Abbreviation

An abbreviation is typically a shortened form of words used to represent the whole.
It can be used to clarify certain parts of your text or make it a bit shorter.
An examples of an abbreviation within phpBB is the “Re:” before replies, which is short for “in re”.
Not to be confused with an acronym.
