DEFINITIONS

3.1 Abbreviations. An abbreviation is a shortened form or abridgment of a word, expression or phase used to conserve space and time. 4. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

4.1 Clarity. Abbreviations shall be used only when their meanings are unquestionably clear to the intended reader. WHEN IN DOUBT, SPELL IT OUT. Abbreviations that are not in comnon use and are to be used frequently in a document or where thewis doubt that the reader will understand their meanings, should be clarified when first used: by spelling out the word or complete phrase, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. 4.2 Word combinations. Portions of an abbreviation for a word combination shall not be separated for use singly. Single abbreviations may be combined when necessary if there is no abbreviation listed for the combination. 4.3 Syntax. Unless othewise indicated herein, the same abbreviation shall be used for all tenses, the possessive case, participle endings, the singular or plural, and the noun and modifying forms of a term. 4.4 Capitalization. Abbreviations included in the left-hand column provide the form for use on drawings and documents produced in uppercase characters. The abbreviations in the right-hand column provide the form required for documents produced in lower-case characters; however, these abbreviations may be capitalized when required for emphasis. Abbreviations that are capitalized in the right-hand column are a continuation of prior usage and in general are abbreviations for major systems or are recognized as having significant application when used in text. Abbreviations are not listed in the right-hand column for many short words. If space limitations make it necessary to abbreviate such terms, the abbreviation which appears In the left-hand column shall be used except for the sllbstitutionof lower-case letters.

4.5 Punctuation.
4.5.1 Punctuation marks which do not appear in this standard shall not be used with the abbreviation of a techn~cal term; however, an abbreviation spelling a whole word should include a period if the abbreviation is not obvious to its intended reader. An exception is made for abbreviations used in computer applications wherein a hyphen (-) may be substituted for a blank space which appears in an abbreviation, eg. ‘seqchk’ in lieu of ‘seq chk’.

4.5.2 Hyphens should be used symbols, eg, a 35-nunfilm.

with

adjectival forms

of abbreviations and

4.6 Revised abbreviations. Abbreviations in this standard reflect recent changes in the state-of-the-art. 4.7 Symbols. The distinction between abbreviations and symbols is tricky, because it depends upon context, rather than form. For example, “the current is 5 amps” and “the pressure is 3 psi” are allowable uses of abbreviations, whereas writing “I = 5 amp” and “P = 3 psi” are incorrect. Whenever a mathematical operation or sign is involved, such as the equality sign (=) or the division sign (/)~ abbreviations cannot be used= Mathematical operations re performed only upon symbols; for example, !l Symbols that appear in the following docuI =5Aandp=31bf/in. ments are preferred (for example, “the current is 5 A“) in lieu of abbreviations that appear in this standard and shall be used in lieu of abbreviations for terms that do not appear herein: Chemical Symbols: Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary (International Tabl~& of Chemical Elements) b. c. d. e. Mathematical Symbols: Quantity Symbols: Unit Symbols: Metric Practices:

ANSI Y1O.2O and YIO.20a

ANSI YIO.3 and ANSI Y1O.5

ANSI/IEEE STD 260 ASTM E380

4.8 Abbreviati~ns used in existinq technical documents: Unless,o~he~ise specified, any changes or revis~ons to an existing drawing, speclflcatlon, standard, or technical document prepared under a previous edition of this standard, may use the latest abbreviations, although the superseded abbreviations may appear elsewhere in the documnt. 5.
