Is there a name to differentiate abbreviations that come before or after the word it refers to or relates to?
St. Michael's Church (In this situation St. always comes before St. ____ )
I picked him up on 5th st. (In this situation st. comes after its related word ____ st.)
- Some abbreviations typically come before (Mr., Mrs., Mt.)
- Some abbreviations typically come after (st., Inc.)
- Some abbreviations might be in the middle (vs.)
- Some abbreviations won't fit these categories (i.e., e.g., etc.)
Are there any terms to differentiate the different types of abbreviations (e.g. something like prefix and suffix abbreviations)?
