Condensation indicator?: Abbr. [3]

We really take good old ETC for granted, don’t we, but if you think about it, is there any other word that so eloquently indicates that a thought has been condensed? “Abbr.,” which also appears in this clue, only manages to call out the shortening of a word. Having both at once is that extra level of detail that really makes a clue sing.
