Rules for Using Full Stop

A full stop is used to denote abbreviation. Generally, it is used if a word doesn’t have its last letter.

Ex.: Professor – Prof.
        Mister – Mr (No full stop is used here as the first and last letters are there)
        Doctor – Dr
Exception: The above is followed as per UK English. As per US English, it is written as Mr. and Dr.
