[Spanish Class] Learn the Spanish Abbreviations You Should Know

Unlike in English, where most abbreviations are capitalized, many Spanish abbreviations are not. Generally, abbreviations that are capitalized are personal titles (such as Sr. and Dr., even though the words themselves are not capitalized when spelled out) and those derived from proper nouns. But there are exceptions. :nerd_face:

Note also that, as in English, some abbreviations are used with or without periods varying with the style of writer or publication. The points of the compass usually aren’t abbreviated in running text. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Here are the most common Spanish abbreviations. This list is far from complete, as Spanish has hundreds of abbreviations. :face_with_monocle:

Did you know some of these? what others do you know? :wink:
