Abbreviations are shortened forms of words or phrases.

Use abbreviations when they're well known and appropriate to use.

For these abbreviations, use a comma beforehand:

  • etc. - 'more of the same'
  • i.e. - 'in other words'
  • e.g. - ‘for example’

Use lower case for numerical abbreviations.
