Tersive Shorthand     Tersive Shorthand

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.
