We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear Linguists,

I am looking for a list of clipped forms in English (such as VET for
VETERINARY SURGEON, PHONE for TELEPHONE, COMBO for COMBINATION, etc.) to
carry out a statistical study concerning the frequency of use of the
clipped forms and the ''original'' forms.

Has anyone heard of such a list or of such a corpus?

Thanks a lot.

Best regards,
