Name finder:Abbreviations

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of abbreviations recognised by the Name Finder and Nominatim by language. Please help by adding to the list so we can broaden it to more languages.

The list is in alphabetical order (in the native tongue) and by alphabetical order by word. If there is more than one abbreviation for a word, please use a separate entry for it.

Abbreviations work both ways: so if someone has tagged a street Saint Johns St, then users can also expect a match for St Johns St, St Johns Street and Saint Johns Street (and also, incidentally, St John's St or St John St etc.), and vice-versa.

(*) Concatenated? means the abbreviation is used as part of a larger word, e.g. "...straat" is concatenated in words street names like "Koningsstraat" which might be abbreviated to "Koningsstr.". Separable? means: if the abbreviation is concatenated, can it ever be separated as well.

NEW: use the column Prefix/Suffix to indicate if the abbreviated word normally appears in front of the name (prefix, e.g. Saint) or at the end (suffix, e.g Street).

Besides the preposition de, another usual construct is to use el, lo, la, l', es, sa, s' els, los, les,or ses (all translate to the) just after de. Note that "de el", "de lo", "de es", "de los" and "de els" contracts theirself to "del", "del", "des", "dels", and "dels" in most cases.

They're not abbreviations, but possibly worth mentioning are the many "Im Blah", "In der Blah", "Am Blah", "An der Blah", "Zum Blah" names. When working on weighting algorithms, you definitely don't want to weight things as similar just because they have "In der" or whatever in common.

German streetnames are build using '-' instead of a space for two and more word namings, i.e. 'St.-Hubertus-Straße' (grammatically not correct but sometimes seen are 'St. Hubertus Straße' or 'Sankt Hubertus Straße').

There are also the very common prefixes 'Alt-', 'Neu-', 'Nieder-', 'Unter-', 'Ober-', 'Groß-', 'Klein-', that are mostly concatenated, but not always (in the case of Alt at least). They mostly come in pairs with the "base name" not existing (e.g., there is "Unterschöbling" and "Oberschöbling", but no "Schöbling").

In German, ß can become "ss", äöü become "ae", "oe" and "ue" respectively.

There is a Language-Rule that if a place/streetname ends on -er it will be writen seperatly, so "Berliner Straße" is correct, but "Berlinerstraße" is not. It would be great if for the name finder "Berliner Str." equals "Berlinerstr." and "Berliner Straße".

Español - Spanish

These abbreviations about road types are the official classification according to the National Statistical Institute (INE) of Spain. We have added some other commonly used in Spanish compiled by the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE).

Many of these types of ways (and their abbreviations) are not commonly used or their use is rare, but they are part of the official list.

Note: As a general rule the point (.) is always written behind the abbreviations, except in those cases where the point is replaced by a slash (i.e. C/).

The Royal Spanish Academy indicates that the preposition "de" (of, in english) should never be omitted in the names of streets, avenues and promenades, unless the name is an adjective: "Calle de Esproceda", "Plaza de Colón", "Avenida de América", "Paseo de Gracia", in the first case, and "Calle Mayor" or "Plaza Nueva" for the second case.

But the right way to name a street is put the preposition de (of) after of the type of road (examples: C. de Alcalá; Avda. de Pérez Galdos; Pza. de España; etc.), it's very common skip it when contracting the name.

Besides the preposition de, another usual construct is to use el, la, los or las (all translate to the) just after de: Carretera de El Pardo, Calle de los Caídos de la División Azul, Calle de las Descalzas. Note that "de el" contracts itself to "del" in most cases (except names of people or places, like El Pardo).

Only the de construct just after the street type should be contracted, e.g.: Calle de los Caídos de la División Azul => C/ de los Caídos de la División Azul => C/ los Caídos de la División Azul => C/ Caídos de la División Azul. It is generally wrong to contract to "C/ Caídos División Azul"; but it would be acceptable in very extreme cases.

These characteristics must be taken into account by search engines, considering all these prepositions as stop words.

General rule: a point (.) is needed except if the last letter is also the last letter of the word.

Not strictly about abbreviations, but: The definite form of feminine nouns can be expressed by two different suffixes: -en and -a. In place names, there is often no preference for one form. For instance, the Oslo quarter is sometimes named Majorstua, sometimes Majorstuen -- even on street signs. The name finder should be able to map between the two. This is especially true for "gaten" vs. "gata".
