From the ature of the case, it is
necessary tiat te larger. ouount of
instruction to one's native tongue e
dogmatic; that is, tiio studet is told
what is "right" and what is "wrong,"
what he "ought" to do0 and what ho
"mlut not.' Ilence the study of lan-
guage as a science is generally re-
stricted to the field of foreign an-
guges, sod especially the pst stages
of these. That this is duo to our ped-
agogical traditions aind exigencies and
eot to the nature of the subject is
easily shown. As a set of natural
phenomena a lnguage is what is
thought or spoken; what gets written
down and preserved in tis form is
hut an insignificnt part, and It is
always very imperfectly represented.
