  • I had vice versa on the other list, i.e., Latin, so I did not include it here, although it certainly would qualify! Perhaps they should be listed v.v., since the full word usage is common, and the abbreviated version much less so...

  • Please add to this list! The primary qualifier is that the word should have a common abbreviation, or at least one that is employed in some discipline or specialty. If the abbreviation is not included in any of the definitions, please leave a comment with the particular definition (if more than one), and the abbreviation on the next line. Thank-you for contributing!

  • def.(n) A lover of loves. One who has fondness for the concept of loving objects, if not the love of the objects themselves directly.

    "...So she had to satisfy herself with the idea of love — loving the loving of things whose existence she didn’t care at all about. Love itself became the object of her love. She loved herself in love, she loved loving love, as love loves loving, and was able, in that way, to reconcile herself with a world that fell so short of what she would have hoped for. It was not the world that was the great and saving lie, but her willingness to make it beautiful and fair, to live a once-removed life, in a world once-removed from the one in which everyone else seemed to exist." -Brod (character), fromm 'Everything is Illuminated', by Jonathan Safran Foer
