contraction

contraction; preferred name
contraction; Source: Proposed; data element name

PID: http://www.isocat.org/datcat/DC-354

Identifier: contraction   Type: simple   Origin: Proposed for inclusion in the Terminology profile   Profile: Terminology

Is a: abbreviated form

Definition: An abbreviated form resulting from the shortening of a word, syllable, or word group by omission of a sound or letter and in some languages, the inclusion of an apostrophe.
Source: Not listed in 12620:1999

Example: Intern'l for International in a full or short form version of a term or name.
Source: Not in 12620:1999

Explanation: The use of the apostrophe is most common in English and in some cases French. This item is not an official inclusion in TBX because it is not widely considered a common occurrence in terminology work.
Source: SEW

Note: 2013:02: Suggestion made in the context of the TBX discussion: An abbreviated form created by the introduction of an apostrophe as a placeholder for omitted letters or syllables. The origin of this item in the DCR is unclear at this point, and a discussion needs to resolve whether this item is synonymous with /short form/. The other question is whether such items are truly documented in terminologies or whether this is strictly in the province of lexicography.

Is a: abbreviated form

Definition: An abbreviated form resulting from the combination of initial letters or syllables (from each or some of the elements) of the full form and pronounced letter by letter.
Source: Proposed revision; TBX discussion group

Example: full form: bovine spongiform encephalopathy short form: BSE
Source: SALT

Explanation: The distinction between acronyms and initialisms can vary from language to language. The description given here applies to English.
Source: SALT

Note: 2013-02: Suggestion that would comply with changes suggested in the context of TBX-Basic: An abbreviated form made up of the initial letters of the components of the full form of the designation and pronounced letter by letter. Further note: The suggestion eliminates "or from syllables of the full form" because it is not apparent that initialisms that are pronounced letter by letter follow this pattern.

Note: Old 12620 definition: An abbreviation made up of the initial letters of the components of the full form of the designation or from syllables of the full form and pronounced letter by letter.
