More examples?

pp is the abbreviation of pages (the plural form of page), not Latin?

@Region Philbis,


The point is: can we sometimes write letters as ll according to this rule?

@oristarA,

"p" is a common abbreviation for "page".
from that we get "pp" for "pages".

it's not a rule, just another strange quirk of the english language...

Move this quirk along... Only if it pleases us and others?
