The title of the post translated to English is: “To be continued – what is the correct spelling of the popular abbreviation?”

The phrase “ciąg dalszy nastąpi” is commonly used both in its standard form and in an abbreviated form. However, the question arises as to how to correctly write the abbreviation. Where should the dots be placed in order for the abbreviation to be correct?

Answers to these burning questions are provided by Słownik skrótów i skrótowców (Dictionary of Abbreviations and Acronyms) by Jerzy Podracki. According to this source, a dot should be placed at the end of the multi-word abbreviation if its second or subsequent word begins with a consonant. This is precisely the case with the expression “ciąg dalszy nastąpi”, for which the correct abbreviation is “cdn.“.
