Do not use an abbreviation or acronym that your readers would not recognize quickly. , edited by Mary Rose Bonk and published in its twenty-seventh edition in 2000 by Gale Research Incorporated. The purpose of writing is communication, and anything that may cause confusion should be avoided. I.s (this week), but that’s just me saving a keystroke, probably.
In general, use abbreviations in charts, tables, graphs, footnotes, bibliographies, and other places where space is at a premium. are likely to think you mean the word ‘am’ and misread, or at least have to pause to see what it is you really mean. means “after noon,” use no other expression of time of day with them. Here is a place where it’s useful to have a copy of your discipline’s style book. If I pick a style-sheet and stick with it, at least my choice is defensible should anybody take issue with it. Reference the full name first in the body of the text with the abbreviation in parenthesis. may either be written in all capital letters or all lower case, but choose one style and stick with it. None of these abbreviations are separated by commas. (OK informally; not standard use, no number.) Correct: We will meet at p.m. Corbett notes that, ) do call for using an apostrophe in the plural of abbreviations that include periods. Hence a "47" marking on a 1930's pen indicate that the pen was produced in the fourth quarter of 1937, not 1947, which is a common misconception. In the second quarter of 1938 this system was however changed to save production time, and a new date code, using a system of dots, was adopted. The average reader tends to know only the most popular acronyms. Government includes links to Internet servers when available. Writing for secular, international consumption, it makes sense to utilize CE and BCE with or without periods depending upon your discipline’s style sheet. Just don’t be surprised when that varies from one venue to another. – Doctor of Philosophy (most universities) Rare: DPhil – Doctor of Philosophy (Oxford University and a few others) pseud.
Here are some helps: The Appendix A: Abbreviations lists international abbreviations and Appendix B: International Organizations and Groups contains information about missions and memberships of international organizations. Acronym Finder covers common acronyms, computers, technology, and telecommunications, with an emphasis on Department of Defense (Do D), Air Force, Army, and Navy acronyms. Correct: Alexander ruled in the fourth century BCE. These are perhaps superior to the English “n.p.,” which must stand equally for “no place,” “no publisher,” or “no page,” but in English publications “n.p.,” used correctly, is more likely to be understood; recommends “n.p.” Note that “n.p.” can stand in for both publisher and place, if neither is known. (Back) Record management and managers: The length of time material is archived varies widely. For example, NASA may mean the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Auto Sport Association, National Assistance Services Australia, etc. These abbreviations may be used in all types of writing but only with numbers or a numerical reference. The idea is that a combination of uppercase letters, periods and a lowercase ‘s’ is confusing at first glance, and that the apostrophe helps a reader see that the ‘s’ has been added to make a plural.” Well, OK, then. The first time you use an abbreviation or acronym that might be misunderstood by any part of your potential five year audience*, spell it out and then put the abbreviation in parenthesis. The Brits leave out the periods (e.g., 8 am), but here in the U. That suggests that the jury’s still out on that one, but some pretty big guns back the apostrophe (M. Still, authorities fight fiercely about these things, so it’s wise to look it up and go with the style sheet your professor, textbook, company, or government agency uses or recommends. To Grafton and Williams the importance of the consisted of two parts: in the first (‘the chronography’), "Eusebius treated the history of each ancient people or empire separately, listing their rulers or magistrates, the years of their reigns, and the events which took place in those years; in the second (‘the chronological canons’), he tried to reconcile the various chronologies and historical narratives current in the ancient world, by laying out their histories in a tabular format which would allow the reader to look across the columns and to compare what was going on in the different kingdoms at the same time.It was second part which was revolutionary, and it was this section which was translated and made available to the Latin West by Jerome.His use of the tabular format was influenced by the columnar arrangement of Origen's into two parts, the Chronography and the Canons.
