Category:Abbreviations

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Some people go through life trying to find out what the world holds for them only to find out too late that it's what they bring to the world that really counts. OR It's not what the world holds for you it's what you bring to it

Abbreviations are shortened forms of words. Acronyms and initialisms are sub-categories of abbreviations:

  • Acronyms are pronounced as the "word" they would spell (e.g., NATO).
  • Initialisms are pronounced letter by letter (e.g., USA).

This category lists translingual abbreviations that do not fall into those two sub-classifications. Pages are added to this category using {{abbreviation}}, or to a subcategory using {{abbreviation|Language}}.
