Cursive Lowercase "r"
Posted 07 January 2014 - 15:28
This is the r the nuns taught me oh so many years ago. I've tried others, but this one will not go away.
That's the one I try to do, but it doesn't always look that good!

the way I was taught is like #2, but with a little loop at the top left bit.

If I'm writing for myself, it's an unornamented bump, not unlike a script Cyrillic lower case г; if I'm writing for others to read, it'll be more like #1.

"r" has always given me fits. I'm 52 years old and still struggle. In the past month, I've started really paying attention to cursive writing and I'm attempting to teach myself to use #1 after decades of flailing around with #2 (again, sounds like potty talk). My penmanship has always tended to be mediocre at best, so I'm really working at getting better. Practice, hopefully, will make, if not perfect, at least pretty good.
My third grade teacher would be proud of my renewed effort, I think.

I guess I may post a sample as well.
Mine is a catalan tong-twister, designed to teach kids pronounce the rolled "r" (and to give a hard time to those who can not): it goes "Un carro carregat de rocs corria per la carretera de Roses fent catacric-catacroc, i el carreter, carregat de ràbia, li corria al darrere" (meaning: a carriage full of rocks ran on Roses -A town- road, making cracking noises and the muleteer, full of rage, ran behind").
The above script is very close to what was taught in Finnish schools in the early 80s. The "p" was different here, though (assuming that the third to last letter on the first line is a "p").

If the same interest was shown in the rest of the 26 letters, this would result in a total of more than half a million views!!!

i voted for #2. In the real world, it's almost always some variation of that - it never comes out looking quite right, but i'm making some progress... some. that's the way i was taught in elementary school, and i'm pretty sure that my mother uses the same style of 'r', so i learned that style from two sides.

I also voted for #2 because it's the closest to how I write my lower case r. Actually mine looks more like the Cyrillic letter Π than a classic cursive "r" but most people can read it.
