There are 3 main types but from my research this looks to be American Gregg Shorthand A O aths H emamage 7 C I E o F tubercalasis As you can see there are set symbols for every letter Let's break one of the words down atrophied O o P atrophied Using the Gregg Alphabet as reference we can see most of the letters in atrophied are present But why no o vowel and why is ph written as f? Simple In shorthand you cut out all vowels in a word when writing it down with the exception of words that BEGIN or END with a vowel hence the a at the start being present or like in the I in atrophied to make it more readable when the sound could be harder to distinguish if it isn't written In atrophied if the the i isn't written it could be hard to tell if the writer meant a fud fad fod or fid sound for example Also since Shorthand is a phonetic writing system you are encouraged to write down the phonetic sounds of words rather than the actual letter blends in this case write an f instead of a ph So in actuality these aren't just meaningless scribbles -it's Gregg Shorthand a writing system developed to take down notes more quickly than when written out in full which is very useful in a medical or journalistic environment Some people can even write over 100 words in a minute! And it's been in use since John Robert Gregg invented it in 1888! Wow! So old! Isn't language amazing ? r4cs0 darkvioletcloud I'm gonna go back in time and kill John Robert Gregg 1 N Meme
