Having said that, you will find typical phonemes in English—“sh”, “th”, “ch”—that need a mixture of letters into the Roman alphabet, but can each be written with a solitary letter in Gregg. “Though,” which, in longhand, requires six complex symbols strung as well as seven brief ligatures, is rendered with two quick shots in Gregg: “th-o.” But Gregg goes further, eliding unstressed vowels and unvoiced consonants to get at the nugget that is phonetic of word: “bed” is created as “b-d”; “act” as “a-k”; “done” as “d-n”. This economy of spelling saves another 10 % associated with the time that is note-taker’s.</p> <p>Nevertheless the impact that is biggest from Gregg shorthand arises from its systematic way of abbreviation. By way of example, virtually every page in Gregg, compiled by it self, represents a typical term. Most are useful for several various terms, with regards to the context. Our Gregg friend “b” can mean “be”, “by”, or “but”. The Gregg letter “r” can suggest “are”, “our”, or “hour.” The Gregg letter “t” can indicate “it” or “at.” In this manner, almost 100 of the very most typical terms in English may be rendered in a stroke that is single. <a href="https://beulah.com/2019/10/24/there-you-have-got-it-a-course-that-is-short-the-3/" class="more-link"><span aria-label="Continue reading There you have got it: a course that is short the technology that made the Irishman John Robert Gregg A american tycoon in the 1st 50 % of the 20th Century.">(more…)</span></a></p> There you have got it: a course that is short the technology that made the Irishman John Robert Gregg A american tycoon in the 1st 50 % of the 20th Century.
