Pitman New Era — had the most developed set of rules and abbreviation lists.
Pitman —present introduced some simplifications and drastically reduced the list of abbreviations to reduce the memory load, officially reduced to a list of short forms. The later versions dropped certain symbols and introduced other simplifications to earlier versions.
For example, strokes "rer" heavy curved downstroke and "kway" hooked horizontal straight stroke are present in Pitman's New Era, but not in Pitman's Pitman was asked to create a shorthand system of his own in He had used Samuel Taylor's system for seven years, but his symbols bear greater similarity to the older Byrom system. The first phonetician to invent a system of shorthand, Pitman used similar-looking symbols for phonetically related sounds.
For example, the dental and alveolar consonants are upright: He used it in the —67 trial of the conspirators behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. In Australia the system was introduced by another Pitman brother, Jacob. The epitaph is written phonetically.
At one time, Pitman was the most commonly used shorthand system in the entire English-speaking world. Today in many regions especially the U. Teeline has become more common in recent years, as it is based on spelling, rather than pronunciation.
Like Gregg shorthand , Pitman shorthand is phonetic; with the exception of abbreviated shapes called logograms, words are written exactly as they are pronounced. There are twenty-four consonants that can be represented in Pitman's shorthand, twelve vowels and four diphthongs. The consonants are indicated by strokes, the vowels by interposed dots.
Common words are represented by special outlines called logograms or "Short Forms" in Pitman's New Era. Words and phrases which have such forms are called grammalogues. Hundreds exist and only a tiny number are shown above. The shapes are written separately to show that they represent distinct words, but in common phrases "you are", "thank you", etc.
The consonants in Pitman's shorthand are pronounced bee, pee, dee, tee, jay, chay, gay, kay, vee, eff, thee, ith, zee, ess, zhee, ish, em, el, en, ray ar, ing, way, yay, and hay. When both an unvoiced consonant and its corresponding voiced consonant are present in this system, the distinction is made by drawing the stroke for the voiced consonant thicker than the one for the unvoiced consonant. There are two strokes for r: There are rules governing when to use each of these forms. The long vowels in Pitman's shorthand are: The long vowels may be remembered by the sentence, "Pa, may we all go too?
A vowel is represented by a dot or a dash, which can be written either lightly or heavily depending on the vowel needed. As this gives only four symbols, they can be written in three different positions — either at the beginning, middle or end of a consonant stroke — to represent the 12 vowels.
The dots and dashes representing long vowels are darker than the ones representing short vowels. Another feature of Pitman's shorthand allows most vowels to be omitted in order to speed up the process of writing.
As mentioned above, each vowel is written next to the consonant stroke at the beginning, middle or end of the stroke. American female voice. Stenolife www. YouTube www. American male voice. Internet Archive www. Very clear American male voice.

Shelton's system became very popular and is well known because it was used by Samuel Pepys for his diary and for many of his official papers, such as his letter copy books.
It was also used by Sir Isaac Newton in some of his notebooks. Each consonant was represented by an arbitrary but simple symbol, while the five vowels were represented by the relative positions of the surrounding consonants. Thus the symbol for B with symbol for T drawn directly above it represented "bat", while B with T below it meant "but"; top-right represented "e", middle-right "i", and lower-right "o". A vowel at the end of a word was represented by a dot in the appropriate position, while there were additional symbols for initial vowels.
This basic system was supplemented by further symbols representing common prefixes and suffixes. One drawback of Shelton's system was that there was no way to distinguish long and short vowels or diphthongs; so the b-a-t sequence could mean "bat", or "bait", or "bate", while b-o-t might mean "boot", or "bought", or "boat". The reader needed to use the context to work out which alternative was meant. The main advantage of the system was that it was easy to learn and to use. It was popular, and under the two titles of Short Writing and Tachygraphy, Shelton's book ran to more than 20 editions between and Shelton's chief rivals were Theophilus Metcalfe 's Stenography or Short Writing which was in its "55th edition" by , and Jeremiah Rich 's system of , which was published under various titles including The penns dexterity compleated Another notable English shorthand system creator of the 17th century was William Mason fl.
Tombstone of Heinrich Roller , inventor of a German shorthand system, with a sample of his shorthand Modern-looking geometric shorthand was introduced with John Byrom 's New Universal Shorthand of Samuel Taylor published a similar system in , the first English shorthand system to be used all over the English-speaking world. Thomas Gurney published Brachygraphy in the midth century.
Gabelsberger based his shorthand on the shapes used in German cursive handwriting rather than on the geometrical shapes that were common in the English stenographic tradition. Hebrew Shorthand Taylor's system was superseded by Pitman shorthand , first introduced in by English teacher Sir Isaac Pitman , and improved many times since. Pitman's system has been used all over the English-speaking world and has been adapted to many other languages, including Latin. Pitman's system uses a phonemic orthography.
For this reason, it is sometimes known as phonography, meaning "sound writing" in Greek. One of the reasons this system allows fast transcription is that vowel sounds are optional when only consonants are needed to determine a word. The availability of a full range of vowel symbols, however, makes complete accuracy possible. Isaac's brother Benn Pitman, who lived in Cincinnati , Ohio , was responsible for introducing the method to America.
The record for fast writing with Pitman shorthand is wpm during a two-minute test by Nathan Behrin in Not until the ability to write shorthand without mental hesitation has been acquired, should speed practice begin.
A student observing the note-taking of an experienced stenographer will be struck with admiration at the smoothness of the writing and the perfect regularity of the outlines. An excellent method of practice for the like facility is in the copying of a selection sentence by sentence until the whole is memorized, and then writing it over and over again.
All notes taken at any speed should strictly be compared with the printed matter. It will then be found that many words are taken for others because of the forms they assume when written under pressure. Most of these can be avoided by careful attention to the writing. Experience alone will authorize any deviation from the text-book forms.
Phrasing should be indulged in sparingly on unfamiliar matter. But on familiar matter the student should always be alert for opportunities of saving both time and effort by employing the principles of intersection, elimination of consonants and the joining of words of frequent occurrence. Nothing less than absolute accuracy should satisfy the student.
Conflicting outlines should be carefully distinguished. Where words may be distinguished either by the insertion of vowels or the changing of one of the outlines, the latter should always be the method employed; vowels should freely be inserted whenever possible.
The sense of the matter should be carefully preserved by the punctuation of the notes, indicating the full stop and leaving spaces in the notes between phrases.
The best matter of the for the student beginning practice for speed is to be found in the dictation books compiled by the publishers of the system. At first, the dictation should be slow to permit the making of careful outlines.
Gradually the speed should be increased until the student is obliged to exert himself to keep pace with the reader; and occasionally short bursts of speed should be attempted as tests of the writer's progress. The student ambitious to succeed will endeavor to familiarize himself with all matters pertaining to stenography. By reading the shorthand magazines he will keep himself in touch with the latest developments in the art.
