AFTfcR examining the French pronunciation, With

From the different ways in which the fame found is re
presented—ad. From th* usual way of exprefling differ- w<
ctit fotlnds—3d. And from the want of means fit to c<*n- eft
vey to th mind these founds with simplicity and clearnef*. be
Convinced that to remove these difficulties, or at least
to lefTn them, is an attempt worthy the attention of
those who are desirous to learn the French iauguage. _
P. L. Portier, most rtfpewkfully offers his services to
the enlightened public of this city, in order to teaeh the fu
French tongue, cfpecially the reading of it, by a method
yet unpra&ifi-d any where. cc
This method, simple in itfelf, is to convey to the mind, -
by means of particular chara&ers, every kind of founds, -
and word», without any regard to the letters tiled to com- P 1
Each chara&er will express one fyliable, representing to
the mkid the only French found proper for it these cha
ra&trs are so easy to form, and o recollcsl, thartbe mean f
elt conception may thoroughly nnderftand them in kf>
than a month.
Asfoow as the scholar is acquainted with these charac
Itrs, he cannot be at a loss in the reading of any Frene
words, becaufehe will find in the table of characters, an .i c
observations th reon, the right way of pronouncing ever y
Another advantage deriving from this method, is tn ] -
«na,ble the Learner to.. adapt mmn
tongue; which he may find very convenient, either to g
write private notes, or even correspond with any one ha l ?
ing a knowledge of them.
The indention of the anther is to keep an Evcnir
School from 7 to 9, and to attend -t the h'oufes of tho
Ladies and Gentlemen who may be pleased to honoi- t
him with their commands. He will teach every da
Sundays excepted, one hour by leiTbn, during which, hi

He may presume to affurc his patrons, that the great (ft
