The medical stenographer who uses Gregg shorthand will find this manual of great aid in the simplification of outlines for medical terms. Shortened forms for commonly occurring medical words, prefixes, suffixes and common phrases and word combinations with ample practice material are included. The introduction includes a list of Greek and Latin prefixes and suffixes with definitions, and various other practical hints for the beginner whose chief difficulty is lack of medical vocabulary. Emphasis is placed on the value of a knowledge of etymology, which, as any experienced reporter will confirm, is half the battle in devising outlines for unfamiliar terms in any branch of science and in any system of shorthand.
