In Reply to: Some obscure abbreviations posted by Miri Barak on January 12, 2004
: I have some abbreviations. The context is either grammer or Biblical only. I tried to look for clues or solutions but to no avail.
: I will be very grateful to any answer.
: Vrss. rd.
: inf. cstr. vb. I guess inf - is infinitive and vb. is verb. what is cstr.?
: Thank you very much
Yes, they do seem to be very obscure. I've checked several dictionaries and only 'inf = informal' matches any of your examples. 'Verb' is usually denoted as 'v,' so I don't think 'vb' = 'verb.' Could you provide some examples of the abbreviations in context?
