as far as i can tell, it is mostly pretty general messageboard lingo.

imo/imho: in my opinion, in my honest opinion
hth: hope that helps
js/jsia: just sharing/just sharing is all (i think)
rl/irl: real life/in real life
t14: top 14 (can also do t2, t3, t4 for each tier)
HYS: Harvard/Yale/Stanford
ttt: third tier toilet

tha's all that comes to mind right now...

thanks brittany!  there are too many new ones every day to keep up with and i don't think there is any really good reason we can't extend info. to the newbies.  we are not, after all, "the most pprestigious law school forum on the web."

www.m-w.com

Main Entry: ab·bre·vi·a·tion
Pronunciation: &-"brE-vE-'A-sh&n
Function: noun
1 : the act or result of abbreviating : ABRIDGMENT
2 : a shortened form of a written word or phrase used in place of the whole <amt is an abbreviation for amount>

I think I have to go with shears on this one.... an abbreviation is a shoretened word, such as adv. for advanced, pls. for please,  dept. for department, etc. (for et cetera!)
