    • viz An abbreviation of videlicet, usually read ‘namely.’ The z here, as in oz., represents a medieval symbol of contraction (a symbol also represented by a semicolon), originally a ligature for the Latin et, and (and so equivalent to the symbol &), extended to represent the termination -et and the enclitic conjunction -que, and finally used as a mere mark of abbreviation, equivalent in use to the period as now so used, viz being equivalent to vi., and not originally requiring the period after it.
