Teeline Shorthand | An Introduction to Teeline Shorthand: Welcome you to the first Teeline lesson. Shorthand systems have been with us for hundreds of years. They keep evolving and changing and even people like Charles Dickens use a system of shorthand when you worked as a court reporter. The system that we use is the most recent one and it's called Teeline shorthand. It's nice to learn and simple because it's based on the alphabet and it was invented by a gentleman called James Hill.

To begin with we're going to start improving the way that your text. To help us do this we're going to show some small sentences and just see if you can read them first.
  • I shl go hm at fv
  • Hv we any bks abt Tln
  • Ths bx cntnd chclts
  • Ths is qt smpl to rd n rt


So you read the sentences and now we shall see what you've done so far you've taken out the vowel in the middle of the word we've taken out the vowel at the end of the words if it isn't sounded.

  • I shall go home at five
  • Have we any books about Teeline
  • This box contained chocolates
  • This is quite simple to read and write


We've also taken out any unsounded letter for example the last word right and we've also retained a vowel at the start of a word because it's needed to be able to read it and a good example of this one would be about u (you).

Teeline shorthand outlines

This is the alphabet we're going to look at and as you can see there's just a sample of the letters here and I'm going to show you where the Teeline alphabet comes from based on the letters you already know so we've got the capital ‘A’.

Our Teeline ‘A’ is just based on the top part and there we have a Teeline A.

In E, we're going to look at that corner and use that for an E.

In the ‘T’ we're going to look at the straight part and we're going to use a straight line and keep it in that position so it's at the top.

Now sometimes we look at the lowercase letters if it helps us so we've got the capital ‘L’ lowercase ‘l’ and the Teeline is the same as the lowercase ‘l’.

In M, there's capital ‘M’, lowercase ‘m’ and the Teeline ‘m’. We just look at that top part of the ‘M’ and there's your Teeline ‘m’.

‘X’ is exactly the same.

‘Y’ is virtually the same but we need to save time because that's the whole idea of shorthand so we're taking off the clearly bit at the end and there's your Teeline ‘y’.

‘W’ is very similar to the M. Talking of the lowercase ‘w’ and we're going to streamline it by just taking the bottom part and that should ‘w’.

‘O’ is the same not very big.

Here we've got capital ‘P’ lowercase ‘p’ and our Teeline P straight through the line because we're taking off this bit.

The other thing to remember with Teeline if a letter cuts the line so does the Teeline. So, the piece through the line.
Similarly Capital ‘J’ lowercase ‘j’ Teeline J, we haven't got time to put the dot on it and we streamlined the stroke.

In ‘K’  a kicking K as they used to call it and that part of the K becomes the K.

Capital ‘N’ and lowercase ‘n’ is similar to the M and the W. we've gone to a lower case and we're going to streamline it still further, we're only taking the end of the ‘n’ and we're taking this curl a bit off the end of it.

‘H’ lowercase ‘h’ sits on the line. we need to save time so we'll tape that bit off and just keep with that straight back of the ‘h’ which is the same as the capital T.

In ‘S’ and the cursive ‘s’ and it's got that nice little circle at the top. So all we're going to do for an S is as below:

Next, you'll get a list of the whole alphabet.
