It answers a felt human want as well as a commercial demand. After an exhaustive investigation the author finds that this is the first book of its character ever offered to shorthand students, teachers, business colleges, civil service schools, educational institutions, stenographers, and court reporters. This work is not constructed to cover cultural studies, but confines itself strictly to commercial and professional pursuits, and to City, County, State, and Federal stenographic examinations.

The purpose of the compilation is to furnish workable and dependable vocabularies for the use of stenographers. The publication covers about 190 different types of business. The text contains approximately 90,000 words. From a large proportion of these, by the use of prefixes, suffixes, and other abbreviating devices of shorthand, many derivatives may beformed, thus increasing the vocabulary material here offered to at least 275,000 words.The common or standard dictation books to be found in bookstores and business colleges do not furnish the student or stenographer adequate technical vocabulary material in any singleline of business.

The limitations of such books are self-evident,and their nomenclatures are surprisingly meager. For instance,take one of the most popular dictation books on the market whichis published in 15 different systems of shorthand. The manualin question attempts to cover 26 different types of business- butunavoidably these are covered in a very superficial way only,in so far as furnishing actual working knowledge of words tostudents and stenographers is concerned.

Let us cite, for concrete example, two large and important types of business as out-lined in it, the hardware and the railroad businesses. For vocabulary in the former the compilers have selected from the files of some hardware corporation 22 letters that purport to give this specific vocabulary to the stenographer.

An actual count of the words applicable to the hardware business shows 142, whereas correspondence the dictation studies examined give 26 letters taken at random from the files of some railroad companys office. Its vocabulary is only 262 words, while the vocabulary here offered provides 5,400. This same criticism applies to all types of business that such dictation books have attempted to cover.
