The small c of ordinary writing, disjoined, stands for the prefix contra, contro, (and counter in “ counteract'); and with the shorthand b affixed, stands for “ contribute-tion; with the shorthand f, for “ contrive, contrivance.”

GENERAL RULES OF CONTRACTION. The writing of any character under another character implies that the letter t, coming between them, has been omitted. The outline for a word will often serve also for a longer derivative. Thus, the form for“ detain ” (n under d) also means “detention "; the form for “maintain” (n under m) also means mainten. ance,” This rule may be widely practised, with great advantage. The termination tion may frequently be omitted.
