Gregg in Hebrew

Look what I managed to get hold of! Very out-of-print, Gregg Hebrew was compiled by Chaim Bar-Kama (who was running classes in it even before the State of Israel was founded in 1948) in two editions dated 1952 and 1971. It’s based on Simplified and goes from left-to-right just like English Gregg.

Luathscríbhinn Gregg

Last night, I got a new book from Dublin, the Irish adaptation of Gregg Shorthand, which in their language is called “Luathscríbhinn Gregg” (said like “loo-uh-skree-vin Gregg,” I believe). I put it on the angelfishy site: http://gregg.angelfishy.net/irishgregg.pdf The whole book is in Irish except for the foreword, which is in both Irish and English. Now that…

Chinese Gregg

Hi All, I posted on the open stenotype blog about Chinese shorthand and figured I’d also put up the relevant content here. Could someone get a copy of the Yawei Shorthand theory text I link to below (or one like it found somewhere else etc) and host it on this blog? Cheers Steven — Interestingly,…

Spanish Business Letters

The following business letters appeared in the October 1939 issue of El Taquígrafo Gregg, the Spanish version of The Gregg Writer, written in the 1923 edition of the system. The language in the letters is somewhat antiquated: they are not the easiest letters to transcribe either, so if someone wants to attempt a transcription, post…

French Gregg

I just found a sweet little volume, “Sténographie Gregg”,  1924, by Ernest W. Farmer M.D. (!), published by Gregg but printed in Norwood, Massachusetts.  It came with the “Clef de la Sténographie Gregg”, a single sheet of “errata”, and a form from Marywood College in Scranton, PA listing those who were absent on April 20,…

Stenographie Gregg Blog!

Hi everyone, I’ve created a blog with texts written in French Gregg (with the keys). Check it out here: (stenographiegregg.wordpress.com). As you can probably see by the questionable penmanship, it’s certainly a work in progress and probably not very useful to anyone right now, but I’m using the blog to personally track my progress. One…
