(Kash) Not in mss., but several are given in the
ki (< (aran) kayi 'name alive') animate (noun) (in grammar)
trk (< (aran) trakayi 'name un-alive') inanimate (noun) " "
my (moyondi, old (now irreg.) 'its pattern') for example
vi (vihatni 'its specific') to wit, i.e.
mm (mule-mulet < mulet 'backwards') vice-versa
pp (pinal puna 'number+house') street address (on forms e.g.)
lkr (lekramon < lero kamon day+born 'birthday') date of birth " "
(tr and kr are single characters)
