The new words

I’m considering doing a video on how to write newly arrived words in Gregg Shorthand. Words like “e-mail” and “internet” that entered our vocabularies after most of the available shorthand dictionaries were written. What modern words do you encounter that might be good to include?

    1. If I had to do it on the fly . . .

      jihad: J-A-D with an H-dot over the A.

      Wahhabism: U-O-B-rightS-M with an H-dot over the O.

      I'll let others judge whether it's strictly according to rule, but I'm sure both would be easily transcribed and so would pass Dr. Gregg's test anyway. 🙂
