The Stenographical Copy-Book, or Short-Hand Instructor

The Stenographical Copy-Book, or Short-Hand Instructor Excerpt from The Stenographical Copy Book, or Short Hand Instructor Containing the Characters Which Compose the Short Hand Alphabet, a Progressive Series of Elementary Lessons, and Various Select Specimens of Elegant StenographyIn the next place, a particular attention must be paid to the method of expressing the vowels, in Short hand, by dots or points, either before or after single consonants, and also in the middle of words, when they occur between two consonants All these different positions of the vowels are fully illustrated by a series of what may not inaptly be called, nonsense examples, in Plates IX and X, in the present Work, the typographical explanations being given in twelve successive pages of the Introduction to Byrom s Short Hand, commencing at page 5, and ending on page 16 As there is a puzzling diversity, which creates some dificulty to Learners, in placing the vowels, before and after the horizontal curves, which denote the letters m, n, g, and ch, the Author has subjoined an extra line, at the bottom of Plate IX, which, he trusts, will completely obviate this difficulty, and manifest, by means of a similar character, formed of three straight lines, that the principle of before or above, for leading vowels, and after or below, for those which follow the Short hand character, is strictly adhered to, with respect to the four letters above named It may perhaps be useful to mention here, that no distinction, either in the size of the vowel i, or in the form of the vowel u, is intended to be made, excepting when they are used alone, and especially at the beginning of a line or a sentence, to denote the oft recurring pronouns, I and yaw Sometimes, indeed, a long vowel is indicated by making the point which represents it, somewhat larger also when two vowels come together, the first of them, whichever it may be, is made a little larger, to distingmsh it from that which follows But when the vowels a, e, or 0 are doubled, the double points representing those vowels, are to be made of equal size Also in the very common termination ous, the points which represent the two vowels on, may be made of equal size.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
