
ill their regular cases wh ich tbey VERY
SELDOll USE, and lay them in the RARE
CAS!::, out of the way, and leave t hemselves 42 to 48 - more or Jess - for
