While this book can be used in junior high, it is a comprehensive grammar text that can also be used through high school. It is a revised edition of a nineteenth century text, which is evident in some of the subject matter and vocabulary as well as the style of presentation.
The book is divided into four parts: orthography (study of letters, syllables, sounds, and spelling), etymology (meaning parts of speech, tense, number, mode, and other attributes of words as they are used in sentences), syntax (study of punctuation plus the study of sentences, their elements, and the relationships of parts), and prosody (study of accent, quality and tone of language as well as technical aspects of poetry). Harvey's goes beyond any grammar texts commonly used today, particularly in the fourth section. An answer key is available.
