Abbreve Philos

Abbreve – This is basically shortening every word.  It came about basically because we are all lazy people and don’t want to say the whole word.  Why say the whole word when the other person can understand half of it?  By doing this you can be more efficient in your speech:  you will save time and energy, and be able to say more in the same amount of time.  And of course, it’s fun.  BTW, even the word philos has been abbreeved.
