Category:Abbreviations

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Happiness is a matter of one's most ordinary everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self. To be damned is for one's ordinary everyday mode of consciousness to be unremitting agonizing preoccupation with self.

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}}.
