Pitman's shorthand writing exercises and examination tests; a series of graduated exercises on every rule in the system and adapted for use Full catalog recordMARCXML Subject: This book deals with 'twentieth century edition' shorthand.
And finally he will join a shorthand society where he will come in contact with other stenographers who are striving toward the same goal as himself. In Europe, particularly in Great Britain there are thousands of educational institutions teaching Pitman's shorthand.
In the United States and some other parts of the world it has been largely superseded by Gregg shorthand , which was first published in by John Robert Gregg. This system was influenced by the handwriting shapes that Gabelsberger had introduced. Gregg's shorthand, like Pitman's, is phonetic, but has the simplicity of being "light-line. In fact, Gregg claimed joint authorship in another shorthand system published in pamphlet form by one Thomas Stratford Malone; Malone, however, claimed sole authorship and a legal battle ensued.
For instance, on page 10 of the manual is the word d i m 'dim'; however, in the Gregg system the spelling would actually mean n u k or 'nook'. Geometric theory has great influence in Japan. But Japanese motions of writing gave some influence to our shorthand. We are proud to have reached the highest speed in capturing spoken words with a pen.
Major pen shorthand systems are Shuugiin, Sangiin, Nakane and Waseda [a repeated vowel shown here means a vowel spoken in double-length in Japanese, sometimes shown instead as a bar over the vowel]. Including a machine-shorthand system, Sokutaipu, we have 5 major shorthand systems now.
The Japan Shorthand Association now has 1, members. In addition, there is the Yamane pen shorthand of unknown importance and three machine shorthands systems Speed Waapuro, Caver and Hayatokun or sokutaipu. The machine shorthands have gained some ascendancy over the pen shorthands.
There are several semi-cursive systems. The two Japanese syllabaries are themselves adapted from the Chinese characters both of the syllabaries, katakana and hiragana, are in everyday use alongside the Chinese characters known as kanji; the kanji, being developed in parallel to the Chinese characters, have their own idiosyncrasies, but Chinese and Japanese ideograms are largely comprehensible, even if their use in the languages are not the same.
Prior to the Meiji era, Japanese did not have its own shorthand the kanji did have their own abbreviated forms borrowed alongside them from China. Takusari Kooki was the first to give classes in a new Western-style non-ideographic shorthand of his own design, emphasis being on the non-ideographic and new.
This was the first shorthand system adapted to writing phonetic Japanese, all other systems prior being based on the idea of whole or partial semantic ideographic writing like that used in the Chinese characters, and the phonetic approach being mostly peripheral to writing in general.
Even today, Japanese writing uses the syllabaries to pronounce or spell out words, or to indicate grammatical words. Furigana are written alongside kanji, or Chinese characters, to indicate their pronunciation especially in juvenile publications. Furigana are usually written using the hiragana syllabary; foreign words may not have a kanji form and are spelled out using katakana.
This led to a thriving industry of sokkibon shorthand books. The ready availability of the stories in book form, and higher rates of literacy which the very industry of sokkibon may have helped create, due to these being oral classics that were already known to most people may also have helped kill the yose theater, as people no longer needed to see the stories performed in person to enjoy them.
Sokkibon also allowed a whole host of what had previously been mostly oral rhetorical and narrative techniques into writing, such as imitation of dialect in conversations which can be found back in older gensaku literature; but gensaku literature used conventional written language in between conversations, however. Stenographic shorthands can be further differentiated by the target letter forms as geometric, script, and semi-script or elliptical.
Geometric shorthands are based on circles, parts of circles, and straight lines placed strictly horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The first modern shorthand systems were geometric. The first system of this type was published under the title Cadmus Britanicus by Simon Bordley, in However, the first practical system was the German Gabelsberger shorthand of This class of system is now common in all more recent German shorthand systems, as well as in Austria, Italy, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Russia, other Eastern European countries, and elsewhere.
Script-geometric, or semi-script, shorthands are based on the ellipse.
Semi-script can be considered a compromise between the geometric systems and the script systems. However, the most successful system of this type was Gregg shorthand , introduced by John Robert Gregg in Gregg had studied not only the geometric English systems, but also the German Stolze stenography, a script shorthand.
The semi-script philosophy gained popularity in Italy in the first half of the 20th century with three different systems created by Giovanni Vincenzo Cima, Erminio Meschini, and Stenital Mosciaro. Systems resembling standard writing[ edit ] Some shorthand systems attempted to ease learning by using characters from the Latin alphabet.
Such non-stenographic systems have often been described as alphabetic, and purists might claim that such systems are not 'true' shorthand. However, these alphabetic systems do have value for students who cannot dedicate the years necessary to master a stenographic shorthand.
Alphabetic shorthands cannot be written at the speeds theoretically possible with symbol systems— words per minute or more—but require only a fraction of the time to acquire a useful speed of between 60 and words per minute.
Non-stenographic systems often supplement alphabetic characters by using punctuation marks as additional characters, giving special significance to capitalised letters, and sometimes using additional non-alphabetic symbols.
