About this title


Pitman shorthand instructor and key is a language and linguistics book written by isaac pitman.pitman shorthand instructor and key is a book about a system of shorthand invented by isaac pitman in 1837. This is the art of demonstrating spoken sounds by characters. Pitman's shorthand has been designed in a way such that no other language has been subjected to as many tests as this of the characteristic features of pitman shorthand is unvoiced and voiced pairs of sounds, such as /p/ and /b/ or /t/ and /d/. These are represented by strokes which only differ in breadth. The thick stroke represents heavy sounds such as /b/ and /d/. The thin stroke represents light sounds such as /p/ and /t/. In trying to do this, readers will require a specific writing instrument which can be responsive to the user's drawing pressure. They can either use specialist-fountain pens or pencils.the book makes use of several chapters such as consonants, vowels and how to interpret them. The book also uses alternative signs for r and h, diphthongs, phraseography, circles, strokes, large circles, loops, initial hooks, the shun hook, compound consonants, the halving principle, the doubling principle, medial semicircle and negative words amongst many others.this shorthand, since its conception, has effectively been adapted to the realistic requirements for all classes of shorthand writers. Pitman shorthand instructor and key by isaac pitman was published by pearson education in 2004. This is the first edition book that is available in paperback.key features: newer versions of this system of shorthand removed certain symbols and introduced other simplifications.
