Message from Valerie Sutton...

Shorthand is not the same as Handwriting...Handwriting is more formal in comparison...Shorthand is more personal...When writing Shorthand, I assume knowledge of the signs...for example in the middle sign...I didn't need to write both hands since the Grasp Symbol informed me of two hands and I assumed they were the same handshape unless otherwise stated...In Shorhand the rootshape (the square for the fist, or the circle for the open fist) is not important because you are assuming knowledge of the language, but when you re-write your notes in SignWriting Printing then you use the proper official symbols....Val ;-)
