Tersive Shorthand is a cursive shorthand system for American English
developed by Troy Heninger. It is cursive in that letters are connected together into
words, and words are separated by a small space. Troy developed
Tersive Shorthand after trying Gregg and Pitman shorthand and finding
them unsatisfactory. He actually created a number of different
shorthand systems and after years of tinkering with them, Tersive
was the result.
