Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire.

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}}.
