kepeken[edit | edit source]
The three-letter abbreviations kkn, kpk, and kpn cannot be mistaken for any other nimi ku or nonstandard word. kep only overlaps with okepuma, an obscure nimi sin.[a] The possible two-letter abbreviation kk conflicts with several nimi ku. However, it is unique among nimi pu, though probably extremely unclear. Every other two-letter abbreviation is more ambiguous.
kijetesantakalu[edit | edit source]
kijetesantakalu is often shortened to kijete or kije. Some speakers dislike this, as the original point of the word was to be overly long, while proponents of these abbreviations may like and use the word for unrelated reasons.
From sitelen pona[edit | edit source]
Some words are abbreviated based on their corresponding sitelen pona glyphs.
Headnouns[edit | edit source]
When referring to someone, their headnoun may be abbreviated as a single letter and attached to the name word without a space, such as soweli Keju becoming sKeju. Modifiers get their own letters, so akesi wawa Lupon becomes awLupon. Abbreviating headnouns in this way is attested as early as 2009.
Numbers[edit | edit source]
Number words may be written as their first letters, capitalized and without spaces between them. For example, ale ale mute luka luka wan could be written as AAMLLW.
