This unit lets you learn some different vowel combinations. You won't see a lot of examples, as they aren't used a lot. Study them carefully though.
Note: 'Snowy', which has the mark to distinguish it from the dipthon 'oi'. Same with 'radio'. And 'showy'. If, like me, you choose not to use these marks, you will probably guess the shorthand outline from the sentence itself.
Omission of Minor Vowels If you ever can't remember if you omit a minor vowel or use the diphthong, write what works for you. These words in paragraph 121, however, are comon words that you will use often, so they would be easy to remember. Again, when taking dictation, write what comes naturally to you.
Breif Form "pound". For American's and others who don't use this as a money word, this is what "write 'p' after numerals" means. So for 5 pounds, it would be '5p'. This is the same as dollar. You just write 'dollar' when not refering to a certain amount, but '5d' when refering to '5 dollars'.
These are here so you can copy and paste into a document to print out. This way you don't have to keep writing the longhand version. If you want.
