Unit 8

Method of Expressing R

     71.  The circle is written with left motion to express r following the vowel:

     1. Before and after straight strokes:

art, mar, arch, share

     2. Between straight strokes in the same direction:

tart, dared, church, murmur

     72.  It is generally more facile to use the circle for the obscure vowel sound heard in ur as in church, murmur, urge, hurt.

73.  Frequent-Word Drill

heart, urge, better, etc.

S Following a Left-Motion Circle

     74.  The letter s is added to a final left-motion circle on straight strokes by changing the circle to a loop:

plurals of final reversed circles

75.  Brief Forms for Common Words

Brief forms

     76.  After abbreviated words and words ending in a left-motion circle on straight strokes, a disjoined r expresses er, or, thus:

keeper, dearer, worker

     When the forms are distinctive, the r is joined, thus:

greater, bigger, smaller

     When a brief form ends with the last consonant of a word, the left motion circle is used to express or and er after straight strokes:

sooner, former
