Question meriting some thought….

Hey. I’ve wondered, if you learn one system, can you read snippets of other systems? I’ve taken up Pre-Anniversary (you could say I took people’s word for it as a challenge, per se) and since it’s the system with the greatest memory load (hey, I’ve learned pi to a hundred digits) and thus the greatest amount of signs for words, is it possible to read other systems, filling in the blanks on the way. For those of you confoosded [sic, haha] by big words, this is what I mean: Learn Preanniversary. Come across snippet of shorthand dated 1970. Possible to read?
Thanx,
15-yr-old l33t
(I’m flattered by people’s comments about me being 15 years old and learning shorthand by the way…)

  1. Sheesh. I gotta stop reposting.   I'm also a visually-perfectionistic (artistic) kind of guy, and for some reason, I like pre-anny's artistic form. And also, my girlfriend's an artist and wannabe jeweller (d'I spell that right?) PLUS she wants me to get more involved with her work. That's why I took pre-anny. For those who are wondering.   (Chances of people reading this message: 349 934 029:1. Chances of you getting any benefit out of this message: Not a flippin' prayer)   L33t1fy

    How does learning pre-anny help your girlfriend? I'm totally confused
    on that point and my ADD is acting up screaming at me that it doesn't
    make sense.

  3. Sure, in your case you should be able to read any series of Gregg Shorthand without difficulty. The latter series are simplifications of the older ones — so if you learn one of the modern versions, reading stuff written in earlier series may present a challenge.
