US States abbreviations
Transcript of US States abbreviations

Identify the abbreviations of the US states during a call.
Use the abbreviations in correspondence.
Pronounce the different states names correctly
A state in the US is
to be a
state, of the United States of America that shares its
with the federal government. There are a total of 50 states since the admission of Hawaii as a state in August 1959,
Only one of these four can get MI. We can't use the last letter: MI and MA are already taken. We could give MN to Michigan, but then what would be used for Minnesota? Every other letter in Minnesota is used by another state
It makes sense to give MT to Montana, because "Mt" is an abbreviation for "mountain," and "mountain" and "Montana" have the same root.
Most often, either the first two letters get used, or else the first and last letters are used. In some cases. Other times, one answer simply seems more intuitive than the other (Ohio as OH instead of OO). Sometimes a prominent consonant is used instead of the second or last letter, particularly when following the 2nd- or last-letter algorithm would produce a more confusing result (Nevada as NV instead of NE or NA - which could be easily confused with Nebraska).
