TOPIC TABULATION EXERCISES ON SIMPLE COLUMN WORK WITH AT
MOST THREE COLUMNS
Tabulation involves arranging items in columns. In a tabular arrangement therefore,
Items stand out below each other, vertically, and on the same line as another in the next
column, if horizontally.
A tabular work has the following features:-
1 Top and bottom margins are equal, if vertical display.
2 Left and right margins are equal, if a horizontal display.
3 Equal spaces between the columns, usually odd number spaces such as 3, 5 or 7
4Left and right margins, being equal, the table is centred over the page
1 The effectiveness of any display work, particularly, in tabulation, depends on correct
2 Ensure correct with of your paper on the typewriter
3 Pica and elite typewriters have six standard spaces to a vertical 1 inch (25 mm).
4 Horizontal spacing: Pica 10 characters (horizontal spaces = 1 inch). Elite 12 characters (horizontal spaces = 1 inch).

TOPIC: REVEW OF THE VOWEL SOUNDS/SHORT FORMS AND PHRASES AND CIRCLE S/Z AND DOTING
In shorthand the sound of the first vowel in a word determines where and how a word
is written. There are 12 vowels in Pitman Shorthand and in English Language. In shorthand these vowels are grouped as follows:-
FIRST PLACE VOWELS
These are four in number and are written in the first place, that is, at the beginning of a stroke. When the first vowel in a word is a first place vowel, the outline is written in the first position, ie thebfirst downstroke or upstroke in the outline is written above the line. Examples
1 Long ah is represented by a heavy dot as in
Pa, Ma, Calm, Palm, etc
2 Short a is represented by a light dot as in
at, add, path, pal, pack, etc
3 Long aw is represented by a heavy dash eg
saw, paw, pawpaw, ball, bought, talk, etc.
4 Short o is represented by a light dash eg
top, odd, doll, dog, job, etc.
SECOND PLACE VOWELS
These are represented by two heavy vowels 0 and a as in
1 toe, oat, oath, boat, both, etc. these are represented by heavy dashes placed
at the middle of the outlines and
2 pay, may, say, bay, etc these are represented by heavy dots at the middle of
the outline and
Two light vowels o and a as in
3 cup, us, up, touch, Dutch, etc represented by light dashes at the middle of the
4 get, engage, enough, etc. represented by light dots at the middle of the outlines
THIRD PLACE VOWELS
These are four in number two for long vowels e and oo as in
1 fee, feed, deep, keep, teach, theme, etc represented with heavy dots at the
end of the outlines, and as in
2chew, shoe, food, move, youth, etc. represented by heavy dashes at the end
of the outlines.
Two short i and oo as in
3 bit, pick, big, ship, etc represented with light dots at the end of the outlines
4 book, look, took, wood, etc. represented with light dashes at the end of the
These are frequently occurring words in English Language, hence short forms are designed for them for high speed writing.
They include- be, it, do, which, the, to, two or too, for, a or an, of, on, had, different or difference, put, wish, etc
Are the act of joining two or more shorthand outlines together where possible to enhance speed writing. Examples are
To be, to the, to do, to pay, pay the, can you, with you, they will, they will be,
CIRCLE S/Z AND DOTING
For convenience, some words ending with ing or S/Z end with dots in place of the ing eg
Space, but spacing, set, but setting, sit, but sitting, seek, but seeking, etc

TOPIC: – TYPES OF DISPLAY HEADINGS VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL
Whether a typewriter has pica or elite typeface it should produce six standard line spaces to a vertical inch (25 mm). Six clear single line spaces make one vertical inch (25 mm), eg
Vertical spacing entails returning the carriage with the line space regulator at 1 from the top edge of the typing paper to the bottom edge of the paper.
When matter is vertically displayed, the top and bottom margins must be equal. T centre items, vertically, for example on A5 portrait paper, procrrd as follows:-
1 Insert A5 portrait in the typewriter with the left edge aon 0.
2 Clear all the tab stops.
3 Move the margin stops to the extreme left and right of the carriage.
4 Set the line space regulator at 1.
5 Adjust the typing paper on the roller.
6 Recall the number of vertical line spaces on A5 portrait.
7 Count the number of lines on the material to be typed.
8 Subtract the number of lines on the material from the number of line spaces on A5
9 Divide the remainder by 2, and add one space.
10 From the top edge of your typing paper, return the carriage the number of single line
spaces arrived at in Step 9 and type the first line,etc.
In horizontal spacing, 1 inch (25 mm) on elite typewriter contains 12 characters (12 horizontal spaces) while on pica typewriter, 1 inch (25 mm) contains 10 characters (10 horizontal spaces).
To centre a matter horizontally, the left and right margins must be equal. Proceed as follows:
1 Clear all tabs
2 Move the margin stops to the extreme left and right of the carriage
3 Set the line space regulator to 1.
4 Insert A5 landscape paper, for example, with the left edge on 0.
5 Adjust the paper evenly on the roller
6 Read the scale point on the right edge of the paper, pica is 82, elite is 100.
7 With a pencil, mark in pairs the characters, cluding spaces and punctuation marks, on
each of the horizontal lines you wish to centre.
8 Bring the typing point to the centre of your typing paper, pica 41 and elite 50.
9 From this centre half, backspace once for every two letters on the horizontal line and
type the first line at the point reached.
10 Return the carriage to the centre and backspace once for every two letters in the
second line and type the line at the point reached.
11 Repeat these steps for the third and subsequent horizontal lines.
1 How will you centre the expression JESUS IS LORD?
2 What are the typewriter typefaces?

TOPIC: – PROCEDURE FOR ERASING IN TYPEWRITING
In typewriting work, errors and mistakes must be corrected. If the typewriter eraser is being used, first move the carriage so that the mistake is outside the typebasket. Then turn up the paper so that the error, or mistake rests on the erasing table of the carriage. If the rubber eraser is being used, lightly rub the mistake up and down until the mistake is cleared. If on the other hand, the correcting fluid is being used, rub the tin liquid across themistake, and allow to dry. After making the correction,return the roller to the line of typing and type in the correction.
MATERIALS FOR ERASING INCLUDE:
1 Tipp-ex/ correcting fluid
2 Typing eraser
3 Automatic typing eraser
4 Red liquid fluid
