Definition of Gregg in the dictionary. Meaning of Gregg. What does Gregg mean? Information and translations of Gregg in the most comprehensive dictionary definitions resource on the web. The Gregg Reference Manual, 11/e, by Sabin is intended for anyone who writes, edits, or prepares material for distribution or publication. For nearly fifty years, this manual has been recognized as the best style manual for business professionals and for students who want to master the on-the-job standards of business professionals. Abbreviations are shortened forms of words or lengthy phrases and are very useful in written communication. As you will see in the following list of commonly used abbreviations they exist in all areas of life.

Unit 1

1. Shorthand is written by sound; thus aim is written am (long sound of a), cat is written kat, knee is written ne. Since we are learning shorthand to save time in writing, it is necessary to ignore those letters that aren't pronounced.


2. The consonants are arranged in pairs, according to their similarity of sound, and are distinguished by a difference in length. For instance, k and g are both produced in the same place in the mouth and likewise resemble each other in shorthand.
The characters for the consonants in this lesson are derived from this elliptical figure:

3. All these consonants are written forward from left to right; th and t and d are struck upwards from the line of writing. The g given in this lesson is called gay, being the hard sound as in game, get, and not the soft sound heard in gem, magic. The aspirate h is indicated by a dot placed over the vowel.
Many frequently recurring words are represented by simple alphabetic characters. These abbreviations are called brief forms. Some of these signs represent two and even three words; for example, the sign for r represents are, our, hour. A dot on the line of writing represents the articles a, an. A dot at the end of a word expresses -ing. The pronoun I is expressed by a large circle (written counterclockwise); he, by a small circle.
The student should practice all these characters until he or she can write them without the slightest hesitation. Let us examine more closely the curve letters k, g, r, and l.

Each of these strokes begins and ends on the same plane. The beginning and the end of k and g rest on the line of writing. R and l rest on the line of writing as a saucer would rest on a table.
The deep part of the curve in k and in g is at the end; in r and l, at the beginning, as indicated by arrows.
K and r are the same size. The same is true of g and l.
Correctly written, r and l look like k and g when the paper is turned upside down.
The sounds represented by lines are n, m, t, and d:

Even though d is about twice the length of t, d should only go up about two thirds of the line of writing.

4. Phrasing. The joining of simple words is a great help to accuracy and speed in writing shorthand, and its acquirement should not be deferred until the habit of writing common words separately has been formed.

5. Punctuation, etc. In shorthand the following marks are used:

6. Sentence Drill

7. In shorthand there are twelve distinct vowel sounds, which are arranged in four groups, and three closely related sounds are placed in each group. In this lesson we have the first two groups, which for convenience are named the A group and the E group.

Memory aid:

The A Group

The E Group

Note: The first sound in the E group of vowels is the short i, heard in din, and should not be confused with long i, heard in dine, which will be given later.

8. Marking Vowels. The vowels are grouped according to similarity in sound. The large circle expresses three sounds of a. The short sound is unmarked, the medium sound is marked with a dot, and the long sound with a short dash, as shown in paragraph 7. This system of marking is used in all vowel groups uniformly.
The dot and dash are occasionally needed to indicate the exact sounds in unfamiliar or isolated words, but otherwise they are seldom used.

Picturing Writing Motion

9. Frequently we shall have to refer to writing motion. The curved characters in this lesson are taken from horizontal ovals, one written with right motion, the other with left. The right motion is clockwise; the left, counterclockwise.

10. Characters taken from the left-motion oval are called left-motion, because the rotation is from left to right; characters taken from the right-motion oval are called right-motion for a like reason; thus:


The terms 'left motion' and 'right motion' refer to the rotation in movement, and not to the direction.

The following movement drills are intended to develop skill in the joining of circles.

11. Circles Joined to Single Strokes. At the beginning or end of a single curve, the circle is placed inside the curve. Let us examine more closely how to join a circle to a curve, using a-k, a-g, r-a, and l-a.

The dotted line shows the position of the circle in relation to the curve. (Remember, the dotted line in r-a and l-a does not represent the line of writing. The base of the r and of the l rests on the line of writing.)
The circle joins at a right angle, shown by the arrows above.

Practice with the following sentences:

Key: He lay there in the air. I cannot go. I will not go. Ray is ill. He cannot hear Lee.

12. At the beginning or end of a single straight stroke, the circle is written with right motion. Observe closely the joinings a-d, d-a, a-m, and m-a.

In joining the circle to a straight line, start and finish as shown by the dotted lines. Keep straight lines absolutely straight.

Practice with the following sentences:


Key: I am aiming at him. I hit him in the knee. Eddy is aiming at me. He hit me in the head.

Warning: There are spoilers for the end of Bridgerton season 1 ahead.

Did you know that shows without caped crusaders, smoke monsters, Daleks, or dragons could have Easter Eggs?

Well, there’s a hidden character in Bridgerton season 1 that’s got everyone buzzing, if you’ll excuse the unavoidable pun. We’re talking about the bee at the end of Bridgerton that also appears throughout the first season of Shondaland’s dishy new Netflix series. Turns out the bee is actually a clue from Julia Quinn’s books about what’s going to happen if and when Bridgerton returns for season 2.

Even if the bees weren’t teasing what’s to come, they’re the perfect imagery for Bridgerton. Bees evoke a matriarchal hive, like the Bridgerton family in its current state, as well as the idea of Queen Bees a la Gossip Girl, pop icon Beyoncé and, err, pollinating. It’s also, possibly, a blunt reference to the fact that “Bridgerton” begins with the letter “B.” Lord Edmund and Lady Violet Bridgerton (Ruth Gemmell) named their eight children in alphabetical order (Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory, Hyacinth) so you know they care about initials.

If you haven’t read Quinn’s Bridgerton family novels, it also sort of seems like the bee represents gossip, a.k.a. “buzz” in the Ton courtesy of Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) on Bridgerton. But keen book readers know that the bee in Bridgerton goes even deeper than that.

It’s a reference to the Bridgerton pater familias

It’s well-established in Bridgerton season 1 that Lord and Lady Bridgerton had a famous “love match” that none of the kids feel like they can live up to in their own romantic pairings. But with that comes an added sadness, because Edmund Bridgerton died before the series starts. While not much is said about when and how he passed on the Netflix series, book readers know that he suffered a fatal allergic reaction to a bee sting.

“Edmund Bridgerton was young,” Quinn writes in the series’ second book The Viscount Who Loved Me, from the perspective of Edmund’s eldest son Anthony, “he was strong, he was tall, his shoulders were broad, his muscles were powerful, and by God no honeybee could have felled him.” Yet one did. Maybe the bee is supposed to represent Edmund, morbidly, watching over them in death.

It’s foreshadowing Bridgerton season 2

You might notice that two of the Bridgerton siblings, Eloise (Claudia Jessie) and Benedict (Luke Thompson), incorporate bees into their wardrobe. It’s very meta of them. They’re owning their tragedy, and who is surprised? Those two are the most chill out of the titular family.

Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), on the other hand, is terrified of bees. The second book in the series is told partly from his perspective and opens with the aforementioned flashback to his father’s death by bee sting. Besides Anthony’s relationship with Kate and Edwina Sheffield, two new sisters on the Marriage Market who have yet to be cast in the Netflix series, The Viscount Who Loved Me digs into Anthony’s daddy issues which are largely tied to… you guessed it… bees. So, many fans see the bee at the end of season 1 as a cheeky confirmation that season 2 will adapt The Viscount Who Loved Me.

Finally, there is a particularly sexy (and odd) scene involving a bee in The Viscount Who Loved Me that some fans have teased on Twitter — but we won’t spoil it for you. But if you loved how chaotic Anthony Bridgerton was in season 1 and can’t wait to see how his promise to “remove love” from the process of finding a wife plays out… you’re in luck. The Viscount’s story is just getting started.
