“Hi, I’m Sam.”

“Isn’t that a boy’s name?”

“It’s short for Samantha.”

When a word or phrase is too long, we can abbreviate it or make it shorter. Then we say the shortened version is “short for” the longer version. Do you know what “DNA” is short for? What is short for “the United States of America”?




単語やフレーズが長すぎるとき省略、つまり短くすることができます。短いバージョンは「short for」と言います。「DNA」は何の略か知っていますか?「アメリカ合衆国」の略は?
