5,000 Most Used Words

With the link Irons in the Fire posted,
maybe I can make my own 5,000 most used word list.  They would be more recent than the Simplified book.  Just one question, though: does the Simplified most used words book also include phrases?

  1. Yes.  As the title "Most-Used Shorthand Words and Phrases" implies (printed in 1949), it includes phrases.  The book is organized by lessons and paragraphs of the first edition of the Simplified manual.  While the paragraph numbers may be different from the second edition of the manual, the correspondence with the lessons is largely maintained.  It is a very useful book.  The shorthand was written by Charles Zoubek.
