Introduction
1. Alegomorphics
Mutual relation

2 2

Off now is fled the veil of mystery!
Put now together the two means of diffusion
namely abbreviation and indication of equivalence
— short-hand and synonymous terms enlarged.

3
Means of indication of
relations, indication of
equivalences

By what means, is the relation of an unknown to one
correspondent known quantity indicated and brought to view?
Answer. By means of the indication of the equivalence which
has place between that same unknown quantity and that same
known quantity.

6
Means of indicating
equivalences aptly
and consistently,
abbreviation: or say
compression or condensation.

By what means is has the equivalence which, as above, has
place between those same two quantities made indicated? by or say
What are the operations by the means of which that same indication has been
stiled abbreviation a series is shewn, it has been seen it will be seen been performed
— a series is shewn setting out from the stock of known
quantities which have place in the Numeration Table, and presenting
names of quantities denominations the names of quantities less and less known
the further they recede from it and by advance above it: and
(exceptions excepted) at and by each step in the gradation, the matter is raised to an additional
degree in the scale of abbreviation: or say an additional degree
of compression or say condensation is effected.

7
Short hand writing is
abbreviation, compression
condensation without
regular chain of relation
between the elements: another

Synonyms Synonymous terms brought within the compass of the mind
by a species of short-hand: and by this means, quantities
that are unknown made known. This is what Arithmetic
Algebra with their et cæteras are composed of. Here
we have may be seen — here we have — one half of the
whole — mathematics — unmixt mathematics. This is
No exaggeration here: nothing but what is true: Synonyms
expressed by short-hand! what can be more familiar?
What can be less repulsive. The Iliad in a nutshell.
So says an antient proverb. Here in less than a nutshell
may be seen more than an Iliad.

8.
Of short hand, the application
covers the whole of
the language: arithmetic
algebra, more than
what concerns quantity

11 May 1831. Abbreviation of space has for its use
abbreviation of time. See B Table. Some uses of the Square
roots. Sometimes time is shortened by keeping the number of
equivalents by encreasing it or encreasing the quantity of
each — in instructive language: in performance and practice in the abbreviated language
Analogy between alegomorphic
abbreviation and short hand
