New version, being updated

UPDATE NOTE: The below table has been compiled from the previous version, with removals (Some common-names, as they are not acceptable standards) and additions to comply with Australian, (English) Canadian, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States standards. The words abbreviation/s are used below, however refer to both abbreviation/s and acronym/s.


Other abbreviations

Prefixes, directional abbreviations and other (non-suffix) abbreviations should not be used.

  • Prefix abbreviations include: Mount (Mt.), and Saint (St.).
Although they are common, can cause issues as variation 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 document name was "Clair Lake" it would be.
  • 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.
  • 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. This includes that or localities and regions.
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.
Likewise an Island named "Island Island" would be abbreviated to Island Is
