Sample text

Allspice is the name of a particular spice, pimento, and should not be called allspices. allude; refer. To allude is to refer casually or indirectly. It calls attention covertly. When a man is alluded to he is not named; it is simply obvious that the remark is applicable to him (He alludes to enterprises which he cannot reveal but with the hazard of his life). To refer is to direct attention specifically. One refers to a book by its title and author and to a passage in it by the page. When one seeking employment gives a reference, he names a particular person from whom his prospective employer may obtain information about him.

People are usually spoken of as amiable; attitudes, dispositions, arrangements and settlements as amicable (An amiable man is usually willing to make an amicable settlement). An amiable person is sweet tem- pered, kind, gentle, thoughtful of others..

Not all is and all is not usually mean exactly the same thing. Some grammarians claim that the last part of the line What though the field be lost? All z’s not lost! is a slovenly construc- allege tion which, in strict logic, means that none is lost. By the same reasoning, not all the water in the rough rude sea can wash the balm from an anointed king, is held to mean, again speak- ing strictly, merely that some cannot. There is no foundation at all for this distinction. In both cases, regardless of where it appears, not negatives the entire sentence.
