> I thought the consensus was not to abbreviate and always use the full name?
> I think Andrew was saying he sees signs that say "Some Rd" (sometimes fits
on a smaller sign so cheaper) and wants to know what 'Rd' means to enter the
full word into OSM. It means Road of course, but others are harder to know.
The name finder (search) works both ways so that people searching for "Some
Rd" will be given "Some Road"(as Andrew entered it) and the other way
because not everyone follows consensus and enters abbreviations into OSM.
