"BMS World Mission is a Christian missionary society founded by Baptists from England in 1792. It was originally called the Particular Baptist Society for the Propagation of the Gospel Amongst the Heathen, but for most of its life was known as the Baptist Missionary Society."
The original name didn't age well...
- many shorthands, especially phonetic ones, are abjads and lack the full metadata around vowels which make context extremely important to understanding meaning.
- It's typical for a shorthand writer to make have unique markings for words they write frequently which may not match the phonetic pattern (if that's even being used) which are hard to guess
- shorthand is hard to parse in general because the strokes typically value flow over precision, so secondary and third strokes are usually are formed in relation to the prior ones rather than any absolute positioning scheme
But really, I just don't think there are many people actually working on trying to solve old short hands with modern statistics + ML techniques. Maybe I'm wrong though and someone gave it a good go but something here really was particularly hard to solve.
Also, I was wondering if someone had already made the "f y cn rd ths" joke about abjads; the answer is yes!
My best chance at reading my own handwriting is to ask: "Now, what would I have meant here?" ;-) I hope nobody ever tries to read my notebooks.
 There are certain universal phonological "Universals" that applies to 99.99% of languages. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linguistic_universal But still these don't let us find the entire structure of a language, and we have to use other techniques. Such as comparative study to other languages, finding loan words we know (e.g. finding the word "computer" or "Jesus" in a text of unknown language with unknown alphabet)
Interestingly (to me, at least), this is also how I remember where I put something if I've misplaced it. I ask myself, and really try to visualize, if I were putting that thing away right now, where would I put it, and what was I just doing with it that might give me a bit more context about where I might leave it for myself cleverly next time? It usually works.
