In this edition j has been printed instead of where the character has consonantal force, since without such differentiation the pupil must be entirely at a loss to know whether i before a vowel is consonantal or vocalic. Following the example of the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, I have also regularly printed aff- (not adf-), agg- (not adg-), arr- (not adr-), ass- (not ads-), ast- (not adst-), etc., in prepositional compounds.
The Vocabulary has been independently prepared by Dr. John C. Watson, of Cornell University, on the basis of a careful study of all instances of the different words.
Grateful acknowledgments are hereby tendered to Dr. Watson, and also to Professor Charles L. Durham and Professor H. C. Elmer for valuable criticisms and sugges tions on the notes of this volume.
