help for the English

  1. Iam an English Registered Nurse who enjoys following the discussions of my American colleages, but I don't understand all the abreviations and terms. How about a glossary to help the English . Many thanks.

    "Real" abbreviations, or "slang" abbreviations?

    It's funny how we all speak English, but we really do speak different languages sometimes!
