English term or phrase:KJEUTRDA
This is an english word in stenography. I know EU is the letter combination for the letter "i" but I haven't been able to figure out the rest. Thank you in advance for your time.
...(called chords in the Wikipedia article) to obtain the stenography symbol or symbols for the word. In order to decode this to obtain the word, you have to divide the letters into the appropriate groups and then work backwards. For that you need...
Aha: now I see what you mean. If a symbol stenography system is being used, KJEUTREA is not an English word in stenography or shorthand, but instead the combination of letters that would be pressed sequentially, in various groups...
Are you sure it's in stenography? Because I don't see how 'EU' is SHORT for the letter 'i'. The other way round would make more sense!

Explanation: Do you know which stenography system is being used?
Some shorthand systems attempted to ease learning by using characters from the Latin alphabet. Such systems have often been described as alphabetic, and purists might claim that such systems are not true shorthand. However, these non-symbol systems do have value for students who cannot dedicate the years necessary to master a symbol shorthand. Non-symbol shorthands cannot be written at the speeds theoretically possible with symbol systems - 200 words per minute or more - but require only a fraction of the time to acquire a useful speed of between 60 and 100 words per minute.
Non-symbol systems often supplement alphabetic characters by using punctuation marks as additional characters, giving special significance to capitalised letters, and sometimes using additional non-alphabetic symbols. Examples of such systems include Stenoscript, Stenospeed, Speedwriting, Forkner shorthand and "Alpha". However, there are some pure alphabetic systems, including Personal Shorthand, SuperWrite, EasyScript & Agiliwriting, which limit their symbols to purely alphabetic characters. These have the added advantage that they can also be typed - for instance, onto a computer, PDA or cellphone. Interestingly, early editions of Speedwriting were also adapted so that they could be written on a typewriter, and therefore would possess the same advantage.
