;;Here is alist of frequent short words in American
;usage. Note the US but not UK usage uses dots (periods, 'full stops'.)
;I do not know British Air rank abbrs. Actual US militry usage internally
;is, e. g. "MGEN Brasshat." They put this on the entrances to their bases
;also on their official lists. There are many enlisted ranks.
; Consult also CHICAGO MANUAL OF STYLE 14th ed. Ch. 14, p. 459ff.
; query: what about TRAILING honorifics e.g., "Prof. John Q. Smith, Jnr., M.D., F.R.S.,
;F.R.C.P." and such like?

Supv. ; do. [="ditto"]
Abp. ; Archbishop (R. C .C usage)
