In Progress

Year 2012 Rewriting some of the shorthand on the blogs more neatly and providing facility drill books for that year, see Blog Downloads page on the Reading website for progress on this.

The slow dictations for 2012 have been completed.

Outline Corrections

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

 

 

 

Pitman's New Era: localised
localised
Triphone: Three consecutive vowels in Pitman's Shorthand are called a triphone (i.e. a diphthong plus another vowel). I have removed the word "triphthong" in various pages and blogs.

In Linguistics, "triphthong" is the correct word for 3 vowels in succession, and a "triphone" means 3 phonemes in succession (not necessarily vowels), so usage in that subject is different from the terminology in Pitman's Shorthand books.

 

Pitman's New Era: agency playwright untenable plethora welcomed stabilise banger ampere

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

Sydney squirrel irrelevant Richardbomber corridor searcher

*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 here 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
at the beginning of the year, beginning of the book, from the beginning, from the beginning to the end, from beginning to end

"from the beginning" has been corrected with the "tick the" (27 Sep 2013)

 

BlogSpot article of 17 August 2013 Eezee Alphabet - The first dot "The" should be on the line
 
Amendments 16 July 2013 - Several discrepancies have been found in the largest 1974 red dictionary, in comparison with the dictionaries produced before and after it, and so the outlines here have been corrected:

These should be in 2nd position on the line:
horticulture/al, horticulturist, hypothecate/d, inauspicious, inauspiciously, indescribable/ly, jurisprudence, machinery, scornful, scornfully, significancy, unscriptural, vice-chairman.

Contractions Main
"re-establish/ed/ment" should have a dot vowel after the Ray
