Here is an example from the Anniversary Functional Method p204 (imagine the numbers in parenthesis look like footnotes):
Ray had a meal late in the day. Will Mary eat a meal in the train? Mary would take tea. Ray will claim Mary will(1) not eat a meal in the train. Her headache will delay her. A man will heat the tea. He will not heat the meat in the(2) metal kettle.:
The Anniversary Functional Method has the following remark at the beginning of the key p203: "(Counted in groups of 20 standard words)" So are these numbers marking groups of 20 standard words? How are they used?
Thinking I had this figured out I counted the words before (1) and counted 25 words. There are 26 words between (1) and (2). Hmm. What is a standard word? Is there some way of consistently counting these words to get 20 words between each superscript?
Can anybody answer these questions?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I am loving shorthand. I just received a shipment of four Anniversary books. It was like a second Christmas!
