At one point when I was reading through the archives, I could swear I ran across a post mentioning the results of some study/research, which laid out how much different pieces of the shorthand puzzle contributed to the overall speed.
I’m not talking about the usual ‘building speed tips’ posts; what I am remembering is something along the lines of phrasing contributed x percent, then brief forms, then the alternate symbols/alphabet gave another Y percent, etc. etc. with diminishing returns showing up as you go down the list.
And now I can’t find the bookmark, can’t find the post. I’m beginning to wonder if I just dreamed it or something.
Ring any bells for anybody? Even if such a post turns out to be nonexistent, I would be interested to see if such a *study* exists (as opposed to the ‘everybody’ knows opinions, which aren’t hard to find at all 🙂 ).
My (possible imagined) memory of this indicates it was about Gregg, but can’t be sure until I see it again.
