Outline Corrections

Rechecking and improvements to shorthand passages are ongoing, and corrections are added here as necessary:

Pitman's New Era: Calvin abbreviate nevertheless panic feud paragraph venturing

Pitman's New Era: destination chewing converted intact girdle Antonio suet pupil hesitation British

*This uses full strokes, to stop it looking like "Roger"

 

Theory 7 Hooks R L page, first line of outlines: typo corrected, 2nd to last outline is "grew"

Pitman's New Era: computers, someone else, stay, freckle, shelf
computers
, someone else, stay freckle shelf

The singular "computer" uses doubling, because the diphthong sign can be joined to it.

The medial W sign in "someone" can be omitted, but writing it in prevents misreading as "something else".

"stay" was shown incorrectly reversed on Theory 4 Circle page in the Quick Reference Table.

"freckle" has the F stroke on the line, and not the K.

"shelf" was shown incorrectly in the 805 Basic English Words PDF, corrected 9Nov2014.

Pitman's New Era: plotter fowler stash stashed invite uninhabited uninhabitable
 

plotter fowler stash* stashed* invite uninhabited uninhabitable

*Not in dictionary, but the rules are that Ish does not take an initial Stee loop

Pitman's New Era: hint hints hindered hindrance hound hundred hunt huntress
hint hints hindered
* hindrance hound hundred hunt huntress

*Typo for third outline corrected 12Apr2014 to "hindered" (this had been shown as "hind")

Phrasing 8 Intersections page:

Pitman's New Era: at the beginning of the year, beginning of the book, from the beginning, from the beginning to the end, from beginning to end
