    abbreviations

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Krispee, Aug 1, 2020.

    Hi.
    I'm writing a short, science fiction, and was wondering about abbreviations. I'm thinking of HUD, or hud, for heads up display, but it's true for all abb's really..
    My question is; do you write it in caps or lowercase?

    Regards.
    Kris

    On Wikipedia 'head-up display' (HUD) - abbreviation is written in caps.

    @ Rad Scribbler - Thanks.

    Just wondering if there was an unwritten rules kind of thing where they expect you to write abb's in a certain way. I'm about to start submitting this particular story to sci-fi mags and didn't want to screw it up with a little thing like that. I know that that's unlikely, and I'm being a bit anal, but, you know, just dotting the i's.
