This article compares shorthand writings of rakugo (comical stories) published during the Meiji Period and their spoken versions recorded on 78 rpm disks during the same period. It examines characteristics of language use in the two media, particularly focusing on identical stories by the same storytellers.Although similarities are to be found in the structure of the stories and lexical choice, they bear little resemblance in terms of the characteristics of spoken language. The findings suggest that it is necessary to investigate the characteristics of shorthand writings as a linguistic resource, before we make use of them for research as representative of spoken Japanese in the Early Modern Period.
