Versus v. Vs.

Play episode
The word versus can be abbreviated any of several ways. In legal contexts in the United States, it’s usually abbreviated as v., as in Supreme Court decisions on Brown v. Board of Education or Roe v. Wade. In less formal situations, such as sports contests, it’s commonly abbreviated as vs., as in Mets vs. Giants. In British English, the period is often left off, as in Manchester United vs Leeds. For more formal writing, spell out the word as versus. The vice can be used to mean “in place of” or “replacing” if someone fills in for someone else. This is part of a complete episode.
