Bio. vs. Biog.

Did you know that the abbreviation for biography is biog.?

Most people think that the abbreviation for biography is bio., but that's not true!! I just learned in spelling that the correct abbreviation for biography is actually biog., not bio.! Weird, huh? It seems really interesting to me, because I always hear people say stuff about bio's not biog's.

Abbreviations are very useful. They take up a lot less time than writing a full word. Of course, it’s useful for other things to. Like if you don’t know how to spell a word, just use an abbreviation, such as mdse. for merchandise or inc. for incorporated.

Sometimes, though, abbreviations can be hard. Like oz., in ounces, is weird because there is no ‘z’ in ounces. Another example would be in lb. for pound. In that abbreviation ‘l’ and ‘b’ are both not in pound, yet we will usually write it that way. So you see, abbreviations can be very useful, but very confusing.
