quired in any case; as in, accounta&Ze, actionabZe, admirafcZe,
agreea&Ze, censurable, claimaMe, combusti&Ze, comforta&Ze,
habitable, honoura&Ze, lauda&Ze, legible, memorable, miserable,

124 Phrases.

XXXIII. A AND The PHRASES. The articles a and the
should generally be joined after prepositions, conjunctions and
auxiliaries ;

The is joined as an upward tick after: above, across,
all, among, and, are, as, be, been, before, between, by, can,
does, during, even, for, has, have, if, in, is (sy), on, o'er (ooy),
shall, since, than, till, up, upon, was (ASY), when, within.

The is joined as a downward tick after the words : about,
after, against, at, behind, beneath, beyond, but, called, could,
except, from, had, hath, how, into, not, of, out (of), round,
should, so, that, think, though, thought, through, throughout,
to, toward, under, unto, what, with, without, would.

A may be joined after any of the above words, except o'er,
after, under, which end in o.

XXXIV. AUXILIARY PHRASES. The words have and be
should be joined after can, could, may, might, must, ought-to,
sJia(H), sltould, will, would. The words had, been and become,
should be joined after has, have, hath, had. The words do and
think should be joined after shall, should, will, ought-to.

In all cases words involving similar joinings may be attached
in phrases of this kind ; thus, believe, become, be able to,
present the same joining as be ; take joins like think and do.

The following words join well after be; this (that etc.),
thought, done, proud, pleased, proposed, probafc/e, felt, feared,
foreseen, found, afraid, vain, called, considered ; words begin-
ning with p, b, f or v, also join well after have.

XXXV. NEGATIVE PHRASES. The word not may be joined
after be, can, do, have, m(ay), should, shall, will. The phrases,
does not, has not, mus(t) not, was not, are written on the analogy
of it is not. The negative may be expressed by a cross-stroke
after will, shall, had, should, would, could, might, ought to.

INTERSECTION. Before be, been, have, do, mean, say, think,
and similar words, the negative is generally expressed by inter-
section, especially after the auxiliaries, can, could, may, might,
will, would, sliall, should, ought, must, had, have, do. In phrases,
such as should not be, ought not to be, where intersection is
awkward, the second word is written close below the first ; the
negative itself should be written if great precision is required.
