I think these words speak to the art that is court reporting. 🎨

Reporters have to capture exactly what was said, but preparation of the transcript can get tricky when it’s unclear how to represent an unusual word or phrase. Think textspeak or certain nouns unexpectedly being used as verbs. There’s wiggle room for invention in how we capture our ever-changing language, but you still gotta consult that dictionary before choosing what goes on the transcript page. 📄

I’m a proofreader, and I’m here to help with those tricky decisions, if you’d like me to. 😉
