Primary Phonography free pdf Excerpt from Primary Phonography: An Introduction to Isaac Pitman's System of Phonetic Shorthand- With a Series of Original Exercises in the Simple Characters of the Phonographic Alphabet, Without Contraction When Tiro, Cicero's freedman, invented the first known method of shorthand reporting, his one idea was to find n way of taking down speeches verbatim and in the shortest possible time. And this has been the aim of the many shorthand inventors who have flourished since his day. But for a long time, the systems of Tiro and his successors were doomed to failure. Founded, as they were, wholly or in part, upon the imperfect longhand alphabets, they were almost as lengthy and cumbersome as the longhand whose place they were intended to take. In 1837, Mr. Isaac Pitman, of Bath, England, gave to the world what we may call a natural system. It had for its alphabet signs representing the sounds of the human voice- and "sound writing," or "phonography," by reason of its briefness, simplicity, and the natural arrangement of its characters, at once came into use. Since that time others have modified this phonetic shorthand of Mr. Pitman's- and he himself has made improvements in his system, which have caused it to be preferred to all other systems, both in England and America. Among other things, he has compiled a shorthand dictionary, containing some twenty-six thousand words, of great convenience as an authority. But Isaac Pitman builded better than he knew.
