N. B. Eth, or ish, added to a primitive word, will increase that word in a tenfold proportion, Also the termination ing, joined to a word, will increase it an hundred fold, viz.—the eth, or ish, added to any one of the foregoing words, will raise that word one nought higher, and the termination ing, will raise it two noughts higher. By this arrangement you will be able with the preceeding words, viz.-from 1 to 99, to express any number from 1 to 9900, with one word, which will be found to be of great utility.
Examples of the eth, and ish, air=8,--air-eth= 80,—fool=35,-fool-eth=350. Examples of ing; dare=28,—dare-ing=2800,--tax=90,--tax-ing= 9000.
You need never regard the primitive word, ending in e final, when you add any of the terminations to it, as you will always know for what parpose it is united, and we do not hold forth to teach the grammatical construction of language, but the Science of Mnemonics, or art of assisting the Memory.
Take notice, that by adding the termination ing to any word that has x or z you will get your round thousands. Examples-box-ing=1000,--doze-ins =2000;-fix-ing=3000, &c.
