The reduction formulas under consideration are those for which the conditions upon the variables are other than 'fixed values'. Known results are discussed, and some new formulas are derived by series manipulations from various known summation and transformation theorems. The ten functions in this class are compared with respect to the least number of parameter conditions required for particular types of reduction formulas. For some of the ten functions, reduction formulas of these types do not exist at all, while there are many in other cases.
