Yes, this looks much better. Even I could understand them.
It seems to be much harder to come up with an abbreviation than to recognize one (although the later is sometimes hard for me too).
Is this a natural thing for most native speakers? i.e. do native speakers come up with an abbreviation without any difficulty? If there isn't any principle to follow, is it by custom (i.e. memorizing how other people abbreviate it and following suit)?
My general vocabulary isn't too bad for a non-native speaker, but abbreviated words have been bothering me for a while. Any suggestion is very much appreciated. Thank you.
