What would the hypernym of acronym, abbreviation, and symbol be? I know that abbreviation is a hypernym for Initialism and Acronym, but is there a word that includes abbreviation and symbols, I'm referring to mathematical symbols mostly. Somthing like xmin instead of the longer term: The minimum value of x.
The reason I think such a word might exist is because there is some amount of overlap between the terms: They are all a set of terms that can be used to shorten and simplify a more difficult to read term.
It is for the name of a chapter that lists all the above used in a thesis, and I did not think glossary quite covered it.
The word will be combined with Nomenclature in the title, i.e. “Hypernym and Nomenclature”. Previously this question asked for a Hypernym of all of acronym, abbreviation, symbols and nomenclature. However, it was pointed out that this question was too broad, and the inclusion of nomenclature probably made it impossible to answer, that there was little overlap between the nomenclature and the other three terms.
