Gregg Dictation Functional Method Diamond Jubilee Series Author:Louis A. Leslie, Charles E. Zoubek GREGG SHORTHAND, THE UNIVERSAL SYSTEM — To most people, the terms "shorthand" and "Gregg" are synonymous. Since its publication in 1888, Gregg Shorthand has been learned and used by millions of people not only in the English language but in many foreign languages as well.

The fact that this alphabet, virtually without change, has been the basis of Gregg Shorthand for three-quarters of a century is indeed a tribute to the genius of its inventor, John Robert Gregg.
The Functional Method of teaching Gregg Shorthand has for many years been used with great success by thousands of teachers of the system. The Functional Method type of presentation, fundamentally a language-art type of teaching, allows much scope for the ingenuity of the individual teacher within the framework of language-art teaching. It is distinguished, in general, by the use of a reading approach of approximately 20 class periods, by the provision of a printed key to the shorthand plates, and by the absence of verbalizations of rules or principles.

2. To provide for transcription readiness by increased emphasis on vocabulary development, spelling, punctuation, and application of correct principles of grammar--all concurrently with the teaching of shorthand.« less
