Grammar Lesson – “Abbreviation”

Abbreviation


The Grammatical Term “Abbreviation” is a term which refers to a shortened form of a word or (sometimes) phrase.


For Example:

Wisconsin (the state I grew up in) is abbreviated as WI

Previously It was abbreviated as Wisc. then Wis. and now simply as WI – notice that the periods disappeared and the abbreviations actually got abbreviated.  This is a convention of all the states in the United States.

The United States of America is abbreviated as USA or even more simply the US
