Question

Correct abbreviations of..

Astrid Creuzburg Astrid Creuzburg (1) on 14/12/13

Hey! I'm looking for the "correct" or official abbreviations of some words (if they even exist). Looking up several dictionaries, they always ended up giving me different results depending on what country it was from..

  • something
  • somebody
  • someone
  • probably ("prolly"?)
  • circa
  • additionally
  • (an) account
  • and so on

Thanks!

Astrid, I'm afraid that there are no official acronyms for these words, at least for "somebody" and "something", because the acronyms we know are only for us, English leaners. The article here - http://voices.yahoo.com/what-sth-stands-why-represents-7335556.html - is about these two words. Perhaps it works for the others in your list.

The only ones I was able to find were on abbreviations.com. I've never seen any for the other words in your list.

  1. something = sth
  2. circa = CA
  3. additionally = addnl
  4. account = acct
