A Computer Based System for the Development and Analysis of Vocabulary Controlled Dictation Materials.
Gallion, Leona M.; Kavan, C. Bruce
The paper describes a project designed to develop and implement a computer based system to be utilized in the design and analysis of vocabulary-controlled dictation material. The system is based on the use of the 1,500 most frequently used words in business communications (as established by Mellinger), and words are coordinated with the theory lessons in beginning Gregg shorthand textbooks. As such, the dictation material generated under these conditions provides a fundamentally structured approach to speed building. The use of vocabulary-controlled dictation material tends to alleviate many of the dysfunctions associated with the use of nonvocabulary controlled dictation materials. (Author)
