Category:Abbreviations

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Most of us fall short much more by omission than by commission. While the world perishes we go our way: purposeless, passionless, day after day.

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}}.
