Hi, I am just starting out with the Anniversary edition. I have the Anniversary dictionary and the textbook. I have not been able to find the script for "calculus". Using the stem of "calculate" does not work, I don't think, because adding 's' to "calculate" gives you "calculates" not "calculus". How do I resolve this?
I keep looking thinking there must be some book that had that in there. On the internet archive site they are free. But I can't find it.
My thoughts are the same
*spell out entirely, or as much as needed to transcribe or read back easily *abbreviate if you use it often enough and will know from your own notes (I kept a "key" on the back of my steno pad for a computer meeting I took minutes in).
Maybe someone else might have an idea.
"Gregg Shorthand had achieved the most extraordinary success ever attained by any system in the history of shorthand." John Robert Gregg, 1922
Thanks Debbi for your response. I gather from your answer that there is actually a lot of improvisation in Gregg Shorthand. Of course that would be necessary because a system developed in 1929, for instance, is not going to contain words that first appeared in the 1970s.
I'm a math professor who writes DJ, and I use shorthand for some of my notes. I've typically written "calculus" letter for letter: k-a-l-k-u-l-u-s. But I now think it would work to write k-a-l-k-l-u-s, making the middle of the word a big wave. This keeps it in line with words like "nebulous" and "oracular".
