Abridge is a transitive verb.It means to shorten by condensation or omission while retaining the basic contents (The Random House Webster's College Dictionary).Proper use: Audio book publishers often abridge novels so they require fewer tapes.Improper use: The stream was small and we abridged it easily.Use as a noun: I'll cross that abridge when i come to it.It isn't a noun and, most often, should not be used as one.

To abridge means to shorten. It is usually used of books - very long books were often published in abridged versions.
