''' ''Prefixes, directional abbreviations and other (non-suffix) abbreviations should not be used, except for state/ territory abbreviations & country abbreviations; under ISO 3166-1 alpha-3.'' '''
 
 
 
1. Prefix abbreviations include: Mount (Mt.), and Saint (St.)
 
Note: Mount (Mt.) is not the same as Mountain (Mtn.).
 
:*Although they are common, can cause issues as variation and overlap exists between naming, usage, and prefix standards (I.e. What words to, and how to, abbreviate).
 
:*Therefore a lake named "Lake Clair" would not be abbreviated, while if its documented name was "Clair Lake" it would be.
 
 
 
2. Directional abbreviations include: East (E), South West (SW), Central (CN), Upper (UP), and Lower (LR).
 
:*In addition to not being abbreviated, directions should only be included when they are a part of the documented name, and not a suffix or prefix added at a later stage to describe location or orientation/ direction.
 
 
 
3. Other abbreviations include: Island (Is.), Quay (Qy), Reserve (Res) and Tunnel (Tunl).
 
:*These are acceptable to be used when they are a suffix, but not acceptable when they are place names.
 
:*Therefore "King-Tunnel Road" should have tunnel spelt in full, as it refers to a tunnel. While "Queen Tunnel-Road" could have tunnel abbreviated, as tunnel refers to the type of roadway, and is a part of the suffix.
 
:*Likewise an Island named "Island Island" would be abbreviated to Island Is.
 
 
 
4. The exception to the above is abbreviations for states and or territories; and countries with their three character abbreviation. These contain correct punctuation. Other regions do not fall under this category.
 
:*For example: California would be abbreviated to C.A. not CA and Victoria to VIC.
 
:*Country abbreviations are done under "ISO 3166-1 alpha-3". Further information can be found on Wikipedia. ([http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-3 ISO 3166:])
 
:*Other regions include that of Suburbs, Districts, Localities, Shires and special purpose areas. (I.e. Indigenous, Military and Airport areas.)
 
 
 
==Standard Suffix Abbreviations==
 
Waze convention is to use suffix abbreviations in street names. ("Main Rd" instead of "Main Road").
 
 
 
'''Notes:'''
 
 
 
1. Only abbreviate suffixes.
 
:*"The Avenue", "The Green ", and etc. should not be abbreviated.   
 
:*"Circuit Avenue Road" would be abbreviated to Circuit Avenue Rd and not "Cct Ave Rd"
 
:*A road named "Service way" should not be abbreviated, while "Pipeline Service way" should be.
 
 
 
2. Suffix abbreviations do not contain any punctuation, such as "." (Full-stops) or "-" (Hyphens).
 
 
 
3. In the event that the original suffix is a plural (I.e contains a "s" at the end) and only its singular form is present as an abbreviation, simply add an "s" to the end of the abbreviation.
