Quick brown cow

Am wondering if there is a sentence (or two) that is documented anywhere that captures all–or most–of the character variations and combinations in Gregg (any version).

For example: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog contains every letter of the English alphabet.

Having such a tool would put the rules into practice in a way that is memorable.

It has to have been done. If only as a puzzle for someone who wrote Gregg and liked puzzles. Whether anyone still knows about it is another matter…

  1. Considering all the various ways that Gregg letter-forms can be connected together, it might take more than it would at first seem.  It would be an interesting exercise, however.

  2. Maybe phonetic pangrams  (more info) are a good place to start:

    “The beige hue on the waters of the loch impressed all, including the French queen, before she heard that symphony again, just as young Arthur wanted.” (source)

    has got quite a lot of the pre-anniversary principles and forms in it (including some of the rarer ones, like "loch"). It's got reversing principle, the "-ing the" principle, etc.

    1. I knew the sample sentence I cited was called a pangram but did not know a phonetic pangrams existed.

      I guess what I’m looking for, then, is a  pangram that demonstrates not only all the phoenetics  but also as many of the joinings and brief forms as possible. Might be able to do all that in a couple paragraphs.

      By the way: found an old post that discusses the same idea https://gregg-shorthand.com/2015/01/11/shorthand-pangra/
