Writing Gregg Shorthand with METAFONT and LATEX
Shorthand is defined [2] as a method of writing derived from the spelling system and the script of a particular language. In order to approximate the speed of speech: • The graphic redundancy of written characters and ligatures derived from longhand letters is reduced. • Silent letters are ignored, and complex orthographic rules are simplified. The spelling only serves as a reference system of what is largely phonetic writing. • Abbreviations are utilized. Gregg shorthand was first published in 1888. In the following three sections we want to show how its inventor J. R. Gregg has applied the above general principles in the creation of his shorthand system and how the current system version, the centennial edition [7], can be implemented in METAFONT [5].
