"a S. S. Sheppard reperta est."[fontem recensere]

Quia littera S Latine enuntiatur es (sic ait W. Sidney Allen), fortasse melius "ab S. S. Sheppard reperta est." IacobusAmor 19:33, 14 Ianuarii 2010 (UTC)

I think not. I was taught to write in such cases as if the speaker would speak the full word, not the abbreviation. Anyone else have a view on this? Any help from style guides? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 21:06, 14 Ianuarii 2010 (UTC)
No, OK, I see Eric Partridge (Usage and Abusage) agrees with you. To two sensible stylists I straightway submit. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 21:10, 14 Ianuarii 2010 (UTC)
