Manner. We use this word to denote the mode or style in which anyone speaks or acts. It is also employed in the sense of species or kind, e. g. "all manner of four-footed beasts, &c."


Whence is this derived? I think that the word thus used must come from, maneries, by which term some of the schoolmen (such as John of Salisbury) denoted species. He derives it from maneo, and views it as signifying the state in which anything abides, the permanent character of anything. In this point of view the two meanings of manner will be seen not to be wholly unconnected.

Caught in the manner gives another sense of the word. It should be caught with the manner = manour, caught with the stolen article in the hand.
