"Lab" for "laboratory", or "a.s.o." for "and so on", or D.I.Y. or UFO, of the UK, or the name of a party, or NGO, etc (which is also an abbreviation of the Latin "et caetera). I have forgotten Au for gold (chemical symbols), T for Time (physics), n for "noun" (grammar), plus the new MSN ones, which you must know much better than me...
