Something Useful

Nicely done

Latin abbreviations > 2015 English:

e.g. = like,
i.e. = you know,
etc. = or whatever,
et al. = or whoever,
cf. = check out,
viz. = you know

Update (20150615): let’s not forget QED:

Q.E.D. is an initialism of the Latin phrase quod erat demonstrandum, originating from the Ancient Greek [... skip the Greek letters...] meaning “which had to be proven”. The phrase is traditionally placed in its abbreviated form at the end of a mathematical proof or philosophical argument when what was specified in the enunciation—and in the setting-out—has been exactly restated as the conclusion of the demonstration. The abbreviation thus signals the completion of the proof.
