Principles Writing system DEK is based on indirect indication of vowels. There are several graphemes for common consonant -sequences and for single consonants, too. Vowels are indicated through the positional relation of two following consonant-graphemes in the line-system.
Furthermore not only the relation is relevant, but the line pressure, too. That is why DEK is designed for pencils. Up-lines are not written with a heavy line for speed reasons. All in all, shorthand reduces words to syllables , where whole syllables are written at once.
Beside the basic system there is a huge set of static unpaired abbreviations. These additional symbols must be learned by repetition. A text in Verkehrsschrift can be produced at a rate of 80 to syllables per minute. Eilschrift and particularly Redeschrift employ contractions and other simplifications to a far greater extent, making rates of up to syllables per minute possible.
This enables real-time recordings of speeches. The current speed record using DEK is syllables per minute and was achieved by Josef Hrycyk in Someone might get mixed up with total different systems. Criticism DEK faced a lot of criticism esp. In consequence, there have been efforts to create simpler shorthand systems that can be learned more quickly but may not achieve comparable speeds. One of these alternative systems is Stiefografie.
