NB latin abbreviation is used everywhere in French, and present in English dictionaries and wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nota_bene , but quite often English speaking people ask me what it means. So, is it unusual or deprecated in either English or American English ?
BTW, does someone know a list of latin abbreviations
- that are "standard" and commonly used in English too (like I.e. , P.S. or C.V.),
- vs, commonly unknown to English speakers (or American English),
- vs, used but not-so-standard, i.e., mainly used by ( American) English speakers only, like E.g. ?
Or might it be that the dots are really important, and people would understand N.b. but not NB ?
