PREFACE. 



THE design of this book is to assist inexperienced writers to 
read \vbat they have written, and to make the introduction of 
vowels less necessary by proficient reporters. To every one, 
however, who writes shorthand no matter what system it 
will be found useful. In plain words, it is a Dictionary ; and 

ift, as its compilation has taken more than six years of close 
3 application, and the writer throughout has had a great desire 

> for making it complete, and worthy of universal approval, he 

1 feels sure that, no matter how thoroughly practical and 

2 experienced a writer may be, it will not be undeserving of a 
place on his desk. 

ro The introduction of participles, adverbs, affixes, and other 

derivatives greatly enhances the value of the book to even the 

- most proficient shorthand writer ; some of them, however, 

~* may appear unnecessary ; but I wish to state, that in such 

instances they are given to show that the arranged characters 

ui can represent no other word. Thus, after PEL it might appear 

J3 unnecessary to give PELS for perils ; but PRLS also represents 

"D 

i- peerless, and other words ; if, therefore, LMTS is given after LMT 
(limit), it shows that I/MTS can only be limits. 

With, a view of making the work still more complete, it 
will be seen that it is adapted to those systems which do not 
ignore C ; nevertheless, all words beginning with C will also 



448351 



PiiU'ACE. 



be found under S when soft, and K when hard. In addition 
to this, when C ia not an initial letter it will, in order to adapt 
the work to systems without C, be found classified according 
to its sound. Thus KCD (recede) will also be found along with 
RSD. In point of fact, I have nob been deterred by difficulties, 
intricate and Inextricable as many of them appeared, from 
making the work really acceptable. A common dictionary 
could not be made the basis of compilation, because, whilst the 
omission of vowels rendered the classification entirely distinct, 
the changing of C into S or K, to accommodate all systems, 
also made such distinction all the more unique. The following 
examples will illustrate the transference of C into K or S : 

CLR KLR colour. 

LCTR LKTR lecture. 

PLCD PLSD placid. 

PLNC PLNS opulence. 

It will therefore be seen that the changing of C into S or K 
alters the classification of a word, not merely when C is the 
initial letter, but also when it is the second, third, or last. I 
have, however, not thought it necessary to change C, if, not- 
withstanding such change, the word occupied a contiguous 
position ; for example, I have not written RPRDS (reproduce) in 
addition to RPRDC, there being no more words following with 
RPRD, and a duplicate contiguous spelling would be superfluous. 
(See introduction to letter C.) 

With respect to the want of a shorthand dictionary, some 
of the troubles and difficulties of a junior or occasional reporter 
are given in a work entitled " The Young Reporter." It is 
said that a young man, who was sent to take a report of a 
meeting, fouud himself so unable to afterwards read what he 
had written, that he flung his book into the river, and told his 
principal ho had unfortunately left it in a cab. Another 



PREFACE. vii 

gentleman, who, in the pressure of business, was sent on a 
similar errand, was no more heard of, till it was reported that 
he was doing well in America. But a third gentleman was so 
deeply impressed with a sense of his incompetency for reading 
his notes, that, rather than face the editor, he went out and 
hanged himself. I well remember my own troubles when I 
began to report for the press, and many weary hours of the 
night have I spent in transcribing notes for the want of a book 
like this, which to me would then have been worth its weight 
in gold. In fact, it requires time and practice to familiarize 
the mind with words divested of such important sounding 
letters as vowels ; for instance, I well remember the anxiety of 
mind I experienced because I could not make out what word 
an eminent M.P. had used in an after-dinner speech, which, in 
my note-book, was represented by PLGS. I had to leave it to a 
later contemporary to inform the hon. member's constituents 
that he did not think it necessary to apologize in reference to a 
certain vote in the House. I did not lose my situation, but I 
dare not say what the consequence was. How many tales of 
this kind can an elderly member of the "Fourth Estate" 
recall. 

Doubtless much of a junior's perplexity arises from indis- 
tinct writing; but it must be admitted, that even when 
characters are properly formed, they are not always easily read, 
and for this reason thousands of business men who have 
acquired the ability for writing a little shorthand have had to 
" give it up." Yet shorthand must be of great value to pro- 
fessional and commercial men. It requires, for instance, 
twenty-one distinct strokes of the pen to write such a word as 
streams, and no less than seven for every Jt that is written. 

It is, however, now admitted, that shorthand is indispen- 
sable in every large business establishment, and this has given 
rise to the oft-repeated question, " Which is the best system ?" 



viii PREFACE. 

My answer to this question is alwaj r s, " That which is most 
easy to acquire." Proficiency does not depend so much on the 
system used as the ability for using it. dell's, or Taylor's 
Improved, which are substantially the same, are, I believe, 
most used by newspaper reporters. This is probably owing to 
their being so easy to write and so ready to acquire. Great 
efforts have recently been made to bring Mr. Pitman's system 
of phonography into more general use, and, when acquired, it 
is probably an excellent system. Mr. Melville Bell, however, 
has introduced a new system of phonetic shorthand as an 
improvement on Pitman's. There may yet be others, but care 
must be taken that, in aiming at making a system short, it is 
not made long. I must confess that some of the " improved 
phonetics" have a very wriggled appearance, and the multitude 
of details with which they are burthened must greatly militate 
against their general adoption for public use. The fact is, 
Pitman's system of phonography, like OdelFs stenography, 
will be a sort of central basis for many others, round which 
they will revolve like so many satellites, the writers of a 
phonetic style preferring sound as their guide, and those who 
follow Odell, complacently relying on the readiness of a simple 
and uniform plan.

B. 

THIS being the first consonant in the English alphabet, it 
becon.es the first letter in all systems of shorthand. As the 
initial letter of words, it is only superseded in point of numbers 
by C, S, P, and D (the latter about 350); but it is almost 
entirely initiative, for there is no other letter in the shorthand 
alphabet which so seldom forms a subsequent letter. In 
addition to this, there are only 136 instances in which it takes 
the initiative by dropping the preceding vowel, viz., a 70 times, 
f 3 times, i never, o 61 times, and u twice. In rapid speaking 
it is not murdered like the semi-vowels, as it cannot be sounded 
at all without prt . ing the whole length of the -lips together. 
As a rule, therefore, B gives less trouble to the reporter than 
any other letter, pi*oviding he be careful of the prefixes. 

PREFIXES. B forms the following prefixes: 62', bi-weekly ; 
/', bespoke. Ab and ob are most common in the instances 
referred to above.

SHORTHAND DICTIONAET. 



a 

THERE are more words beginning with this letter than any 
other in the English language. This is owing to its having 
two sounds, for example, k, as in can; and s, as in cessation; 
and when the numerous words are added to the list, in conse- 
quence of dropping the preceding vowel, such as accoi-Jin>j, 
occur, eclipse, economy, etc., we see the wisdom of retaining it 
in any system of shorthand. It is no use writing what cannot 
be read, afterwards, and in these days of expeditious publishing 
it is essential that what is written should be such as can be 
readily transcribed. For these reasons experience has always 
convinced me that a consonant which so frequently occurs, not 
only in forming the initiative letter, but also the subsequent 
parts of words, cannot be dispensed with without inconve- 
nience. However, with a view to adapt this dictionary to all 
systems, I have carefully placed under K and S, according to 
their sound, all words beginning with C, in addition to their 
proper appearance under this letter. It may also be here 
remarked, that, as a rule, the plain and distinct commence- 
ment of a word is the most essential portion of it, and for that 
reason the use of signs, where a vowel takes a large share in 
the first syllable, is to be much commended: for example, ar. 
(a perpendicular hyphen), ex (a hyphen), con or com (a dot), ad 
(an oblique hyphen joined to d), and at (the same joined to t). 
Of course, in all these examples the signs are detached from 
the following consonant, except in the two latter instances, 
where the vowel a is an oblique hyphen, and therefore so 
easily joined to d or t in writing addition or attention. But 
then there are words which the sign ac can have nothing to 
do with; and in addition to this, as already intimated, C is a 
powerful letter in the middle of words. I find, indeed, that in 
two-thirds, or almost three-fourths, of the instances where c 
does not commence a word, that it is soft in sound, and there- 
fore, in systems where no c is used, it greatly tends to over- 
burthen the letter S, which ranks next to C in point of numbers 
in the commencement of words, and for its frequent occurrence 
in the formation of syllables, is the most common sound in the 
12

English language. If the schoolmaster sees the propriety of 
cautioning his pupil to " mind his p's and q's," let the short- 
hand writer, -who has a far more difficult and important task 
to perform, mind his c's and s's. I make these remarks not 
with a view to induce any gentleman to alter his system, with 
which he is familiar, if he have no c in his alphabet, but for 
the guidance of the learner. There are only a few systems in 
which c is excluded, and to the novice in shorthand I say, 
without attempting a pun, "You will often find yourself at sea 
if you do not stick to C." It is also very useful in showing 
plurals, e.g., brcs, braces, which without C could only be written 
though it were brace. I know several gentlemen who 
write Odell's system of shorthand, but have adopted a C, and 
thus made the most extensively -used, and perhaps the best, 
system more perfect. 

C becomes the first letter in words 114 times by omitting 
the vowels, as follows : a 76 times, e 15 times, i 3 time:?, 
o 20 times, and u never. 

PREFIXES. C forms ac, as in accident; oc, as in occur; co, 
as in co-action, co-operation, etc. 

TEKMIXATIOXS. It is also used for the terminations cy and 
sy, as in pleurisy and fallacy. The y's in both these cases are 
superfluous. Of course, like a prefix, it is better written sepa- 
rate from the next letter.

D is a second-class letter in point of numbers, being only 
superseded by C, S, and P. Unlike B (which it exceeds 350 
times), it frequently occurs in the middle of words, and is also 
an affix when used as ed; for example, tum-cd. Besides this, 
it is often separated by double vowels and diphthongs from 
another D, as deed, dead, died, or similarly separated from other 
consonants ; so that, perhaps, with the exception of G, no other 
letter gives so much 1 rouble to the reporter, or requires so 
much care in transcribing. These difficulties, however, are 
fortunately not increased by the use of D when it properly 
forms the initiative letter of words ; because there is no other 
pure consonant that, on such occasions, is so seldom followed 
by another. It is remarkable also that, owing to D not being 
a semi-vowel, it is 95 times in every 100 followed by a vowel, 



SHOETHAND DICTION ABY. 

and that chiefly by e, which is quite superfluous, owing to the 
impossibility of sounding D without this vowel being implied. 
By dropping the preceding vowel, D also becomes initiative 84 
times, viz., a 53 times, e 17 times, i 4 times, o 9 times, and u 
once. 

PUEFIX. Ad, as in addendum. Dis, as in disbelieve, is a 
common syllable; indeed, s follows d more than any other 
letter. 

AFFIX. Ed, as in dread-cd.

F 

F is the first semi-vowel in the alphabet, and is only a small 
letter. In Dr. Johnson's Dictionary there are less than one 
thousand words beginning with F. In sound it approximates 
to Y, and for this reason, in perhaps all systems of shorthand, 
the same character represents both letters. It has the same 
sound as pli, derived from the Greek <>, though it is rightly 
supposed that this has not always been the case. It is quite 
unnecessary, therefore, to write pli in shorthand, but rather, 
for the sake of expedition, use F. However, to make this 
Dictionary complete, I have in this instance, as well as in 
those of a similar nature throughout the work, placed words 
beginning with pli under P as well as F, and observed a, 
similar rule when these letters occur elsewhere. It is well, 
however, to recognize some distinction between. F and Y, either 
by writing the latter thicker than the former, or placing it 
under the line, which, practically, is the best plan of the two. 
For instance, if a rule of this sort is not observed, if and of 
read the same as have and heave, and vice versa. Again, even 
or heaven (on) read fain or fun, etc., etc. However, to meet all 
possible perplexities, I have grafted in all words beginning 
with Y when they are of the same formation as those in F. 
They are printed in italics. 

F becomes an initial letter of words 82 times by dropping 
the preceding vowel, viz. : a 34 times, e 27 times, i once, o 20 
times, and u never.

G. 

THERE is no letter which puzzles a learner of shorthand so 
much as G. It is not a letter of frequent occurrence, but it 
turns up at times so oddly, that, if it is not plainly written 
when it is required, no small perplexity will arise. It has 
drawn many a sigh from a reporter's heart. Sometimes it is 
silent, as in gnaw, gnarl, gnostic; if followed by h it takes 
the sound of/, as in laugh, enough; or of w, as in plough. 
But if t be added to gh, then we have eight, fight, light, sight, 
tight, right, etc.; and, what is still worse, if G is preceded by 
the vowel n, which reporters never write, then we have ought, 
f'Ui,jht, Boughi, tm'ght, etc., etc. It is common as an affix in 
ing, as doing; but then it is almost, if not entirely, silent. It 
is also somewhat similar in sound to J, and for that reason has 
to do duty for that consonant. It is not easy to the eye when 
written in many words, as eulogy, plague, and others of that 
class. It was once said by an experienced reporter, that if 
there was a word he could not read, there was when ho 
puzzled it out sure to be a G in it. 

G becomes the initial letter by the disuse of vowels in the 
following numbers : a 6'9 times, e 19, i 22, and o and u once 
each. 

PREFIX. Tg, which is always negative, as in ignoble. 

AFFIXES. Gy, as in ology (geology, theology, etc.), and ing.

H. 

MUCH is said about " poor letter H." It is, indeed, so often 
silent, that many persons ignore it altogether in speaking. It 
is never sounded after r, and is chiefly heard at the beginning 
of words. It is, however, common in all languages, and in 
shorthand writing it is well to retain it for the sake of the 
spelling. Unlike all other consonants, it is never preceded by 
a vowel, except such words as all ! alia ! ahead, oh ! It only 
rarely appears in the middle of words, and then it is prin- 
cipally as ch.

N. 

THERE is no letter in the shorthand alphabet which is so often 
preceded by a vowel as IS". This is owing to the negative 
prefixes in- and un-, which play such an important part in the 
English language. The omission of the vowel u makes N the 
first letter in words no less than 1800 times, and the observance 
of the same rule with respect to i, increases the number 
1600 ; so that the use of these negative prefixes increases the 
initial power of N no less than 3400 times ; and when to this 
are added 260 in the case of a, 400 in e, and 35 in o, we have a 
total of 4095. In the case of the negative prefixes, it is highly 
necessary that they should be written separately, thus n-rsd 
for unraised. It is an awful mistake to write or read a positive 
for a negative, and therefore negatives must be clearly written. 
In addition to this, by writing negative words in this form 
they are so well distinguished from others. For instance, 
n-rsd would not be read for nursed, for which these letters are 
also written. The negative prefix, though detached, should 
be placed sufficiently near the other part of the word to show 
that it forms a part of it, and it is all the better to place it 
half way up. Some stenographers do not adopt this plan, 
and there is all the more necessity for a dictionary of all words 
which can begin with N. The task of so arranging them has 
involved immense and complicated labour, but their com- 
pletion is all the more useful and satisfactory, not only for 
showing what can be formed by a set of consonants, but also 
that such letters represent nothing else.

P. 

P occurs, it is principally the first letter in words. For 
instance, in a page of a work entitled "The Bible not of 
Man," by Dr. Spring (read without selection), I found fifteen 
words beginning with P and five with P as a central letter ; 
but three of the latter had also P for the first letter. The 
reason of this is, P is followed chiefly by r, as in the common 
prefixes par, per, pro, and especially pre. Next to r, P is 
followed by Z, in point of numbers, either as a consecutive 

124. 



SHORTHAND DICTIONARY. 

letter, or by omitting the intervening vowel. This is un- 
doubtedly the reason why gentlemen who write Odell's or 
Taylor's improved systems use Pitman's pr and pi, which is 
formed by merely omitting to complete the small circle or 
eyelet in the beginning of P, and leaving it a pothook, having 
the hook to the left when pr, and to the right when pi. [The 
same plan can be used with respect to br and U, and tr and tl, 
with advantage, if desirable.] The power of P as an initial 
letter, is further increased by the omission of the preceding 
vowel a about 100 times, c 80, i 1, o 85, and u 35. 

Words beginning with PC will also be found classified as 
PK or Ps, according to their sound.

* Words like precious may look singular when classed under Pus, but it is 
unavoidable in ays ems not having c in the alphabet. Probably th^se centlernen 
who <io rot write c, yet, like others, use a grammalogue for o, and thus write 
prs~oux for precious, or write an enlarged a. For myself, I use Mr. Pitman's 
pr, in addition to a Kra'nmalogue for ous ; thug I should write pr-c-tiut for 
precious, only three characters.

R is a semi- vowel, which acts an important part in many words, 
and the omission to sound it by careless people, especially in 
the south of England, is a deplorable nuisance to a person 
writing after a speaker. To ignore the letter h is far more 
pardonable than v; and rapid speakers, whose gibberish is 
carried on by murdering r and t, often have to complain of 
being misunderstood if they see their remarks in print. It is 
best to stop writing when men do not speak the English 
language. E. is preceded by a 140 times, e 30, i 26, o 150, and 
20.

s. 

THERE are not so many -words in the English language begin- 
ning with S as C, but it is nevertheless the most frequently 
occurring consonant in all English composition. We seldom 
have double c, but often find double s, and in addition to this, 
s is used to form the plural number of nearly all nouns, and 
the indicative mood of verbs. Thus a book, the looks ; I love, 
-. For these reasons, as well as the fact that C is the 
most frequent initial letter, S ought not to be encumbered by 

155 



SHORTHAND DICTIONARY. 

doing duty for C. It is as easy to write a c as an s; and as 
what is written requires to be read afterwards, why should a 
writer lose time in puzzling out such letters as prs for precious 
(see PBS), rds for reduces, and other instances where c pre- 
cedes s ? In transcribing, much time must be lost in puzzling 
out such words, unless a couple of vowels are written, at the 
expense of losing as many words, or, what is still worse, the 
sense of a speaker's remarks. A good reporter is jealous of 
the slightest hindrance, and is always on the look out for any- 
thing which expedites his work. S is not often made the 
initial letter by the disuse of vowels, the instances being only 
a 120 times, e 60, i 20, o 35, and u 20. 

Under S will also be found all words beginning with a soft 
C, e.g., civil.

SHOKTHAND DICTIONARY. 



T. 

THIS is the twentieth letter in the English alphabet, but only 
the thirteenth or fourteenth in stenography. It is a pure con- 
sonant, but owing to being not often preceded by a vowel in 
the beginning of words, it is comparatively a small letter. T 
is preceded by a 45 times, e 8, i 10, o 6, and u 20. There is also 
a compound (out) often before words, c. g., ouf-spoken ; but it 
is advisable to use a grammalogue for out, and thus t will not 
stand alone in such words. The compound occurs nearly 100 
times.

X. 

X seldom occurs in the middle of words, and for this reason 
it is sometimes not found in shorthand alphabets, writers 
preferring to use ks on such occasions. It is almost entirely 
as an initiatory letter that x occurs, by dropping the preceding 
vowel e; for example, ex-plain. It then stands as a prefix, 
and, if represented by a hyphen, is easily written and read. 
It is well, however, not to join it with the next letter, but to 
place it rather high up, and in such a way as to readily show 
that it is a part of the word represented by the following 
letters. Mr. Pitman's system of phonography adopts this 
plan. It is also used in the same way by some shorthand 
writers, though tho sign is not a hyphen. A glance at Dr. 



Out should be represented by a grammalogue, and the best for this pur- 
pose is a small o. It is also useful in compound vrjrds, such as outbreak, etc.

BHOBTHAND DICTIONARY. 



Johnson's Dictionary will at once show the excellence of this 
arrangement. In Chambers' " Comprehensive Dictionary," 
which is, perhaps, the largest word-book published, there are 
about five hundred instances of ex as a prefix ; whilst under 
the letter x, as an initiatory character, there are not more than 
forty, and these, which have the sound of z, are names, not 
words.

Y. 

Y is the last letter in stenography, as Z is superfluous, and 
well expressed by S. As a final letter, it is not written when 
preceded by t and c (providing c is one of the characters of the 
alphabet of the system in use), because t sounds like ty, thus 
pln-t for plenty, and^rw-c for privacy. But ry, as in memory, 
requires a final y ; also ly, which is very common.
