_The hyphen in initial words indicates the composition of the words_.
Those who failed to interpret the words, or to extract the idea from them, reiterated the _words_ to themselves, and would perhaps be able to repeat the words again, but they do so in the same manner that a person reads or repeats words in an unknown tongue.
But even this is not enough, where the child is dull, or where healthful mental exercise is required; and accordingly in that case, the teacher not only questions upon the clauses in connection with the other principal words, but he takes the _words_, of which the clauses are composed, and catechises the child upon them also.
The child will then be able -- not to repeat the words only, for that is not the effect of this exercise, -- but to communicate the ideas in his _own words_; which, however, will generally be found to be the very same as in the book.
In (_a_) the application of _words_ is limited, or restricted, to the two words mentioned; in (_c_) _words_ is restricted to a certain kind.
Words that are read more forcibly than other words in a sentence are called _emphatic words_.
_Ideas are never words_ nor are _words ever ideas_, but words become so
_The drift from God is a movement of events, a propulsion of vital experience, not a parade of words to be diverted by other words_.
Lady Rosamond clung to those kind words with a fond pertinacity: not only the _words_, but the manner in which they were uttered.
If you cannot yet translate the sentence, put down the English meanings of all the words _in the same order as the Latin words_.
