Um, we’re not that kind of journal

This is why scientists, especially those whose first language isn’t English, should not be allowed to make their own abbreviations. The key to one of the tables in the article I’m working on labels three different lines as follows:

Anal. without lateral contraction

Anal. with lateral contraction

Anal. with lateral contraction and initial imperfection

Anyone dare comment on the initial imperfection? (Cover your ears, Downith.)
