Netiquette IQ Blog Of 1/16/2018 - Latin Abbreviations



from thoughtco.com
A.M. stands for ante meridiem and is sometimes abbreviated a.m. or am. A.M. means before noon and refers to morning. It starts just after midnight.
P.M.
P.M. stands for post meridiem and is sometimes abbreviated p.m. or pm. P.M. refers to afternoon and evening. P.M. starts just after noon.
Etc.
The very familiar Latin abbreviation etc. stands for et cetera 'and the rest' or 'and so forth'. In English, we use the word etcetera or et cetera without necessarily being aware it is actually Latin.
If you want to say 'for example,' you would use 'e.g.' Here is an example:
  • Some of the Julio-Claudian emperors, e.g., Caligula, were said to be insane.
I.E.
If you want to say 'that is,' you would use 'i.e.' Here is an example:
  • The last of the Julio-Claudians, i.e., Nero....
In Citations
Ibid
Ibid., from ibidem means 'the same' or 'in the same place.' You would use ibid.
to refer to the same author and work (e.g., book, html page, or journal article) as the one immediately preceding.
Op. Cit.
Op. cit. comes from the Latin opus citatum or opere citato 'work cited.' Op. cit. is used when ibid. is inappropriate because the immediately preceding work is not the same. You would only use op.
cit. if you have already cited the work in question.
Et Seq.
To refer to a certain page or passage and those that follow it, you may find the abbreviation 'et seq.' This abbreviation ends in a period. 
Sc.
The abbreviation sc. or scil. means 'namely'. Wikipedia says it is in the process of being replaced by i.e.
Latin Abbreviations of Comparison q.v. and c.f.
You would use q.v. if you wanted to make reference to something elsewhere in your paper; while
c.f. would be more appropriate for a comparison with an outside work.
