Abbreviations used by members of TMG-L

When learning TMGish (that's like English, Spanish, etc) it is hard enough to learn all the new words, but we on TMG-L ( TMG-L@rootsweb.com) also use abbreviations of those new words and for a newbie (that's anyone who is unfamiliar with TMG) those abbreviations can be quite confusing. :) If you would like to join us on TMG-L, send an email to TMG-L-Request@rootsweb.com and put Subscribe in the subject line. Don't put anything in the message.
