Abstract

The use of abbreviations for long-distance communication conserves time and transmission facilities. To aid maintenance the abbreviations used here are recognizable by humans as such, so that garble can be distinguished from valid messages. Data words identical with abbreviations are sent with unique designations which are recognized and removed at the receiver.
