Abbreviate: adjective - shorten, cut short. Noun - An abridgement.

‘Gloozan, the mythical monster from the underworld, threatened to abbreviate the hero, Parrostalsis, by removing his head; a singularly effective way of cutting him down to size.’

Some abbreviations, as examples:


AWOL = absent without leave,

NB = nota bene (note well).
